Of course it would happen that the first time I go try this place they run out of Coco Bread. I was in the mood for a beef patty (a rare find in California) and need the Coco Bread to mediate the heat from the meat. I didn't get a chance to try the food but was pleased they had... More

My husband and I visited this place and it was OK. I ordered the ox tail which were tough, dry and flavor-less. I like a lot of gravy to mix with my rice, which there was not a lot of. My husband got the stewed chicken which was really good. It was full of flavor, the meat was tender. I... More

We had a little bit of everything on the menu and LOVED IT ALL! The greens, the rice and beans, the curry chicken, the jerk and even the oxtail were all DELICIOUS!! I can't wait to go back for seconds or even thirds.

Generous servings of what you order; the curry goat, plantains and rice & peas was well cooked. The staff was very courteous and efficient.

I was the contact person for a party that Derrick was supposed to cater. There was no food prepared for us at all!!! We didn't find out until 4 hours before the event was supposed to happen. There were warning signs, I admit that now, but it was too late to change caterers. First! Derrick sent a bill to us... More

We ate at Derrick’s in early August while vacationing in LA. We were recommended to go by a friend who frequents the restaurant and we were not disappointed. We visited the restaurant on La Tijera Blvd during a late afternoon and the place was quiet. The food was delicious and our kids loved the fish sticks (not your ordinary fish... More

My sister in law who lives in LA took us the Derrick's to offer something more authentic than the usual restaurants. The staff was friendly and the food was good.

Visited on a Sunday evening. Service was extremely slow...I'm talking extreeeeeeeeemly slow. We had seated ourselves, but moved closer to front thinking maybe they just didn't see us. Finally came and took appetizer and drink order. And again the waiting begins. Finally the server brings our drinks and takes our food order. Unfortunately, they were out of several menu items,...

I have been to Derrick's twice now and the food is not what i consider good Jamaican food, the food is just ok but a long way from what I know as being good Jamaican Food. The service is good and the drinks are good, but the food is lacking in the authentic taste. The only reason i returned for... More

Good spot for some good island food. They prices are reasonable. Great place to just grab a jamaican patty and kola. I am biased on this one. I would definitely go back there when I go to LA.
