I must say that this restaurant got us hooked from the very first time. The decor is simple, and is good that way. You almost feel like you've set foot in the Caribbean.
Before eating, I ordered a ginger beer, brewed on-site by the owner. My wife ordered a sorel, a very refreshing beverage with a strong clove taste, also brewed on-site. The ginger beer was remarquably good. I even ordered somme to take out. I strongly recommend it!
The food was very tasty and well cooked. The shrimp creole my wife had were delicious, still tender. My lamb was extremely hot, since I ordered it that way. On the side of my plate, I had a spoonful of homemade mango chutney, which was also very good.
I told the owner his ginger beer was really good. He chatted with us for some time. He is very kind and caters to your food desires.
If you like Caribbean-style food, you will enjoy Caribbean Flavours for sure!
Simple decor, great food (especially the roti), vegan friendly, friendly staff, and good prices. It has the feel of a 'mom & pop' place, aqnd it's not uncommon to see the owner/chef walking around chatting with the customers. I always find the temperature of the room is not right, though.. either too hot or too cold.
