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.

I attended this restaurant recently as part of a tour so I cannot comment on the price. The goat curry came highly recommended washed down with the local home-made lemonade which was not too sour. If you would like to try local Indian Jamaican curry I would recommend this restaurant, but don't be in a hurry.

Special thing about the place is their curry spiced food (a lot of curry).... Try curry goat and order some lemonade to extinguish the fire....
