Any Jamaican Restaurant recommendations ... esp. for Ackee and Salt Fish?

Looking for a good Jamaican restaurant in the greater LA area (e.g. 213, 310, 323, 818, 626).

Would really like to find a place that serves Ackee and Salt Fish.

Tried Ginja Lions -- ick.
Natraliart left me bored.
Derrick's does not have Ackee and is generally mediocre.
Wi Jammin is so-so.

Any leads?

Thanks very much.

  1. How about Port Royal on 14th and Broadway in Santa Monica?

    Call first, they open approximately when they feel like it and close when the good stuff is gone.

    1. Not sure if they serve ackee and I haven't been in awhile but Coley's on Crensaw has good Jamacian food.
