Had dinner last night and just loved the whole experience! Food was great especially the popcorn shrimp, the goat curry and roti. Tiny place so make sure you book. BYO is fab! Chef and waitress were just lovely, so friendly and clearly enjoy what they do. Highly recommended.

We had a terrific night here.

Friendly and happy venue, but not that big so you just know there are some processes along the way that probably remove some of the authenticity behind the home cooking.

Don't get me wrong, it's fun ...the main courses are tasty..(the starters felt a bit contrived and preprepared I'm not saying they are out of a brakes brothers menu ...but. ...just didn't match the rest of the food)......it's incredibly good value (largely cos it's unlicensed so you bring your own wine and beer) and I challenge you to not have a good time.

The owner needs a bigger venue and another helper in the kitchen...then I think she could really let you in her creativity and Jamaican cooking skills fly.....

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. Feedback is extremely valuable to help us improve and to consistently meet our customers' expectations. We're thrilled you enjoyed your evening and very much hope you will return soon.

However, we do wish to place on record that we do not use Brakes Brothers, Bidvest or any other commercial catering supplier. Apart from 1 menu item all our food is cooked on site (in the teeny kitchen) with ingredients (and many of our soft drinks) procured from Jamaica via a UK distributor or from a small West Indian supplier in London. Our goat meat is also sourced from London.

Oxford English Dictionary definition: "Authentic - made or done in the traditional or original way or in a way that faithfully resembles an original" Authentic - we most certainly are!

You can tell the chef is really enthusiastic about her food- it tasted great. We tried the mixed platter main to try what was on offer and absolutely loved the goat curry- don't know it until you've tried it!
The food was more than enough for two and we took some home for later.
The atmosphere was chilled and enjoyable, only a handful of tables.
Service was friendly and quick.
Enjoyed having a 'Ting' drink and a shot with our bill!

Passed this on the way back from the theatre and was determined to eat there during my weekend in Worthing. It's a very small , the kitchen and dining area are 1, tables 5 or 6 maximum, Caribbean delight. The venue is as appealing as the menu. The proprietors are delightful. I recommend you book as we were nearly turned away due to its popularity. We were lucky we were 2 and they bent over backwards to accommodate us. It's BYO (off licence near) with a £1 corkage. We didn't bother and drank the soft drinks on offer. Grape soda, pineapple soda and pineapple and coconut. The jerk chicken with rice and bean was wonderful. It really is not to be missed.
Thank you to both.

This is just to close to where we live making it impossible to not keep going back, food is nothing short of simply superb, huge portions of high class quality products, it just never disappoints, took 4 friends last night who were all just blown away with everything stating when can we come again. Ensure you book the place is small and always busy? it's a must must try.
