I had no idea that it would be SOOOO good! Everything was very tasty and finger licking good! We had a group and we ordered various things but the jerk chicken and curried goat were my faves… all the greens and rice and peas. Literally everything was amazing!!! Can’t wait to have them again.

Turkey Wing dinner with sweet potatoes was very good. If you're interested in ordering food to go, it's best to call ahead and order since all entrees are cooked-prepared once customer orders are received.

I am a Southern girl who relocated to the area recently. I came to Dakari in search of soul food and I got that and so much more!

Our meals were fresh and extremely tasty. I ... read more

I am stuffed! I was craving soul food and glad I found Dakari's. The catfish was fried perfectly, the seafood salad was creamy and well seasoned, good greens, grandmama's sweet potatoes, delicious cornbread with honey, homemade half & half. The wings were tender and hot, fried just right. I can't wait to return.

Initially when I called that wasn't many items that was still left which made me a little weary but I found something on the menu the jerk chicken and two sides that absolutely made up for what was not available. They definitely have good food and I would recommend this place.
