However, I called to inform them about the stomach turning noticeable fat but they wouldn't let me get a word in.

A good friend of my mine was hyping up this place for their curry goat. Last week I went to see what it was all about, but they were having work done on their vent hoods. I found it odd there was no sign up or that nobody working in there came out and say "Sorry no food today." Since... More

I heard good things about this place, I'm a Caucasian and think this may of had something todo with my order. I arrived at 12:15pm during lunch and ordered a large Jerk Chicken dinner. The rice and peas were fresh as well as the vegetables. Here's the problem, the chicken was cold, dried out and definitely not cooked today. There's... More

Best Jamaican food i've ever had outside of my boyfriends family's house (who are Jamaican). Great value for what you are getting. So good we crossed town twice in our last trip to Toronto to eat at this restaurant.
