Food quality has gone downhill here! The curry chicken used to be good but they now only use chicken wings in the curry, so it’s a curry of bones and skin, yuck! Also had the fish burger, I would not recommend this either as it...More

In terms of value for money, this little restaurant is top notch. Mostly frequented by locals, offers a decent selection that should suit most people. The baked chicken dinner served up a baked chicken — a lovely respite from fried! — and yummy sides such...More

Local place. You walk in and it is kind of like walking into a bank.. You place order via microphone, and pay under the glass. But the food is good and priced appropriately.

Grits and tuna and the conch burger are my favorites thus far. One of the few places on New Providence that's open late night downtown.

Have been coming here for years! Great local style food (fried or baked chicken, rice n peas... chicken in da bag) - it's where local people go. The coleslaw is great (homemade) and the chicken Caesar salad is surprisingly good.

I love having the Imperial King available for a late night meal. Most of the other places in the area close up early, but these guys are open very late. Chicken in a Bag is always a good bet!

If you want a $5 johnny cake and cheese or corned beef, this is the place for you! Nothing amazing, but it's pretty good.
