Definitely try the homemade ginger beer! The oxtail beef and jerk chicken was absolutely great. Norah was super inviting and friendly. She really makes the place.

If you want authentic delicious Jamaican food look no further than Norah's Irie (all right in Jamaican). My wife and I have been to Jamaica six times over the last few years and love the food. If you know Jamaican food check out their website...More
