amazing food anyone who says it’s small portions doesn’t understand the price of product it’s a staple in this area let alone the region of its too expensive you don’t want good quality there is a reason it’s been around for so long .

I just got a take out order from these guys last week and it was massive I even went to the restaurant and thanked the owner a lot paid 71.00 and i got over a 100 bucks in food i was happy with my delivery

Where to park

In the crabby Joe's parking lot

I've heard a lot of great things about this place, but I personally don't get it. The food is fairly good. I can't say that I loved any of the 4 dishes i've tried there on multiple occasions. Everything is just OK. The restaurant decor/atmosphere is average to below-average and service is also just OK. The prices are certainly on the high side given these factors. Nothing is great about this place aside from the downtown location.

Excellent and authentic taste! Got the $12.59 small meal that comes with rice + peas covered with choice of gravy, 1 meat (jerk chicken) and 1 side (beef soup of the day). Definitely a great place to go to to satisfy your Carribean cravings. The restaurant is a bit pricier compared to others however the quality makes it justified.

This place has really gone downhill, since the new owner has taken over. The food is terrible. I really need to find a better Caribbean Restaurant.

Amazing as usual. The rotis are delicious and good sized portion. Normally, I get chicken, but they were out. So I tried beef and it was delicious! Plus great service with a smile, even when busy! Ask for their Scotch bonnet sauce for an extra level of flavour!

Horrible dry and oily roti lets be real with the service it sucks. If you want dry and soggy food come to this place. Lady didn't even give me napkins lol how can somebody eat curry chicken roti with no napkins unless she thought i was giving it to my dog. Actually my dog doesn't even deserve this food. Save your money people...

Yard Style Breakfast was delicious. Ackee was sopped up with our fried dumplings. The queen had tea with condensed milk and a side of plantains. One note for coffee lovers ... They only have instant. No problem - They let me bring in a coffee from Coffee Culture down the street!

Excellent Food!!!I use to have to wait to enjoy my favorite dish Chicken Curry until Multi Cultural at Victoria Park in the summer each year. That was until I found this gem of a place. Everytime I go there I order the same thing large meal of Chicken curry and trust me it's large!!! It usually lasts me two meals. You get what you pay for and that's delicious Caribbean food. I love being able to enjoy my favorite dish any time of the year. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone who enjoys Caribbean Cuisine. Trust me you won't be disappointed in the food or the service that's provided to you. This Restaurant definitely deserves 5 stars. Thanks for sharing your dishes with the kitchener area!!!!

Do not get delivery from here. I used to love this place and would come all the time to get 1/2 a pound of curried goat. Now that covid has taken over, I decided to order delivery from them. The portion was so small and it was all bones, there ended up being only 4-5 small pieces of goat left after I took out all the bones. I'm still hungry after I just ate my food. I would not recommend getting delivery from them.

I was looking for a Jamaican restaurant and was referred to this one. The food was tasty and delicious! Tasted very much like back home. The portion size was also adequate. While the prices are a tad bit expensive, It was well worth it!

Prices are too high for the portions you get. Staff seem miserable and often just stand looking at you before taking your order, and when they finally do, they move at "island speed" which is too slow. Used to be great, but I won't be back as there are better options in the area.

Authentic Caribbean cuisine at reasonable prices. For those who have to eat heartily away from home for cheap, this place can't be beat. Authentic jerk and oxtail lunches and dinner with all the fixings. For those needing their fave Jamaican roti, look no further.

Pretty good food here in a cafeteria setting. I had the curry goat and the wife had the ox tail. My wife said 4 stars because they aren’t true to its roots - its not spicy. You can get scotch bonnet hot sauce for $.50 by the counter. I can recommend.

Can I give this place 6 stars out of 5? I'm in the restaurant business; have been my whole life. This place is definitively THE BEST place for Caribbean food I've ever experienced. Flavourful, generous portions, great selection, wonderful staff (Leona, I think, is the nicest person alive!). Highly, highly, highly recommend! Oh, and let me add, I'm from Trinidad. I know Caribbean cuisine!

I had Rainbow Caribbean Cuisine for the first time a few days ago and I am in LOVE. It was so delicious. I had the jerk chicken with rice and it was exactly how I imagined it - so full of flavour and not too hot but definitely had some kick to it! You get a lot of food for a really good price. Can't wait to try it again!

This was my 1st visit in awhile. I believe these are new owners. I had the curried chicken roti with a side of rice and peas and a piece of plantain. Roti was very great, albeit a touch salty for my taste. Rice and peas were good also. What's not to say about the plantain, delicious.  The young lady behind the counter was very friendly and amazing. There was a slight disturbance with someone in the restaurant but she handled it greatly with a friendly manner. Will gladly return again for my Caribbean fix.

I lived with Jamaicans for a few years. I know my Carribean food quite well. I gave this 3 stars because of the plate I had. I bought the jerk chicken. I was shocked when there was a BBQ sauce or the jerk sauce poured on top. That's not how it's done. Chicken was dry and I didn't like the sauce of the coleslaw. I am also used to cabbage and carrots instead of coleslaw. The one woman serving the food was hard to hear and looked really unwelcoming. However the cashier was the complete opposite and very nice to talk to.

Excellent food, every time! I have had a couple dishes from this fantastic little gem located in downtown Kitchener. I would highly recommend the fried chicken and the curried chicken. Both so freaking good. The prices are great for the portion you get! They use the perfect combination of spices every single time, I cannot get enough of this place and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to try Caribbean food in the city.

My family and i always go to this restaurant even when we move to London we would rrove back for the food when James was alive , great man and great food . My daughter sometimes ask to go back there for food i was not eager to go because i am a jamaican and i am used to good food, and i have great exprience at this place with the pass owner .but we went back and it was not hood . The soup did not have food and the meat you could hardle find it . The jerk chicken did not taste like jerk chicken and the little peaces of plantain they put on your plate . We order one pound of fried plantain it was not one pound and then there was no salad , salad always come with james food and the little bit of meat they put on your plate . I will never go back to this place . God rest your soal james great man great food .

Good variety of Caribbean dishes and beverages. The food was good and the service was friendly and even chatted with some customers. The only minor complaint I would give is that the plates are a bit pricey. Tip: the rice taste great with some oxtail gravy on it.

I usually come and get a soup and a spicy beef patty. Soups are LEGIT. I've had each day of the week soup , and Mondays beef soup is my favorite. They are all delicious though and loaded with veggies and goodness. Patties are tasty. 6 bucks lunch can't go wrong.
