Brooklyn >Brawta Mini Cafe Inc
“The food is authentic Jamacian and delicious; you can tell it is cooked with love!”
“You can get the same quality at a better price at your favorite caribean restaurant.”
“Nice food, nice people, and the worst sense of timing ever.”
“The food was tasty but the portions sizes are tiny.”
so happy.... they've closed. The food was good but it was waaaay expensive, especially for the amount they give you. I ordered curry shrimp once and got like 3 1/2 shrimp. But being of Jamaican-descent, and a lover of the food, I wanted to give them another chance. Unfortunately, they also had THE WORST service I've ever experienced. Like another reviewer here, I was told that my order would be delivered within a certain amount of time. Almost 2 hours later, I called and got this ice princess on the other end of the phone who could've cared less. Needless to say, I cancelled my order and never ordered from them again. Until Kingston 12 opens on 5th Ave. (Park Slope), I'll gladly satisfy my cravings at Christie's on Flatbush or one of those divinely delicious dives 'round Flatbush and Church Ave.
Ok. The food was tasty but the portions sizes are tiny. It was also pricey. You can get the same quality at a better price at your favorite caribean restaurant.
wasn't impressed. This place is horrendous compared to the place Jamaican place I go to all the time where I work in Downtown Brooklyn (Ammette Cafe). The chicken tasted like turkey and just wasn't good jerk at all. The rice and peas was bland. The guys there are really laid back...so laid back that they don't answer the phone half the time...and are pretty rude when they do answer. I don't recommend this place at all.
Don't do delivery. Nice food, nice people, and the worst sense of timing ever. I know they're small and slow, but this is ridiculous. We ordered, he told me it would be maybe 40 minutes, and then they arrived an hour and 40 minutes later. When I called to check in, the guy acted annoyed at me, like, "we're BUSY" but... maybe a few bucks off or an apology is in order? Won't be buying from them again. And oh, by the way, the credit card machine has been broken for at least a month. The other Brawta in Boerum Hill is 100% more organized and professional than this place and possibly more delicious too.
Such a Delight!. Warm and gracious staff will pack up a bit of the carribean for you to take home. The food is authentic Jamacian and delicious; you can tell it is cooked with love! For about 35 dollars two of you can have a feast with leftovers.
At this tiny, colorful joint, you'll find spicy Jamaican food--from ackee to oxtail--for picking up or delivery..
With its narrow, wood counter seating three people max and but one chair accompanying the sole metal table, this Carribean mini-cafe is first and foremost about takeout. Customers line up in the white-washed brick and sunflower-yellow interior to order jerk chicken, curried goat or tiger shrimp to go. Meatless variations on island classics (like curried tofu, vegetarian stew and rasta pasta) make this a welcome culinary option for vegans as well.
