Delicious food with good service. Every time I've been there the food has been on point and service excellent. Chicken, plantains, goat- all delicious. Not many cheaper options, otherwise I'd go more! The decor is a bit off to me with padded tables that remind me of an old pizza place. The chef takes pride in his food and has come out to talk to us each time.

I enjoy Chef Carl Lewis' unique cooking so much I just asked him to cater our office holiday party. The jerk chicken introduced some of our picky eaters to true Caribbean cuisine. Chef prepared amazing roast turkey and stuffing for those uncurious and unwilling to experiment. Fried plantains were also eye-openers to the uninitiated, along with salmon pasta and red beans and rice. We have never received so many compliments from our staff for an amazing holiday adventure. Go. Try. Enjoy.

Loved it! The conch fritters are a yummy, spiced cornbread with bits of conch meat, perfectly fried and served with a sweet/tangy white dipping sauce. Sort of an island-improved falafel. The "large" entree of jerk chicken - delicious and perfectly prepared. And plenty generous, anyone who might order this particular item and complain about portion sizes must have an enormous stomach!

Upscale island inspired dishes in a chic modern space. The Caribbean wings are sweet with a little kick. The rasta pasta with salmon is creamy and filling. Great spot for a date!

I went here for the first time this week and I was very pleasantly surprised. The inside is very neat and clean, fun colors and a comfortable atmosphere. I got the jerk chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries, which was great. But what really stood out to me was the service- the waitress was very friendly and attentive, and at one point the young man sweeping the floor noticed our water glasses were empty and stopped what he was doing to fill them. Towards the end of our meal the chef came out to ask our opinion on the food and the service. I loved my experience here, I will definitely be coming back. I really hope this place lasts.

Emaculate n clean faciliy, Good hospitality, great customer service. However, not enough cluck for the buck or spice for the price. In other words too much money for the quantity on the takeout tray. I had the oxtail plate little rice n mostly bones for the entree. I did call to inform them. I intend to go back again in hopes of change but only one more chance will be given as it will be my 4th time.

Greeters are welcoming.

Simple & authentic menu items or other choices with a twist!

Only did takeout.... next time I will eat in!

The taste and flavor was amazing!

Heard great things & they defiantly live up to it!

I ordered the blackened talapia with mango salsa w/ garlic mash & collard greens!

I will be back & soon!

This place is one of West Philly's best kept secret. I've been here several times and often get the tilapia or the salmon entrees. The food is always fresh, the service is super nice. It's a nice and relaxing place to have some good home cooking.

I had the weekend brunch and everything was fabulous. I ordered biscuits and sausage gravy, which was some of the best I've ever tasted. The eggs and potatoes were also great. I ordered a side of scrapple, which was perfectly cooked and very flavorful from a local butcher. I finished with a side of delicious, plump and juicy fried sweet platains. Delicious!

The food is always perfectly cooked , from the rice to the pasta , veggies and meats. Their flavors are authentic and delicious . Sometimes you get a personal visit from the Chef too. I love that its byob! If it's your first time try the island wings and Rasta pasta.

Tastes like home cooked and better. Great portions for the price you pay. Pulled pork sandwich was a wonderful mix of sweet and tangy.

Authentic Jamaican cuisine. Great ambience and friendly staff. This is definitely a place I'll return to for great tasting food.

The chef can out and greeted us and we spoke about the menu briefly.

We had the traditional breakfast, ackee and salt fish, fried dumplings, plantains and for some reason collards, but it was still good. We also had the shrimp and grits which had great flavor and was cooked to perfection.

Stephanie S

Wonderful food!

The ox tail was so yummy and sooo tender.

The Jamaican Jerk quesedilla was great.

The hostess, waitress and chef (he came out to meet us) were very nice, and very friendly and proud of the quality of their food.

I'll be back!

Sounds like they have an amazing brunch.

My food was delicious!!! I had jerk chicken wings cooked to perfection & the pineapple ranch dip was to die for! The peas and rice was amazing! My favorite is the vegetable slaw OMG! All hats off to the CHEF!

The food was great but the customer service could have been better. They did not seem prepared to handle a busy environment. This place has the potential to be very successful. The food is on point, just focus more on the customers make sure they are enjoying their experience even if the place is busy because being busy is a good thing in the restaurant business.

Omg the curry goat was sooooo good!!! That was the most tender and best tasting goat I ever had! The cabbage was also very good.

The best Jamaican food a Jamaican could ever want to eat. I remember thinking after taking the first bite of my order: at last, a Jamaican restaurant that actually has food that TASTES like Jamaican food. The Chef comes out to interact with his customers! Great tableside manners. The ambiance is unbelievable. A diamond in the rough. Go!! You must!!!

Donna M

We were seated in less than a minute. Our order came 10-15 minutes later. The food was good!! The chef himself comes out and talks to the diners, which I think is a good thing.

Food was divine! Chef was very kind and makes it a personal experience by stopping by each table to introduce himself and ask for customer feedback. Be sure to bring your wine and spirits, as it is BYOB.

