Restaurant owned by husband Joe and wife Yo-Yo who puts a lot of passion in the food and it's delicious. Restaurant gives you a island feeling when you walk in. Best rice and peas I ever had

Growing up in NYC and my best friend's family is West Indian (especially off a recent trip to Jamaica), I always appreciate great Caribbean food. The food here was okay at best.

If you want some great tasting Jamaican food, this is your place. Portion sizes are great for the prize. Good selection of entries and veggies.

I liked the Curry Chicken. Oxtails, Brown stewed chicken, beef patties and all the vegetables. I just wished that the building was a little larger.

The day I visited they were out of several items, digging for meat in a sea of sauce and lines were backed up waiting for fresh food. The food here can be awesome but make sure you get there early, otherwise you may be disappointed. Prices are on the high side but warranted when they are at their peak performance.... More
