True, authentic Jamaican food If you never had it, you need to get on up and get over there fast The best Jamaican food I've ever had hands down! The service is outstanding to be a take out spot My personal best is the jerk chicken 10 stars for me!

Let me say this first. The food was very good. The groupon experience was not. I had purchased a $20 groupon for $12. It was given as four $5 groupons. When I ordered the food, I was told I could only use one $5 per visit. That is VERY misleading. Now I need to go back three more times. Not cool.

The food here is great authentic caribbean style food. My husband's family is caribbean and he LOVES the food here. I did encounter some issues, though. The groupon is only good on "entrees" It does not state this ANYWHERE on the groupon. They did let me use it but made a big deal about using it on the Roti (under sandwiches) even though I ordered 2 and only used one groupon. Seems like a lot of hassle for really only $2 off of a $15 order. They also have a "for sale" sign out front so, sadly, I dont think they will be in business much longer at least at this location...

I expected to have a place to sit down and eat. I didn't read it close enough. Also the portions were very small as compared to other Jamaican food places. The one dish I ordered in particular was the curry shrimp . I looked like can shrimp with curry added to it. They served very small portions of the cabbabe. Very disappointed.

I'm from Barbados, the food is 100% Jamaican and tastes irie. Don't let the outside appearance fool you. This carry-out spot serves food that tastes as good as food coming from a fine "sit-down" restaurant. Wayne serves it up with a lot of love!!

Much of the menu was not available because "the cook was gone". My phone order was ignored and when I went to pick up the order I had to start all over. Told it would be ready in 5 minutes I waited more than 15. Never again
