The food was flavorful, it just took a while to be served and that was understandable seeing that it was an eventful evening. I would definitely come again, the curry goat waffles are a must have

Made a reservation reach on time but still had to wait. When we were seated they where a lot of empty tables there. Didn’t like seeing the hostess is croc, workers walking around with there phones. The ambiance was great, drinks was great, food was ok, the vibes of the place was good.

I would recommend solely for the food because it was truly good. The wait time for the food, however, was horribly long. The ambience was ok but there are inconsistencies in the Serengeti theme, such as the giant buddha head. Also, the phone line needs to be properly manned. I called before the day of the reservation and no one answered. My friend called the day of the reservation and no one answered. Might be a tad short staffed for Saturday nights as all the waitresses were very busy so it was difficult to get attention.

The experience was excellent from the time we entered the venue. The greeters efficently confirmed our reservation & directed us to the well appointed waiting area. They advised that at least 80% of our party of 8 needed to be present for us to be seated. I liked that. Our server was pleasant, quick and very accomodating as we decided on what to eat & drink. The food was excellent with attractive plating and adequate portion sizes. I will return & recommend. Well done.

The overall ambience was loveley. The service needs improvement. My group had to wait over an hour for our food. A member of my party was told she couldnot place her order as the kitchen wasnt taking anymore or closed (whatever the story, this was between 10 /11pm) .When my order came it was not hot, I had asked for a particular item be eliminated from my order and that was not done. I put in an order for dessert which never came. Though my experience wasn't the best, it wasn't the worst I have had. I would give you another chance to reedeem yourself.

The ambiance was very calming and in the centre of nature. The Murray's curry was excellent and the side salad was on the sweet side. I would definitely return to try other items on the menu. Service was timely and exceptional.

The food was good as always. Not my first or second time there. I keep coming back for the food and the last time I had no issue. HOWEVER THIS TIME Same issue this time as the first server was too busy. I didn't even get my drinks with my food as the bar was backed up on frozen cocktails. So my drinks came after I was finished eating. Oh and the water was served half way through my meal. JUST FIX THAT CAA THE MURRAY CURRY TIE ME! And I hate wanting something and I can't get it and the server issue is a major thing to keep me away!

Ok so upon parking......... parking attendants were awsome real cool dudes

Hostess was cool also and we had 2 waitresses; one that actually was very friendly and welcoming (wish I remembered her name) and the other was very knowledgable of knowing what is not on the menu #SAD

OK! The so call 8 oz steak when presented was not appealing. First of all  a medium well steak was ordered and we got a half burnt cow smh.

We also ordered the crusted Salmon, it was dry and it need lime or lemon wedge. I love Salmon and that is the worst Salmon I've ever had. The plate was garnished with garlic seasoning/powder mixed into butter (awful). I ordered baked sweet potato and I had nothing (sauce) to have with it.

We also ordered seasoned fries and got regular fries when the waitress was notified that it is regular fries my knowledgable waitress brought it back and said there is no parsley in the kitchen! so that means salt an parsley equals seasoned fries? 🤔 The fries were soggy as well.

The drink menu was also a joke first of all they had no lime, no strawberry and no mint! Come on, this is Jamaica, we grow all these items. Ordered a mango Margarita an got a lime margarita and yet there was no lime 🤔

You should also change the name of whatever you're calling Saltfish Fritters.

I am not sure if it's the event that was taking place there and who was attending that caused our food to be this awful. I am disappointed.

The ambiance was good but the food was poor.

The service was good but needed to be polished as our server had Just started working that evening. He should have been supervised, he did the best he could with minimal training. Dishes ordered - oxtail was tough, steamed fish was not memorable , steamed bammies were tough, curried goat was not bad. Ambience was very good, security Guards in the parking lot were very pleasant and well trained. We will be back

Had a reservation for 11pm which was after our movie and got there only to hear the kitchen closes at 11. There needs to something that says appetizers from 11 pm on wards. Had I known this would have went somewhere else. On top of that, I received stale waffles and wantons with barely any filling. I hated the experience.

The overall experience was good. Nice romantic ambience. I took my boyfriend for a nice evening out and it was exactly what I was looking for in terms of ambiance.
My only complaint was that the food came out cold and as such the protein was tough.
I ordered the jerk platter and every protein on the platter was cold.

The initial interaction with staff members went very well. However, over the course of the evening it dwindled. The food was worth the long wait though. Some consideration should be given to expand the dessert selection. Overall 4/5

The setting of the location was very appealing. Despite me being late for my reservation I appreciate that the staff did not give away my table. I was disappointed tho that I recognized a hint of rudeness and sarcasm by the person who managed the reservations at the front. Our server was very amicable and polite...I believe her name is Onissia. It did take a while for the food to come which was again an area of disappointment. While the drinks were good, the food was quite underwhelming....I am not confident it was prepared for a Jamaican audience (I ordered the bbq chicken with mashed potatoes). Overall, I had high expectations of Chillin' given how it is marketed on social media, unfortunately those expectations were unmet and left me feeling as if I wasted my money. Before driving out that evening I sought the opinion of my friends who were there and most shared a similar opinion...especially related to the taste of the food.
