Bird of Paradise is a new Caribbean restaurant located in 'Midtown' Brockley and according to the manager the food takes influences from across the Caribbean.

I have tried the food 3 times - twice takeaway (with free delivery for orders over £10) and once eating in and each time the food and service have been great.

The menu varies each day from a fairly wide selection and so far I have enjoyed the stewed chicken, curried chicken and the curried goat. Each time the food has been flavoursome with generous portions. The takeaway was delivered promptly and came with complimentary banana crisps and salad.

The decor of the restaurant is clean and fun with the colours taken from the restaurant's logo. When eating in I tried out the homemade the ginger beer and sorrel juice. The ginger beer was very punchy but a bit sweet for my tastes. However, the sorrel juice was lovely and refreshing with a unique taste that I would definitely go for again.

Highly recommended. Visit
