This is the only hut we go to for Bake and Shark. It’s always hot and we have never had a bad one. The dressings are amazing, the salad is always fresh and doesn’t look stale. All the best to this establishment!

Hi, yes they do. There is a shortage of American money in Trinidad so everywhere will accept it.
