I eat here for the first time a month ago and I've been back every week since! The curry mutton is delicious!

We ordered takeout from here and were pleasantly surprised. My fiance called and spoke to Lorna who was very accommodating with the menu. Certain items we ordered were finished for the day but she made a fresh batch of soursup punch for me. We ordered several items so we could try them out; saltfish and akee, oxtail and rice and...

As one who had never tried Caribbean food prior to having Dougie's, I was unsure as to what to expect. The chicken and rice was great and the service was very warm and welcoming. Prices are good, with a main being around £5. This restaurant has many customers, even for lunch, and it's easy to see why.

Big thanks to Dougy's for laying on a feast for Manchester Magic U14 quarter finals. The boys thoroughly enjoyed their goat, chicken and steak.

Had a proper feast from the Chorlton branch of Dougie's on Saturday night. Jerk chicken, minted chops, fried chicken and jerk chops all fantastic. Really recommend the rum cake too.

Having enjoyed many tremendous meals from the (sadly closed) Dougies outlet on Moss Lane West, I popped down last Sunday for my first meal from the new Chorlton branch. As I was arriving I saw Dougie locking up (he's not yet open on a Sunday) seeing my disappointment he rang ahead to their other Moss Side branch and insisted they... More

Just have to commend the chef, Jackie. Your curry chicken served with potatoes was awesome. I bought it for the children. But you know when you smell food and it smells so good you just have to eat some. I was not allowed to even nibble at THEIR chicken but I drizzled some of the gravy on rice and it... More

I found this place on TripAdvisor at first I thought the reviews are too good to be true but blinded the food was really good and the guys looked after me. Dougie himself served me and gave me a lovely drink and a few extras on the house, I ordered oxtail with rice and plantain, and dumplings with steam vegetables... More

First time I have tried Caribbean food. Tried the goat curry. It was nice and spicy, plenty of it. Service was quick and easy. Well worth a trip out to.
