A small place near downtown and just a few blocks from the canal museum. Many interesting items on the menu, things we hadn't tried anywhere, so we ordered them. Wonderful! Large portions, good prices, extensive menu of Jamaican foods, helpful staff. We'll definitely return.

I really enjoyed the spices they put in the food however, I gave it 4 stars because I am not a fan of so many green peppers. Overall, customer service is great!
