I have been eating at Chicken Lavish for many years. Service is always good and freindly. I happen to like the fried chicken, my wife likes the sweet & sour chicken. Jerk chicken is good too, just a little too spicy for my taste though.

I have gone to Negril a few times and I always make sure I stop in and have my favorite meal of sweet and sour chicken with mashed potatoes and coleslaw, always fresh and a view of the sea as well. Of course there is different dishes for different tastes, a must try if you enjoy great food and great... More

Usually stop by at least once to get some delicious fried chicken... one of my must stop spots. Eat in or take out it's always good. Say Hi to Doc for me!

We've been going for years. Fantastic fried chicken, good portions, reasonably priced. Conch soup is "Magic in a Bowl". Doc, please get better white wine. My wife will appreciate it. Great food. Convenient West End location.

I ordered the fried chicken and my girlfriend got the lobster and they were both incredibly good. Our friends were happy with their pork chop and conch soup too. The host and owner is a really nice guy as well and gave my girlfriend a complimentary soup because she was hungry and didn't want to wait long. Great service and... More
