“Not good.”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Ordered 2 Large Jerk Chicken with rice and peas. When it arrived over an hour later (i live within a mile of the restaurant on Smithdown Road) the food was completely cold, the chicken was tough, rice was dry, and the 'large' portion sizes were the same size as the Lark Lane 'small'.
Quite dissappointed and still hungry.

“Good wholesome Caribbean Food”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

The food at Raggas is great, good wholesome authentic Caribbean cooking. Caribbean is my favourite food, so we come to Ragga's regularly, or sometimes buy it to re-heat at home for our tea! The Jerk Chicken with Rice and Peas is absolutely fantastic. The Curried Mutton is pretty good too. It's very basic inside, more a cafe than a restaurant, with only a few seats and an informal atmosphere. The food isn't made fresh to order either, its prepared in bulk that morning and micro-waved when you order. That doesn't stop us keeping coming back for more though. Get here early as some things (usually patties, dumplings and festivals) tend to run out. Raggas already have another cafe in Toxteth (this one on Lark Lane is a bit nicer inside, though the food is the same in both), I think if they opened a bigger place, a proper restaurant, that it would be massively popular.

“Make sure you get there early”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Always a favourite, we head up here every other month. The cafe has been remodelled and looks much nicer, it's also warmer too which is great.
There were literally 2 things on the menu still available at 9pm when we got there, but steak and sweet potato with rice and peas was fab. Ice cold cans available in the fridge, comfy seats and good music. I wish they had more available at the times we can make it, but other than that ir was excellent.

“Good Food, Nice Staff”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

This is a good restaurant with honest, clean and tasty food. I had the jerk chicken with rice and peas, sweet potato mash and slaw. All very tasty, wouldn't have minded a bit more chicken, but this was good value for £7.50. You can bring your own beer for a small corkage fee.
Decent music in the background. Lark Lane can often disappoint where food is concerned....often overpriced and bland. This is proper soul food and served by two friendly and good looking women....what's not to like!
