It's good. I'd go back. But I'd only go back when I'm craving Jamaican. The food was good but the cramped space made it annoying. The uncomfortableness of waiting was barely outweighed by the food. Plantains were decent at best.

Tried to overcharge us. Fried plantains were soggy and not cooked well. The dumplings were hard and tasteless and the fries tasted like fish. Will NOT be going back or suggesting this place to anyone.

Nothing special to look at, simple clean eat-in or take out. Food is SUPER. Great jerk chicken and curried goat.

We go to this restaurant when it is winter. The jerk anything is great, it is spicy but not the 'stupid' spicy most bars will serve (tabasco sauce), it is a mixture of spices which burns in a subtil and complex way which develops slowly...More
