I absolutely love this restaurant! It's the most authentic restaurant there is actually a "Mama". The food is great and juicy. The staff could do better but Patricia is a great waitress!

Food I guess is pretty warm in temperature, never really hot. Always out of lots of things on the menu. Caribbean Hut in the university area has much better food. My last meal of pepper steak was pretty tough.

This place was a good modest place for a Beef patty and some Jerk Chicken. It is a very small home town type feeling when you visit. The best part of this place as well were the staff, they were very nice.
