Food all excellently sourced and prepared. A bit pricey but definitely worth it (portion size was generous enough) and the hot sauce was hotter than expected but didn't ruin the food so it was good on the whole.

Really fresh delicious food on this stall on the Cambridge market. Homemade mayonnaise, chilli sauce, and fantastic tasty curries. They have become entirely vegan and the food is as great as ever. Local ingredients. Ethical. Highly recommended.

The food is tasty, home cooked and using great responsible sourced ingredients. I had the chicken for lunch and then bought takeaways for supper too! The hot sauce is EVERYTHING!

Our speciality is organic and locally grown food with a Caribbean twist! Delicious curries served in either hand made Roti (a type of flat bread popular in Trinidad) or with Rice and peas (red beans). Fillings include curried mutton, curried chicken, sautéed chicken, and various vegan dishes. We also make home made seasonings and relishes, and are famous for our home made scotch bonnet pepper sauce.
