My coworker picked up food for me today after smelling someone else’s lunch in the office. I ordered 2x mild beef patties, the curry chicken lunch special and a side of plantains. The lunch special came with rice, veggies and 1 plantain. However I love plantains and snack on them during the day.So first things first. I devoured the beef patties. There were so good and the crust was flakey. Oh perfect! I tasted the other items and they were all delicious. However I was full from the patties so the rest of the food will be my dinner for tonight.Since my food was delivered to me I would like to check the actual restaurant out.

I've tried this location on several occasions and the jerk seasoning is more sweet than spicy and it doesn't taste like the authentic jerk chicken from the island. The portions are small especially when they have ox tails. I prefer other authentic Jamaican restaurants to this location.

Most consistent Jamaican food in the Durham area. Oxtail is good!! I order here when I really need food from home. Patties are okay- nothing like Tastee but are decent! 8/10 would recommend!

The food is very good especially the curry goat. They give plenty of cabbage and try the spicy beef pattys to.

Had the stew chicken and it was very fresh and delicious. I was looking at the server crazy because she kept stacking 😂 more chicken on my plate this was my first time so I wasn’t expecting that much food but I’m definitely not complaining. The food was very good especially the rice and peas or beans lol

The oxtails are good....but since I have started to find more “Jamaican” style restaurants, I feel as though they are overpriced. I spent $57 on 3 plates (jerk chicken, curry chicken and oxtails) again, no complaint on the oxtails but everything else was a “NO” for me. The cabbage was ok... plantains were hard....the chicken was PINK and the rum cake was nasty. Oh, the chicken pattie was not really what I had before...it was ok though. Overall, just an ok for me but def won’t be my first thought to return here.

My husband picked up food for me. I don't know who is in the Kitchen but you all have to do better!Please clean the chicken properly. Take liver looking stuff out the crevices of the chicken. I was so mad when I saw that stuff remained attached. I have no idea what you did to the jerk sauce. Taste like I threw hot sauce inna it to doctor it up No man this cyann work. There are lots of people here from yard and you cant fool us. Somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed wit this ya cooking. SMH onno fi do betta chicken flopRice and cabbage was ok

The food is good but I used to eat here regularly until I went in and there was a significant increase in the prices but the portions got smaller.

As always, I was thoroughly impressed with the taste of my order. The Curry Goat was tenderly cooked to perfection and the cabbage, rice, and plantains complemented it with every bite. By far my favorite item purchased was their “Pineapple Ginger” juice!!! I need it on retail shelves ASAP. All in all, this trip to Golden Krust was definitely worth it and I recommend them if you’re in the mood for great Jamaican food! 🙏🏽Atmosphere: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Taste: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Composition: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Presentation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Price: ⭐️⭐️⭐️Overall: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 (4)FOLLOW @GRUB.LUV ON INSTAGRAM FOR MORE REVIEWS!! #GRUBLUV

Didn't dislike the Golden Krust, the food was smelling good & the Coco bread and mild beef patties I ordered was delicious. I really need to get back over there to get me a supply.😁. There's no place in this neck of the woods that compares at all.

Food is good... but I’ve been to way better golden Krusts... they were out of a lot of items including beef patties on the day of the special. The white girl is also rude and lack luster... not impressed

I drive an hour away for their goat curry. Everything I’ve eaten here has always been good. 4 stars only because I need one closer to my home.

The Golden Krust isn't cheap but you get what you pay for. I pay $25 for a large oxtail meal and eat off of that one plate 4x's easily. This equates to $6.25 per plate. They are friendly and always customer oriented. They NEVER disappoint!

Great place to dine or take out! Excellent customer service, friendly staff, nice sized portions for your money’s worth!!! My family had the oxtails and curry chicken plates with red beans and rice, plantains and greens all under $30.

I love the goat but the prices have gotten a little high so I don't visit as much. $25 for a large plate and then they try to pack it down with rice! No thank you!

They have vegan beyond patties & veggie patties which are soooo good! They take some time to be made fresh but it’s well worth the wait 😋 & there fresh herbal juices/teas are delicious🥤 my partner enjoyed the vegetable plate , but me not to much. Dad enjoyed his jerk chicken plate. But definitely will be back to try new things. (Im pescatarian)

Drove one-hour to Durham, NC to get oxtails, beef patties and coco-bread; so happy to know there's a Golden Krust in the area. It's worth the drive!!!!

Golden Krust has a wide variety of foods like ox tails, curried goat, red snapper and rice and beans and plantains. The large plate is two meals in one. The desserts are very good . The rum cake is tasty. My fav drink is the pineapple ginger juice.

Great food at an excellent price. Had a craving for Jamaican food and found that Golden Crust had opened a place near me. I've been to Jamaica several times and this is as close to the taste that I found in Jamaica as I've found in any US Jamaican restaurant. Had a spicy beef pie and the jerk chicken meal. Could not believe the amount of food I got for less than $13.50 plus tax. They even give you side containers of jerk sauce so you can increase the level of spice to your taste. Definitely going back.

The food and service here are excellent, I enjoyed my curry chicken so much, I will be going back for more. The patties were on point too! It was definitely authentic food, the staff said the cooks were from the islands, I guess that's why it was so tasty😋

Whenever I'm driving South on I-85 from Washington DC. Golden Krust is a must pit stop. Always a favorite and it makes the drive more enjoyable. The ox tails, curry goat, patties, and spiced bun are the best

I like this restaurant a lot. I’ve been three times, I’ve gotten a curry chicken lunch special, jerk chicken small plate, a spicy beef patty, a pineapple ginger drink, and had some lemon cake. All good that I have gotten so far has been flavorful, a little overpriced maybe, but it’s all been good. The cashier and the people who have served the food have been professional and kind . The plates and the lunch special all have rice and plantains or cabbage with the main meat. I like the plantains a lot, they have flavor and are sweet. The lunch special with a spicy beef patty will run you for 12, which I would say is a good price for the good food that you get. Very nice restaurant.

If you want spices like never before and a taste that packs a carribean style crunch this is the place to go. By far better than lees kitchen 🤤

Being vegetarian I was happy I could find a variety of patties that suited my palate. My daughter ordered jerk chicken and became violently ill. She was obviously not impressed. Needless to say I will come for the patties but not sure of anything else.

Amazing authentic food. Macaroni cheese is the best I have ever tasted. I absolutely loved the goat too!

10/10 would recommend this restaurant!! You get so much food in one plate. The ox tail is my favorite and super tender. I also liked the chicken patties and mac n cheese!

Pricey because ALL foreign restaurants are greedy. Good food but most times don't have what I want: veggie roti. I might go once or twice a month, depending on my work schedule. They will hire a foreigner before they hire a Foundational Black American, who mostly patronize this establishment.
