I placed an order for delivery. The food arrived within the estimated time frame they quoted (one hour to one hour and a half). The curry goat lunch special was absolutely delicious. The flavor of the food was pleasantly aromatic. It was spicy, but I didn't find it painful to eat. In other words, it had just the right amount of "kick" to it - but not enough to knock you down. Some people might enjoy it, but I didn't care much for the ox tails at all. (Maybe they should offer them curried)? I couldn't eat the rum cake nor the bread pudding at all. I do love the ginger beer! I've been searching for the Old Jamaican Ginger Beer for several years and finally found it! The up-side is that they give you plentiful portions for a somewhat reasonable price if you order the lunch special. It's enough food for two people, or one person who's really hungry.

Everything was great! The delivery man was nice, the food arrived a little before the estimated delivery time and everything in my order was DELICIOUS! Even the extra sauce I ordered was in the bag, too. It was a busy day for the restaurant so I was especially grateful that they took care with my order! The chicken was tender and the jerk seasoning was spicy, just like I love it. I even have to say that their prices are pretty cool too.
I will definitely be ordering again... and again.

The food is fantastic and full of flavor my only complaint is the delivery guy. He came to my door reeking of booze and he gave my food to someone else in my building my neighbor could have kept my food if she wanted to. This guy didn't even ask her who she was he just handed her the food and left. Y'all need to start checking y'all delivery guys.

This is the 3rd time i ordered from this place, the food was incredibly delicious! One thing i hate is every time the delivery guys came they will asked for tip like okay calm down some times i may not have enough for tip but why asking? I'm a good tipper! But they must understand that i may not have enough just enough for my food. Thank you!

I only have one word to describe this restaurant's white jerk, beans and rice, cabbage, delivery time, and customer service: EXCEPTIONAL. I've eaten authentic jerk chicken in Jamaica that wasn't as well prepared and scrumptious as this. I also ordered the rum cake, but I wasn't too fond of it. I will definitely be ordering from here again.

Jerk is a style of cooking native to Jamaica in which meats are dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a very hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. Jerk seasoning is traditionally applied to pork and chicken. Modern recipes also apply jerk spice mixes to fish, shrimp, shellfish, beef, sausage, and tofu. Jerk seasoning principally relies upon two items: allspice (called "pimento" in Jamaica) and Scotch bonnet peppers (among the hottest peppers on the Scoville scale). Other ingredients include cloves, cinnamon, scallions, nutmeg, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper. Jerk chicken, pork, or fish originally was smoked over aromatic wood charcoal. Most jerk in Jamaica is no longer cooked in the traditional method and is grilled over hardwood charcoal in a steel drum jerk pan. The wood ("pimento wood"), berries, and leaves of the allspice plant among the coals contribute to jerk's distinctive flavor. --Wikipedia
