The 'drunken ribs' are amazing. The meat just falls off the bone and the taste is great. It might be a bit expensive for ribs, but it is definitely worth it. The ribs come with two side dishes of choice. Great service with a smile...More

We had a great dinner at The Palms! Husband had whole red snapper, daughter had wings and I scored with the jerk beef wrap - awesome! Was nice to spend time with a few fellow Canadians as well for good measure! Good meal, good value!

Have been waiting all year for the shrimp curry with roti. Friends had spicy lasagna and cheeseburger both delicious. Great apps too especially spring rolls and pao. One restaurant we return to several times on our vacation. Give it a try won't disappoint.
