Kaieteur Express II
Kaieteur Express II

In sleepy Hollis Gardens, Jamaica, this Guyanese bakery-cum-restaurant serves Chinese and Indian dishes—which should come as no surprise to those familiar with the South American nation. Soon after the country’s African slaves were freed in the mid-1800s, indentured Chinese and Indian workers were shipped to Guyana to labor on sugar plantations, and they brought their cuisine with them. At Kaieteur, a fiery namesake chicken dish is flavored with Indian spices, and curries are rich and flavorful. Particularly tasty is the duck, stewed on the bone and served with dal puri, a thin bread stuffed with smashed chickpeas.

First of All, this place is like a shit-hole, only nasty things happen there.  I purchase curry chicken, and fry-rich, and when I got home, the food smells like rotten, stale food.  It is as if the food was left out to sit for days, and they he-heat it and server it.  It tasted sour, as if someone squeeze lime or lemon in it.  we call the restaurant, and explain to them, we live only 10 minutes drive from the place, and the man who identify himself as the owner told us that 'we waited too long to eat the food" ---- Seriously? I dont' normally write reviews, but this is beyond disgraceful, and horrible.  

I don't even know what TimeOUt lower their standard to review restaurant like this.

I later learn that the restaurant pays TimeOUT to do the listing, so they do it.   But SHAME on TimeOUt to be associated with this restaurant.


I have spoken with NYC Dept of health, and I have filed a complain.  Mark my works --- this place is going out of business soon.....arrogant, shameful behavior from a pig that call himself the 'owner' when in-fact he is sell stale, spoiled food ----

Needs to chage the cook. I order some fried rice and polurie. It was so embarrassing - the polurie was so hard even though I heat it up. Fried Rice was dried and tasteless. Would never order from you guys again. Sonia
