Had to grab a quick lunch with my baby and was so pleased with this little jewel in downtown. The service was excellent we had our lunch served in less than 15 minutes despite the crowd. The food was exceptional we had the curry goat which is their signature dish. I didn't even notice the spicey nature until it was... More

Moby Dick is smack in the heart of Downtown Orange St in Jamaica..it is popularly known for its curried & roti offerings! There is not much parking but there is always a mouthful to enjoy the tasty food and the service is quick!

We were taken here by Karen from JCE (Jamaica Cultural Exchange) tours and let me tell you...it was an amazing experience. First of all, this small restaurant is located in the heart of busy downtown Kingston - but the business section. Second, it is run by Muslims. This was my first time experiencing real Islamic people from Middle Eastern origins... More

I just adore their roti and curry. Seriously the menu is varied and you cannot go wrong with any choice you make if you are a lover of spicy foods.

The place is in lower town Kingston in a less than appealing neighbourhood. Parking is a serious challenge though some street lads will help find a spot. Dull dark and not conducive to anything worthwell. Well wrong! Curried conch, white rice, fried plantain, roti... To die for... Not a scrap left on either of our plates. Jamaican style/speed service... But... More

I asked for the curried goat to be extra spicy, and the wait person (family staffed) told me that it will already be plenty spicy....she was right, and it was delicious! After 2 servings of their homemade fruit punch, I left Moby Dick feeling verrrrry satisfied! Oh, and the Jamaican style roti is a must have!

Very limited menu is not usually a problem. One goes to Moby Dick for curry, curry and more curry, which is done to perfection on goat, chicken, conch and shrimp. Very little else is available, but that's alright! Food is tasty, portions are reasonably sized and the servers are genuinely friendly and helpful.
