Hey Mon, how bout a little jerk chicken. Food takes my back to Rick's Cafe on the cliffs of Negril during my wild years. Lots of locals. The know a good thing when they see it. Authentic.

The smell when you enter the place was amazing. We found the food to be very good and the service was excellent. The only down side of the experience was that the restaurant was very small so they didn't have many tables and thus the wait was about 40 minutes. Luckily, the food was worth the wait!

Small funky hole-in-the wall bar restaurant, eclectic Caribbean ambiance, with very good Jamaican food, and reasonable prices. Busy place. They also have a good variety of gluten-free dishes. Great for lunch. Short on draft beer selection.

Recommended by a local, Nine Mile is in the middle of a quaint Asheville neighborhood. It looks like a casual bar but the menu is truly impressive. We started out with the nachos (yumm - melted Gouda), which were delish and ended up splitting the Raggedy Road entree- Cajun tilapia with a coconut cream (non-dairy) sauce with basmati rice and...

Some of the best food ever at a great price! We ate here four times during our recent trip to Asheville. Vegan/vegetarian options are top notch - loved the tempeh in the salad. Eating there is very intimate and casual, but their take out is excellent too. We really appreciate the eco friendly containers.

Amazing. Delicious. Fresh and local ingredients blended with Jamaican love. Made fresh, even the salad dressings are hand made and easily adaptable for food allergies (I have Celiac disease). Rotating seasonal menus so great for locals as we frequent this neighborhood favorite often and always have new items to try. Servings are hearty, and couples can easily fill up on... More

Finally, after hearing so many good things about this restaurant, we went. The Montford Ave. location was packed with the line going out the door. The smells were heavenly. But, I have to be honest. The dinner was disappointing. Granted, I didn't order what most people probably do, as I am pescatarian, but still... The chips with cheese were "ok",... More

fabulous food. And I'm fussy/critical of restaurant food. Also has a good beer menu. The dinner menu is amazing. So many unusual and varied listings. Given that it's heavily Jamaican food it's spicy. But I've been there 3 times and it hasn't been an issue even though I'm a spicy wimp. Just tell the server when ordering. Every time it's... More
