This is a hole in the wall restaurant with great Caribbean Food. The jerk chicken was flavorful, but not too spicy. The rice and salad sides were good. The portion was large and the service friendly. $10 and change for a great meal with leftovers is good with me anytime.

I have been craving Irish Moss for some time now. There doesn't seem to be anywhere close to me to get some so I took advantage of being on the south side for work. I also grabbed a couple meat pies. They were delicious and it was a great combo. Previously I have enjoyed their goat curry.

Stooped here on the way in to Sarasota on a Sunday afternoon. It was busy for a Sunday and we soon found out why...the food was amazing! Good variety and pricing. The homemade sorrel was excellent! Would certainly recommend this place!

Food was ok but the atmosphere was very dry no smiles and they seemed to be getting impatient with me while I decided what I wanted to eat. The food was good it had flavor, I had a goat Roti it was nothing to write home about probably a 7 out of 10.

Great home cooked Jamaican food. Tried the curried goat, ox tails, fried salt fish fritters, jerk chicken. All fresh and yummy. Don't expect anything for the decor. Quick friendly service.
