We currently have two permanent outlets on the South East coast, Kent, UK.

Our first street food outlet opened in 2018 in a Beach Hut on Herne Bay Pier.

We opened our second outlet in July 2023 on Whitstable Harbour

Good Vibes

Both our locations are right on the coast, have fabulous sea views and all the facilities you may need for a wonderfully refreshing seaside experience.

Herne Bay

Soul food on the sea, literally!  A perfect place for watching the amazing Herne Bay sunsets, taking in the fresh air and beautiful sea views; watching a gig; shopping at the retail village; enjoying the bar next door…you can even get married and enjoy our food at your wedding!

What They Say about Dre's

The curry goat was honestly sensational. Having eaten Jamaican food all over South London, Dre’s is HANDS DOWN the best I’ve ever had. The meat was so tender it literally just fell ofthe bone. I really can’t wait to come back and get a bigger portion next time!!
