  • Visitor Information

This Caribbean cafe is as generous in atmosphere as it is in portion sizes. Dishing up mountains of Jerk Chicken with rice and peas to tired Soho shoppers. In the heart of the West End this little gem comes as a real respite from the chaotic surroundings. Bringing the warmth of Kingston to the chilly streets of London. Hearty Caribbean classics are written up on the board, patties, ackee and saltfish are firm favourites, and of course Jerk City's namesake jerk chicken comes with rice, peas, yams and dumplings. 'Ground provisions' aka root vegetables are served with peppered steak and oxtails arrive braised with butterbeans. Cakes come in three flavours, carrot, banana and coconut and a range of punches are on offer to quench your thirst. The staff are cheerful and the food is excellent value with prices ranging between ?1 and ?9. Eat in or takeaway.
