Beware of the sauce it can be so so hotter than you expect - not sure if you can "try before you buy" - but just be careful Chips were well seasoned (or if anything slightly overly seasoned)

Be prepared to ring several times, be left on hold, and your orders 'forgotten'. The food is quite tasty and fresh, if you can do battle with the imbeciles working there.

been here many times and reviewed previously Nothing changed - still a nice alternative to other usual options and fair value One thing I did notice this time was the chips/fries - perhaps a bit too seasoned but they were hot fresh crispy and worth it Chicken used always seems fresh and of good quality Fairly busy last night

I was so excited to hear about this place but also hesitant as I have lived in Jamaica and have eaten jerk chicken all over the island. I loved this place. For people a little scared of spice there were 3 degrees of heat that you could choose from. We also ordered oxtail which is my absolute favorite Jamaican dish.... More

Lunch with the crew from work as we 'had to try the Rastas Revenge Very Hot chicken burger'... I chickened out (see what I did there?) and ordered a Kingston burger combo with the hot sauce instead of the very hot one. The hot burger was actually really nice, just enough heat extend the flavour of the burger but not... More

...I had a good dose of Jamaican loving at Jamroc in Mermaid Waters. It felt like it's kinda in the boondocks, but a great cheap feed for those who are in the know or possibly lost. Tasty tasty jerk chicken and other things for the family for under 50 bucks... And Jamaican hot sauces at the table for those who... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday night - we had been gifted a Scoopon & perhaps this is where the problem started? We had booked, as instructed to do so on the Scoopon but we shouldn't have bothered as there is no one there welcoming you / seating you. The girl on the front counter was abrupt & quite... More

We chose this lunch spot as past of an A-Z dinner challenge and were pointed here by the entertainment book. We were happily surprised. Fresh tasty chicken loaded with flavour. Chips and sauces were good too.

Been here some time ago and my GF and I went back for lunch today - all super casual and the "made to order" freshness will get us to come back again for sure. Look this is not a restauant in the traditional scheme of things but for a tasty and seemingly quite fresh chicken light meal/snack then my suggestion... More

Description
The term 'jerk' is the name given to the traditional method of Jamaican cooking in which meats are marinated in a unique blend of herbs and spices, and then char grilled to succulent perfection. The care taken to prepare the 'jerk' marinate, and the time the meat is allowed to marinate in partnership with the char-grilling are essential for producing the amazing flavour and aroma that 'jerk' is renowned around the world for. At Jamroc we follow these timeless traditions and recipes handed down from generation to generation in order to produce such a special and unique flavour thats guaranteed to leave you craving more. Whether you like it the traditional way off the bone, or in a gourmet burger or wrap the choice is yours!
