5 Star Rating Incredible vegan food! Open early to get hot savory food by the pound or a salad bar or order off the menu. Amazing taste, texture, and spice and a wide assortment of items and flavors available from the hot bar. Mushroom and soy based protein options. Bread pudding was also delicious and super moist. Would definitely recommend and hope to go back on a future trip.

5 Star Rating This was my first time dining here and I was impressed from start to finish. I spent 13 years in the restaurant industry so I can be a little critical of restaurants but this place only gets my praise. First thing I noticed was how remarkably clean everything was. Next was how helpful and patient the woman helping us was, she explained what each dish was and gave us recommendations on what was the most popular. The thing that I appreciated most was that this spot is the epitome of Harlem, so if you don’t appreciate the culture and vibe of the neighborhood do us all a favor and find a different spot. I wish them all the success and I can’t wait to go back and share it with my friends.

5 Star Rating I was very skeptical meeting here for lunch, because of the vegetarian menu. But I was happy to discover every dish I sampled to be delicious, even the faux jerked chicken I ordered, with mashed potatoes and plantain. I will definitely be coming back to eat at this place. Oh yeah, the pinapple-banana smoothie was fantastic.

4 Star Rating I went there on May 12, 2024. I picked up some Mother's Day food for my Aunt. I ordered oxtails with okra and white rice. I got my Aunt oxtails with coconut rice, peas, and sweet potatoes. The food had wonderful flavor and you could tell they made their browning sauce because it was a little too sweet for me, that and the fact the plates were too small is the only thing I didn't like. My Aunt enjoyed every bite. Donald was so nice over the phone and when I got there. I would go there again. They get a 🤩 emoji from me. Excuse the photo we started eating then I remember to take a picture.

2 Star Rating I first came across this restaurant’s food at an event I attended. A few of their dishes was a part of the catering. Their food was absolutely delicious I had the yams, fried whitening fish, and collard greens. Let me warn you if their collard greens were SPICY. I don’t do spices. Even many of the people who love spices also stated it was to spicy. I was in the area and decided to order for lunch. I visited the restaurant in October 2023. I placed my order online so it could be ready for pick up when I arrived. I was disappointed to learn the fried whiting fish is only available through their catering menu. I decided to order the stewed chicken, coconut peas and rice, steamed cabbage, yams, macaroni & cheese, cornbread, and lemonade. When I arrived to the restaurant, I noticed it’s not a sit-down restaurant. Seems like you pick up and go. I was greeted by staff told them I was picking up and they let me know my order was ready. I was so eager to dig into my food. I was expecting the Caribbean flavors and was let down and disappointed in my meal. I even shared with my coworker for her opinion. The best thing out of everything I ordered was the yams and lemonade. The chicken was bland and had no flavor. The peas and rice was okay. The cabbage wasn’t cooked and still too crunchy again no seasoning/flavor. The macaroni and cheese wasn’t good. The cornbread was okay, it has pineapple in it. I don’t think I’ll return and if I do it’ll only be for the yams and lemonade. This didn’t taste anything like Caribbean cuisine. The portion of the food was also really small. My total was about $36.00. This location is accessible via public transportation.

2 Star Rating Purchased a stewed chicken roti (non wrapped) earlier from sisters. It’s 8:33pm and I’m now having lunch at work. To my surprise when I opened out the roti it seems like some was missing (see photos). This is not the first time this happened. Can Sisters explain this to me?

5 Star Rating I know some of the workers there on a first name basis. They are sweet and kind and fast. They are not cheap at all with the food and my food always comes hot still. Thank you for serving our Community China King.

5 Star Rating I don’t know if I’m more in love with the Lo-Mein or the prices, but they always sneak in a free cold soda in, which is always nice. Don’t let the lack of reviews fool you, whenever I walk by there’s always a couple people getting their order in. It’s a well kept secret. MaPo bean curd was a-okay. Lo-mein is straight goodness.
