First time back since they opened over a year ago and was glad I gave it another try. Curry goat is a favorite of mine so I was delighted to sample some. Overall flavor and texture was great. Great quality all around in a very laid back setting.
Great food all made from scratch, HUGE portions, and super friendly employees!!
The food is authentic and amazing the chef is from St. Thomas Virgin Islands and is a very nice man. He puts love into all of his food. We had the oxtails, curry chicken, empanadas, and johnny cake along with accompaniments. We also had the dessert which included key lime pie and mango cheesecake. It was our one year anniversary and my love and I really enjoyed ourselves.
We've been here twice (so far!) and both times the food has been amazing! So far we've tried the jerk chicken, jerk ribs, jerk shrimp & grits, fried plantains, grilled corn, and a couple items on the kid's menu. All is cooked to perfection and the chef is warm and welcoming, willing to come chat with you if you have questions. My only suggestion is to add some of the Caribbean items to the kid's menu to expose the little ones to the awesomeness of the full menu.
Delicious tacos, especially the shrimp taco! The roasted corn was amazing too! Excellent service and food was super fresh! Definitely worth trying and we will return!
My friend came here to visit from Hawaii she wanted to try something different. I’ve had this place a couple of times so suggested it. We ordered so much and I must say EVERYTHING was AMAZING!! Ox tail with beans and rice, empanadas, roasted corn, jerk chicken, and ox tail tacos all were SO FREAKING AMAZING! It was like the next was better than the last!
Food is some of the best island style food I’ve tried. Friendly staff as well.
The best food I have experienced in this area. Reasonably priced, great portion sizes, food comes out quickly and the staff is very nice.
The chef is very friendly and skilled. Will defenetly frequent this location.
Dined at this restaurant yesterday with my hubby. Fantastic service and delicious meal. WOW!! Will definitely return and recommend.
Good food, great value. Large portions on the dinners so you'll have leftovers. The jerk chicken was perfectly cooked and seasoned wonderfully. Would definitely return again
Food and customer service is great. There’s only one or two people working at a time so expect a little wait, but it’s definitely worth it! Great size portions as well.
Great jewel in Avalon Park! Fun menu, great flavors! VERY VERY reasonable prices and huge portions. You can work your way through the menu without breaking the bank. There are many items I am looking forward to trying! Go go go!. I the plaza with Walmart supermarket on Avalon Blvd.
Delicious food. Our food was served promptly and the chef himself went to check on us later.
Also everybody there is so nice.
This was our first time eating here and we will definitely be back! My mom had the tropical chicken with the roasted corn and mac & cheese and I had the blackened grouper with plantains and a garden salad. Both entrees were delicious and the sides were plentiful and also tasted great. Would highly recommend this restaurant!
We came here after finding a Groupon, and so glad we did! The menu is limited but everything is so fresh and delicious. The salads tasted like they were just cut ... Not like some places that prep them and put them in the chiller. The jerk chicken was so juicy and seasoned really well! On top of that, the service was friendly and personable. We will definitely be back and will certainly tell others to check it out.
Just ate at Island Thyme for the 1st time! We picked the order up to go. We will definitely be back. Food was delicious! We had BBQ ribs, blackened fish, and Jerk chicken. Plantains, mac n cheese, collard greens, and rice and beans! Everyone down to the 5 yr old ate every bite ????
Been here twice and had great food both times. Jerk chicken was moist and had great flavor. Plantains were amazing. Even the mac n cheese... yeah mac n cheese was fantastic. Go try it, you'll go back again.
Best food ever! Please do yourself a favor and come by and/or delivery. I have done both a few times, the food is always "FANTASTIC" hot and good all the way down to your toes. You will be back again and again! Don't miss out on such fantastic food you will fill you are in the Caribbean for sure....
The best caribbean I have had in a long time! I was very impressed and so was my wife and kids! Not very many places please the whole family but Island Thyme Caribbean has done it. We will certainly be coming back! The service was fast! Food was fantastic! Everyone we spoke to was great! We would highly recommend you at least try this restaurant. It’s become one of our favorites!
Amazing!!! Food taste amazing. Clean and inviting dining area. Friendly service. Highly recommend the Island Seafood Chowder!
5/5 Stars easily!!...We tried the coconut shrimp tacos, beef tacos, plantains, corn on the cob, and beef empanadas and all exceeded our expectations for the price we paid....I don't like eating meat off the bone so the ox tail, ribs, and jerk chicken were not an option for me but if you are into those flavors I'm sure it's good coming from this place!! They do have military discount.
What a delicious lunch we had at Island Thyme today! I ordered two beef tacos and they were delicious. Each taco was filled with perfectly seasoned beef, rice, beans, amd sweet plantains. My husband and daughter ordered the empanadas which were delicious as well and a great size. Our meal was served quickly and delivered to the table with a smile.
I am writing this review on behalf of myself and my 78yr old Caribbean mom from Jamaica that is hard to please with food. Especially, Caribbean food..Either it is not well seasoned or the food "is so tough that if you bite down it may break a tooth..." But Island Thyme is a winner, A+ with my mom and myself...She already gave me the special ingredients that should be used in Johnny Cakes...And the Chef used that special ingredient...another A+....Nice size, yummy and soft (how it should be). Since I read about the reviews on the jerk chicken (prior to my order), I had to try it myself. I agree with the reviews...The Jerk chicken is well seasoned and since I do not like spicy food, it was perfect. What I do like is that the chef gives you the option to order it spicier if you prefer (another THUMBS UP). The blackened grouper was so delicious and well seasoned with a touch of minced pineapples to finish off the platter. I can go on and on, but I would recommend the reader to try it for yourself. You would not regret it! I look forward to ordering from this restaurant in a few days. Money well spent for lunch!
I had lunch here yesterday, and was super impressed by the nice island atmosphere. Nice reggae music playing at proper level in the back ground. I had the jerk chicken. It was very juicy and perfectly seasoned. Black beans and rice were top notch as well. Highly recommend!
I have been here a few times. The food is good and flavorful. I have tried the jerk chicken, curry chicken, fries and rice & beans. Would like to try other dishes. It's never crowded when I go and workers are friendly. The owner even comes out to say hello. I just wish the prices were $1 lower. Especially the fountain drinks. Should be included the meal. Not an additional $3.
