Buster Mantis is located down a little alleyway just off Deptford High Street, spread over two railway arches underneath the platforms of Deptford rail station. One arch functions as a bar, café and eatery, with the other arch serving as a gallery and creative space, hosting regular events, art exhibitions and screenings. The restaurant focuses on Jamaican food and drinks, because that is what they know best. The majority of their ingredients are sourced locally and the menu changes regularly based on what they see and like that week. The menu always features old Jamaican favourites such as jerk, ackee and salt-fish and curry. The cocktail list tends to revolve around rum, and also specialises in local beers, on keg and in bottle. Buster Mantis takes its name from the first prime minister of Jamaica, Sir Alexander Bustamante, who was instrumental in establishing the country's independence. It is a small, independent family business, whose owners have lived between Jamaica and this area for the last 60 years.
