Jamaican fried chicken, Thursdays special I'd always the best. Never fails to impress. Sauce is a sweet pineapple flavor.

Food is a little pricey for lunch but very delicious. Nice open kitchen, friendly and personable service by none other than Ms. Maxine herself. I had the special of the day - rosemary lamb curry, very tasty, washed down with a red stripe. The closest...More

The ambiance of the place is very welcoming. A small restaurant, probably mainly setup for takeout, but there are tables as well for on the spot eating. The kitchen and the whole place is spotlessly clean. The food is awesome. I have tried the beef...More

I’m not one for spicy foods. Not one for going to the towers area. Food wasn’t bad. Kind of shady area always has been to me. But not bad at all try it. At least try it.

We’ve been in this restaurant few times. The restaurant is very small but decorated nicely which makes you feel good. Foods are fresh and mostly tasty. It’s spicy though.

Our original concept was to provide customers with a quick and easy way to eat healthy and stay fit with our chef to go meals. But with so little options for ethnic food in our small city, we chose to give Fort Mcmurray something unique and unforgettable. We offer Authentic Jamaican Cuisine while dining to nostalgic reggae music - eat-in, take-out, or delivery. We cater to large and small groups. Come feel the vibes. One Love!
