Quiet comfortable out of the way place with delicious Asian inspired food. Worth the trip. Went at the suggestion of friends and was not disappointed. Live music that night made the evening extra special.

We really enjoyed Hibuscus for family bday celebration with older kids. The Carribean food was unique and great, and staff very nice. Favorites were Ox Tails (!!) and Salmon (forgot the name but had sauce and carmelized onions) and Jerk Shrimp salad - all excellent. Jerk Chicken is good but a little hard to eat off bone. Rum bread pudding... More

We didn't know what to expect in the basement of the Best Western Inn; but we had driven enough for the day and decided to try the Caribbean experience in the hotel. Excellent food. Excellent staff. Our server from Jamaica helped us pick things that would be interesting and give an experience of the Caribbean in New Jersey. The Shrimp... More

Tucked away in a Best Western, down a set of stairs, i felt as if i was ready for an experience of at least my immediate lifetime. The smell of food filled the air as i reached the bottom of the steps. Music filled our ears as we came closer and the waitress greeted us as the doors opened. A... More

I wouldn't say the decor is 5 star ( basement of the Best Western Hotel) but the food is GREAT!! It's a casual atmosphere with wonderful live entertainment and the friendliest staff I've ever experienced. The coconut shrimp and the scallop appetizers are amazing and every entree in our party of 8 was delicious. Plus it's a BYOB...so very reasonable.... More

Based on reviews I had high expectations for lunch here, but the buffet didn't meet them. As noted by others, the location in a hotel basement is a little unusual, but it's easy to find and the people who work here are nice. Unfortunately the food left a lot to be desired. The chicken dishes were good, but the 'salmon'... More
