I am one of the foremost Americas' best critics when it comes to non American foods. I love Island Spice it is the bomb and well hidden on 39th Street corner of Main. It's tucked in a old bank drive thru and its cute! well polished and tasteful. First question I ask in a ethnic restraunt is "where are you... More

Our family wanted Jamaican food and this was a great restaurant. The jerk chicken was very spicy, just the way I like it and the curry goat was seasoned nicely. I would visit again when we're in the area. I really wanted to try the red pea soup which is my favorite soups but it was not available, maybe next... More

My husband is Jamaican, and there really aren't any authentic Jamaican restaurants in Kansas City. On top of that, there is an authentic Jamaican restaurant in San Diego, CA called Island Spice that we totally love, so we decided to give the Kansas City Island Spice a try. What a huge mistake!!! The place was filthy, the brown stew and... More

Small in space, no public restroom/washroom, no waiter, no paper towel/napkin on the table, no alcohol and no fancy schmancy utensils... This list of 'disappointment' suddenly went away as soon as I put the food in my mouth. Who cares about all those? This place was mainly for take outs. Not a dine-in eatery. So you go in, study the... More

KC locals must stop by this hole-in-the-wall restaurant. Experience the ethnic foods: curried goat, jerk chicken, Escovich red snappers, cow foot soup, fish soup, ginger beer, ox tail, beef patties, rice & beans...you'll find something you'd like to try and come back for. The wait is terrible sometimes. It helps to call in and order ahead of time. The food... More

Delicious jerk chicken and the goat curry reminded me of my travels through Asia. This is a must-try! I'd go back just for the cabbage.

I asked my husband to pick up take out after work because I had heard great things about this place. The three of us really liked the food - we shared three dishes - braised beef, jerk chicken, curried goat. The braised beef was hands-down the best to me - so very tasty. Great sauce. My husband liked the goat... More
