I saw VERY great reviews and decided to dine here as a continued birthday celebration and also to have a little fun before the concert at the Barclay Center. I arrived 15 minutes early and was told I could not be seated until the scheduled reservation time. There were only two tables being occupied at this time. The hostess said we could sit at the bar and she would get us when the time came. We sat at the bar for 14 minutes before the bartender gave us water. There was no one else at the bar. The hostess did not come to us, we had to go to her. Once seated, we waited at our table for 15 minutes where no one came. We watched the hostess, bartender, manager/owner, as well as waiters and waitresses play on their phones. I asked one of the employees walking by if there was a server for our table and he said no. I then went to the hostess to ask her if there was a server for our table and she said she would send someone. I placed an order for a daiquiri. It was extremely watery, but was supposed to be a frozen drink. The appetizers took over 30 minutes to come out. The wings were desert dry and the dumplings had a half teaspoon of filling. Our waitress didn’t come back for an hour to check on us. When she did, my cousin ordered soup and I ordered a Coca-Cola. 20 minutes later the soup came out, 30 minutes later I got the Coca-Cola. I forgot I ordered it. I expected so much more from what I saw online, but I was disappointed. Oh, I almost forgot, I ordered the oxtails to go, and I swear there was no meat on the bones. I got a box full of bones.

As my first time experiencing the place, I have to say that I was pleased with the restaurant. The food was delicious (not to mention the food that my friends had looked very good as well) and the drinks were on point.

The drinks was really Extremely Good , Music , the Sushi roll tasty … Now The Furniture especially them Tables y’all played y’all self lovely . The Garden light Way too bright and and shining in your face - not to much privacy. First time and I wasn’t to impressed the decor was it . I think I would order out the dining in there wasn’t it for me (waitress had an attitude) when ask to bill our dinner to card on file . She wasn’t pleasant when giving an explanation why it couldn’t be done. I wrap up our food to go . After it took so long to come . Y’all never sang happy birthday to husband as I requested when we made reservations ( not to mention we came to the front and ask about it ) and still never got it .

Arrived at 830pm for our 9pm reservation was not greeted by the host for approx 2mins had to get her attention while she laughed and giggled with the table next to her. She then told us that we couldn't be seat until 9pm although there were empty tables so we sat at the bar. Had to alert the host at 9pm to be seated, she then sat us at the same table that was empty when we walked in. Had to track down a server to take care of us after waiting 20mins. Guests that were seated after us got served first. Waited 90 mins for our food, drinks and even water. After waiting so long for our food they bought out the wrong order. Service and food was horrible! I would not recommend this place to anyone. I will not be dining with them again.
You need better management and staff asap!

It was our anniversary and literally an hour before I made the reservation. Within half an hour we had our drinks and appetizers. The Bao Buns with berry jerk short ribs are to die for. The fish cakes were so tasty and had chunks of cod in them so it didn’t taste or seem too doughy. The drinks were yum and strong. I had a Lychee Pina Colada with Henny and my fiancé had a passion fruit margarita. I just wish we would’ve gotten there earlier to enjoy the ambiance a bit longer.

Disappointing!!! I waited 32 minutes at a table before actually seeing a server. It took 44 minutes before I received my drink. That bill came at God speed though. I went there in particular for one of my Caribbean favorite dishes. Unfortunately I was not impressed and my cuisine lacked flavoring. My server was very nice though; when she finally appeared. Tic-Tok really tricked me into coming here. If you are a extreme fan of Caribbean flavors & favorites, maybe here isn’t wise for you.🤷🏾‍♂️

Food was not good. Sushi was mushy and falling apart. Oxtail didn’t taste good. Drinks tasted superrr sweet and weird for some reason. The waiter was great, it was just the food, not worth it.

While the food was very good the service could use some help. It took awhile for our server to even acknowledge us. They also weren’t too engaging, i don’t even think my server said their name. Other than that i would revisit because overall it was a good time.

They seemed quite busy and didn’t have enough staff. The wait for everything was longer than expected. However, it was all worth the wait once we got our food and drinks!

Made reservations for brunch to celebrate my mother’s bday, boy was this a treat!! We were welcomed with a friendly hostess who checked for vaccination status with ID confirmation and were seated immediately. We ordered drinks which were STRONG, but good - Hennycolada and Rum Punch. Appetizers were fish cakes which had a nice kicked followed by lunch - shrimp and grits and teriyaki salmon. Everything was delicious. We ended our meal with carrot cake for my mom - I do wish they would have sang HBD.

Ambiance was great, service was amazing and the playlist I need.

Thanks Czen’s !

This is my third time dining here, and my main issue is the service is too slow. we had brunch for 5 people that lasted 3.5 hours, the wait between service was too long.
when our main dishes finally came out they were room temperature or cold.
We ordered desert as soon as our main dishes came out, but had to wait almost 1 hour for desert. Then another 45 minutes for our check. I typically do not like to be rushed when dining out, but this pace is too slow.
1 plus is the presentation of the food is great.

Czen was amazing. The oxtail dumplings are to die for. The oxtail meal absolutely outstanding and don't get me started on the jerk chicken. It is absolutely authentic jerk chicken, it has a great kick to it and was simply amazing. The vegetables were so buttery and garlicy I fell in love and wish I could have more lol. The drinks strong and amazing, the cheesecake just everything 10/10.
