The meals are exquisite and the service is excellent. The atmosphere is one of leisure though it can be a little stuffy in there!

“Nice food, nice space, paid in dollars but with some issues”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

Enjoyed dinner with a work colleague. Popular spot with tables filling as early evening progressed. Food was nice and enjoyable with right amount of heat. Local beer was good. Great high ceilings but lack of fans/no aircon made it a bit too sticky after a while. Note for other foreigners re payment: Before we sat, asked it I could pay in dollars which the waiter said was fine. At end when I paid the waiter began refering to the date on the US $20 notes I provided saying that certain notes were not acceptable because of their date. Stated that I had never heard of such criteria and that they should have stated that when I asked about the form of payment required. Said that was all the money I had and that the exchange rate they were using should more than copmensate for any issues they may have. Also said I had paid in a similar way at Dunes restaurant and there were no issues there. It wasn't aggressive conversation, just factual and it ended up with the waiter accepting the money.

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

Meh, I'm not sure what all the hype is about. I found the quality of food here to be just average. The paneer wasn't fresh and tasted like pre-packaged, frozen paneer. Nothing outstanding, but of course I don't come to Abuja expecting outstanding Indian food. The atmosphere is nice and lively; a good place to go with friends/groups on a Friday or Saturday evening.
