I am not sure but I think this is the only Jamaican Cuisine in the area. If you like Jamaican food you will be pleasantly satisfied but by no means overly impressed with the offering served up here.

To say the food was boring would be an overstatement. To say it was boring ,an understatement. To ask- what is it would be in order. No spice, no energy - nothing to make it memorable except how bad it was
