This place has been open about 3 weeks now, situated right beside the new location of Dynasty Buffet in Franklin Square. They have 2 other locations in Charlotte. The staff is very welcoming, and the atmosphere is great. A portrait of Bob Marley was hanging on the wall, Island music was playing on the speakers, and Jamaican colors were lighting up the interior. The food is also authentic.
I had the Small Oxtail and Curry Goat Combo for $14 ($17 for a large). The Small is actually a hearty portion of food. All entrees are served with rice, vegetables, and plantains. For rice, options include white rice, yellow rice, and rice and beans. Vegetable of the night was cabbage. Unfortunately, only 2 plantain pieces are included. It was odd to receive a plate consisting of 1/3 rice, 1/3 vegetables, and then only TWO pieces of plantains – one of these is not like the others……Anyway, the Oxtail is fantastic. It is made stew-style and has just a hint of spicy to it. Great flavor! The green Curry Goat tastes like lamb and gets spicier and spicier as you eat more and more of it. Mix the rice with the sauces from the meat – you’ll be glad you did! Consider ordering some Coco Bread for $1.50 to sweep up the sauce. I had it nice and hot, with steam still rising out of it. It is starchy like a dinner roll, and has a bit of sweetness to it as well. Overall, my meal was great. However, it appears that none of the meats are boneless, and sometimes the bones are annoyingly small to pick out. I’d also prefer more plantains with my meal, instead of having to order an additional side. Their alcoholic beverages license is also pending, so all of the alcoholic drinks on their menu are currently unavailable.
