prices for "2-course" meals too high, took too long for food to arrive - almost an hour for the main course..

The location and atmosphere did not match the quality and price if the food. The location is not great, but the food is high quality and has great presentation. You usually would not dine in a location like that for $25/person dinners, but it was worth it and I will definitely return again!

I will never eat at this restaurant again. My server and I got into an argument over a mistake that he made on my order and he refused to fix it. He began to complain to me about how they make no money on groupons so if I wanted him to fix my order it would be an up charge. I refused to pay for there mistake and the argument escalated into me walking out of the restaurant. What a waste of money for this groupon deal.

Restaurants like to say "cooked to order, expect a wait" as if this makes it okay to be inefficient, like you're getting super fresh food. As if you don't in other, more efficient restaurants. This place has two guys, one apparently cooking all the food, one dish at a time... and another who takes orders very poorly, doesn't seem to be literate, as he seemed to be trying to write our order down but kept squinting at his pad, asking us again and again what we'd ordered, couldn't be asked any questions that might interrupt him, etc. He kept coming back to the table to clarify - probably 3 times! When our meals started coming out the last person still sat for 10 minutes with no food.

The service has greatly improved from the first time I went back in November 2012 and the food was good! I will definitely come again! The only thing I might suggest is to warn customers about the bones in some chicken dishes.

Only good for takeout, because the food is decent. However, the dining area is cramped and un-inviting, the attitudes of the chef and/or owner are HORRIBLE, arrogant and not customer friendly. Check out other dining sites, they have many bad reviews. FAIL. I will never return and do not recommend.

This place is horrible. I had s $30 groupon but he dis not want me to order what I wanted. Your.Groupon is for dine in only, but dine in menu is more expensive then take out menu. Since I came alone he knew that I was only go to order enough to cover groupon qhich he sid not like. While I was eating a customer came back to let thwm know his food was not right and the wirkers proceeded to yell and scream at the customer using profanity. This place is horrible

perhaps the serving size of the entree & sides accompanying it could be somewhat larger

From Our Editors

A former executive chef of Caribbean resorts, Chef Orlando brings an array of eastern Jamaican cuisine to his eponymous Columbus eatery. In addition to island staples such as jerk chicken and pork, the chef adds a dash of Chinese influence to dishes such as sweet ‘n’ sour chicken, fried rice, and pizzas with a fortune hidden inside. Ginger beer and rum cake round out each meal, which is served on vivid purple and coral platters in a lime-green-walled dining room.
