The kids menu makes a nice change from chicken nugget standard. My 5 year old loved his jerk chicken with "rice and peas". Good selection of salads and wraps too. Sitting outside to watch the world go by.

What a super place!Relaxed, friendly service and great food, ideal for those who can handle a healhy portion - definitely camp friendly:).I'm just down from London visiting friends here and it really reminds me of Shoreditch (when Shoreditch was actually quite good). Go, get fed, and giggle with good people.

We've been here a number of times as we live nearby and every meal we've had has been amazing. The portions are huge and the food really tasty - jerk red mullet and brown chicken stew being among our favourites - and there's a good selection of veggie options too. Love it, will be back again soon :)

My boyfriend discovered this restaurant working with Deliveroo, so we decided to try it as customers. The service was really good and the Lady who served us was really kind. The food took some time to arrive, but i suppose is because the food is cooked fresh, and i prefer to wait a little bit if the quality will be higher.
I recommend this restaurant

We arrived at the end of what had seemed a very busy day for them. We were told they had run out of lots of food items and some beers.

First of all we had to find someone to order. We then didn’t have our drinks till over 25 minutes after we arrived which we had to ask for twice.

Our food then took over an hour to arrive during which we asked for another drink which again didn’t arrive without prompting.

When our food did come it wasn’t what we ordered and on mentioning this to the waitress she just walked off. On return she apologised and said she just wanted to go home because she had had a busy day. We weren’t given any cutlery to eat our food as she just walked off.

The food tasted good but the goat curry was all bone. We mentioned this and then she said due to the mix up of food there was some spare we could have but we would be ‘eating her dinner’!?!

The table behind us left without paying they were so frustrated by this point.

We asked for this to be reflected in the price. They gave us a free drink each and still charged us for the food we ordered but was incorrect.

Then to finish the night the toilets were filthy with no toilet roll in any cubicle

Wow, this sounds like something out of fawlty towers. Awful experience which is a shame as the wrap (which wasn’t the one I ordered) was tasty.

We won’t be coming back.
