Perfect place for Caribbean (specifically Jamaican food). Host was really friendly and helped with the menu on what best to pick. Food was delicious. Portions in Dubai are quite big in general so couldn’t finish it BUT it means it’s perfect for bigger groups or...families for sharing. If you can’t finish they provide to go bags. Our group had a variety of dishes which all tasted amazing, defo a must visit! Oh and lovely decor - even in the bathrooms haha!More

so 19 of us travelled from all over to Dubai to celebrate my 40th in Feb 2022....and we had an absolutely amazing party at TING IRIE! ... i had visited Ting Irie 5 years ago and loved it - the food, the staff, the vibe...,,,love it all!!! and that is is why i decided to reach out to the team for my birthday so when we planned the trip i contacted them and asked if they would host my birthday celebration and they agreed - from the first email they were amazing - they provided all the info, they accommodated and on the day they delivered. Jennifer, Tai and the guys (bartender and 'ras' waiter) all looked after us like whoa! the food, the staff, the RUM PUNCH, the music and overall atmosphere... it just works....thb EVERYTING is just IRIE! Thank you all and we will be back.... ps it was so good that 3 days after the part we went back and had drinks (5L Rum punch lol)More

Everything about this place was fantastic. Only issue was due to Covid we could not dance. Food was great jerk hummus was off the chain. Michael was our go to and he did an excellent job taking care of us. If I'm ever in Dubai...I will definitely be back at Ting Irie.

Ting Irie is one of my favourite spots in Dubai and they never disappoint. Good vibes and amazing Jamaican food, all day, any day. And this is from someone who has been visiting for years. What really strikes me though is that the staff are...always pleasant, warm and ready to cater to guests. On my most recent visit on a Saturday evening, Crystal and Emmanuel waited my table and both of them were exceptional. Absolute superstars. Would definitely recommend this restaurant any day.More

Extremely bad brunch! Easily the worst that I have been to in 15 years Dubai. Low quality food, lots of non-authentic Jamaican (Rasta pasta was simple pesto pasta, Rasta salad was greek style feta salad, etc), average drinks, horrible service. For example, the main course...got put on our table while we were both away for 5mins without asking to be served, so when we came back, it was cold. Screaming loud music - no chance to talk. We raised our concerns, especially the poor food, with the Manager but got a feeling they simply dont care.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.
