good for lunch

Tasty and reasonably priced. Kids' meals are very reasonable! Planning to go back when the weather is warm to sit outside.

I visited this restaurant Saturday and had rice with Caribbean beans. It was good but I was looking for Jamaican food which they advertise the restaurant as and they did not have it. The others liked what they had but if you are used to rice and peas and curried goat or chicken do not visit there. I will try... More

So if you've been in Asheville long enough, you know what the vibe is like here. Nine mile fits right in, as this Jamaican restaurant is a tribute to Mr. Bob Marley. But this is no joke...Marley would be proud! This is one of the best meals I've had in a long time! Ordered the special...mahi with plantains. There was... More

Asheville has numerous restaurants and if you are looking for something different with a Caribbean flavor this is the place to go. The service is great. Portions are large and reasonably priced. You don't have to be a Bob Marley fan to enjoy this wonderful place. The chicken jerk dishes are a must sensational.

An unique dining experience. The atmosphere was delightful - great background music; interesting paintings on the wall. The service was friendly, and the food was quite good. For me the best part was the Natty Bread served with all meals. It was the best garlic bread I have had maybe ever. The salad was spectacular and the sesame garlic dressing... More

We were driving around the Montford area of Asheville and noticed Nine Mile. People were seated on the sidewalk outside and looked like they were enjoying themselves. We went in and were surprised by the extensive menu and variety. The sushi grade tuna salad was very well done. The staff was good, the interior delightful and the food excellent. Some... More

I've been twice, one to this location which I prefer because the atmosphere is a little more cozy & authentic feeling, and one to the West Asheville location. The food tastes just as good at both. I've gotten: One Foundation grilled jerk chicken or jerk tofu with garden fresh vegetables, grilled pineapple & fire-roasted tomatoes sauteed with white wine &... More

I had never had any Caribbean food before I ate at Nine Mile, and it was a great introduction. I cannot remember the name of my dish, but I ordered a pasta dish with pineapples, tomatoes, and chicken and it was absolutely amazing. I had leftovers for days and I plan on eating there again as soon as I can.... More

Me & my wife recently dined here, and it was uniquely amazing. You cannot go to Asheville and not eat here!! We live in Charleston SC (a food capital) and you can't get cuisine like this anywhere! The smell of garlic will knock you down, so good!
