This is a very fun place to visit for cocktails or dinner. Lots of variety in terms of Caribbean food and everything I have had there is very good. I love the chicken curry, black beans and smashed yams.

i found the food to be very tasty, lots of choices and the seating is just a little tight if you sit at a table, they have split the bar from the dinning area which is good.

The rich flavors of jerk chicken and goat curry were more than i could have ever wanted. I feel like every single item was better than the next, full of unique satisfying flavors. Perfect level for someone who loves spicy. My new favorite.

I had the chicken and waffles and it was excellent! My girlfriend said the grits were not the best she has ever had though. Under seasoned and a somewhat small portion. Otherwise it is an awesome place to eat in South Seattle. Worth going out...More
