“Screaming Chef”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

There is 14 people in a restaurant built for 40, we arrived to a 2/3 empty restaurant with no booking. We were sat down to a by a unhappy waitress who continued to to tell us how stressed she was to have 14 people in a restaurant built for 40 people. She was rude when taking our order and advised us that we couldn't share our dosages as the chef would get angry and kick us out. When our food arrived it was accompanied by the Chef who abuse out table and was screaming and shouted at us saying that he doesn't cater to walk in customer even though we we're say down by the waitress. He embarrassed us in front of the other customers and our guests who had come international to visit us and we recommended this restaurant to them. It was so bad we quickly ate and left as the chef ruined out night. He was still screaming at us from the kitchen when we left. I would not recommend this restaurant at all based on their customer service. We are local people and there are much better restaurants out there with good food and service.

“Fantastic, Value for money, Excellent Food ....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

I have visited this restaurant twice - first time was in Dec 2013 and second visit was recently on the 27th of March 2014. On both occasions, I was not disappointed.

What can I say about the food, except delicious, mouth-watering, the best I have tasted, fresh, tasty, wholesome, bursting with flavour, oh gosh need I continue? What is there not to like about this excellent value for money cuisine, at a restaurant that is centrally located. N.O.T.H.I.N.G

Re the service, well as long as you don't try to take the 'p', then there really is nothing to complain about.

For a party of 5 who had 2x 3 types of starters (crab-claws, vegetable spring rolls & callaloo+saltfish), 5 mains (2x chicken curry, 1x curry goat and 2x fried fish in sauce) which comes with either plain rice or rice and peas (we all opted for the rice and peas), 2x 3 types of side orders (fried sweet potatoes, plantain and fried potatoes), 4x fresh carrot juice and 1 bottle of coke and 3x coffees - the bill (excluding tips) came to a GRAND TOTAL of £72.50 - which worked out at £14.50 per person - at a location not too far off from London Bridge and Tower Gateway.

However there is one Massive SNAG .....

Orville, the owner and chef informed us that he would be retiring thus the restaurant will be closing for good at the end of April 2014. Without a doubt, this would be a loss to us satisfied diners. So if you would like to experience one of the best Caribbean cuisine around at the moment, then I suggest you get in there before end April 2014.

My friends and I intend to pay it one last visit in the month of April. And boy, are we looking forward to the day!

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

Always wanted to try this place and finally paid it a visit last week. As opposed to some of the reviews below the service was absolutely fine, very friendly and helpful. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, and the food was excellent value for money. Ordered 2 mains, 2 sides and two drinks which came to 20 only. Something you will rarely come across in central london!

Because the food was so much they even offered to pack it up for us to take home.
