This is basically good Caribbean street cart food at a higher price point. Nothing disappointing and nothing special. I have no idea how their weekend delivery service is, as they never answer the phone. The workers at the restaurant are extremely pleasant and warm. Most of the good reviews are, however, highly overrated. That's not a reason to stay away, but you can find better Caribbean food for lower cost if you are willing to go farther afield in Manhattan.

A friend and I were waited on by the owner who was looking very dapper in his tailored grey suit and bright friendly smile. He was extremely kind. I think anything you'd pick from the menu is going to be a winner. I had the goat simmered in Creole sauce. My friend had the snapper. We both agreed the plates were excellent. Plenty of food for a great price. It's rare to find a BYOB place too which adds to the cozy feel of making it your own experience. This place is welcoming and a must try!

I went here during the Catholic religious week of Lent. I ate here with my girlfriend as we attempted to find a Haitain restaurant in Manhattan as we live on LI. We frequent NYC and also party at SOB's. We figured well Haitian ppl (such as ourselves) are everywhere lets find a dinner spot. We arrived to find a cute store front restaurant with authentic Haitian art and music to complete. I ordered the shrimp creole and my girlfriend had the lambi....WOY! (Haitian term for HEYYY) The food...the sauce DELICIOUS!!! The host/server was respectful and always smiling and we even met with the owner.....MAUDE we loved you! She was dressed very accordingly as a business owner of a restaurant and also VERY gracious! Although its abyob I don't mind bringing along my favorite bottle of Moscato to end my lovely dinner evening at this great HAITIAN restaurant! I am a PROUD Haitian American...very savvy and supportive...I emplore my own ppl and all other ppl to visit KRIK KRAK!

Our two small-bite appetizers came with a very spicy hot sauce, a thin broth-like liquid with chunks of hot peppers and the chili seeds right in there for maximum heat. Both appetizers were deep fried without breading, creating two different textures of the same food on the inside - soft - and outside - crispy. Petite Boulettes De Viande (left side of appetizer plate) - simple mini-meatballs with a small onion chunk had no spiciness of its own. Akra De Malanga - made of the tropical, starchy malanga plant (that I was unfamiliar with), small chunks of chili and other spices. The inside malanga had a flaky, almost fish-like texture.

The owners are nearly always present at this wonderful gem of a restaurant. They are friendly & pour love into the wonderful food they serve. They have a great BYOB policy & also have wonderful passion fruit & lime juice that they make (yum!). This is also one of the few restaurants in NYC that serves a salad as a course after your app & before your dinner. Don't forget to try Le Bon BonBon for dessert & get the wonderful sauce with it - you will be enchanted!

My girlfriend and I went to Krik Krak last Saturday afternoon and it was a pleasent surprise. I had the best tassot ever! and my girl loved the shrimp. Pretty small and intimate spot...order appetizers because you're gonna have to wait a while for your food. It's worth the wait.
