“Massive Portions”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

If you're looking for local dishes served in large portions, this is where you wanna be. The food comes on time and the price is OK for the portion that is served. You can eat in or take away the food, they have provision for parking but it gets filled quick during rush hours (e.g lunch breaks). They do not open on Sundays. The restaurant setting is like that of an open cafeteria (open space with lots of tables and chairs) though nicer, you walk in and find a table to sit and the waiters come over to take your order. They have another section upstairs.

“Good African Food”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Jevinik is a great place to find the best of local cuisine. The food is very good and is served promptly. For: Ambience is good and the restaurant is located in the city center. Against: Rather pricey...worth it, if you can afford it.

“Delicious Nigerian Cuisine”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

I've been to this restaurant about 4 times in all, and I've done a number of takes-away, none of which I'd been disappointed. I even took my boss from Lagos on the last occasion, and he assured he'd return there on his next trip.
I won't say they're the best in the food business, but Jevinik gets you fed with good local dishes. With the tendency to be underestimated in the ability to satisfy your hunger, the food - especially the soup - has you taking swallows after swallow until you suddenly discover you're well-fed and have enjoyed every morsel.
If you're the homely type, you want to take the soup home and there make your own choice gruel with which the soup goes down nicely.

Try the white soup with chicken. Try the white soup with chicken. Try the white soup with chicken. Got that? ;-) And try it local style, dip your fingers in the warm water bowl with soap and eat with your hands. you won't regret. And if you do, email me, perhaps you were just having a bad day. :-)

“Great food for Locals and Foreigners ”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

The restaurant was neat which is really important. I had pounded yam and egusi soup( traditional Nigerian food) it was sooooo good, really delicious. The rice was also great. The food did not take so long to arrive and the staffs were nice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for family, business or friend hangouts.
