A warm welcome awaits as you pass from the unlovely interior of the Ceddi Plaza shopping centre into this tastefully decorated, open-plan restaurant. A pianist was playing the night we ate there, adding to the ambience. He even continued throughout the darkness of a power cut!

The starters were amazing. I recommend the mini dosas, and I've never before in my life seen or eaten cashew fritters: a must. We were less impressed with the mains. The cocktails weren't very strong, but then again, they weren't very expensive!

Centrally Located in the City.
Has a nice ambience with good piano being played.
Service Waiters are warm and cordial in behavior.
Food was disappointing considering the reviews.

If you live in Nigeria, or at least frequent it, you know that getting really good service is just about impossible.
Finding a restaurant with really good food isn't easy either.
And finding a place that's pleasant, clean, nicely decorated and actually has some ambiance - well that's really rare.
So finding all 3 in one place was wonderful!
Been back 3 or 4 times already, sent all my friends, too.
The chicken pieces in yogurt (forgot the name) is a great starter, as are the crab samosas.
Grated paneer with spices is an excellent vegeterian dish.

Fabulous food, service and value for money. Try everything, but don't miss out on the Vadas, mini-Dosas, lamb cutlets and crab samosas to start. The Mangalorian lamb curry also a must. Lovely dining room. The restaurant is a joint-affair with Nkoyo (2) so there's another whole menu of great food for anyone who doesn't like Indian food. Takeaways or leftovers packed nicely for a few bucks extra.
