A favorite on Trini visits. Food's tasty, local creole; good selection. Self serve buffet, hot and salad bar, gloves provided. Delicious, very close to homemade, Mom's cooking. Yummy macaroni pie, stewed chicken, green fig salad and more. ♡

I went to this buffet and was happy to see that it offered Pastelless ( a trini dish) all year around. The sanitation is monitored and the food is yummy. You definitely need to go here to experience a Trinidad style buffet. Worth the drive...More

Serve yourself, plenty of choice, pay by the weight. Usually a queue but moves fast. You're sure to find something you fancy, vegetarian options.

A self service, purchase by weight quick serve restaurant which as built a quick reputation for value, consistency and great food. The concept is simple while options are wide enough to stop for lunch daily without having the same meal twice all week. Great spot.

A great way to sample a little of all the local food. It's a buffet, and usually has a great selection. But unlike other local places, it's not intimidating for a foreigner to go there.

If you're searching for Caribbean/Trini/Creole cuisine look no further. Slip on a glove, pick up the tongs and you're off loading up your plate and any of the dozens of dishes laid out for you to select the platter of your heart's desire! Callallo, corn...More
