    positive review  Friendly owners and delicious food! Their jerk chicken is super tasty, with some actually #awesomesauce to go with it. Their sweet potatoes and collard greens are the TRUTH and the mac and cheese is Grandma-good. Already been 4 times in 2 weeks. Check them out!

  • 2 star review  Sorry I know what real jamaican food taste and their food lacked flavor. The stew chicken had no flavor and FYI jamaican restaurants don't sell collard greens, yams, or mac and cheese.

  • positive review  We were warmly greeted as we walked through the door by a staff that made you feel like you were visiting old friends in their home kitchen. The food is phenomenal to say the least. Can’t wait for my next visit, which might just be tomorrow!
