Was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. At first I was worried because the restaurant is very small and it was hot inside like the AC did not work, but for what it lost in decor it makes up in the food. This is real authentic Jamaican food.

I've been to Jamaica House on more than a few occasions. It is more of a hole-in-the-wall carryout place than a dine-in restaurant. The thing that keeps me coming back is the food, especially given that Richmond doesn't have many options for authentic Jamaican cuisine.

I was reluctant to try this restaurant because I am fussy about Jamaican food. I had a veggie patty with cocoa bread and brown and stew red snapper served with rice and peas and cabbage. The veggie patty, rice and peas and cabbage were very good. The red snapper had the potential to be very good but it was a... More

This place has the best Jamaican food in the entire Virginia and even DC area. The oxtail, stew chicken, rice and peas and beef parties are out of this world. I've been going here for more than ten years now with no disappointment. I love this restaurant and the food!!
