We always get the Groupon here. We are never disappointed in the food! Even without the Groupon, I believe the value is still there.

I was in town for business and looking for a quick lunch. I heard about Jamaica Gates and wanted to try it. When I got there, the hostess recommended the buffet so I could get a nice sample of everything. It was a pretty extensive buffet and everything was kept pretty fresh. I've simply just had tastier Jamaican food elsewhere.

We visited this place which was pretty good but I thought it was going to be better. We had good service . We wanted to get because the guy from the tv show had visited the restaurant which my kids thought was pretty cool. The owner was very sweet !

We walked in and saw it was pretty crowded, to be expected for a Sat night, cool. The hostess came, cleaned off a table and sat us. We watched as waiter after waiter walked... More

They have 9 dollar buffets wednesday-friday lunch according to our server. Gave it 3 stars because the food took 38mins to come out from the... More

Late one evening watching Guy Fieri food show and this place was one of his recommendations; we had to go try it out. We fell in love! Jamaica Gates is the pathway to great Caribbean food in Arlington, Tx. When we go, I always order the Portland Sampler because I like variety and the Chocolate Rum Runner Cake have enough... More

We went to lunch on a Saturday early before any rush. We were seated first and ordered before other patrons but we were served or food last. We had chicken salad and another chicken dish that were not even close to being Jerk. Which based on other meals coming out of the kitchen, our meals were not complicated.The restaurant is... More

This place is a hidden gem. The food here is amazing. We had the sampler platter and everything on it was magnificent. The red stripe curry was fantastic. The staff here are friendly, efficient, and fast. Highly recommended.
