LWL Silver Award – Awarded October 2011 – Cost £££

It was lovely to lunch with a friend I hadn’t seen for far too long; she recommended we go to this fairly recently opened Caribbean restaurant. I’m so glad we did, it was exciting to try a new cuisine.  The restaurant was buzzing which is not surprising as the food is good plus there are some very reasonably priced choices on the menu.

At the moment they have cocktails at 2 4 1 so we had a very refreshing mix of Sailor Jerry Rum and ginger beer, can’t remember what  it was called.

The starters looked good but we opted to just have a main course as we could see the portions were generous. I chose Trinidad Shrimp & Mango Curry, Slow cooked shrimps, mango, sweet potato, tomato, garlic, ginger, spices, onions, coriander, served with rice & peas, grilled flatbread & chopped mango mole, £9.50 and my friend had Blue Mountain Goat Curry, a Caribbean classic made with a blend of curry spices, tomatoes & sweet potato served with rice & peas, mango chutney & grilled flatbread, also £9.50. My choice was the favourite, I loved it, the goat was very tender but the curry was a bit hotter than expected.
We shared a Lime Meringue Pie, Short crust tart filled with sweet & sharp lime curd, baked meringue crust, £4.50 and finished with coffees. An excellent lunch served by young and enthusiastic staff, we will definitely go again!They are open all day. Cost just over £££

5/5 = Cannot be improved upon, 4/5 = Very good, 3/5 = Good,
2/5 = Satisfactory, 1/5 = Poor, 0/5 = Terrible

The higher the “Yummy” factor, the better the food & service. The higher the number of £ signs the more expensive. (Roughly one £ sign = £5 per head)
