The tiny joint serves Chinese, Vietnamese and ... yes a full complement of Jamaican cuisine.

Green Coconut Tree is a casual restaurant with simple furnishings and minimal décor. Two flat screen televisions on either wall had me mesmerized like staring into a fire. The place was clean, and we were given cloth napkins - a nice, unexpected touch. Jamaican menu items were completely foreign; the young girl who waited on us was patient. We blindly ordered a drink made from boiled sorrel leaves, ginger and sugar. It arrived on ice in a plastic cup with a lid, a vibrant beet purple color and tasted sweet, tart and tangy all at once.

Green Coconut Tree offers many of the dishes one might find in Jamaica: curried chicken, curried goat, curried potatoes, jerk chicken, beef patties, fried plantains, roti, oxtail and beans and rice. The ripe plantains, sliced thin and sautéed with butter and a bit of sugar and salt, come on the side of most plates or can be ordered à la carte. The curries are spicy but not too hot, and the goat in particular is very flavorful.

The jerk chicken sandwich was delicious, if a little small. The saltfish, however, excelled on all fronts - perfectly cooked and spiced, mixed with butterbeans, green onion, tomatoes and fresh thyme, and served with a side of plantains.

Yellow curry goat was finger-licking good.

Hours: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday
