Great food at a great price

You can always tell great food by whether it's visited by the locals - the first day we tried to visit, there was no food left! Shadrach, the owner, promised to save us a spot for the next day. True to his word, we ate there the next day, and were not disappointed! My husband is a very picky... read more

This is vegan food at its finest! We've never had anything quite like it. While in Jamaica, we were looking for a clean, healthy meal that would "power" us through our adventures, but we didn't want to sacrifice taste. Ras Rody did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded our expectations! You won't walk away hungry. The portions are generous enough... More

This was one of the best dining experiences I've had... And I travel a lot! Not only the amazing vegan food, but the conversation as well. Providing us with coutural background on the dishes and where all the vegetables cane from.

This is a roadside stand on West End road. It is completely worth a stop, or even a trip if you have an interest in trying Ital food or are a vegetarian. We got soup and a selection of delicious curries with veggies and TVP served over rice in a half coconut shell (although there are limited quantities of coconut... More

We are not vegetarian, but were recommended the place which is opposite the Tensing Pen. We tried it and we just loved it. The colors, the textures, the nice chats with Kachina... It was really special. Fresh, tasty, unexpected. A great lesson of Jamaican cuisine.

Shadrock was super friendly and helpful. His food was delicious and very well made. He has pride in what he does and grows most of his ingredients on his organic farm. A small red food stand across from Tensing Pen resort, worth a stop.

Researching for our trip to Negril, I came upon Ras Rody's and thought my vegetarian mother and I (not vegetarian) should go have some lunch and try the food based on the excellent reviews. I wasn't convinced, thinking the food was probably going to be pretty good, but that I would miss the meat. Boy was I wrong!! Shadrock is... More

If you'r going through west end road eg. towards the lighthouse, barneys humming bird garden or Rick's cafe its a must! Although dining conditions are not 5* but it doesn't matter. Rody is a brilliant guy, not only his cooking is nice but he's also a great guy to chat with! Be sure to visit Rody for a quite early... More
