Have been hearing about Island Delights for the past couple of weeks and finally made it for a lunch time try. I ordered the jerked chicken with beans and rice and plantains. The jerked chicken was awesome . . . fell off the bone and enough hot pepper kick to make the forehead glisten a bit. The beans and rice was really good and helped to soak up the great sauce from the chicken. Finished this off with an order of plantains and they were fantastic. Not over cooked or mushy . . . great texture and sweet caramelized goodness. Will definitely be returning to the Island Delight for future meals. — Anonymous Reviewer

Just ordered from here. The quality and quantity are spot on. But be wary. They charged me for food I didn't order and that's not a way to get repeat customers. Make sure you get a bill or you might be getting screwed over. — Anonymous Reviewer

Won't deliver within the advertised 5 mile radius (was less than 3 miles away). Shame because the food looked good. Pitty they don't have the right entrepreneurial spirit... — Anonymous Reviewer

On July 5, 2013 I had lunch at the new location of Island Delights, a Caribbean Restaurant that had moved in early June to 805 North Loudoun Street, Suite 102, after being at 821 North Loudoun for several years. It's in a small strip shopping center just north of Jackson Street. A smoker was fired up out on the parking lot, and the cook told me that she was preparing Jerk Chicken.

The menu included Jerk Chicken, Curried Chicken, Curried Goat, Curried Oxtail, Curried Shrimp, Brown Stew; Lunch Specials, Appetizers, Sandwiches, Wraps, Jamaican Patties, Seafood Delights, Chicken Entrées, Pork Entrées, Beef Entrées, Goat Entrées. Cook's Specials, Kid's Meals, Beverages, and Desserts.

The menu was actually the old one used at 821 North Loudoun. The waitress said that a new one was being printed that would show the correct address and incorporate additional items. I asked about the Jerk Chicken, and was told that it was somewhat spicy, but not extremely so.

I decided on a Jerk Chicken sandwich, with a bottle of Jamaican Cream Soda to quench the fire. The sandwich came on a large round roll sprinkled with sesame seeds. It was good, with a degree of spiciness near the upper limit of my tolerance, but not eye-watering.

The interior of the restaurant is brand spanking new. The blond hardwood floor, white ceiling tiles, and pastel green walls give the room a light and airy appearance. A table for four just inside the door on your right, with two booths further back.

The bar in the rear has high-rise chairs, but the shelves were not stocked because the liquor license is still pending. More seating was provided by five tables for four in center of the room, and a segregated area along the wall to your left has three tables for four.

I'm putting Island Delights on my keep list, and plan to bring friends and family here who are interested in ethnic eating. As far as I know, the Tropical Island Coffee Café on West Piccadilly is only other Caribbean restaurant in the immediate area. Both places feature a Jamaican cuisine.
