Where in Abu Dhabi can get find rice and peas with your fried chicken? I especially love the BBQ fried chicken with mashed potatoes, servings are big enough and price point not bad at all for what you get. My new lunch spot.

I love a good meat pie, the patties at Kingston never disappoint. We ordered an assorted box, all flavors super yummy but my fav is the beef.

This is disgusting! I don't understand how they cook the chicken. It is grilled but it is also fried with a very old oil and bloody inside, the fries almost burnt they used old oil also. The staff is pleasant but the food I don't...think someone will come back for this kinds of food.More

Brunch in Jamaican style for only AED 59 at Kingston restaurant. It's called Sunrise brunch, and it's available on weekends from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. There is also a classic breakfast menu available, in addition to Jamaican breakfast staples. There were a number of...dishes that we tasted at the feast, including porridge, plantain fried dumplings, white rice, Ackee and salt fish, okra, baked beans, boiled eggs, mushrooms, chicken liver, brown chicken, fruits, pastries, and more. Aside from this, brunch also includes items prepared according to your order such as pancakes, eggs a la carte, French toast, and classic shakshuka. . We had a pretty good time at this cozy place. Throughout the ambiance, you feel like you're in a Jamaican setting. Many thanks to the staff, especially MJ, for their assistance.More

I booked the Father's Day promo and wow, what an amazing dining experience for a steal. We couldn't stop smiling as we received each course. The Jamaican coconut rolls melts in your mouth. Our favorite course was the lobster and jerked chicken, although on the...menu it said tiger prawns, we were impressed to see the lobster lol, no pic as I tucked in straight away. Overall my husband was happy. My job is done. Thanks team.More

We went for father’s day dinner and the authentic Jamaican food was exceptional. Very tasty and we enjoyed experiencing something new. The servers were friendly and attentive and the chef even came to greet us by our names at the table. Will definitely visit again.

I went there to try 85aed unlimited breakfast which advertised everywhere. Sever was friendly but he said I need ‘voucher’ to order unlimited breakfast, or I only can order from a la carte breakfast menu. I have checked their homepage and FB but none of...the post and advertisement mentioned about ‘voucher’. Therefore, I asked the server how can I buy the voucher, but even he didn’t know how to get. He told me after checking with his manager, I should get from their Facebook advertisement which appears randomly. I think it is nonsense and they should clearly state on their homepage or menu about this voucher rule. I won’t go back there again thanks to their ridiculous explanation and rule. 85딜함 아침마다 먹으러 방문하였으나 바우처가 필요하다는 말도 안되는 얘기를 함. 그 내용은 홈피나 페북 어디에도 없었음. 그래서 바우처 구매 방법을 물어보니 서버 본인도 알지 못하였고 확인후 알려준 방법은 페북에 랜덤으로 나오는 본인 광고에서 바우처를 구매해야한다고함. 나는 페북에서 이 음식점 광고를 본적도 없으며 랜덤으로 나오는 광고를 무슨수로 캡처해서 바우처를 들고 오라는건지 전혀 이해가 되지 않으며 그 내용은 어디에도 나와 있지 않음. 시간 낭비 했으며 절대 재방문 의사 없음More

It’s second time are visiting Kingston21 AD and this time for iftar. The Jamaican food in fusion with Arabic tastes of the region is definitely a one to try. Jamaican rice, meat & chicken clubbed with Arabic mezzeh, charcuterie & select items of delicious desserts...were truly a filling & delicious iftar affair. With calm & serene view of the Raha beach and cozy beachy outdoors and Bohemian Chic indoor seatings this restaurant has a beautiful vibe of its own! We love the place and if you’re craving Jamaican cuisine, this is a must visit in AbuDhabi. 🤍More

I just want to say/give bad review in your resto but thank your staff MJ she redeemed back our trust and turned our bad experience in your resto into a great one you should hire more staff like her, one of your staff took our...orders and none of it came we have to order multiple times to get it. Anyway the food is nice and we had a bad start but we finished it very nicely.Surely we'll come back and will try all from your menu as we came late and your staff said 1130 is your last order. Thank you so much anyway for today's experience the food is really nice I love the french toast and sausages.More
