    Jerk chicken, curry shrimp, calypso shrimp, stew chicken are all standouts. You really can't go wrong with anything here. The rice and peas that accompany most dishes is outstanding.

    This beautiful place is not only awesome because it's byob, but due to the deliciousness of its spicy food. The calypso shrimp, jerk chicken, plantains, and roti skin were all amazing!

    Ridiculous huge portions of West Indian food in odd-shaped venue. Oxtail, jerk chicken, curried goat are faves so far. Really can't go wrong. I love the steamed cabbage and rice and peas. Possible MSG

    Cozy byob spot with very friendly staff. Food was so delicious. Order the jerk chicken and the oxtail. Come with sides of rice and peas, cooked cabbage, and a salad. Can't wait to go back

    The food is so good here, I get take out from here all the time! Surprisingly the take out tastes just as good as when you get it there, thats not the case for most places! Jerk chicken is the best!

    Lucky Peach: "Portions are generous here: spicy, tender jerk chicken and curry goat come served on wide platters with plantains and coconut rice, most of them big enough to share."

    This place is as the reviews claim; genuine home cooking. Felt like I was back home. Great flavor, great portions, worth the trip. And as noted, it's truly a hole in the wall; limited seating.

    Jerk chicken is a MUST. Portions are huge. Ambience is ... set to feel like you're in a really really small boat. And it's BYO. Wins all around. Hidden gem and will def be back.

    Jerk chicken, goat curry, Mac and cheese, plantains. Go there, right now. Order ahead, and sit on the steps of the Bk museum.

    Generous portions (a "small" plate is plenty) of chicken, shrimp, goat, and oxtail come with rice and salads, an authentic and delicious low-frills meal. 続きを見る

    Call in and order take out. Not much space at the restaurant. Everything curried is good. Get extra cabbage on the side as that stuff is dooooope.

    This tiny eatery has a pint-sized dining area, but the flavors and portions they put out are nothing to scoff out. Get the Jerk Chicken with Rice and Beans; a large will be enough for two meals.

    Quaint. Authentic. Delicious. Spicy. Savory. Curry shrimp. Jerk chicken. Mac & Cheese. Do it.

    tiny cash-only 4-seat spot (sometimes with service upstairs) serving fine curry and jerk dishes. it just *feels* good to be here with someone on a warm sunny afternoon.

    Its a hard debate whether this or Glady's is better. They are the two best Caribbean places I have been to in Prospect Heights - Crown Heights, in Brooklyn & in New York City.

    FAVORITE restaurant. The Islands man is super wonderful and generous, though he has a pretty thick accent. The food is delicious, too. :D Mmm stewed oxtails & calypso shrimp ...

    Ignore the menu and ask what is ready. There is always a chicken and a veg dish ready.

    Head to the kitty-corner bodega and grab a couple of Red Stripe beer before settling in at the upstairs dining room for Amazing jerk chicken.

    The sweet ladies that run this teeny tiny space are serving up some of the best Jerk Chicken and the Curry Goat around. Don’t rush here as you’re now on Island time.

    Best Jamaican food in Brooklyn. Try the fried dumplings. Better than my mother's. Don't tell her I said that.

    Everyone's right -- the jerk chicken is amazing. Get it. A large was more than my husband and I could finish.

    A whole in the wall on Washington Ave. One of the best hidden gems in the Prospect Heights / Crown Heights area.

    The best jerk shrimp I've had. Very small shop with a couple of tables upstairs.

    Service is slow but worth the wait for enormous servings of some of the city's best Caribean food.

    Certain items are sold out on some days so ask before you try to make decision. Also, small plate is actually huge!

    The most amazing jerk chicken ever. Take out orders are prioritized over dine-in orders. I think you know what to do.

    The mac & cheese is very good. Substitute it for the rice for $2.
