Fresh squeezed juice on the sweet side. Good service and ambience in the venue
The food here is delicious. Get the jerk chicken with chutney marmalade and the Ackee dip & plantain chips!
Phenomenal Jamaican food in a great environment with super nice servers. The juice bar adjacent to it is also superb and Melvin is the nicest guy!
The roti is just like a big burrito. The curry chicken empanada is key~~~
In case it's confusing: roti = burrito, patties = empanadas
Pretend it's your birthday... You'll have the best time in the whole place.
It's true - best jamaican food in NYC
The plantains are to die for... Definitely get them.
Original home of the best jerk chicken in the city. The organic salad with the fish has a great flavor and a tangy sweetness from the mango that is refreshing and satisfying. Not too sweet - spot on!
Hungry and in need of some delicious flavor? Get the curry chicken roti. It is sure to satisfy on both fronts.
I could eat their jerk chicken for days. 😍😍😍😍
On my first day of restaurant week Miss Lily's gave to me: jerk corn, watermelon & feta salad, jerk chicken and dark n' stormy rum cake! The servings are generous and the staff is very friendly!
Really good vibes for dinner. Loud music, dim lighting, tasty cocktails, cool food selection. Watermelon salad really refreshing, good fish tacos
Oxtail stew if you are really hungry
The jerk chicken salad was hearty and healthy.
LOVE AT FIRST BITE: Jerk chicken, jerk pork, oxtail, sangria, rice and beans... Everything! Laid-back yet festive vibe with attentive and fun service. Can't wait to be back for brunch!
Incredible patty melt!
You will love any of the smoothies
You get a lot of food for your money and they make all their own juices.
Jerk grilled corn, Jamaican sampler
Conflicted. Food is awesome. Service sucks! Waitress had 2 responses 1) It'll take me 5-10min to determine what's in the vegetable stew, 2) Let me take a stab at what's in the stew. Do not come here f
Very good Caribbean food.
The best part was the corn!
Jerk grilled corn, jerk chicken, slow roasted pimento short rib, mac and cheese, callaloo
Jerk chicken all the way 👌
Good vibes, excellent food.
A truly diverse restaurant crowd in Manhattan is much appreciated!! Delicious Jamaican food in a fun environment.
Stop messing around. Get the Jerk Chicken Sandwich ya ninny.
Melvin's Juice Box is actually open for lunch. The well spiced jerk chicken platter is a 1/2 chicken so plenty to share
Shared menu for two people is fast and tasty!
Try the Ting A Ling beer cocktail, grapefruit juice and Red Stripe over ice. Yummm!
The food is great, really cool crowd, and the chillest vibe ever.
Beef/chicken patties FTW. The platter options give a generous helping.
Awkward service (she asked us how much we planned to tip) but great food! Jerk sandwich
Oxtail stew is delicious (better than the chicken, which is still very good)!!
Currently smashing a jerk chicken (spicy as hell, but not in a needless way) roti. Food is still fusion-y Caribbean but was better & more authentic than I've ever had here before. Also: great coffee.
Rass hot jerk sauce on everything!
for a quick and cheap meal, grab one of the rotis for $9-12
Jerk chicken. Roti if they have it. Jerk corn. Ableton Jamaican rum. Short ribs.
Order the Jamaican sampler. It is a feast that includes Curry goat, oxtail stew jerk chicken & callaloo. Get the grilled jerk corn too!

The coconut water with the coconut meat blended in is amazing
That pepper I ate was wayyyy too hot!
