Miss Lily's

Reggae music and delicious bites at this Jamaican hot spot

Time Out Says

It may feel strange to find a slice of Jamaica just off Sheikh Zayed Road, up a lift in a five-star hotel and through a closed door leading to a small, secluded spot. But that’s how Dubai surprises us, and more importantly, Miss Lily’s.

If there was ever a place in the city that gives us a taste of what the night scene in Jamaica is all about, this lively spot shows it. Not just in the way it looks, sounds (thanks to thumping reggae tunes) and feels with its constant party vibes, but through its authentic dishes.

The island’s most famous dishes are all present, no less, with everything from its famous Jerk Chicken (which, by all accounts, is a no-brainer to get) and staple Jamaican sides to its more traditional seafood delights.

But Miss Lily’s world famous jerk grilled chicken aside, have a look further afield at its menu and you’ll find a hugely under-appreciated dishes that threaten to steal the spotlight. By that, we mean its stews. A mix of beautiful tender meats put together with either fluffy potatoes or rice, these home-style dishes are not to be missed.

Now, is there a particular time that’s best for dining at Miss Lily’s? Certainly. Once it hits the double digits of the evening, the venue turns more into a club rather than a place to tuck into its delicious dishes. Because of its small space, let’s just say it isn’t ideal to be eating while there’s a full-blown dancefloor crowded with jiving people right next to you, but if you’re up for a party – you know where to go.

Don’t let that take away from Miss Lily’s appeal, as it’s a spot that’s more than worthwhile to try out each of its dishes. And hey, if you’re after a dance after, just stick around.
