I tried the jerk lamb and was taken aback by the generous portion. The decor is plain but the background music makes up for it to create a relaxing and pleasant experience.

Second time eating here now, and the first was a pleasant experience but the second time will definitely be my last time!. Guy serving had no customer service skills. Please and thank you did not exist in his vocabulary!. Did not ask once if we were enjoying the food, at the end of the meal just flung some expanding clothes... More

Visited this lovely restaurant so many times over the years when in the area. This time it was terrible. Heated up yesterday's food. Plantain like bullets,jerk chicken cold and slimy, rice in solid clumps and salad wilted. Waited over 45 mins. We asked whether it was possible to be served soon as we had to get back to work in...

Visited this place on the recommendation from a friend who knows her West Indian food. Laid back place with very friendly staff. All the food was legit. Ordered all my favs - jerk chicken, rice & peas, plantain, festival, boiled dumpling. All the jerk chicken was perfectly delicious, it wasn't the kind I prefer where it is barbecued in drum.

Went here for dinner with friends. The Jerk chicken, rice and peas and plantain were lovely (and only £10). Cool music and friendly staff. Good for a casual dinner.

We passed this restaurant on the way to Khamsa and it looked pretty intriguing. Let's just say we'd booked a table at Khamsa but didn't end up going and ended up here-what a brilliant decision. Firstly the person who attended to us gave us a reserved table (though we hadn't booked), which was very nice of him. The staff were... More
