Situated on a corner spot in Granville Arcade, Fish, Wings & Tings is a great place to check out some lesser-known Caribbean treats, beyond the Jamaican norm. Despite its short, to-the-point menu, this laid-back café does a good job of persuading you to indulge in a little more adventurousness in the Caribbean culinary department.

Trinidadian chef Brian Danclair might suggest changing your beer order from Red Stripe (Jamaican) to Carib (Trini), for instance. Likewise, the light, crumbly roti breads that come packed with a mix of potato, chickpea, pumpkin and prawn, or goat curry stew, might convince you that jerk chicken is not always the answer. Try, instead, shark and bake: small fillets of shark in a fried dough roll with spicy own-made condiments. Starters include deliciously crisp cod-fish fritters and king prawns in a Red Stripe tempura with own-made sauces.

Yes, there’s also jerk chicken, and it’s tender and moist, served in a sweet-sour tamarind sauce with rice and coleslaw, but it’s the Trini specialities that will keep us coming back – especially as a new menu is promised following a recent refurbishment.

The place was packed in the sunshine on Sunday.  Food is excellent.  Crispy and tasty cod balls.  Goat Curry plate entirely cleaned by my companion and really scrumptious coconut prawn curry rotis washed down with a fiery homemade ginger beer and rum.  Marvellous value, relaxed atmosphere and it comes out of a tiny kitchen.

Yes, the food is very tasty but when you only have 6 different mains on offer, having only 3 available is not really good enough. They didn't have any rotis to make the wraps - they sell them at the market and in Tescos just up Acre lane, how hard is it to get a supply in? What made this more frustrating was that we were only told this after we had been there for 10-15 minutes and had already chosen what we wanted. Even though there were maybe only 8 other diners at the restaurant it took almost an hour for our food to come out and even then our starter never turned up. It still hadn't arrived when we finished our mains so we got the bill and left. The food was decent, great jerk chicken, tasty curry and good coleslaw and curry sauce to go with it but waiting that length of time in this sort of establishment is really not good enough. I could have gone to the market, picked up the ingredients and made my own jerk chicken from scratch and it would have been quicker than this.

The BEST Caribbean food I have ever eaten. Such a fabulous place visited a Sunday back over a month ago and have been for Sunday late lunch practically every week since. Always have a Rum & Ting (or 5).Owner & service lovely & friendly always acknowledges you. The codfish fritters are absolutely amazing and the juicy tempura prawns to start! I tend to go for the coconut prawn curry which is absolutely amazing or the goat curry. The coleslaw is the magic touch to the dishes! Tend to spend a lot longer than expected especially in the nice weather just people watching all coming out of Brixton Village and mingling on the arcade courtyard! Really lovely spot definitely worth a visit
