To hear the story about the grand opening after four months in pretty humbling. It was definitely a trial to get here. Memories as clear as if it took place yesterday. We were preparing for an event. All of the food was prepared and ready to be cooked.

    I see a lot of reviews saying this isn’t authentic Caribbean food , I personally wouldn’t know because I’ve never been to a Caribbean island and tried the food . But what I I’ll say HANDS DOWN the best Carribean food I’ve had … More in the area ! I eat it almost on a weekly basis. I’ve tried other places from the burg all the way up to DC! I promise you it’s one of the best!

The meal was tasty. We loved this spot a lot and we will … More visit this place again. we highly recommend this place.

    The experience from beginning to end was pleasant and my family and I will definitely be back! I called in our order, the food was ready promptly and the food was so flavorful and fresh. We had the oxtails, curry goat, jerk chicken, fried … More plantains and rice & peas. Not only was the food delicious but the customer service was great!

      Great spicy jerk sauce.  Friendly folks but not a Jamaican in the house the night we went.  Would prefer less styrofoam and plastic.
