Went at 7:0 pm on a Saturday night. Worried at first that it wasn't busy, but was put at ease by a friendly server who hooked me up with a ginger rum drink. I didn't think much of the drink at first, but when paired with the complimentary corn fritters (called something else) and habanero mango sauce, they went together fabulously. I ordered the jerk pork with rice and coleslaw which was very good, especially the jerk gravy sauce. Good atmosphere. Good times.

Although the music was good after a while it just became noise as it was so loud even though we were sitting outside on the patio. Food was good and well priced. Service was okay. Overall a pleasant experience.

Fun, yummy, tasty food with best hot sauce ever - made specially for this restaurant. Laid-back atmosphere where you can enjoy walk by street life as you eat though open windows or on patio. Staff great - food interesting and prices good. Large groups or just for two - this is a neat place on "the drive" in Vancouver!

Stopped by here for lunch on a sunny, hot July day. Between tow of us, we ordered the beef path, Tobago wrap and the jerk chicken poutine. The patty was sizzling hot and generous with the filling, the wrap had a really balanced and the jerk chicken poutine was nicely seasoned with a nice after burn and was not too salty. Washed this down with very spicy finer beer that went well with the food.

A tough place to beat on a hot day and maybe just what you need to perk up your day when it’s raining. I’ll be back!
