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.
