Mon, this house is pumping! Serving not only great food but a very interesting selection of drinks, Jamaica House has gained a reputation for being amongst the top ten restaurants in Sydney’s Newtown. Their small menu ensures freshness of some very traditional Jamaican dishes, including Jerk Pork and Pineapple Skewers. Vegetarians can try the Crispy Jamaican Spiced Pastry.
The drinks menu includes the Zombie, a Banana Colada and the Rockafella. If they don’t put you in a Jamaican mood, what will?

It does not get any homey than that, ensuring freshness and flavours you would be hard pressed to duplicate at home, even if your an accomplished cook yourself.
