Ku Yah Restaurant in Poughkeepsie (Jamaican & West Indian cuisine)

Just a heads up about a new restaurant I passed by a few weeks ago. I haven't tried it yet, but their menu looks pretty good. It's on 6 Raymond Avenue on the right hand side, right before you turn left onto Rt. 55.

Here's a link to their website:

    i haven't had any of their meals, but i've had their lunch special jerk chicken, with rice/peas, and a plantain and a can of soda - 7.52 after tax.

    you can have a very light dinner after that filling lunch - 2 pieces of chicken, very tasty.

    edit: there are 4 jamaican places i know of in POK: this one, sylvia's (just off route 55/arterial west), reggae boy (never tried) and janet's jerk (back on academy, where karibbean kafe failed).

      Which Jamaican place(s) would you recommend? It's been a crazy couple of weeks, but now that things are winding down for summer, I'm going to try to stop by soon.

        i can't tell much of a difference between sylvia's and ku yah on their jerk chicken; had no complaints at janet's. ku yah has a few more dishes on their menu and is more of a restaurant, so i'd suggest going there. i just haven't ventured off to try the goat, fish (cuttle?) or other stuff yet.
