After reading the other thread, I stopped in yesterday...it is right across the street from where I exit the garage. The place was spotlessly clean and the man behind the counter was very nice. I told him I heard about the place on a website and he nodded and smiled! I was in a rush so just ordered 2 Jamaican meat patties and a bottle of water. They were yummy! They were nicely flavored, but not at all spicy (which I should have asked about and did not). Got them home (they traveled well) and added some Siracha, and they were delicious! I asked him about the Jerk chicken and curry goat (an old fave from Jamaica vacations) and he said they were good...I will definitely go again!
Do they make their own patties? Every Jamaican place in town that I know of buys them from the same distributor (Island?). They're pretty good though.
I had lunch from there Saturday, I just wanted the small Jerk Chicken but the guy talked me into the medium. The jerk chicken was tasty and very moist but tasted almost like the jerk marinade paste I buy made by Grace, I get it from the Shoppers Food ethnic foods aisle, good stuff, the hot is very hot. I am not saying they use that, it was just very similar. The rice and peas were pretty bland, the "steamed vegetables" that came with it was really just buttered cabbage. I would probably try it again, maybe something curried next time, I just wasn't floored by it.
My son and I ate here saturday. I had the jerk chicken. My son had the oxtails. We were very satisfied. We especially loved the oxtails. The service was great also.
