good food, fun restaurant. Curry chicken was great. Goat was different but not bad, jerk pretty good. Rice and peas were plain but not bad

At first I was skeptical as I thought I would have been faced with food lacking flavour. I muscles up, ordered the safe jerk chicken and to my surprise the meal was great. The price for the quantity received was worth it and the jerk sauce tasted great. I would recommend it. My colleagues had ox tail and that too... More

Was on the shopping trip there with my family. After shopping we decided to go up for a quick beer. Price was ok and family ordered some jerk wings which they said were ok but not the best they had had.

Have been here twice - once in 2007 and again in 2014. The food is expensive and overpriced as I think it is because they are trading on the Bob Marley connection.

We did the shopping trip to a couple of outdoor malls and we were done early and decided to go to mama marley's for some appies and drinks. The prices were outrages and the drinks were terrible and our waitress was awful.

Decent enough restaurant, serving some amazing jerk chicken. However, it was very hot and stuffy, the staff were fairly average, and the food took a long time to come. There is a wide range of drinks on the menu, and the food menu is better than a lot of Jamaican restaurants. The prices were probably slightly expensive, but definitely geared... More

We stumbled across this place while shopping in town. The bar staff was very friendly and eager to serve. The drinks were average priced, but good.
