With an array of celebrity endorsements plastered across the walls (including Rihanna, Amy Winehouse and Damian Marley), the good people at Ochi haven’t had to work too hard to get customers through the door.

Whilst the pint-sized, black and white interior may not take you back to the colours and vibrancy of the islands, the taste and aromas of the food certainly will; it's absolutely delicious.

I demolished their large, sweet and spicy goat curry for £8, or you can get a small for £6, with rice and peas or plain rice. Few curries have filled me with more joy, brimming with delicate, tenderly spiced meat and potatoes, both falling apart with ease.

With only two small tables in the shop, eating-in may not be a viable option, though they offer both takeaway and delivery on everything, including their mouth-watering dumplings, soups and of course, jerk chicken! Note: minimum card spend £10.
