  • review rating 4  Loved the expansion and full liquor service. Great portions for the price and food looked appealing. The seat-in area in the expanded area could use more welcoming seating arrangement maybe with some booths and also nice dining tables that provides a great ambien for a date. Tone down the music as the two TVs are running in the background. I know this is work in progress and I truly applaud the effort for this unique Jamaican Restaurant.
