A True Taste of Jamaica

“Cooking is at the heart of what I do. Rice and Things is not only a restaurant, it is an experience. My dream is that every moment that you spend with us is an authentic taste of Jamaica. You will feel my heart and soul in the atmosphere, the food and the restaurant”

Rice & Things is a lifelong dream of Chef Neufville, a very passionate Jamaican Chef, who believes in authenticity and strives for excellence.
What started out as a take-away referred to by many as a ‘hole in the wall’, became the Rice & Things Exclusive Jamaican Restaurant and Bar.

The Rice and Things team work tirelessly to give you nothing but full satisfaction and value for money. We pride ourselves on the strength of your experience with us.  We hope that through our service and dishes we can strengthen ties within our communities.

“Our aim is for you to experience authentic Jamaican hospitality.  Our goal is excellence!”

Easily the nicest Caribbean food I've ever had. Generous portions and the chance to explore different options by going half and half on your main. Love this place and will be back when I'm next in Bristol.
The food speaks for itself just loook at the picture. Honestly Rice & Things is the best Jamaican takeaway spot in Bristol!! The lovely staff fill up the box everytime. I would recommend ordering the jerk chicken or fried chicken meal (thank me later) also their coleslaw is the best I have ever tried so order that. As someone who does my research when it comes to ordering food and is a foodie myself try out this takeaway and taste how good it is for yourself. I do wish in the near future that Rice & Things will have a delivery option.
