If you want to waste money and time come to Brawta!!! The service was horrible, the waitress was very NASTY. She rolled her eyes, stomped her feet and was just flat out nasty. I didn't know who was acting worst her or my 3 year old son!!!! there was nothing for my son to eat other than the Mac & Cheese. I asked for chicken wing with out the spicy sauce for him, our waitress took it upon herself to add sauce to the wings. I think you should ask if you would like sauce rather than just adding it. Needless to say that my son never ate the wings yet I paid for them to keep the peace. After waiting the 25 minute wait time that they tell you about for seafood, my fush was DRY and had NO flavor.

The owner was "helping" she did take out orders but when there were no take out orders she did nothing!!! We were a party of 15 and she never asked us if we needed anything or how was the food or service.

What I will say is that their prices aren't bad, but for what you get it is the WORST!!!

This neighborhood place has great curried goat, but my friend who I went with told me they sometimes run out if you don't get there early enough (it's mighty good, but eat slow and watch out for little slivers of bone). They don't skimp on the rice and peas, and there are plenty of red beans in it. I was disappointed to find they were closed over Christmas and New Years when I had a taste for Jamaican food. The food is spicy enough and the friendly servers will take the time to explain what all the specialties are. The interior is a little cramped, but the charm of the place makes up for it.

We went to this place on Mother's Day and it was the worst experience ever. The service was slow and to top it iff one of the waitresses was wearing a sleveless shirt and you could see a fist full of underarm hair showing.....can you say YUK!!!!

Secondly, the food was was not worth the price. When the food finally came they forgot some of the side items and the lettuce in the salad was brown. The meal was flavorless and needless to say we all left there hungry.

I would not go back there if you paid me.......check out Sugarcane instead. The atmosphere is much better and the food is excellent!!!

The food was late, cold and average. Don\'t waste your money. The service was also terrible.

I really enjoyed my visit. I went on a Sunday night and it was a full house but we were seated within minutes. This is definitely a place to eat if your not in a rush. For the other comments about the long wait time for the food, it clearly states on the menu that there is at least a 20 minute wait for ALL seafood orders. At least you know your getting it fresh. I would definitely recommend this as layed back, not snooty at all.

Pros: great food, Inexpensive, beautiful astomospher

Cons: no liquor

Have been going to Brawta since it was a small take out shop with three tables. The food is consistently good. Excellent curry, roti, escovitch and curry chicken patties. And the ginger beer and other drinks are mostly homemade and fiery.

Pros: Shrimp curry, Roti, Ginger beer

The jerk shrimp, brown stew red snapper, roti, chicken I could go on and on. I haven't tried a dish on the menu I didn't like.
Great atmosphere, great service they make you feel like a regular even on your first visit (which definately won't be your last).
The only down side is they don't sell alcohol but you can always bring your own bottle of wine (or beer) and they'll supply the opener and glasses. There's a cool bar next door (great people there too) if you forget to BYOB.

I can't stop thinking about the red snapper brown stew I had at Bratwa this weekend. Absolutely fantastic. The place isn't rock-bottom cheap, but the BYOB policy lets you save a bundle on wine.

Pros: Great food, Only one bathroom, Small

Took my rents out for dinner November of last year (2002). Cost of the meal plus a drink each? a cool 100.
Not bad if you make 50K per annum. If you're a struggling-whatever like I am, that sets you back to ramen and cereal for the next three weeks.

This place has the best authentic Jamaican food I have tasted in all of New York> I have dined here several times and refute the other user's review, which labeled the place burgeios. I always heave a great dining experience. The ambience is great for a quick bite to eat w/ friends or your lover. My favorite dish is the pineapple chicken. I also recommed the freshly made juices like the ginger blend and breat/potato pudding for dessert. The colorful decor is inviting and cool and urban chic. This place is a real treat! The only drawback is the service can be a bit slow if you do take-ou, but the dine-in service is satisfactory.

We have been to Brawata on a few occasion, after reading some of these reviews I will definitely have to check our bill next time. The food is good, warning, don't order anything seafood related if you don't have all day to wait. The women who are the waitresses, tend to be distracted and they wear very high heel, I do not know if that is what is keeping them from moving at a faster pace. The tables are definitely rocky. Overall not bad, a bit pricey.

Editorial from

Whether you order Big Tings, Sweet Tings or Little Tings, as the menu cutely groups dishes, everything is fresh and tasty. Try the curried goat or coconut shrimp, oxtail with lima beans, jerk chicken, buttered tiger shrimp, freshly sliced…
