Journey to the Caribbean without leaving Surrey at Di Reggae Café!

5 reasons to visit Surrey’s Caribbean getaway today

Sights, sounds and tastes of the islands are as close as Di Reggae Café

With more music, expanded hours and a new patio taking shape, a visit to Surrey’s Di Reggae Café may be the only Caribbean getaway you need!

And we can’t forget the deliciously authentic Caribbean cuisine crafted fresh on-site using the freshest ingredients.

Growing up in Jamaica, chef and owner Richie Hussett learned early to create delicious Caribbean cuisine – dishes he now shares with appreciative diners.

Building community connections with school, community and church groups, it’s no wonder food is central to Hussett’s vision of a family-friendly destination. “Caribbean cuisine is the closest thing to a home-cooked meal,” he reflects.

If you haven’t yet visited Surrey’s answer to a Caribbean getaway, here’s 5 reasons it’s a must:

  1. Exceptional flavours – What’s the first dish to try if you’re new to Caribbean fare? “Definitely the Jerk chicken – our most popular dish,” Hussett says, noting the unique spice is available in various heat levels. Other favourites include oxtail, Jamaican patties and Hussett’s personal favourite, Brown Street Chicken, a mild stew that’s also a popular pick with kids. Enjoy your meal with a beverage straight from the Caribbean, from Red Stripe beer to Wray & Nephew Overproof Rum, or for younger guests, a non-alcoholic ginger beer or pineapple soda.
  2. Fish and vegetarian selections – Those same fresh flavours are equally delicious in Di Reggae’s fish and vegetable dishes. (Mark your calendar for Fish Fridays!) On the run? Take-out is popular for those on the go. You can even call ahead to have your order ready for pick-up when you arrive.
  3. Rockin’ to reggae – Expanding Di Reggae’s most popular events, watch for regular Saturday evening entertainment and special events. Coming up March 30, the Maple Ridge Reggae Jam plays reggae from the 1970s and ‘80s – Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, UB40, Jimmy Cliff, The Heptones and more! There’s no cover charge and the music begins at 7 p.m. Beginning in April, enjoy regular Saturday entertainment – steel drums to reggae, but all Caribbean!
  4. Patio perfect – Work is underway on a new patio, and Hussett hopes to welcome guests later this spring to the inviting, islands-inspired setting, echoing the warm, colourful interior.
  5. A beautiful ting – One of the highlights of any visit to the islands is the people – friendly and welcoming – and Di Reggae Café is no different. More often than not, Hussett is the guy doing the cooking, joined in the restaurant by others from the diverse local community. But regardless of who’s taking your order, you know they’ll be doing it with a smile and a laugh: as the Jamaican coat of arms says, ‘Out of many we are but one people.”


Visit Di Reggae Café at 13593 King George Blvd., near Surrey City Central and the Gateway Skytrain station, Tuesday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sundays from noon to 7 p.m.


Great food and a welcoming atmosphere have made Di Reggae Café a Surrey favourite.
