Went with a few friends and were looking forwards to a Caribbean feast!

Was a little disappointed to find they only serve curry goat on a Saturday, that's more of a business model thing I guess as I can see why it would be great to cook up a big batch but other Caribbean restaurants manage to serve it daily.

We shared some wings and some fish cakes to start. Wings were average but the fish cakes were amazing. I have to say the price of the starters is a little steep. £8 for 7 wings and £6 for 3 fish cakes is a little expensive.

As for mains, we had the Jerk Chicken, The fried chicken and the Lamb Curry Roti.
Me and my friend shared the fried chicken and Roti. Disappointingly the fried chicken coating was pretty bland and the flesh was actually very dry. I ended up leaving half of the piece I had.

Moving onto the Lamb Roti. It was AMAZING. Exactly what you wanted, the meat was tender and plentiful, the curry was rich and warm without burning your head off.
So I would advise to go to bus stop, but be careful over what you pick as all things are not equal here in my opinion.

Must haves
The Fish Cakes
The Lamb Roti
The Macoroni Pie.

I'd not order again
The wings
The fried chicken.

Very much a mixed bag and a little on the expensive side.

Spent a lovely evening here last week. The atmosphere is fun and the staff are all very friendly. I ha the pork chop which was lovely - and a very full plate. My husband had the cajun style seabream and said it was delicious. the premises are small, but I think that's a good thing. All in all a very enjoyable evening

I was really looking forward to eating here but the food was a let down. My Curried goat was ok but luke warm. Not luke warm enough to send it back but luke warm enough to detract from enjoying it. My partners jerk chicken looked bland and tasted bland although it was fairly ok when dipped in the sauce. The sides were decent enough. It wasn't that it was a bad meal, it just wasn't a particularly good meal either. Forgettable, which is a shame as it's a cosy enough place with friendly service. We had beers, the wine seemed a bit steep at £18 a bottle. It was busy at 6.30 pm on a Saturday but it's hard to see that anyone would be rushing to eat there a second time.

If you visit Brighton you must go to Bus Stop. It is incredible. Great food - proper portions of amazing hearty Caribbean grub. The macaroni pie is unreal and I can really recommend the pork chop and fried chicken. The cocktails are lush and the music and general vibe is too cool. Thank you Dominique and the team. See you soon!
