This is my first time visiting this wonderful establishment. They had live music that was awesome. I had to jerk chicken and it was the most moist ever. I will definitely be coming back to this place in the near future.

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 !

After hearing about how great this restaurant was from numerous friends, I decided to try it out. Last night, my boyfriend and I arrived at 1005pm. 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

Food is tasty, good service, make sure you ask if a dish is spicy or not. I got the Fried Fish with spiced pickled Onions and carrots which was really spicy. Serving size is generous. 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
