My favourite is the jerk chicken, I get it every time go. However, the last three times I went there was no jerk chicken left which makes sense because it's so good. This place is usually packed every time I go, but it's worth the wait for the jerk chicken and jerk pork. I've also tried their curry goat, but it wasn't that good. The food also isn't that spicy if your looking for something with... more

I go here 'cause it's close to me. Most of the servers are hit or miss attitude-wise, especially when it's busy. One time it was -7 outside, they put my order in a brown paper bag. I kindly asked the lady (who shall remain nameless) to put it in a plastic bag instead (like they're supposed to) so it's easier to carry to avoid frostbite and even the Lord above felt that ratchet piece of cut-eye... more

Some friends said this place is known for their jerk pork. Finally made it over and ordered the small portion with rice and peas. When I received the box, it felt a comparable weight to a newborn baby. Came back to the office and it completely filled a large plate - and it wasn't 90% rice either, there was a lot of pork.

The pork was very tender and well seasoned and even a unique taste. There... more

Best jerk I've had.

I often come here for the jerk pork. It's the best jerk pork I've ever had. for $7.50 (+HST), you get a half sized container absolutely packed to the brim with jerk pork and rice and peas. They also give you a small container of coleslaw that I like to mix into the rice when I eat.

The jerk flavour at Portland Jerk is unlike a lot of other places where the focus is on the... more

The best jerk chicken I have tried is here. Try there jerk chicken with the jerk sauce and their hot sauce poured all over your chicken if you like the spice. You will never go anywhere else believe me! There is one lady taller skinny and wears head scarf she is always smiling and pleasant to talk to. I must say though another lady who is heavier set and slow walking kind of sends off a rude... more

I've been wanting to add a review about Portland Jerk for a while. My opinion - this is the best Jamaican restaurant (take out) in Brampton. I usually get a variety of different dishes, from oxtail to curry goat to jerk chicken and more, and I am never disappointed. Food is always flavourful with the right amount of spice. The meat is tender. I wish I had pictures to show you. I would highly... more

I love this place! Especially on Tuesdays when you can get jerk chicken special for only $5. Spend the extra dollar to get the amazing coleslaw. I find the staff to be very nice and attentive. If you get the pleasure of being served by Gary, the owner,your experience may be enhanced. Remember this is not a dine in restaurant. There's a few bar stools if you need to eat on the run. I cannot... more

Portland Jerk is amongst one of the best jerk places in B-Town, it only really comes down to two places either Gem's or Portland. Portland's Jerk first off is not as spicy as Gem's sometimes Gem's can be overly spicy on one piece. The chicken itself is tender and almost falls off the bone and you can taste the jerk seasoning right to the bone! Their ox tail is equally as good as Gem's and they... more

I go here with my co-workers on a weekly basis. We love the jerk chicken. Very tender, and the rice is really good as well. Rice comes with the chickpeas, and we usually ask to get some sauce on the rice. The chicken is full of taste. The consistency of the sauce is not always the same... sometimes they make it a bit too spicy (for my co-workers). I enjoy it spicy anyways, so for me that's... more

The best jerk pork around. I drive out of my way to have the jerk pork dinner with rice and peas covered in Ox tail gravy. The coleslaw and hot sauce are also second to none. It's a small place with limited seating in the front. Gary the owner is friendly and jokes around, having said that, the rest of the staff needs to learn from Gary what customer service is about. I find them unfriendly and... more

This place used to be amazing. Large portion sizes and very tasty.

More recently, the meat portion sizes have been getting more bland and smaller and smaller. You get more rice than anything else, whereas before they would pile on meat and I wouldn't be able to finish it, now i'm just left with a ton of rice.

Also, aside from the one gentleman (I believe the owner) the staff are fairly... more

I've been to Portland Jerk many times before but for the 1st time I tried the oxtail w/ rice and peas. There are only a few seats by the door so it is mainly take-out only. I dropped in for lunch with my girlfriend and she had our usual stew chicken.

I was excited to say the least since I love meat(s) closer to the bone (i.e. ribs) because there is more flavor imo. I was very satisfied with my... more
