This restaurant is a hidden gem in Montreal and they have the best Jerk chicken I have ever tasted!! It was my first time visiting Boom J's and I will definitely be going back! The taste of their Jerk seasoning is so good it is...right down to the bone. There is a nice spice and heat flavor with a hint of sweetness. Just writing this review makes my mouth water and want to go order more!!More

This place is incredible. I am a huge fan of the roti wrap, and the patties- the patties are 2$ and i have consumed a shameful amount since living nearby. The chicken is always good, and the 7$ lunch menu is a bargain. One of...the best parts of the pointe!More

Stumbled upon this gem while being attracted to the smell of the amazing jerk chicken they cook outside of the restaurant. I ordered a 15$ plate of pork, chicken, rice plantain and salad. The portions were huge! Had enough food for 2 meals. Very tasty...sauce and tender meat. No trip to Pointe-Saint-Charles will be complete without a stop at Boom J’s for me...More

Was in the city for the weekend, had the curry goat roti. Really good and they did not skimp on the meat! I love it so much that I went back the next day for lunch.

I don’t know what restaurant the people who rated this place low went to, because it certainly wasn’t the one I have come to know and love over the the course of four-plus years of almost weekly visits. Their food is absolutely off-the-chart good (the...spice mixture they use for their curries is absolutely the most wonderful flavor) and the prices are completely reasonable, especially given the massive portions (I always get two meals out of a roti with a side of plantains and beans/rice). The folks that run it are kind and lovely...and frequently also insanely busy because they do a massive take-out and delivery business. If they’re a little short with you on occasion, don’t take it personally...it’s called working really hard to keep an amazing treasure of the neighborhood open!More

I went there for take away and was very disappointed by the bad welcoming. The lady ignored me during 15 min while she was over the phone with another client. Then, she finally started to talk to me without a smile and got another phone...call. Someone else came and said the complete opposite about the food availability... and then a third person finally took my order... but I had to repeat what I want 3 times with intervals of 5-10 min each. After at least 40 min, I was able to go away with the food... if only it had been tasty I could be happy... It was quantity over quality. I would definitively not recommend that place.More

Wow! If I can give 0 stars, I would. This restaurant is absolutely horrible. I ordered delivery from them and as I am from out of town and live in a condo building, I requested that they call me at the lobby. But, apparently they...don't even know how to dial a long distance number as they couldn't reach me because they didn't put a 1 in front of my number before dialling. When I called the restaurant, they didn't pick up but the 5th time they did saying that they couldn't do anything because their restaurant was now closed. Wasted a hour and half of my life and I waited in the lobby for 40 minutes for them. Do you really want your food to be made by someone who's too stupid to know that you should put a 1 in front of a long distance number? Horrible service. Didn't even apologize. Don't know how to dial a phone number or pick up their phones.More

I have yet to visit their location, but I had the opportunity to try their jerk chicken and beef/chicken patties at a catered event! I already have been meaning to check out this place, but now I REALLY need to go. The food I tried...was so flavourful! I'm already craving it againMore

The most cruel thing that Boom J's is cook their Jerk Chicken outdoors where the smoke will slither down the street and hook into your taste buds. I have yet to try the Jerk Chicken, as I order the Goat Roti which is delicious, especially...with a little (and I mean little) homemade hot sauce. (ask for it) Not somewhere you want to eat in, but great take-out and I promise to try that Jerk Chicken on my next visit.More

It was great for your budget to eat. I did not like the coconut cookies and they taste awful. The jerk chicken was good not too spicy. However, the cashier was not too friendly. I said goodbye and thank you and she just looked away...and did not say anything at all. The food is okay here but I do not know about friendliness of the staff.More

Boom J's is a small place, not much for eating and there is no ambiance. But their Rotis are tops. While the jerk chicken roti is very good the goat roti is fantastic! Good size portions and not expensive. Go for the food and take...out.More

Got dinner from here last night....the jerk chicken platter. The place in nothing fancy... It really wouldn't be nice to have a sit down dinner here. However the food really was delicious, chicken was packed with flavour....the rice was also nice...the plantains weren't bad. However...the portions were a little small.. Still we enjoyed the meal and will surely go back.More

Great Jamaican/Caribbean restaurant! Much better than any other I've tried. Love their jerk chicken roti, so tasteful, bursting with flavour, juicy and packed, HUGE! Perfect for an afternoon stop or take out, they close quite early (9pm on fridays?! ), not much of a dinning...area but they still have space to sit down and eat but nothing fancy, styrofoam containers and plastic cutlery.... Free drink with check-in on yelp and a 25% off on facebook (print a coupon). Their patties are from Mr.Pattie, too much dough and bland inside, not spicy at all. Tons of traffic on the 20 to go and come back from there so find a better route... Very nice owner, very friendly. We ate there twice and brought more back home, this food gets even better after a few hours marinating in the fridge. Tried their jumbo chicken wings, jerk chicken, patties, chicken roti...but to me, the BEST, the nasty good one is the jerk chicken roti. Delicious!More
