Authentic Jamaican food

Really good authentic Jamaican food at a great price. You can purchase a good authentic Jamaican meal for less than $10

Mom's serves local cuisine. My husband had the curried goat and I had the pork. Both cooked in Jamaican style. This was new to us but it was very tasty.

this is where the Jamaican's go.........$6.00 for dinner, we had the curried goat and another night we had the curried chicken. The only thing is that there always bones in their food........I'm not keen on bones but the meal was delicious. It's just down from the Clock tower. Don't get it mixed up with Mother's which is a fast food... More

Short walk from Sand Castle where we stayed. All meals priced nicely, curried chicken or goad J500, which is $5. exchange your US $ next door in a store for better rate. My daughter loved ox tail :) Can't wait to try breakfast this morning

Hard to find, the front has a large sign, but then the actual entrance looks like a regular office window - once we found it, the menu's simple and really great, we got the fried chicken and it came with rice and beans, coleslaw and pasta as well as soup.

Food was great! That's about it. The place is dismal without one picture on the plain walls. Door squeaking so loud non stop. Personal could have been more friendly. Location ....? And mainly the cheating with exchange rate to us$ was really disturbing!

Great Flavor Oxtail. Too many bones though, not enough meat. A little far into town, so I wouldn't suggest going alone or at night

Amazing, we liked it so much we went back the next day. I had Curried Goat for the first time. It's REALLY delicious. Our driver took us here when we asked to go to a local resturant. It's a little off the beaten path but well worth the walk. ( second day) This is a definite must on your restaurant... More

Ate lunch here yesterday. One of us the famed curry goat, one had curry chicken, one had Oxtail, and one had fried chicken. All meals were exceptional. Best meal best price. We are going back today
