I can safely say that throughout our entire trip to Hawaii, this place was worth taking the time out to visit for authentic Caribbean food. The food was the best we had tasted throughout our entire trip. Jerk wings were to die for, jerk chicken also the salad with dressing made entirely by the chef himself was mouthwatering. The Ital...

Our first visit to Jawaiian Irie Jerk restaurant left us feeling positive. In a neighborhood full of good eateries we would come back here. We tried 5 dishes and enjoyed them all but the curry goat was voted best. The coconut curry shrimp appetizer was my favorite as well as the nutty cheesy rice with Callaloo, a wild spinach. The...

Everything we ordered came out looking and tasting amazing. Small place, intimate casual setting. You won't be disappointed! Staff is excellent, a well oiled machine. Can't wait to go back.

I love the Fried Fish with Johnny Cakes creamy sauce and moist fish ! The service is very relaxed and made my visit very comforting especially with the reggae music playing

My sister took us here, I tried many need items such as ox meat and goat. We also had the fish. All was great. This is a small mom and pop restaurant and they let you bring in your own beer or wine.

We've lived in Hawaii for nearly twenty years and get around a great deal; however, this restaurant was challenging to find. The signage is limited and requires a touch of the explorer to find it. The food is ok and the service acceptable. The day we went they did not have the goat curry (as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and... More

A few of my friends & I were in Hawaii from 1/28/16-2/25/16 we went to the location, trying to find it was a lil hectic. Once we finally found it (the sign was too damn small) we drove into the parking lot, which we COULD NOT find a handicap spot! My best friend lives in Hawaii & he is disabled,... More
