I have tried both chicken and pork and it is the most delicious thing I have ever tasted. The texture, the spiciness the smoky flavour everything was perfect. Do try!

The aroma and how they cook the food with a wood fire is very interesting. My jerk pork and roasted sweet potato was delicious!!! The staff were so warm and friendly

Jerk chicken is authentic! Simple place to spend a nice breeze of Jamaica. Convenient location close to several hotels. Seating is cozy. Staff is friendly. A good place to relax after a busy day at work.

I'm partial to Scotchies but I had some very good jerk here too. They sometimes have lamb. Very friendly and helpful staff. The ambiance is a bit ... rustic. If you're fastidious, you might prefer carry out, but once you tuck into your jerk, you probably won't be paying attention to anything else anyway. Recommended.

Sweetwood Jerk is one of the top 3 jerk places in Kingston. It is located right on Emancipation park and is a nice place to chill out.

Easily the best Jerk I had in Jamaica ( better than in Boston bay). I had the chicken, pork, and sausage (yes I was very hungry). The neat was more tender and moist than the other places.

My first time to a real jerk joint and I enjoyed it so much I went back for seconds later that night. It is served in foil and with outside dining, The selection is good, beer is cold and people are super friendly. I hope I have to go on biz here again this will be my first stop.

I was staying at Courtleigh Hotel and decided to walk around the park. I smelled the jerk and the pork has me hooked. I drive back often for my Jerk pork when I am in town.
