Relaxed atmosphere, great Jamaican food... – My boyfriend and I happened upon this place while shopping in Berkeley. We had the tilapia with rice & peas (red beans), fried dumplings and plantains. The food was great! I have many close Jamaican friends that are amazing cooks and the food at Jamaican Soul came very close to something that we would have eaten at their home. The spice is a little milder than I care for, but you can definitely add some spice with a little red pepper sauce. I would definitely recommend this restaraunt. We will be back for more the next time we are in Berkeley!

Tame and overcooked – My mother brought one dish home, b/c she wash so dissapointed with her food. Thus, this isn't a full review. I wish I could give a stellar review for the one chicken dish from Jamaican Soul, but what I had was just so-so; it wasn't spicy, not even particularly flavorful, and not even spicy, which I so expected and anticipaited. the chicken legs (two of them) were so sodden, stringy and lacking in flavour, and the vegetables were unrecognizable it was hard to discern what I actually should enjoy. I expected some rice and pigeon peas, and I didn't get that. I wanted to like this place so much, but I couldn't. But maybe it needs another chance, and now that I'm reviewing it, I think I'll try Jamaican Soul again, and I hope that I can say some better.
