Food was really good! Happy they had vegetarian options. It was a little cold inside and took a bit of time but it’s worth it.

We went on a Sunday early....so it was quiet for dinner. The curry shrimp is the best I've had in years... Better than my grandma's and that is saying something

A short walk from the sports arena for Seattle University, this small restaurant is authentic Jamaican all the way, from the interior (don't be put off, it is not upscale) to the servers and finally the food. The ackee with saltfish is a Jamaican favorite, and my dish was quite good, even though I had never heard of the ingredients! Others sampled the curry dishes which they also enjoyed. A short list of beers and wine was available. It appeared everyone else in the place had been there many times. If you are in the mood for some Caribbean food and in the area, check it out.

Felt like we were back in Jamaica when we walked in. Cozy with an island vibe! The festival was amazing. We really enjoyed the curried goat and rice and peas! Loved to dining here during our stay in Seattle.

We went here without a reservation for half of the party and the other half with. When we arrived it was very slow. Two more parties came after us and it got busy. Only two waiters. On a Saturday I would think a little differently. We waited well over 40 minutes of an hour for food. Though it was great, I didn't want to wait that long.

The food was delicious, we were a party of 4 and all ordered something different. All of the food was flavorful. The spices used were very distinct in each dish. The chicken wings were so good that I am ready to go back soon. Our server was attentive and prompt.

I had seen this restaurant as an invite on Facebook. Finally tried it out. The exterior is being upgraded and looks deceiving of the caliber of the restaurant. The interior was very spacious and definitely reminded me of the Caribbean. Great food and great service. I will definitely go again.

The hostess/owner was delightful. The food did taste like the Caribbean. We ordered different drinks, though they tasted the same. Maybe we will order beer next time. The restaurant feels like it used to be a Mexican restaurant. Except with Bob Marley posters up. The decor and lighting definitely needs some work. But if good food and an attentive staff is more important to you, you won't be disappointed.

We like the food we had but the location isn't so convenient for us. If we are in the neighborhood in the future, we may stop by but we don't usually around Jefferson..
