Went to Marla’s for lunch. We had curry goat and chicken pelau. The wait is long but worth it. The food is very good. Service is not the best but sometimes you overlook little things for good food. 😋

I absolutely love Marla's. They have fantastically seasoned food. I love the small, intimate seating, there is only about 10 tables and the island atmosphere. They food portions are good and the food is delicious. Prepare to wait if you go at any dinner time.

This is a great little hidden gem in Minneapolis. I would probably eat here a few times a week if I lived in the area. The place is very welcoming, the food is great, service is good and the portion sizes are more than generous....More

This is one of the best restaurants in the Twin Cities! The food is perfect (but spicy!), the service was excellent, the prices are not bad, and the atmosphere is laid-back. The restaurant is a hole-in-the-wall kind of establishment, and I'm so glad I found...More

I miss the Jamaica Jamaica that used to be here but, the food is very similar and quite good. No pork though. I've been to the Marla's on Lake Street. I would recommend it to anyone who likes it hot.

Visited Marla's with a friend from Trinidad. Had a nice visit with Marla and enjoyed her Caribbean "Brown Down Stew" with shrimp. Very tasty and very ample portion. Marla is a hoot and very lovely person. We will be visiting again and again.
