I have to admit I'm not sure I'd know good Jamaican food from bad. But this spot always keeps me coming back for more. Jerks and curried dishes. Served on rice and beans, or rolled into a roti. And the music playing in the background makes you dream of far-off beaches.

A small storefront masks comfort food from the Islands. I had the 1/4 chicken and plantains. Service was fast and friendly. Chicken was a bit on the small portion size but perfectly cooked and spiced with Jerk seasoning. The plantains were soft and comforting -- a perfect foil for the Sorel soda. Wonderful light dinner.

We bought a Groupon for lunch for four, and stopped in to redeem it one afternoon (way past lunch hours). The young lady behind the bar was extraordinarily nice and friendly and said she would put it together right away (we took a quick stroll around Bank Street). When we came back, everything was packaged up and smelling great. We... More

Went to "ticktock escape" Saturday night only to find that almost all the near by restaurants were closed.. Caribbean Sizzler was two doors down and open so gave it a try. They were already out of many of the food options (It was late in the day and a long weekend) but the staff was very friendly and helpful in... More

This is a small Caribbean restaurant, very clean but rather dark. Prices are cheap but,still, they could have done better with the food. Chicken was overcooked( black) plus terrible rice and beans( cold and tasteless). The waitress was friendly but not attentive after I sat with my order( previously paid over the counter). It looks like the majority of their... More

I have been there on numerous occasions and for some reason they always seem to run out of food at lunch time. ( which is probably one of their most busy time) you would think they would plan accordingly? It's too bad, because the food is okay and staff are very polite and courteous. Today I ordered jerk chicken and... More

I've really been missing roti since moving away from Toronto, but I think I've found my next best option. I ordered the goat which was good with the right amount of spice. Next time I'll try the chicken which was my go to roti in the past. I also ordered the macaroni pie which was yummy, but then I'm a... More

Whether you already love Caribbean food or have never tried it, this place is great for you. It's a pretty short menu of jerk options (chicken, pork and goat) as well as a few other items, but I think it allows them to focus on what they do best. I tried both the jerk chicken plate AND the jerk chicken... More

I work downtown and I frequent this spot regularly. The staff is friendly and the food is excellent. My favorite is the jerk chicken roit! Its spicy, but not too spicy!
