We went for cocktails with friends hoping to use the entertainer at 80aed per drink. They refused to accept the entertainer for our rounds of drinks at the end of the evening so for that reason alone we would not choose to return again. Very...sad.More

Great drinks. We arrived at the restaurant and the lady in the reception kept talking on the phone as if she hadn’t seen us didn’t seem to be bothered... Someone saw us so he came and attended and they decided to offer us a table...eventually Went on a Wednesday so the place was not too busy. They had a DJ which was cool and the food was delicious. Tried the offer that included unlimited drinks and I think it was worth it. The food platter was huge two of us couldn’t finish it...Not my first time but I will return on a weekend to have a feel of a more busy and fun evening! Thanks to the guys they were super cool.More

Remarkable food & service. We unfortunately discovered this restaurant the last day of our trip otherwise I would have eaten here everyday. The food & atmosphere was so delicious that I asked if the owner can open a location in my hometown. My friends &...I had already discussed visiting their new location in Abu Dhabi on the beach next yearMore

Authentic Jamaican food in the heart of Dubai!! The setting, music, food and staff take you back to the island of Jamaica where every-ting is Irie...all right. The oxtail sandwiches and patties were delicious appetizers. We could have ordered just those and be satisfied. We...then had ackee and fried Jonny cakes which were also delicious as well as the curried goat and rice. Ww ordered a side of rice and peas, greens and plantains. Suffice it to say we couldn't finish all the food! A must stop in Dubai!!More

This place was recommended to me by a good friend after I told him I was craving some good ox tail. I’m a native New Yorker, so Jamaican cuisine was a normal thing for me, I had to check it out. Didn’t disappoint.

If you do go to this restaurant, please pay in cash! They do fraudulent activities on your card like charging you double and refusing to refund their mistake. I visited the restuarant on the 3rd January 2020 and upon returning to paris, I notice 2...charges (instead of one) for the brunch that I took. I notified them of their mistake and they refuse to give me back my money because apparently the 2nd transaction did not go the them. My personal banker said the transaction was fully completed and the money was removed and deposited in their account so he could not retract the charge. Ting irie was then supposed to write a letter to say they didnt double charge me but a month has passed and they no longer reply to my emails. BNP Paribas Fraud department is investigating because they stole from meMore

I have a soft spot for everything Caribbean and this place didn't disappoint! It wasn't too busy when I was there, yet the atmosphere was amazing! I felt like a took a trip to Jamaica. The food is delicious but overpriced for the portions. The...service is very friendly.More

The location of the restaurant is a tourist area so best during the week for a more attentive service. I would go on a weekend if you are looking for a busier but charged up vibe. Parking in this area is limited.
