    Yup that's the one, it's now called true love.

    We arrived around 8pm and were immediately met by the very affable owner, sorry forgot his name. The place is not fancy how ever spotlessly clean and adequate for a nice meal. We chose to sit outside as inside is quite small and a few people there.

    Soon as we sat the complimentary food arrived, honestly larger than a normal starter. He is doing a dis service to himself here. Curries were excellent as was the chicken. Very impressed with costings and quality, my partner was given a tour of the kitchen which she compared to a surgery.

    The owner is over friendly and never left our table, this could be a consideration to first time diners wanting privacy. The guy is so friendly. Further he is involved in many charitable acts, feeding homeless kids and the like.

    All in all excellent food, modest surroundings, very affordable, we shall return, highly recommended.

    PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY ORVILLE... You have a great place, the best "jerk chicken, rice and bread on the Island" Your passion for serving the best you can is second to none. But.... your adoption of the school in Valencia and your desire to raise funds to help the children there (although admirable) is in some ways hurting your business. When regulars patronize your restaurant you come out as you always do, greet them, check on their meal and make sure all is to yours and their standards.
    You also bring up the school and your passion to help them and ask for donations and that makes some people uncomfortable for a couple reasons. Many customers are on a fixed income and can't afford to donate and feel embarrassed and uncomfortable being asked. Others come for the food only (it's great) and actually don't care about a school in Valencia. They are there for the food, service and pleasant banter only.
    I have been here a while (8 years) and am a very positive upbeat guy. If I can make a suggestion please. Make a flyer up and have it on display for all to see and take if they are so inclined. It can be included with the bill after some one eats and is ready to pay and leave. You work FB well, DI is also is a good medium for all to see whats going on in your time away from the restaurant.
    To coin a phrase..separate church from state. Take care of business as you do as well as anyone I have ever met here and your personal goals and charities would be best served outside the walls of your restaurant.
    I know I will get a new a%^hole ripped into me for this post, but if I have heard this from several people in the last couple weeks then many others have also. I apologize in advance if I hurt your feelings . Gerry

    Sorry that I have not read well all threads here but.....

    We have eaten here about 10 times and NEVER had any feeling the owner was hinting at donations. Absolutely nothing, he chatted about his work, I even offered some books from a charity I work with. He was most grateful.

    Food, company staff and guests whom frequent all top of the line.

    yes pleased to report all back to normal here. Another excellent meal a few nights ago. Really feel for the owner whom seems to have taken the break in well.

    He is doing excellent work with a school up Valencia way and really deserves as much patronage as we can give him. A great guy.

    Brothers thank you in Jamaica everyone like hot and spicy. Here in the Philippines it hard to fine the correct balance reason is some like it hot some don't so for us we try to keep it where everyone can enjoy our meals. If and customers like more spice please let us know we will be happy to but the heat in it.
