Great restaurant, great good, amazing staff. I really enjoyed the food here and talking with the owner and staff they're all pleasant. Definitely one of my new favourite Jamaican restaurants in town.

This place is amazing. Hole in the wall right downtown. It's on my roster of quality food at a low price. Can't say enough good things. The owner even showed me his kitchen at the end of the day. The fridge and freezer were virtually empty! His new shipment came in that evening so you know everything is fresh made the day of. Plus their lunch special is great value.

This place is purely blessed It's been getting chilly and I've been missing my grannie's cooking a lot since she's no longer able to cook for family functions. I've been dying for some familiar, actually good Caribbean cuisine. I've had a couple sad attempts from other local places. Won't name any names but with one exception, save this gem, there isn't any real authentic Caribbean food to be found in Hamilton, nevermind for delivery. I took a chance with true to roots after seeing them advertised in city centre. I've been taken right back to grannies table. The obvious passion for food and culture that goes into this food is second to none. It shows so strongly in the gravy and coleslaw, no shortcuts or copouts here - every detail is taken care of. We ordered medium size jerk chicken, medium fry chicken and a side of plantain. Delivered to my door, still hot, with a bonus side of house gravy (to die for) for each dish in under 45minutes. Don't waste your time anywhere else....
