We have taken out food from the Caribbean Plate. The chicken is really good. Service is nice. More a fast food place than a restaurant, but nice space.

By far the best Caribbean food I've EVER had. Initially, I wasn't sure what to expect but I left full and very satisfied. They give you plenty of food (worth the price) and the taste is amazing. I'll definitely come back again.

I was told by a friend to try this place. He said I would not be disappointed. That was an understatement. When I got there I was greeted by a very friendly owner named Rod. He gave me some samples of his food and every one was amazing. I now stop by on my way to work once a week... More

Some of these reviews on Trip Advisor are for the old Caribbean plate restaurant. Not the new one. They should be deleted by trip advisor because they do not at all represent what the Caribbean Plate is now. The restaurant has been purchased by another owner (Ron) and the experience has completely changed. The restaurant serves jamaican dishes now such... More

This new place is awesome in Falls Church on Arlington border ! Authentic Jamaican cuisine! I had the escovitch fish which was fried to perfection with the perfect amount of seasoning. It was a fresh whole red snapper. Head and all. It came with flavorful rice and peas and steamed cabbage and carrots. My friend had the curried chicken tori... More

I live in the area and have passed this restaurant many times but never tried it until last night. I'm so glad I finally stopped in and this will definitely not be the last time. The woman behind the counter and the chef were so gracious and friendly. I am not familiar with Jamaican cuisine so they answered my questions... More

We love (loved) Caribbean Plate for our F.C. Weekend fast food cravings. The meat pies (Jamaican and Columbian) and the saltenias, plus their wonderful fruit smoothies were quality choices and never disappointed. BUT I went in today after being away for many months and the menu, or should I say the recipes have completely changed - and not for the... More

I discovered this restaurant in my Entertainment Book. Although my intention was to take advantage of the offer for beef patties, I could not resist the chance to get a Chicken Roti. Both the Roti and the Ginger Beer I washed it down with were great and reasonably priced. I look forward to trying the Beef Patties on another visit.
