Everyone was telling me Da Real Ting is the spot to get Jamaican food. So I called in December 2019 to get the prices for my favorite dish rice and peas/ oxtails they said two prices $14 and $17 . I'm skeptical of trying new restaurants and when I finally found the courage to go. It was lunch time. I walked there from my job and explained to the cashier I only have a limited time frame. I paid $17 and some change and it took them 15minutes to prepare something that was already cooked. And it wasn't busy they just decided to take extra long. Then I was surprised with curly hair under my oxtails. When I went back to get my refund I express to them that when I asked for a small they said there is one size now and it's 17$. So I said ok I don't want any food, I would rather get a refund. Then the manager was salty about giving me back $17 she told me it was $14.25. So I verified with the cashiers that rang me up and the woman refunded me the proper amount and didn't say anything further not even a sorry.

I went there today to have a business lunch. It was 1pm the buffet was empty. We had rice with gravy because it was the only thing available. I asked the waitress when was the buffet going to be restocked she said there working on it now. After another 15 to 20 I asked again and was told its coming. Long story short 30 mins my business guest was full on rice and cornbread. I was able to eat chicken and greens 1 hour later. They never restocked. Charged me full price for 3 guest and said they had to charge me per the owner. They laughed and went on to serve carry out meals to waiting customer's. I also notice spoons used by customers was in the gravy and pans if they would have had food in them Pure Germs, filthy !!!!

I went there for business luncheon with 2 other potential partners. The buffet was empty!!! There was rice and rice and beans. Curry goat was just gravy. I asked when would more food be out, I was told there working on it. All the time I'm watching carry out orders going out the door. I asked 5 different times. An hour later the people I brought had ate rice and cornbread. They were full, but I knew better. I did get some chicken after 40 minutes. I couldn't get a refill, the waitress came over ask me if I was ready for my check. I responded wheres the buffet, wheres the food! They charged full price as if we ate lunch or a full meal. I asked for 50% off since they knew and admitted my table had nothing much. They said the owners told them to charge me full price. I asked for the owner I was ignored. I went up one last time and notice that the utensils used by customers were in the gravy in the pans. GERMS I thought how nasty! Maybe I was saved!!! Beware it's not a 4star !!!! Save yourself an emergency room vist!!!
