Ambience, food and cocktails were lovely. Only downside was the music was too loud, at times I couldn’t hear what my friend was saying. Definitely need a reasonable level for the music

A beautifully tucked away hidden gem in the centre of a very busy Camden. Very busy and lively with the ambiance of a very real Jamaica. First they have their own cocktails with a very Jamaican home coming theme. 10/10 for those. The food was delightfully presented picture perfect. The taste of what was ordered was authentic and rich in flavour. I will return without a doubt.

Was disappointing. Atmosphere and vibe was on point but the food was a let down. Not authentic Jamaican food IMO. The rice and peas was just not right at all. The plantain was just about warm and their Jamaican style fried chicken was chicken tenders from Tesco! My mate got the jerk chicken roti and I tried a bit and again it is not authentic jerk Jamaican jerk chicken. The mac and cheese as good however. Overall, I would not be recommending anyone to try it out. I didn't try the jerk chicken as it was quite pricey for even a quarter so can't really tell you how that would have fared but was not impressed to be honest!

Excellent everything! The goat curry and the pina coladas! We added and person to our table and everyone helped to make it work. The doorman and every member of staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They all went above and beyond. This place is a must!!! Thanks so just for an incredible experience. We will be back!!!

All round a very nice restaurant and the food is good quality. Only down side is the level of noise... bare in mind there was a birthday celebration beside our table.

The food is absolutely amazing. The cocktails are great also, depending on which bar staff make it (the two guys are much better). The music is fun and inviting, lovely atmosphere in a great location. Very authentic

Great food, shame the service was under par- main course came the same time as the starter! We ordered some cocktails without ice, but they came with ice! Still, I love the place... just need to get the service sorted out.

Food, music and atmosphere were great. However on the evening I visited there was only 2 waiting staff (don't know if this is usually the case) which meant the ordering was very slow. Food was delicious as we're the drinks.

Was placed in a very dark corner with dim lighting, so could hardly see the menu let alone what was on my plate.

Mangers wasn't very accommodating or willing to allow me and my fellow diners to move to a different table.

Very nice staff, awesome decor!
Only downside for me as a vegetarian was that 90% of their veggie dishes were not available when i tried to order (vegan chikn wrap, halloumi wrap etc). Even french fries were out of stock...

But the rum cocktails were AMAZING, and the calamari starter was amazing (although very small portion- only 4 squid rings for £6). Mac and cheese side was also yummy, and my fiancee had the oxtail main and loved it!

Booked online with no probem. Staff were very friendly and efficient and the food came promptly and was delicious. Unfortunately my wife and I were too full to eat a dessert, but will try for one next time as we plan to visit again soon.

We do not wish to complain about the quality of food as we are pescetarians, but we think there ought to be more fish dishes for a Jamaican restaurant.

When we did the booking we filled in the occasion as "birthday", hoping a happy birthday from staff members. Nothing of that sort came about. In fact when we arrived no one even checked our booking against a guest list. No contact tracing.

The server was unable to advise us on drinks. She said she didn't drink. In general, servers were over attentive and were very keen to collect half-done dishes.
