huge pattie made to order, fresh ingredients ie chicken, lobster, veggie, pizza. Niah is a character and fun to watch him cook. They are great as leftovers!

We heard about this place and decided to try it out for lunch one day. It was the best lunch we had in Jamaica so we came back five more times.... Not only for the food, but also for the unique character, Niah! And his lovely sister. Make sure to go there before you get too hungry since Niah loves... More

It seems as though everyone waiting on line compares the proprietor to Seinfeld's soup nazi. He yells at the customers and threatens to take the food back or not serve you at all. He is very inefficient. With just one person ahead of me, it took 45 minutes in the hot sun to get two OK patties. They were well... More

We went here for some patties with friends during our stay at CSA a bit down the beach. Patties are freshly made to order (by you!!!). Niah's sister helped with the cooking while us men went next door for beers. We did speak with Niah outside for a bit. The patties were fantastic and well worth it. We ordered a... More

I had one of these patties every day! Take your patience when you go to Niah's...the owner is most always high...takes his time and sometimes gets mixed up. If this place had not been recommended I would never have ordered a thing...it is a real shack, no sign, not even sure there was electric. Niah's sister also works there and... More

Tried these patties during the donkey races. The line was long compared to other vendors. Clue #1 I was in the right place. The wait for food was also long. I assume it's because the patties are made with love. Whatever it is...worth the wait! The patties on their own are great but Niah makes a sauce that kicks it... More

We were staying very close to Niah's and went daily for patties which are great. I think they are the best in Negril. The only problem is Niah as he is usually very high and becomes cantankerous with customers and his sister Marta. One day it took about 45 minutes to get a pattie as he just kept rambling on...

Been there so many times and tried them all. Keep coming back for the Italian. Excellent taste and hot til the last bite. Speaking about service, we once came for our anniversary and Niahs was really closed. He heard us outside, opened, fired up his cooking area, and made two Italians just for us. Here in Negril right now and... More

Thanks to the people on the trip advisor forum I learned about this place. I'm so glad my wife and I hunted it down near the Waves Art section on 7 mile beach. At first I thought maybe it was closed down but then say the smoke coming from a small shack. Niah's patties were very very good (especially the... More
