I think that groupon should be more specific about the description of the place. I assumed it was a dining in place with waitress's. it was more like for take out.

the rice spoiled after only a couple of hours, which I feel it must have been starting to spoil when I bought it at 9:30pm.

The service was okay, however it took almost an hour to receive my food. They didn't have much of what i wanted. The food was made to order however this place isn't necessarily dine-in friendly so the long wait was tough to endure. They got my order wrong but I didn't notice it until I reached home and because of the long wait, I wasn't going to make a big deal about it and go back. The food was mediocre. I think the best thing to do is order your food via phone way in advance but you wouldn't know what they serve because their website doesn't provide that information. I don't think I'll be going back.

The curry was a bit weak. Kudos on the peas and rice.

From Our Editors

Downs District: Jamaican Jerk Grill, named for the area of Jamaica from which the owner's family emigrated, fills the space formerly inhabited by Perci's Jerk Hut with the savory aromas of tropical cuisine. Cooks stew oxtail, roast fish over tinfoil, and prepare jerk chicken that a New York Magazine writer called "succulent with a slightly crispy exterior.” Bright-red chairs, natural-wood accents, and modern, whimsical illustrations of goats and fish lend the restaurant a cheerful vibe.
