The food was authentic! It’s a small restaurant, right across the street from the VCU campus. The service was good. I love Jamaican food and was very impressed with the seasoning of the food. The prices also are reasonable.

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....More
