Real Jamaican Cuisine

I have tried quite a few restaurants that serve Jamaican cuisine. Its usually hit or miss with a lot of these places. I have found Beryl's Pepperpot at the Ajax location to be consistent with the quality of the meals served. It is always worth the trip to get real Jamaican dishes.

Every time I am able to be in the east end, I make sure I get to Beryl's for their jerk chicken. I cannot speak for some of the other delicacies (typical West Indies fare, Ackee & Salt fish, various curries, barbeque, oxtail, etc.), but I've seen them ordered time and time again. Myself on the other hand I have... More

They charge you 0.95 cents to any meal if you ask for gravy. This is unheard of! Any other joint gives you as much or as little gravy as you want without charge. And if they do charge, $1.00 is just ridiculous!!! The food is not that good. Sorry but I cannot believe these high ranked reviews are legit. I... More

Whether at a funeral, or at a private function, or at her Toronto location, the food always has that authenticity of Jamaica. Just last weekend our mutual friend brought me some food from a function that was catered by Beryl's and my daughter ate it all. It was her first time experiencing it. Now she wants the address for the... More

My wife loves jerk chicken and since there is not much choose in this area I am stuck going to this tried, run down , dirty place. She says the food is good, but I have to go inside and I am always shocked that people eat here. Further the staff are down right mean. They act like they are... More

All the dishes which we tried whether for catering or as takeout were excellent, i.e. Jerk Chicken, Oxtail, Roast Fish (usually on Fridays); fried fish. On Fridays the corn meal pudding and sweet potatoe pudding are excellent.

Beryl's is the first Jamaican spot that tastes close to my mother's cooking and my mom knows how to cook!

After reading how good the jerk pork was, and smelling it in the air from the nearby dog park, I decided to try Beryl's. The staff weren't rude...it's just that my attempts to be friendly (Mentioning the positive things I'd heard etc.) were met with an aloof response. I ordered it with the rice & peas. While the pork was... More

I am regular customer at Beryl's, just live down the street. The food is good most of the time. The other time you have to wonder WHO IS IN THE KITCHEN? Portion are generous, if you dont end up with lot of bones or peppercorns. Some times the food is too peppery, you just have to swallow then drink lots... More

I just finished off a large jerk pork dinner from Beryl's and it was outstanding. I've been eating Jamaican food around the GTA for 25 years (a big fan of Albert's) and I could tell after one meal that Beryl's really knows how to do it right. More than any other place, I could taste the individual flavours: the peppercorns... More
