We were on a tour of the City, Botanical Gardens and Dunn's River Falls and had about 20 minutes to kill and was hungry so we stopped there for some Jerk wings and a beer. I was pleased with the service we received and the food was good.

Located at the Taj Mahal shopping mall just outside the pier dock. Basically a bar. A set of steps has to be climbed and not wheel chair accessible. There is inside and veranda seating. Alcohol bar available. Local food cooked for tourist taste buds available. Food is basically tasteless and rice looks like Big Ben had been used. 26% tax... More
