Simple menu, big plates, very good food. Oxtail stew is a must, goat curry is savory too. Didn’t try chicken, but beef stew looks good

Although I only did a take-out, the place is very cute, but a bit off the beaten path. It's worth the short trip off the main strip in Long Branch. Being the only Jamaican restaurant around, it's refreshing to get some great Jamaican food locally....More

I found this restaurant to be overpriced and the food was OK. There's a Jamaican restaurant in Asbury park I frequent where a small oxtail is $11.35 and in Longbranch the small ox tail is $15. Just an example. Everything here is way more money...More
