The food here is so delicious, we came 2 days in a row! We were visiting Jamaica for the first time and the owner went out of her way to make us feel welcomed - she even helped us take a public bus to the Blue Mountain area (thereby helping us avoid having to take a very expensive taxi ride!)....

took the wife there to have lunch and it was a day at the doctor. It took forever for someone to attend to our table and when they did it took another forever before the food was served. The environment is far from being an oasis. I used to visit this place when they were located at Hope Gardens and... More

When in the botanical gardens this restaurant was great. Unfortunately the new venue is terrible. Small, hard to find, dingy, limited menu and don't even do the wonderful ginger beer! The food is fine but no air conditioning, only a few tables and hardly any staff ( for hardly any custoners). A shame.

I have not been to the actual Ashanti restaurant but I do use to purchased online lunches there. I do not have a problem with the food, seasoned nice and tasty for vegetarian meals. I stopped ordering from this restaurant because they delivered my 12:30 lunch at 2:30 pm without any apologize. After mention this to my friend they have... More

The new venue for this place is where the former Rib Cage used to be. The food was average, the service indeed quite unsatisfactory. We ordered fresh juices and one main each. The juices arrived quickly and the bean stew came with them! It was at least another fifteen minutes before the other dish (Tofu pockets) arrived with the two... More

This previous restaurant operator sold up a while back and it is now under a different name and different management with a totally different range of food on offer. The new set up is much less successful and the service is pretty poor.

I love Ashanti! This litte restaurant is located in Hope Gardens, Kingston, Jamaica (near the zoo). The setting is adorable, you sit in the middle of the park. I love their simple, yet nice decor. The food is ital, it's vegetarian....I'm not a vegetarian, but I still love ital food! Don't hesitate to ask about their dishes, they're very friendly... More

I used to go to Ashanti all the time when it was located at Hope Gardens. The food was excellent, and it was a lovely laid back setting especially for the weekends. I was really disappointed to learn they had closed and would be re-opening "soon". In Kingston that usually means closed for good. They are now re-opened in the... More

I have eaten here a few times. The restautant is located in the famous Hope Gardens. Food is quite innovative and has a very popular lunch crowd following. A great place to have lunch in a wonderful setting.
