I am have been here a few times. I have been with different friends and we have all loved the food and service. The service is great. I have been there and had great conversation with the owner and her son or nephew (cannot remember now) who was visiting on one of my jaunts there. The "special" sorrel was delish and so was my curry shrimp. Did not mind the wait for my meal as it is cooked to order. If you want reheated food with some supermarket brand bottle sauce thrown over it to make it appear freshly cooked, this is not the place for you. As for the owner not giving good service to her fellow Jamaicans, poppycock! I am Jamaican and have only been there with Jamaicans and we have great service and conversation everytime. Will continue to go back with any of my fellow foodie friends regardless of their nationality. Great place, great food, great service!!!

The food taste like the chef loves what they are doing. It reminds me of a mother in the kitchen cooking for the family with love. I've been to the restaurant and its a little small so I had my food delivered. The delivery was very quick and the food was nice and fresh and hot My husband and I loved it!

It had cozy homy feel. While it was a little small it made me feel at home .The food was delish! The bread pudding is great and the service was nice . I highly reccomend the Calypso strimp .My overall expierience was excellent!

I love the Islands.I love the oxtails they make me want to cry they are so good. I also can't resist the garlic shrimp..OMG! I love when the two sisters are there cooking together..Those women can cook. It should be against the law to cook such good carribean meals.

After swimming all day in the hot NY sun, I needed to replenish my body. So I did a google search and found Islands, which happened to be rated 4 stars and very close to my location. One of the reviews stated that the meat falls right off of the bone and let me tell you - it surely does! I am so glad I decided on this gem of a restaurant, while very small, Islands is definitely worth the trip to Brooklyn. & wouldn't you know it while I was there ordering my Oxtails, ABCTv called them to do a segment! Islands is on the map and a must-eat for me! I give this restaurant 4*'s, not because anything was wrong but because no one is perfect - & sadly I must say they didn't have the jerk chicken wings that I was dying to try because I know without a doubt they were going to melt in my mouth after setting it on fire!! Try Islands - you will not be disappointed.
