Why we love it?

Named after a term used by Rastafarians as a friendly greeting meaning ‘good’ or ‘nice’, Irie Shack serves authentic Caribbean cuisine and in particular, Jamaican food. With branches in both Cathays and Cardiff Bay, posters featuring reggae music icons are plastered all over the walls, mellow reggae music plays in the background, and a stunning sunset is painted onto a wall in a heated garden.
Expect popular Jamaican dishes like jerk chicken, ackee and saltfish, brown stew chicken, callaloo, curried goat and rice n’ peas. To wash all that down, sip on an Caribbean grapefruit soda known as Ting, or relax with a Red Stripe. Yeah mon!
