I ordered some Conch fritters and some Curry Goat which came out pretty fast and was very yummy. I am definitely eating here!! I will say the jerk is really spicy i'm not a spicy person and even the beef patties have a little kick to them. So much so that they tend to run out of a menu item because literally it's soo good. Happy hour specials are what I come for. The servers were attentive and nice, and the prices are fair.
I'm in Richmond often and it'll be a regular stop. The only reason why this place stays alive is due to the enslaved married men that visit for eye candy. Would not come back again. I didn't even realize it wasn't cold until my boyfriend mentioned it ironic because typically, food is wanted hot. I went to the random part of the menu, to see if i could catch them slipping and order something they don't do well lol! Chicken was tender, juicy, the sauce was not spicy with a very small hint of chocolate which let you taste all the spices and finished with sesame seeds. We had 2 of the ceviches, Karina's and Doña Ines.
She did however stop to ask the couple seated at the table next to us, if everything was alright. We ordered shrimp taquitos appetizer, ceviche the one with pineapple , Tierra y Mar platers and shrimp cocktail. An employee with a foul attitude always affects a business's ability to move from generating good revenue to Outstanding revenue! You can't even see your food. My cousin's friend recommended Carena's Jamaican Grille. Casual feel, music and a tv playing and a very relaxed vibe. My previous review still stands. I honestly was really impressed by this act of kindness alone.
They have a huge selection of sea food and it's right off the 805 freeway so it's convenient on my way home to stop by this place. The rice and beans was cooked perfectly, soft rice and moist beans, and the Cole slaw had a island savory flavor and wasn't regular style but was very good and went well with the flavor of the chicken. We have had to Catherine Prillaman Cooper I just finished the book. You don't have to leave hungry if you don't want to! The service was great, but the food deserves to be labeled as weapons of mass destruction. For dessert, choose from flan, cheesecake and tres leches cake. The gravy wasn't too salty and enough to add to each spoonful of rice and cabbage. The waitress, was a total mess, there were so many things wrong with that particular waitress 1 She was unprofessional, didn't smile and she wasn't friendly at all.
I am happy my family enjoyed their first taste of Jamaican food. Not available in all locations. The lady helping us looked like she hated life and was just horrible at her job. The ox tails, cabbage and rice and peas are my fave! This place has amazing food! So when i try out a new spot it's with expectations and I'm pretty hard critic. This location is closer to my boyfriend's place, but I always go to the one at Otay Mall, and I like that one better. So i know he knew better then to bring me somewhere lame.
After 3 more people walked in and asked to have the volume turned up on the nfl playoff game bears v eagles, I asked to speak to the manager. As our main course we got the curry chicken, jerk chicken, and a shrimp dish. When I say actually nice, I mean authentic, while everyone else working didn't even really smile when working. Went yesterday for lunch with about 7 friends. This location is closer to my boyfriend's place, but I always go to the one at Otay Mall, and I like that one better. Definitely won't be coming to this spot.
December 8, 2018 We arrived during lunch but after the rush crowd, so the place wasn't busy. Smh This place has really good customer service and there food is amazing I love coming to this place because of there service is always on point. I love when Jorge is bartending. The tostadas were delicious, and the spicy aioli I believe it was made it even better. It was like a lemon-y honey mustard aoli.
Service was great for us. It was served cold to the point that the cheese on top of the refried beans resembled dried snot. If you ignore my warnings and visit here have a look around. And what made it even better was the food. I would rate the food 3. I can imagine how busy this restaurant is during the dinner service. Everything about them was much better!!
