Lots to Explore with NK Deli in New Kingston Shopping Centre!

20150725_152539-1

NK Deli located upstairs (same side as the Pharmacy) in New Kingston Shopping Centre at 30 Dominica Drive, is quite a reasonable, central lunch spot. Definitely better than spending twice the money downstairs at Cuddy’z Sports Bar & Restaurant for possible bad service and poor quality food. Don’t even think of going to the other two restaurants upstairs across from the Deli either (Glow Food and N & R Restaurant). They are horrible.

Last Saturday, about 3:25pm, I went to the Deli for lunch. It had a nice layout with indoor and outdoor seating. Limited indoor seating with AC! Outdoors had sufficient fans blowing cool air. Lovely.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted the Grilled Chicken or Jerked Chicken Wrap, so I asked the cashier for advice. She was quite unpleasant and eventually mumbled, maybe the Grilled Chicken Wrap ($475+tx). So I ordered that and my friend ordered the Grilled Chicken Panini ($560+tx), both with a serving of fries (additional cost). Looking around, the Deli supports local products and distributors by having Chocolate Bars, Spreads and more available from Mount Pleasant Farm Chocolatiers, who have previously been promoted on Suga Lifestyle. A small range of Snacks are also available for purchase, healthy and unhealthy, along with Wine and a decadent looking Cheesecake that is prepared fresh daily.

In about 20 minutes (I thought it could be a bit quicker based on our order), our server came with our orders in styrofoam boxes and saw the look on our faces, realizing that we did not want our order to-go. She asked if the cashier did not ask our preference and I responded that she was quite unpleasant and did no such thing. The server and owner on the other hand, were the total opposite, pleasant and professional. Our server apologized for the inconvenience. Note, one must avoid eating and drinking from styrofoam boxes and cups as much as possible. They are toxic to the environment and rumoured to be harmful to your health.

Anyhow, my Grilled Chicken Wrap was just OK. It would cater more to rabbits, you know, way too much lettuce in a Spinach Wrap. More chicken please. It was actually somewhat filling though. Restaurants need to play around with their greens more and mix it up a little. Lettuce does not need to be used all the time. There is Arugula, Spinach, Kale, Cilantro and more to add a kick to the flavour of the Wrap or Sandwich.

I wish I ordered the Grilled Chicken Panini though. I tasted it and it was good, with a lovely sauce. Their Cheeseburger and wedges, which I have had before are also quite tasty. Their Fruit Smoothie is very sweet, even with white rum.  Their fries? Bland. They perhaps should try some seasoned fries or add a bit more salt. I had to add salt myself. However, I am looking forward to trying their Jamaican lunch that is quite affordable. Buffet Fried Chicken and Curried Goat were available for $350JMD each! Soup is available as well as many other items such as Wings, Pastas, Pizzas, Pork Chops, Omelettes, Bagels etc. So a pleasing range of items for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

I have visited NK Deli for their Friday Lymes but wanted to see the regular work day flow. It seems to be great if you want to just get in and out with a decent, affordable meal or even just have a small lunch time link up with someone. The Friday Lyme is quite a mature crowd, however they have started to do Latin nights on some of the Fridays now. Suga may check out one of them and give you the low down. Definitely more to explore at NK Deli. They are open from 7am to 5pm on week days and 12pm to 5pm on Saturdays.

  1. Good Day,
    Thank you very much for the review on NK Deli as we welcome the feedback from you our valid guest. We are happy that you’ve visited and are absolutely delighted to have you back here with us and trust that our service next time around doesn’t just meet your expectation but exceeds it.

  2. I’ve VISITED Nk Deli very often, and the service is very up to standard, you are correct on the time of wait, it does take a little time to get the orders, but each day I go and order knowing that is the type of service I am going to get i go and order same way because their meal is worth the wait, I complain about the taxes on the lunch said I will never come back because how they tax their lunches I still go because their food is accurate and consitant on excellent level, the wraps are good, I see you speak about the cashier,that i can’t agree with, the cashier had good customer service and there is always a smile and a good morning or good afternoon as i step through that door, the cashier is very friendly and easy to communicate with and never once when I step in the deli the cashier is not pleasant.. the cashier is always pleasant, the servers give good service. i will continue to eat at nk deli for good quality of food and good service.

    1. Thanks for your feedback Shawn. With regards to the cashier (I am thinking it is just one now based on your description), experiences may be different, especially since you are a familiar face or perhaps she was having a bad day based on your account of her track record. So we will see. Suga keeps it real. Someone else who went after seeing this review also spoke of taxes when trying to work out money quickly during a lunch break. Maybe they should quote their prices tax inclusive and the perception may be different. However she had a decent experience regardless. Thanks again.