My friend stumbled upon this place a few months ago and had been raving about it since. I finally understood all the hype after dining there last night. We got two orders of the island wings which were TO DIE FOR! Hands down some of the BEST wings I've ever had. For dinner we had the Rasta Pasta which was also very good. Our waitress and the hostess were very welcoming and seemed to really care about how we were enjoying our meal. Will definitely return and bring more friends!

Tonight was my second time eating at this fantastic little gem in West Philly. I ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich and Jerk Wings and both were delicious. Was I embarrassed to luck my fingers in public? Definitely not here. Chef Carl's creations are excellent! Not too spicy, just the right amount of heat and always fresh. This will be my new spot to get fat. Don't come here if you want to be skinny!

The food is very good; but since they've recently eliminated the choice on sides, I don't want to order my favorite brown stew chicken. I always got it with garlic mashed potatoes and cabbage or broccoli. Now I'm forced to take Rice and beans and pay for a side of mashed potatoes. I'm not really fond of Caribbean style beans and rice (too dry)!) so I'm forced to pass or

I really like the quaintness of the atmosphere in this restaurant. I also like the professional service. And I like the fact that the chef comes to the table and asks how was your meal? It's awesome! It is close to where I live! And I really truly love this place.

My family and I love this restaurant. The flavors in chef's food are amazing. I have had Jamaican food before but never this good.The chef who is also the founder came out and spoke to us. He is a very nice man. We had a great time. Our service was great. The atmosphere was friendly. The decor is really on point. We will be back soon. Thank y'all for the delicious food and service.

The ambience was great! A real nice feel to it. The waitress was polite, humble and firm. The food was delicious and piping hot when it arrived. The only bummer was that you couldn't substitute fries for sweet potato fries...whatever came with it, came with it!

Clean friendly place. This was my first visit for take out and we were very pleased with the meat pattie, oxtails, red bean soup, the cabbage was too American. I will definitely eat here again

i had the chance to meet one of the owners of this establishment today on a train ride into Philadelphia, and although i have never eaten there before, i highly recommend it to anyone considering. i’ll always support people who spread positivity, words of wisdom, and put a smile on others faces out of the kindness of their heart, and you should to. Not to mention, the food looks pretty damn good too!

Tue brunch was delicious, very fresh and the space is very quaint. I was disappointed that fresh juices aren’t served for Sunday brunch, but overall a great experience.

If you want so delicious authentic good quality food, this is the right place! Went there on Friday night with my boyfriend and we had jerk chicken and blackened tilapia. Both meals were very flavorful, I could tell all the ingredients were fresh. Their desserts also looked delicious, will be definitely trying when coming back. The only downside was a bit of a wait - about 30-40min for our orders, but the food didn't disappoint. Price was also fair: we paid $32 together without a tip. It could get higher with an appetizer and dessert, but the quality and portion size is worth the price.

This place is upscale in my opinion. They are a bit more pricey than an average Jamaican take out place. The quality of the food is great though! I love the curry chicken entree with a slice of cornbread.

Debby B

4/18/2018

Solid, delicious food with satisfying portions. I had the Chili glazed salmon (perfectly cooked) with mashed yams (balanced sweetness, filling ) and string beans (cool upon arrival). Left with a slice of chocolate cake that was dense, moist, choclatey and decadent.

Needs a little work on establisting some ambience (soft carribean music, a few splashes of pink, giant bowls of limes or mangoes?) and making it feel a little more intimate (bring tables close together, change lighting,).

I'll be back for that decadent chocolate cake alone. (:

My cousin and I went today for brunch. The place was clean. Nice ambiance. We received our chicken appetizer. Sweet chili chicken. It was pretty delicious. It was cooked perfectly with a nice crunch. I had the pancakes and home fries. They were very tasty. Nice and fluffy. The homefries were cooked well with all the right toppings. Onions, green and red peppers. I would defintely recommend this place. I will beo going back to try other dishes. The best part about all of this the owner/chef came out while we were on our way out, to greet and thank us for coming.That was really superb. 😃

Best Caribean food in West Philly. Everything is fresh and made to order. Chef is very nice. He comes to your table to talk and recieve feedback. A little pricey compared to other spots like this but you get what you pay for. Helpings are enough for 2 meals. Yum!!!

Last night I went there. They offer vegetarian dishes which was awesome! Their are a bit high but the food was delicious. I ordered A disj with salmon and 1 red velvet cake and 1 carrot cake. It came to $35.00 . Yeah a bit high . But the person enjoyed the dish from them.

8/25/2018

Delicious food, I got the sweet chili glazed salmon and it was so good that when my friend spilled my food I went back for seconds. Even though the kitchen was closed at the time, they still let us order and they were so nice about it. They understand how good their food is.

I don't get to come here often but the food is fantastic every time. Today I had the lemon herb grilled chicken sandwich and I loved it! Everyone who works here is always friendly and I feel right at home!

9/25/2018

I got this delivered to me, and it's not the Oxtail I know and love. I'm also allergic to carrots, and while I told them and they offered alternate meals (I just decided that they probably just didn't want to take off the vegetables), I kept the Oxtail. Needless to say, the oxtail wasn't that great, and braised through with carrots (even in the rice and peas), which made no sense. The food wasn't too bad, but it's not authentic Jamaican food.
