This is just like entering a Caribbean cozy oasis! The staff is welcoming and guides you trough their authentic menu always with that smile that you can experience only by travelling to that beautiful island.

Came with a group of 5 late on a weekday night. I'd never been and love Jamaican food. The wings were delicious. As we're the fritters. The curry goat was okay. Not great. I've had better at Glady's in Brooklyn.

We stopped in for lunch and had the BEST FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH EVER! Hands down there is nothing better! Fried chicken thighs, warm brioche bread and jerk mayo with butter lettuce. Soooooo good. This place never fails and the music and vibe and wait staff are always amazing! If you're in NY, don't miss Miss Lily's!

We went around 5pm and they have a happy hour til 7pm with good drinks. We ate/drank- Dutty Wine Lily's Punch Early Bird Chicken(Jerk chicken) w/rice and peas. The chicken was great but the rice and peas were dry. Ackee & Salt fish was good too. The resturant atmosphere is pretty fun with a old school bar cafe feel.

We arrived at six thirty pm to a virtually empty restaurant, on a Saturday night. We were seated between two squashed tables of several of their staff, COUNTING MONEY, and working on computers. For a Saturday night dinner date with my husband, I thought this was unexcuseable, and certainly not hygienic, I spoke to the very nice manager who informed... More

For the price- which isn't cheap at all- I would expect good, well seasoned authentic carribean spicy food. I would be disappointed if I purchased this food from a street truck. Bland, unseasoned, spices extremely tame... Not to mention being wedged between staff who were counting out the days takings either side of us Massive disappointment for $80!!

Very unusual place in Dubai. Small cosy Jamaican restaurant/bar with beautiful decor, good food, and great service. Although there is a small bar, the place is so small I would only recommend it for people who also want to eat and not only drink. Good for a dinner date, or a group of friends wanting to eat and drink. Make... More

Great, energetic atmosphere. This restaurant specializes in rum drinks and a diverse menu. Mac and cheese, french fries and stew are on the menu.The mac and cheese was my favorite! We called for a reservation and they were full. We took a cab to the area and walked in. Luckily there had been a cancellation so we were able to... More

This was my first experience eating Jamaican food, and I'll be back! Everything was terrific: food, service and atmosphere. Great music while you're eating. A totally satisfying dining experience.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
