Love it, been going there for years. Only tried their jerk chicken. Good prices and the best jerk and pepper sauce I have eaten.

I didn't feel well after this meal, the 3/5 hygiene certificate on the door seemed a little over generous too, not my idea of edible food at any price. Left me with that oily salty MSG feeling. I appreciate many people like this place so suggest you treat them kindly and renovate and clean your building. I won't be returning.

Smokey Jerkey is another long time favourite in New Cross Gate. Although there is no seating area here, this place does a lively trade in Caribbean take away. Staff is friendly and helpful. Speedy service is always provided with a smile and the tempting jerk chicken will always raise your spirits..

You would never know it from the outside but Smokey Jerkey is a new cross gem. Especially the lamb and pork in my opinion!

Best jerk chicken around. Look terrible from the outside, but is a local legend. Get you jerk chicken here, you won't regret it.

I've been coming here since 2007 and although I've long moved out the area, still drive over here. I'm not a huge fan of most Jerk Chicken places in London anyway, the food is sometimes so so, the service can be challenging, but the owner of this place is a diamond guy and you get friendly service and fantastic food...
