Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came across this lovely little gem on a day out with the kids. Couldn't be run by a more welcoming lady Dre. We got the curry goat, and chicken, both juicy and tender. Well worth a visit !!

Amazing food and great friendly service. The goat curry is to die for, we all ordered different dishes and they were all delicious. The food came quickly and the portions were really generous. Highly recommended!

Not bad but as Caribbean enthusiasts we’ve had a lot better. The plantain was delicious though! Lovely spot on the pier though!

I visited Dre’s with my folks during a visit to the pier with my daughter. The food was phenomenal (as usual) and I can’t wait to go again soon as Dre’s is open throughout the summer holidays. If you haven’t been before I implore you...to do yourself a favour and get down there. I had the vegetarian curry, fried plantain, rice and peas, and coleslaw with some mango chutney and red pepper sauce. Absolute taste sensation, thank you Dre!More

So popular and with good reason. A lovely warm welcome and top notch food. Really delicious goat, beef or lamb curry, plus veggie options. Either as a hearty treat on the pier or as a meal to take home. Patties are superb.Get there early or...ring and reserve. Don't risk turning up to be disappointed. Either get there at 12 when it's open or Ring ahead to secure your delicious food!More

Jamaican take-out in Herne Bay seems unlikely, but Covid has forced Dre's to offer delivery, luckily for us. This was really good, homemade food, wholesome and fantastically tasty. Recommend the curry goat and the Jamaican patties, so, so good.

Reviewed 11 July 2020

The last place I thought I’d find good Jamaican food is the end of Herne Bay pier!! The curry goat was honestly sensational. Having eaten Jamaican food all over South London, Dre’s is HANDS DOWN the best I’ve ever had. The meat was so tender...it literally just fell off the bone and the fat just melted like butter. Even the coleslaw and rice were amazing, and my sister had the plantain which was divine as well! I really can’t wait to come back and get a bigger portion next time!!More
