Coconut shrimp, wings and cocktails during happy hour is great. Outside seating is casual and fun, but you need to be at the bar for happy hour.

The food and service overall were wonderful. Really enjoyed the spices and flavors, nothing bland in our orders. Nice size portions for entrees, small sides. Would dine here again.

I recommend this place for the interesting Caribbean themed food and drinks on offer. There are a few items for vegetarians as well and include tofu based curries and rice. The cocktails are quite nice too. I had the rum punch that is prepared with white rum, mango and passion fruit. For starters we ordered a dip sampler that was... More

Located in an unassuming storefront on a side street in downtown Palo Alto this is a surprisingly good Jamaican restaurant. There is a full bar and outdoor seating on their patio. The patio can be a little cool in the evening, so they have umbrella heaters that they can roll near your table. We ate inside, the windows were open... More

Had been here for team lunch and enjoyed Jerk Chicken which is little overcooked,but taste great with rice. I found taste has impact of Indian Cuisine(Kerala and Konkan cuisine). Ambience is good and service is also fine. One should not miss the fried plantains here.

Excellent food and service. The combos are highly recommended. Make sure you come hungry because portions are large.

The jerk chicken was fabulous (although I with they had a lunch menu with smaller portions) and came out quickly. The waiter never came by for water fill-up or to check on us and was difficult to get and pay the bill. Need to work on service here. Great indoor/outdoor seating. This restaurant could be great, but just good until... More
