“Real Jamaican Experience”
Reviewed May 17, 2009

Ras Rody is a genuinly nice person, and has great vegatarian food. I am not much of a vegetarian, but I love his Festivals ( corn cakes with banana), pumpkin soup, and Coconut Mango smoothies. He grows most of his own vegetables so it is as organic as it gets.

“Amazing Amazing Amazing!”
Reviewed April 5, 2009

Ras Rody is amazing. He is the nicest, most genuine human being I have come across in a long time. His Ital food hits the spot (100% Vegan!), and his spirit invigorates the soul. The seating is on a tiny bench, but I loved it anyways. If you get there early, you can even get a free cooking lesson! What a man. What a place. What a find!

“Try it once. Then try anything else.”
Reviewed March 10, 2009

The food was moderately tasty. However you get a very weird sense that Rody and his kids are the very people that they warn you about when going to Jamaica.

In one sitting, you can see him charge different prices to different people (local v. tourists). If you catch him at the end of the day the serving size is much smaller for the same price. No cold drinks.

He is very pushy when trying to entice you into eating his food. He also is very quick to ask you for other business (whether to take you on over-priced tours or to sell you legal and illegal drugs.

His shack is also quite uncomfortable to sit as all he has is one piece of board for a bench.

All in all. You can find similar vegetarian food down the road for a better price at Royal Kitchen. Next door at Shark's has a very good veg plate if you're really hell-bent on not eating meat.

“Ros Rody's vegitarian”
Reviewed January 11, 2009

Rody's organic vegitarian is located on West end road across from Tensing Pen hotel.
Rody;s is a great spot for an informal lunch, get the lunch combo for 5oo J.
Rody;s is literally a shack on the side of the road with bench seating, but don't let appearances fool, this place is great.
The menu changes daily depending on availability. Just order the combo and your in for a great lunch. For true vegitarians, you could eat every meal here and be happy.
