Niah's Patties

Fresh ingredients, friendly owner combine to make the best patties on the beach. Just a little shack by the park and a bit of a trek but so worth it! Usually go there daily for lunch.

We met JA NIAH at a bar one night and he invited us to try his patties and offered to teach my GF to cook them. We took him up on his offer and they were excellent. One patty is a full lunch or meal, they are very filling. One Love JA NIAH!

Loved the patties here. They're much thicker compared to others we had. Niah & his sister are so very friendly too. Made a couple of trips back during our visit. The "mix" patty was our favorite. Can't wait to come back here again!

First, let me try and tell you how to find this place. If you are on 7 mile beach, near Rondel Village ( a hotel/resort on the beach) look for the Wavz Art Complex, which isn't really a complex, but a fenced in area of wooden shacks right off the beach. Niah's Patties is the last wooden shack on the... More

Patties are thick and hearty probably 3x the size of the other ones. 6us. I had the Italian which was very much like a calzone. Wife had curried chicken with a decent portion of chicken for apattie. Took only about 10 minutes.

We had the ackee, tomato and cheese and the vegetable patty, which we took back to our beach hotel. Enjoyed all three with a cold red stripe on the beach. These patties are different from hammond's and the guy who sells them on the bicycle. Made fresh to order with a more rustic dough and plenty of filling. They seem... More

Thought we would try an Italian and an Irish for the first time. The Irish is pumpkin and potato. The Irish was pretty good, but Wow the Italian was so delicious. The fresh tomato and cheese, onion and spices were a wonderful mix. Something similar to a calzone or a panzerotti. The exterior was crispy and the inside cooked to... More

Went to Niah's on the recommendation of a fellow guest at a neighboring resort. No prices were posted and when I asked for the price I was asked by the male cook, "How much do you want to pay." Not knowing any different, I advised the man that patties were selling for two for five dollars on the beach. The... More
