We loved getting food to go from here. The food is delicious and not expensive. We love the Jamaican beef patties, the jerk chicken, the shrimp curry and oxtail. If you like patties you need to go early because they sell out pretty fast. The food is always good here which is why we keep going back

Excellent home cooked Jamaican food! I only wish breakfast was available daily because it's delicious! I would love to see more vegetable dishes added to the menu. Overall, the excellent food (I recommend the oxtail, curry goat and jerk pork to name a few) compensated for the service which could use a lesson or two in customer service etiquette.

Located in a small dark strip mall on Memorial drive. Very ethnic and thus authentic Jamaican cooking. Spicing is amazing. Unusual food for us but home cooking for the Caribbean clientele. Lots of takeout because there is virtually no seating. For Saturday breakfast only they make ackee and salt fish, the national dish of Jamaica. Really excellent. We also had callaloo which was great and not too hot even though it did have some habanero in it. For normal nights we like red snapper brown stew, oxtail or the goat roti, a well seasoned dish served with fresh homemade soft flat bread for soaking up the sauce. Most dishes come with peas and rice and plantains and/or cabbage. Very sturdy and filling. We're going to try everything on the menu. It's going to take some courage to order the Thursday lunch special "cow foot" $6.25 The atmosphere is "hole in the wall" style so takeout is recommended and give them plenty of time to prepare it. Price-wise, it's a bargain for the food value. Try it and you'll be back.
