Dang, this place is good. I couldn't find my original restaurant, but k we this one go decent reviews. When I saw all the cars out front, I decided to risk it. Don't let the area scare you away. The place is a true hole in the wall. Take out or dine in and you seat yourself. I had the... More

Looks like a hole in the wall, but service and food were excellent. Spicy Jerk Chicken✔✔ Vegetable Samosa ✔ Vegetable Roti✔ and Collard Greens✔✔❗ Definitely recommend for authentic Caribbean food. Service was fabulous and friendly, but food like this is not fast so enjoy. Four stars only as our plantains never made it to the table😐 and Yams had too... More

In our group we had native Jamaicans, Trinidadians, and Dominicans. Although the beef patties weren't on the list, they do sell them for $2. The saltfish and ackee with dumplings, little bananas, and yam were AMAZING! The sweet plantains were cooked perfectly throughout, and jerk chicken was deliciously extra spicy. Seems like the chicken was seasoned, cooked, and then had... More

This is our second favorite restaurant in or close to the 285 loop. Just an amazing place to eat. The jerk chicken with black beans and yellow rice, tropical shrimp fettuccine, and oxtail are superb and worth the drive. The place is not in the greatest area but there are always friendly people there with tons of airport workers and... More

Always a wait but worth it. Not my favorite spot for dine in but great food every time so the lines can get long. They will make it as spicy as you want. Today I'm having the small jerk chicken, bone in extra spicy, cabbage and yellow rice. Yummy!

It seems that relatively few customers dine in like we did, but mostly do takeout. Four firemen were ahead of us getting takeout so that was a good sign. The wait for the food was pretty long, but the food was well worth it. Many of the customers appeared to be Jamaican which is a sign of quality ethnic food.... More

I consider this to be the best meal on my recent seven day trip to Georgia and Alabama. My spouse and I both had a generous portion of the jerk chicken that was quite tasty and well spiced. The main dish came with two sides. The restaurant isn't fancy, but I wasn't expecting fine dining. Our waitress was a bit... More

I visited this restaurant after taking someone to pick up food. They swore by it so I checked it out the following week. As an islander myself, the food was good. I tried the lunch portion curry chicken with rice and peas and steamed cabbage. Everything tasted great. I don't eat everyone's rice and peas but theirs was delish. They... More

Easily in the top 5 best eateries amongst most Caribbean folks in Atlanta. Everything is hot, fresh and delicious! Curry goat, brown stew fish and chicken, patties, escovich fish, roti, callaloo, the soups ... everything here is crazy good. They also have an extensive vegetarian menu. I'm sure it's good, but curry goat is my weakness so I usually have... More
