Success! Thanks for posting your review of Kallaloo. You’ve done the world some good today.

Fantastic Food in Relaxing Atmosphere

I've been going to Kallaloo for a few years now. It is a perfect place to take a bite of sunshine on a cold, rainy Seattle day. The owners are very friendly and seem genuinely interested in satisfying customers. I've tried just about everything on the dinner menu, but the jerk pork chop is probably my favorite, followed by the bread pudding. Nothing in Columbia City beats that, especially for the price.

TERRIFIC FOOD and MUSIC at a sometimes Caribbean Pace

My wife and I have been going to Kallaloo for almost two years now and thoroughly enjoy it. The restarant is well-located a half block off the Columbia City main drag (Rainier Ave) - right across from the main public parking lot. In the warmer weather they have the windows open, which is delightful, but even in winter the wall of windows allows a lot of light in. They are always playing great island music; sometimes ... view more

Inviting atmosphere and wonderfully tasty cuisine

I'm certainly no expect on Caribbean food, but this place has some fantastic dishes. You do pay for the exotic ingredients but in my opinion it's worth it. And it's certainly a wonderful benefit to have such reasonable (and regional) cocktails as well. I recommend the Cuban Mojito. Yum! Likewise, if you order an entree that does not come with either red or black beans & rice, I'd definately suggest ordering one ... view more

As close to being in the islands as you can get!

We recently ate at kallaloo on the recommendation of some friends of ours. I was thrilled to find that the food tasted just like it does in the Caribbean. Folks, this is as authentic as it gets in Seattle. Best fried plantains to be found in Seattle. One of us had the Jerk-rubbed pork chop and couldn't stop talking about it on the way home. The chop was done to perfection, with just the right amount of heat. I ... view more

WE were impressed!

FIRST time to visit for LUNCH on a FRIDAY and it was EXCELLENT! It is also my first time to write a review. \r \r I had the 'island salad' which consisted of shredded papaya, three very nicely grilled citrus marinated prawns, roasted peppers with curry vinaigrette (NO lettuce) and macaroni pie. Although I am a lover of seafood and would wish a TON of prawns on my plate, three provided just enough fo the dish. Can... view more

Worst Restaurant - Kallaloo

I am usually excited to write reviews so I can spread the word about great spots. However, last night I had BY FAR the worst experience ever at Kallaloo. The owner lacks empathy and accountability. If at all possible, she will place blame on the customer. Scenario: 30 people for a birthday party. On our end, we did not have everyone's order for a pre-order despite our best attempts. However, this restaurant ONLY had ... view more

Terrific food, warm environment, friendly owners

We've eaten here a few times, and when we can get in (it can be really crowded on some nights, but be a testament to their great food) we always have a great experience. The husband and wife owners are always friendly, like welcoming you into their home. The place is very much a ""family joint"", and the food is terrific. I had the Curried Crab and Dumplings last, and it was so good I almost cried--perfectly seaso... view more

Tasty food!

I've been around the block foodwise... and it's been a while since I got really excited about a meal. We had buttermilk chicken, greens and mac and cheese. Salad with avocado, candied ginger, j-e-r-k (for some reason the previous word is refused on this site... wierd) chicken.. and tomatillo-posole soup. The flavors were unique and fresh, quite exceptional. I don't know any other restaurant in Seattle that serves... view more

Nothing special here

Your better off a one one of the local teriyaki joints - seriously. Way too busy and understaffed. Can't really understand why it's busy because the food is mediocre. Maybe it's tasty for the Seattleite pallette. This place wouldn't survice in an east coast city with a Caribean population.
