We had x2 servers. One was lovely and bubbly. The other a bit more dazed.
It took x3 attempts to order drinks as everything we selected they would return 5-10 mins later saying it was out of stock.. our food arrived before our drinks and we had to ask 3 times for water. Again the girls were lovely but just unfocused.
Food was really nice, but pricey for the portion size. Sides are very expensive Especially the salsa which is a very small bowl for £5!
None of the staff wore masks and there was no social distancing measures inside or out. No hand sanitiser in place on entry. There was some at the bar though.
It was also obvious the restaurant were not asking if customers were from the same household and behind us was a table of 7 loud younger girls, they were not social distanced from each other or asked to do so. We were disappointed we’ve been visiting the drop on and off for 3 ish years now and each time we leave less satisfied.

Delicious food, would definitely go again. It was busy and service was slow, and whilst tables were 1M apart it was difficult to keep distance and no other precautions taken.

We had the Jerk Chicken, Curry Goat, Dumplings and Rice N Peas. All of it was amazing and washed down with a pitcher of Zombie which was great value for money. Thanks so much guys for the great service and lovely time

We got there and was given 5 minutes to order because they only served food until 10 but we booked a table at 9.45. The food was terrible, slimy chicken that was pink. Service was really bad. They wanted to just close the restaurant and get everyone out. Was really bad. The waitresses were drunk?!

Really enjoyed the food only downfall is that the restaurant is so small that people were being turned away due to being fully booked. Would be great for The Drop to have a location upgrade. Other than that absolutely fabulous and highly recommended!

Amazing food, great setting and amazing service. Only let down is there is no card machine. But the food makes up for this by a mile. Genuine authentic Caribbean food.

Love this place, I always order the hench box even though it’s massive and I can never finish it. I do this because it has lots of different bits on it and is excellent value for money.

Absolutely gorgeous food, if you have not been here before please try. They made such an effort for my daughters birthday. Run by people that care. Try the Rum punch.

First time eating in, thought I’d visit after ordering food and it being amazing! The restaurant did not disappoint the cutest vibes very intimate and cosy, with a banging playlist. There was only one lady working when I came in at about 7 serving everyone making drinks etc she was so friendly and warm exactly what you want! My food came and it was the wrong thing as there was a little misunderstanding of what I ordered she dealt with it superbly and it did not take away from my experience. Will definitely be going there again one of my favourite places in Manchester and great value for money, very large portion sizes and amazing quality food. Cannot praise it all enough

The food was amazing and the staff were really friendly. Big hearty portions for the roast dinner. The chicken pan gravy is a must. Accommodated dairy intolerance with no fuss
