The best Jamaican patties I have ever had. also his curry dishes are great too. he goes as far as to get his spices sent to him by family members in Jamaica. A don't miss for sure! they have moved to the corner of Oliver and Memorial.

Come in and Tell Ted it is your first time and get ready for a sampler plate like no other. His entire menu is delicious and filling. Ted always has something to talk about and treats his customers quite well. Check this place out TBAY!

I can't believe there is only 24 reviews for this place. Ted is an amazingly friendly guy who poors his heart and soul into his cooking. If you haven't been here come in and let him know it's your first time. Get ready to be pleasantly full and enjoy the commentary of a no nonsense business owner that cares about... More

Great food! Very good flavours and vibe. Huge portions! The jerk is not the type full of thyme & scallion aromas, but it is delicious. Ted is a super guy. Love this place!

We decided to try after hearing good things. Ted is a cool cat. Super friendly and passionate. He gave us a generous sample of Curry chicken, Brown Stew Chicken, Jerk Chicken and Honey Garlic ribs. I was stunned (still dwelling) by the depth of flavours, tenderness and overall quality. I can't pick a favourite at this point, everything was equally... More

I recently just went to Ted's kitchen and it was so delicious. As I had never tried it before, the man who took my order was more than happy to explain and ultimately pick something new to try. It was Awesome

I was recently in Thunder Bay on business and checked Trip Advisor to find a place to eat. I found Ted's and decided to have some jerk food. The restaurant is small, clean and tidy, nothing fancy. Ted is very friendly and great to deal with. I had the large order that included both jerk pork and chicken along with... More

I have had authentic Jamaican before, home made by my friend's Jamaican mother. Ted's makes fantastic jerk pork, best I've ever had. The flavours are deep and complex with a good smouldering heat that doesn't over power the flavour. The peas and rice are cooked perfectly and counters the pork really well. Grab a Kola Champaign to have with your... More

Stopped here tonight at the new location (right across & beside the Shoppers Drug Mart) wow! The food was amazing!!! Had the jerk chicken and jerk pork and we would have taken some patties to go but he was out because he makes them from scratch! This place is a gem & I would move to Thunder Bay just for... More
