We came for lunch and got a lesson on local history and how food plays a role in local life. It's a small roadside stand, and the appearance may put you off, but stop, sit and enjoy the delicious freshly sourced local vegan food. Shadrock will let you in on his thoughts on food and health, and will tell you... More

It was the last day of my trip and I decided to get Ras Rody's for lunch because it got good reviews and I didn't want another burger. When I was getting the run down of the food being offered that day, I was thinking I would have to choose one item, but the chef said he would give me... More

We had lunch here after much convincing by myself that DH should give it a try. He did and totally loved it! We were the only customers at the time, so we were able to enjoy great conversation and had Shadrock's complete attention while we ate our delicious soup appetizer and combo plates! I have to admit, TVP (ask him... More

Super food -- A very small stand on the road, that has just great vegetarian food. It was recommended by several people who said go there for 'real' Jamaican food. We were not disappointed...

This review is long overdue, as we frequented Ras Rody multiple times during our 2011 and 2012 trips to Jamaica. We actually returned to Tensing Pen in part because we didn't want to miss out on this delicious, inspired, fresh vegan food. We came back for breakfast and lunch multiple times, preferring Ras Rody's cuisine to Tensing Pen's by far!... More

This place was great and super quick for lunch. The all vegetarian menu was excellent, and unique. Visitors shouldn't be intimidated by the appearance of the place (its a roadside stand with limited seating). The food was great and the cooks were always friendly.

If you visit Negril and don't stop by here for lunch or dinner, you're missing out! everything on the menu was great, from the pumpkin soup to the festival and fresh ginger juice! The value is great as well, I paid twice as much for meals in the area that weren't half as good as Ras Rody's. Sit down and... More

It is so small you might miss it - but right across the street from Tensing Pen on the main road sits Ras Rody's. The people who run it are friendly and knowledgeable about their food. The food is delicious and changes daily. It is very very affordable. We ended up popping in every time we just wanted a little... More

This place is a must! Neither of us are vegan, we aren't even vegetarians, but we eat plenty of vegetarian and vegan and this by far was the best we've had inclusive of many non-v meals. Don't be fooled by the kitchen and roadside setup (something we didn't mind at all and rather enjoyed!), what you are getting can easily... More
