"If you are looking for food with authentic Jamaican flavor this is the place! Great staff and the owner is a very cool down to earth guy. His staff is also very friendly and they greet guest with Jamaican greetings like “Wha Gwan” & “Everything Irie”. Had the stewed chicken and rice and peas and it was delicious. The jerk chicken is delicious and has the right amount of kick from the jerk sauce. Also had the panang chicken from the Thai menu and it was full of flavor and spice. Affordable prices and good mixed drinks. Definitely a hotspot to check out in Bangkok! Don’t forget to greet the staff with a “Wha Gwan” to see them smile"
