island grill at the kingston airport gives you the local cuisine prior to departure. Ive eaten here before and its usally a full balanced meal you can depend on. Well im not sure whats going on with their lack of management. I know we are...in jamaica so yam, banana, and ackee are not imported so why are they not available for the meal. Instead they are now serving you 3 fried dumplings and for large meal 5 fried dumplings. And you cannot have a substitute, must pay for plantains. I want to scream on behalf of my rectum. Island grill has poor quality controlMore

I placed my order with the cashier who I realized later had submitted and charged for something entirely different. Unfortunately, I did not check order details on my receipt.....my fault. The service behind the counter was "dead slow" The servers were busy only with chatting...and socializing among themselves. After opening my meal, I then realized I had received the wrong items. It was at this time that I checked the receipt attached to my order and noted that items listed on the receipt were NOT EVEN THE ITEMS IN THE BOX. I immediately returned to the restaurant, advised of my situation and asked to make it right. The cashier gave me the items I originally requested but said there will NOT be a refund of the difference.More

A must visit takeaway for reasonable authentic Caribbean dishes. The BBQ chicken was moist and delicious with the nicest chips 😋

The service is usually very slow and one often has to deal with long lines especially on weekend evenings. One expects the management to organize the teams in the stores around these busy period. Another feature that disappoints is the current paper strays that melts...in your month if you do not quickly drink your juice. Another workable stray solution is neededMore

I wanted the chicken sandwich cut in two and the lady said she can't find a knife. I am in Mobay and went to the one in mega mart plaza. Poor customer service. Not even a napkin.

Went to the Island Grill in Kingston Jamaica, and it didn't disappoint. I had the jerk chicken and fries and it was very flavorsome. (The rice looked good too.) The ambiance was great, the music was nice and service was prompt. Really delivered on the...Jamaican jerk food experience.More

The Island Grille provides authentic Jamaican meal whether it be jerked or curry. I particularly liked that they were one of the first corporate entity that showed care for the environment transitioning ahead with more materials that were environmentally friendly.
