Review analysis


anything from POP music  like Amy Winehouse, Pharrell Williams, Robbie Williams to  Reggae – Bob Marley, UB4O to Latin, Motown, Blues, Jazz, Modern, ‘Middle of the Road’ & Classical.

The guys were brilliant, music was excellent, they were very smartly dressed and so pleasant to deal with.

Thank you Sarah Jane for the easy booking and cheerful responses to my endless pre-booking questions, and to Gary for providing perfect music for my father’s birthday.

Lots of our guests commented on what fun it was to have calypso music.

food   location  

We ordered a curry goat roti and a ‘hot double’ which is a Trinidadian street food snack consisting of two fried flat breads filled with channa (chickpeas) and various toppings, in this case crunchy cucumber bits and a really fierce scotch bonnet sauce.

It was hot, the bus, so we headed straight to the pub for a frosty pint before hitting up the second stop, Guyanese roti joint Umana Yana in Herne Hill.

She’s lovely to talk to, she makes incredible roti, she makes hot sauce that I would buy on a regular basis were it available in the shops and she raised no objection to me and my mate swigging from a bottle of Armagnac outside her shop.

Also, the roti was as crap as example number one at Roti Joupa.

It wasn’t a patch on the heat or flavour of Umana Yana’s sauce in any case, the rest of which is residing happily in my fridge, ready for the next time I need to get up extra early…
