Winding up to drop delicious bombs on the good people of London, Buster Mantis is a unique proposition, offering an irresistible mix of stunning location and fine Caribbean food and drink. A truly underground social project spearheaded by erstwhile London-via-Jamaica (and back again) resident Gordon, Buster Mantis has been built from the ground up by friends and family in an incredible double railway arch space beneath the tracks running through Deptford station along Resolution Way. Classics like Jamaican jerk chicken are given seriously proper treatment here, as are smaller seasonal plates representing the best of the West Indies, a carefully curated selection of local and international beers, wines, and – the ace in the hole – a house rum punch that undoubtedly packs one. Sling a reservation Buster Mantis’ way and you won’t be disappointed.

Absolutely fantastic way to break our 'dry Jan' . The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable. The food....oh my....the mac n cheese actually gave me goosebumps and it was a pleasure to watch the chef work. Will defiantly be back.
Great place, great food. Lots of people just coming for the music!
So I was a. Little disappointed that they no loner serve dishes with gravy. The curry goat and other traditional delicious dishes to which I had highly rated them for and craved. I feel like I’m not sure what you are now seems like their aiming to be a bar. Was not what I wanted I wanted restaurant bar. Cocktails were amazing. I just want you to please reconsider the menu. Other wise I think it’s a bad move. And makes you a fast food joint. Which I would not invest in 😒
