Digest this mini review in 60 seconds
Venue Bringing a taste of the Caribbean to the busy streets of Chorlton, the cosy venue is beautifully decorated in all its multicoloured wooden splendour, think copper pendant bulb lights, playful art on the walls and tasty cocktails. There is plenty of seating outside too, making it the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon in South Manchester.
Menu Our party of five was welcomed with a zingy Sicilian Lemonade (£2.30) each and in true Caribbean style we tucked straight into the mains. The portions were generous and perfect for sharing, my friends ordered two portions of Curry Goat (£7.45) and shared a portion of Coconut Rice and Mixed Peas and Skin-on Chips, both (£3). One enjoyed the flavours of Steak Stew Peas (£9.50) with a portion of rice, it’s a cooked down casserole of beef, boiled dumplings and spices. The rest of us tucked into Jerk Chicken (£7) and Coconut Rice and Mixed Peas (£3), authentically marinated in herbs and spices and then flame grilled to order. The aroma of expertly barbequed chicken filled the air, transporting you to the exotic islands. There is a list of tempting breakfast bites, so be sure to pop in before noon one day.
Décor and Ambience Wonderfully decorated restaurant on the Barlow Moor Road strip of restaurants, it’s filled with colours and extremely cosy, think classic beach shack bar on a sunny Caribbean beach. The atmosphere is playful; you’ll hear the sounds of Bob Marley and Groove Theory and smell the spices in the air.
Service Helpful and Quick.
