I know good African food , and this definitely was not ! When you work in a resturant I recommend knowing the food your serving and getting a cook that knows what African food actually is .

Great tasty food with personal service and a smile. It's not a city Jamaican place - that's in the name AFRICAN CARIBBEAN. A great range of well cooked food with a calm friendly atmosphere. The fried fish was particularly good. Many thanks.

Really delicious, well prepared and presented food. We had the platter which enabled us to try the moist, well spiced jerk chicken, pan-fried tilapia fillet in lovely pepper sauce and gorgeously comforting goat curry. The fried plantain and jollof rice were also great. Can't wait...More
