I ate here many times over the past couple months. Food is decent most times, however the portions are not.

If you order Ackee & salt fish, you get less than a quarter cup of Ackee for 7$ something. The dish is mostly dumplin', boiled banana and a miniscule piece of Jamaican potato.

After the first time having breakfast there, I ordered double order of Ackee & salt fish, paid for it, left, got home to eat it only to discover that it was just one tinly portion of Ackee & saltifsih in the box. Almost 12$ for pure dumpling and a bare taste of Ackee.

Disappointing to say the least.

I go back the next Sunday an mention the lack of double Ackee in my last paid for meal and the cashier asks me I I want the double Ackee again. I say yes and she goes to charge for it. I explain to her that I did not get the double Ackee last time and that I don't want to pay for it again if I am not gonna get it.

She is totally buffled and tells me that if I want the double Ackee I must mention it to the person that dishes it out. Really ? There is a receipt that they read from so there should be no confusion.

Still somehow I manage to get back my double Ackee from the week before, that I paid for it.

Today I go there for lunch order a piece of kingfish and a fried dumpling. 7$ the older lady who usually dishes out the food gives me a piece of kingfish and 2 half sliced onion with a sliver of a carrot. I ask her to put on some more onion and carrot on it and she says it's extra. I say what ? Usually some onion and carrot come with kingfish. She says no that's extra.

So she can keep her 10/20 cent extra onion and carrot but she just lost a regular customer.

I bought food on friday May 16 in witby on kingston road and it was very unappetizing, unpresentable and tasted like crap. I ordered curried goat and got some huge chunks of goat meat that resembles the size of oxtail. terrible. Large pieces of meat had lots of fatty deposits on it. horibble. !!!!!!

I went there once or twice a week for the better part of 3 months. I found the food to be fresh and satisfying and average priced with their competition. The only problem is they don't have all their food ready to dish out at lunch time.

This is for the location on Jane st. With the drive thru. Ordered jerk chicken, oxtail, chicken roti and 2 coconut waters. Only good thing about this 48 dollar meal was the two coconut waters. Oxtail to salty and rice dry as Hell!, Jerk chicken same thing, rice clumpy dry, just totally suxs! No lie. Chicken Roti, salty as hell, so crappy, whoever be cooking this food in the kitchen is amateur and needs to stop cause they suck. Other than that girl at the drive thru was cool. Message to management, that was my first time ordering their and last. Never again!, you need to check your food before u send it out!!!
