Tried this place through groupon and absolutely loved it. You get large portions for the price and the food was great. It hit the spot. Service was excellent and I really enjoyed the cozy, intimate atmosphere. A definite recommend.

The food is always good. Freda is always there and wants to make sure you are sure that you are fed well and have something left for your next adventure in NYC! You will also leave with a story.

The food was ok - at best. Yams were right out of the can and overly sweet. Plantains were soggy with oil. Will not return. There are many places in the city that are worth going to for great island food. This is not one of them. Don't waste your time or money.

What a find. I have tried other carribbean restaurants but this is the first time for this one. There is no comparison between thos one and the others. It is trinidadian/grenadian based cooking and the best of all. We had a party of 10 and all regardless of their choice of entree raved about the taste and portions. Since it was a Sunday they didnt have the full range of deserts but it didnt matter because most couldnt eat more or took the desert home.The setting is much prettier than in the fotos online and there is a large flat screen tv and ipod music if you ask. It is light and airy and clean and bright with a wall to wall front window that lets alot of light in. It is BYOB. The management is cordial and all entrees and rotis are top of their class. Try it, You will savor it. You will return and so will we.

I am a fan of any type Island food and I have to say Freda's is the best I have had in NYC. The jerk salmon,chicken and shrimp are nice and spicy without being impossible to eat. The roti's we always get to share because nobody can eat a whole one. In terms of the sides- must have the rice and peas which come with everything....but I love the plantains and mac and cheese....find the sweet potatoes a little too sweet - I find myself going back to that menu to order in time and time again. Going to have them cater my next party!

The place is small but it is one of the best soul food restaurants in Harlem. The portions are huge and the food is delicious!!

The jerk chicken was delicious and tender, the greens and the candied yams were a great addition to the chicken. The curried chicken roti was also amazing. Such great quality food for a great price. My only complaint was that the chicken in the roti was not boneless. Definitely worth the hike!
