We came for an evening meal to celebrate a birthday and we were very happy with the friendly, welcoming, informal atmosphere. The food was great and really good value plus the location adds a touch of quirkiness to the place. Recommend!

After deciding to visit the quarter and seeing the reviews for 24carat we couldn't resist a visit and were not disappointed. We were warmly greeted by the presumed owner and made very comfortable. We chose the Caribbean platter for my little one, a prawn dish...More

My boyfriend loves Caribbean food and we always seem to end up at Turtle Bay, however after finding this restaurant on TripAdvisor we thought we'd give it a shot. I'm really glad we did. Firstly, there's no airs and graces here. It's small, quirky and...More

What a fantastic little restaurant in the heart of the jewellery quarter. Tucked away from the main street, it is most definitely a 'hidden gem'. All of the foid we ordered was delicious, and the customer service was great too with friendly and attentive staff....More

Small, cozy, homey cafe run by a wonderful Jamaica family, that cook themselves just in front of you in a tiny adjacent kitchen! We tried mouth-watering lamb steak, beef burger, ox tail, creative deserts. All accompanied by sincere smiles. We would recommend it to everyone

We are not the same people who owned big nannys . We are situated in the building opposite where they used to be . But we are totally different to them.

GOOD HOME COOKED FOOD AT A REASONABLE PRICE. We are a small FAMILY RUN business in the heart of the Jewelry Quarter, reached by walking down a quaint tiled walkway (at the side of Paul Green's Jewelers). Once inside you will discover a hidden part of the Jewelry Quarter's history.
