The Door

If you’re having Jamaican food in Jamaica, Queens, the stuff better be authentic. Happily, the Door delivers on the classics. Jerk chicken is suitably fiery, escovitch (pickled snapper) is served with bammy (cassava); there’s even saltfish, the country’s national dish. The atmosphere is tropical chic: celery-colored walls, burgundy drapes and paintings of island scenes. Desserts such as black cake, a dense fruit cake, are awfully tasty, but the most delicious treat is a lowly side dish: fried sweet plantains.

The food is great but the service is a zero for me they served the coffee and the appetizer at the same time


I dont know what but last time I was at the doors take out. I wasn't happy with the price & amount of food but today they was on point. The price is lower and I was very satisfied with the amount of food. So will definitely be going back.

The food is delicious and the staff is awesome Both have been a customer for over 15 years and have seen their growth over the years.We have taken many friends, family and aquaintances of all nationalities, and they have never been disappointed. 10/6/13 took some new friends and they were so happy when one of the supervisors announced that the buffet would be removed in 5 minutes!Thats what you call great service.!!This is a 5 star diner!!


Great Place, but hard to communicate via telephone. Please something about it,

My husband and I had dinner there , it was our anniversary I could not ask for anything more. The staff was courteous ,professional and experience it's an exquisite authentic Jamaican cuisine for persons with good taste and class. What I like the most is the variety on the menu not the everyday Jamaican style cooking but the autencity and the culinary art of it. This is the finest Jamaican restaurant in the New York area. It was worth the trip from Brooklyn.
