Friendly, helpful staff. It was late, we were hungry and wanted a bite to go. The only complaint that we had was the rotis were too big :-)

Ordered the signature jerk chicken dish which I found bland and suffered stomach issues for hours afterwards. Wouldn't go back or recommend it here. Having said this, the lady serving tried hard and was really nice. Too bad....

Love this clean and friendly little spot in downtown Hamilton. We have tried a few in town but this one is our favourite. Rita is a delight and we enjoy the flavours.

I really enjoyed the roti's here. Great selection of flavours and I thought the staff was very friendly. Not the most picturesque atmosphere, but great Caribbean flavours.

I asked how long an order of Jerk Chicken meal would take, and was told about 10 minutes. In the past it sonetimes takes 15-20 minutes for good Jerk chichen, so I was prepared to wait. About...

I had good curried chick pea and potato roti. Decent spice level, nice filling-to-roti ratio and freshly made. This is far from the best roti I've had, but it's a solid effort and worth a return trip to try the other choices.

We have had take-out from here a few times and really like the flavours. The menu has a good selection of items. Particularly like the many vegetarian options (chickpea potato curry is yummy). The sweet potato pone is good. Everything is home made and excellent quality.

We went to Ya Man! earlier this month. The food was amazing - Jerk Chicken with rice & beans, and, Curried Chicken. I ordered the curried chicken, then my husband ordered the jerk chicken. The person taking the order said the jerk was hot, so I asked - isn't the curry hot? 'No' was the answer but then she said... More
