    Marco Polo: If you fancy Chinese food

    by AC1 Written Aug 19, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the better Chinese restaurant in town. The closest to the taste back home or China. Of course, dont expect too much though as material are not easy to obtain locally.

    The ambience is one of the better one around and definitely up to standard in comparison the setting of any chinese restaurant in China.

    Try the lunch set No 5 if you ae there.

    Favorite Dish: Try the lunch set No 5 if you ae there.

  • Bar Africa: Truly African!

    by MikeOkiro Written Jun 19, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love to play pool, they have very good pool tables and plasma screen. People can chill out or dance to music and the decor is purely Nigerian and African style with paintings and arts and african crafts, really beautiful. I have never seen a place like this!

    Favorite Dish: Oh by the way their African food is delicious like Fish Pepper soup and rice. Lovely!

  • Chopstick: Chinese Food in Ikeja

    by ychia76 Updated Apr 20, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favorite topic is about food. There is a Chinese community in Nigeria. This is one of the restaurant that my dad goes to and he is a very picky person when it comes to food. He is a chef himself. If he says that it is good, I take his word for it.

    It is very good Chinese food with a little of experimentation because of using local ingredients. They do import if you have any request, but it will cost you arms and legs.

    Favorite Dish: This dish is an experimental dish. It is similar to a tofu dish but it is not made from soy, but made from milk. It is has a tofu texture and it is deep fried. Crunchy on the outside and silky smooth inside.

    Any chicken dish made from locally raised chicken that runs around the farm instead of caged in. The meat is very tender and chewy with real chicken flavor! After you taste a chicken from a 3rd world country ... those Foster Farm or caged chickens are just plain disgusting.

    Tantalizers and Mr. Biggs: Mouth watering delicacies

    by Paul-linus Written Mar 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These two Restaurants are the most popular and most frequented restaurants in the country. They are always busy as young guys with their babes as well as older men and women troop in there to have fun. The place is usually very cool and nice. In fact, if you are looking for a date, these two restaurants are the best place to find one.
    Things sold include, ice creams, cakes, rice (fried and boild) donuts, meat pie, minerals, chickens of all types, suya and other types of drinks.
    Don't miss these places if you find yourself in Nigeria. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    Favorite Dish: My facourite dish is fried rice and chicken. They know how to prepare the dish such that you would be tempted to ask for more like "Oliver twist."

  • Jade Palace: Mama's own

    by ychia76 Written Apr 20, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Okay, I will be bias because my mom owns this place with a few other Chinese. It is a very classy place and very spacious. You can definitely have a banquet in a white interior space. It has a clean feeling to it.

    Food is catered to the Nigerian taste. If you want real Chinese food with unaltered ingredients you have to travel else where like Hong Kong. So for a Nigerian standard it is great, but for Chinese standard it is so so. This I am not going to be bias about cause I love food. I rather pay hefty to eat great food.

    What I love is that it has a bar + cafe ... Volar ... love the name too ... on the bottom level of the building. So after you dine out why not hop to the bar and enjoy a drink and some music with live band playing and even dancing will do you good after eating.

  • LA SCALA: A new change

    by nahelb Written Dec 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A fantastic ambiance, one of the few places in lagos where restaurant has a beautiful view on a garden with secure parking within the famed Muson Center.
    Early this year a new chef was recruited, which has greatly improved quality and taste of the food now being served, with addition of the facelift given to the restaurant under the new management, makes LA SCALA second to none within the Lagos metropolis.Service is excellent and menu has a diversified choice of continental dishes.

    Favorite Dish: Dont miss the Sole Meuniere(Sole Fish in butter/lemon sauce),or the Kyle Locklash(Jumbo sized grilled prawns in garlic sauce).

    Churrasco: Very good eats

    by mpanizza Written Sep 4, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In a town of VERY few decent eating options, this gem of a restaurant on the Lagoon is worth the $$. It's pretty much your typical Brazilian-themed restaurant where they serve you cuts of meat off the spit. Pretty good salad bar too.

    Lickies: Fast food

    by Soili Written Feb 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lickies is part of a chain of fast food restaurants. The food is mostly prepared of chicken. In some cases, just like in other fast food restaurants, there is a separate section serving African food. In that section there are often Nigerian traditional dishes.

    Favorite Dish: Food prepared of chicken.
