  • I only sampled a bit of my friend's "goat" curry (made of seitan) but it definitely did not compare to the food at a more authentic Caribbean restaurant like Imhotep's. It was only slightly spicy for my taste and the flavor seemed off (or at least not what I am used to for a curry). The cornbread, however, was quite good and I'd probably get that again if I were to go back. Either the honey situation changed or the staff didn't know that honey is not considered vegan by many because when I asked what was vegan, I was told "everything."

  • The macaroni! Oh, that macaroni. The look and texture are spot-on, but the taste. The taste is not good. A friend and I came late at night to try the food here. I don't think anyone has yet mentioned that the place is open until midnight, pretty convenient. A lot of the dishes were out late night, but I got to try curried goat (quite good), three-bean chili (beans were hard, lacking flavor), yam salad (delish, not yammy enough though), and the aforementioned 'roni.

    I personally really like cafeteria style places, the server was quite friendly, and the place seemed cool. Food is just maybe hit-or-miss. And there's honey in the jerk tofu, what's the deal with that y'all???

  • I just went here for the first time yesterday. The place is large and very, very colorful. It put me in such a good mood! The owner was my server and she was very friendly and encouraged me to sample many things. The mac n cheese wasn't to my liking as it wasn't very thick, creamy, or cheesy tasting, but the good thing is you are welcome to sample it and draw your own conclusion before you drop the cash. I love, love, love the chili lime quinoa. It is very original and pretty spicy. I found none of the other food exceptional, but it wasn't bad either. (I disagree with comments that the food is bland, but I also don't eat spicy food very often so perhaps my palate is more sensitive.) The food was a tad overpriced considering the portion size and that the food isn't organic. As I live in a part of Brooklyn where there are many superior options for vegan Caribbean food, I wouldn't go out of my way to eat at MD. Still, the service and atmosphere is exceptional, so I plan to return whenever I am in the area.

  • Review by al oof on March 1, 2008:

  • every time i eat here, i just wish it was better. everything is kind of flavorless. of course, i keep eating here, because it's relatively nutritious. the roasted vegetables are pretty good. i really just wish things were spicier. maybe saltier. i mean, i shouldn't have to salt a beef patty to make it palateable.

    speaking of beef patties, i can't decide if they are boring or gross. i love jamaican beef patties. i love them. and i am so disappointed over and over again when i go to might diamond for them. the crust is wrong. the filling is flavorless. and they don't have coco bread. not that the patty needs it. but it makes me sad. i don't know why it is so bland there. i really want to like the place because the food is fresh and fast and the folks are nice. but it is so bland. and the mac and cheese is kind of clay like, both in consistency and flavor.

  • Enjoyed a wonderful lunch yesterday. The curry "goat" =4, jerk tofu =5 (sell this by the pound as takeaway!), mac&chese - um, no, go back to start and reformulate, garlicky collards = 4. Cornbread is very good. Plenty of seats here for a group - plus beer & wine offerings! And barely half a block from subway stop.

  • This is one of those places that is completely fine without ever threatening to be actually great. If I lived nearby, I'd probably grab food here a lot--it's easy, pleasant, and perfectly edible. But it's certainly not worth a trip from more than 10 blocks away. A decent enough neighborhood joint. Now if only we could get more neighborhoods to have places like this!

    Everything costs a few dollars more and has a little less flavor than it would at a real Jamaican place. But the staff is probably easier to talk to here.

    Specifics: mac&cheese is fine for the yeasty kind, quinoa is useless/bad, goat is tasty (but not spicy if you've ever had real Jamaican food! grow up, people!). Sucks that the jerk tofu has honey!

  • I loved eating here- I was lucky enough to be with a group into sharing, so I had a chance to taste many magnificent morsels. Each and every dish was deeeelicious!! The textures and flavors are just divine. Consume mass quantities!

  • i love this place. i've lived in the neighborhood for a while, and even though i eat meat, i've always wished there were more places with vegetables. this doesn't taste like typical health food to me, it's really flavorful and it's not, like, toaster dorm room boca burgers either. for the price it seems really home cooked and fresh. the "goat" and the patties are awesome. it's really convenient and fast too.

