Caribbean in Inverness? Had a fantastic dinner here. Don't miss it! Jerk chicken was amazing. This place deserves more business. You will not be disappointed and the value for money is great.

Turned up on Halloween. Made very welcome by the chef who also subbed as the baran and waiter marvellously. We were offered complimentary starter. Curried goat and jerk chicken were both very tasty. Heartily recommended!

Ordered jerk chicken and rice & peas. Love the food, spicy and flavoursome. Give them a try if you are looking for something different in Inverness.
