Who We Are, How It Started, How It's Going

The name ‘West to West’ represents the cultural heritage of our cuisine. Sierra Leone rests on the coast of West Africa, while Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica are tropical islands in the West Indies/ Caribbean. In 2018, we decided to bring our rich cultural blend to Abu Dhabi. Click here to find out how it’s been going so far!

Best Jamaican restaurant in the UAE, hands down. Also, serve Guyanese and Sierra Leonean food. Real fresh and tasty authentic food which is served quick, coming from the UK that is a rare thing hahaha! Big respect. Edit: they don't serve Guyanese food! Food's so food It got me confused hahaha! Nuff respect!
West to West is located in Al Danah - Zone 1 - Abu Dhabi. West to West serves authentic Caribbean cuisine with a twist of different flavours and spices that tantalise the tastebuds. We ate at a tiny restaurant in the heart of the city where fresh dishes are made and served to perfection. We enjoyed eating the jerk chicken that came with tiny dishes of sauces and salads. We thoroughly enjoyed the delectable plantain, chickpeas, jerk chicken and wings, bread and rice mixed with brown beans. These dishes had flavours of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, ginger etc which gave a unique taste to the Caribbean food we ordered. The cherry on top is that the prices are so reasonable. We experienced many different food influences stemming from the indigenous population of the islands. A wonderful experience!

Food was extremely good and loved the jerk wrap. Keep up the great work guys and I would suggest to have more space for seating there. But apart from that my experience was fantastic

Love the West to West Kitchen Resturant, even call them family! The service there is great and the team are friendly & welcoming, with every meal I've had there has been fresh and perfect. As a new Nigerian and lover of Caribbean food to the UAE from London it's been a hunt to find a certified place that can live up to the standard from home, but this place does that. Offering their fusion of West African/Caribbean flavours, I'm never disappointed when I visit, and make it a priority whenever I'm in Abu Dhabi to stop off there to get me a top-up!
