Dougie himself served me and gave me a lovely drink and a few extras on the house, I ordered oxtail with rice and plantain, and dumplings with steam vegetables... More

First time I have tried Caribbean food. Tried the goat curry. It was nice and spicy, plenty of it. Service was quick and easy. Well worth a trip out to.

I used to eat jerk chicken and rice n peas on the beach in jamaica and dougy's jerk takes me right back there. Got some for lunch this week. It was fantastic. Everybody else in in the office loved their carribean food from Dougy's too.

Only place I get my Caribbean food from in Manchester. The staff are friendly and the food is tasty. Has a little outside eating area and also open seven days a week. It is very rare that you can get Jamaican cooked food in Sunday

Even with very high expectations (No. 3 in Manchester), I was still amazed by the warmth of service, fantastic quality and quantity of food, and the great community feeling! Dougy really took care of his customers and you can taste the passion and pride in the home-cooked food. It's not the usual greasing over sugared and over flavoured fast food!... More