  • Review by larrypie on January 18, 2008:

  • I like this place a lot. I eat there at least twice a week, and I'm not even vegetarian. The best thing about it overall, is that the food is healthy, but nothing TASTES like HEALTH FOOD. Everything I've had-(and I think I've had it all...) has flavor, and i really like the spicy stuff. I appreciate that there is something to eat in the hood besides pizza or a sandwich, and that there are usually a few different veggies to choose from- not only fake meats. My favorites are the "goat," the homemade patties-(both are great), and the vegan desserts. Try the chocolate rum cake. It's pretty amazing.

  • I agree that the food is not as superb as Veggie Castle but there are some tasty items. The curry goat, rice & peas and jerk tofu are good choices. I also enjoy the mac & cheese but it seems to be of the nutritional yeast variety (don't expect true cheesy taste).

  • Review by Massif on December 7, 2007:

  • yum yum yum, i wish i had more days off so i could visit this place more often, everything i've tried on the menu i've been impressed with except for the kale, but i'm picky when it comes to kale. Other than that, the food is awesome, i love how spicy everything is and man are those patties incredible! i'm so glad this place opened up, it was exactly what i was looking for! and so nearby too!

  • Review by JonG on November 28, 2007:

  • I stopped by this week. The food doesn't stack up to other Carribean vegan places like Veggie Castle or Imhotep's (though it knocks the crap out of Carribean Delight!). However, it's a good vegan choice for the neighborhood. Similarly, it's more expensive than most vegan Carribean, but not pricy for the neighborhood, which abounds in $8 veggie burgers.

    On specific items:
    Goat: Excellent, highly recommended.
    Fish: Tartare sauce was good, but the fish itself was dry and unpleasant tasting.
    Chili: Average.
    Quinoa: Bland, disappointing.
    Mac & Cheese: No place in NYC makes a good vegan Mac & Cheese, IMO. But this place comes closest. Definitely give it a try.
    Patties: I liked both; my friend enjoyed the beef but not the veggie patty. They're twice what Veggie Castle charges, but large and tasty.

    Atmosphere is pleasant but not anyplace you'd take someone to impress.

    Service is from a steam table. The server was pleasant, knowledgeable about ingredients, and vegan-aware. A bit distressing that they deliver all the way to the river, but not even to the Grand St. L stop "because the delivery folks get mugged." At the Grand stop? Hmm.

    Conclusion:
    It's middle-of-the-road for vegan NYC; definitely give it a try, especially if you live nearby. The menu is limited and hit-and-miss, but hopefully will be rotated, and there are enough good items to make a meal.

  • Review by knuckle sandwich on November 28, 2007:

  • I have to agree that I'm thankful for some spice! Though they do have plenty of non-spicy menu items, too.. just ask the servers which ones are/aren't.
    I also noticed that it says cash only on this listing, but they do take credit cards with a $10 minimum.

  • outstanding. Stop crying because the faux goat is spicy--be thankful! Nowhere has good spicy food around here. I am a big time meat eater and am opting for the Mighty D tonight. Keep the flavor and the spice coming....

  • Review by Tiffany on November 14, 2007:

  • My friend and I went to check out Mighty Diamond last night and I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked the cafeteria style serving as well as the diversity of options. I usually dislike mac and cheese, but I really loved theirs, so much so that I finished all of my food and the leftovers of my friend's m&c. He didn't really like his food very much though, the tempeh fish was a bit dry and the goat was too spicy for him, but that just meant more for me! I really love the decor/vibe of the place. Its clean and bright with a great mural and vibrant colors.

  • Review by msouthan on November 13, 2007:

  • The food is very good! It's cafeteria style which doesnt sound great, but it means big portions at really low prices. I recommend the curry "goat," tempeh fish and mac and cheese. Everything's vegan though the jerk tofu has honey in it. Also, they DO deliver now so you might want to note that in the info above.
