I have been a regular client to cactus for years. I have also noticed the continous improvement on staffing food choices and decor. A very warm ambience. Whatever is on your mind when you go in there you fit in. Their festival salad and houmous with minced beef in olive oil and warm flat bread is my favourite. Great place.

Excellent food, nice ambience and a very family friendly restaurant. The outdoor children's playground makes it even engaging for kids while the family dines. They have a wide range of food but no Nigerian dish on the menu.

Cactus is neat,and it's very environmentally friendly(good ambiance)....the place cut across both the rich and the average for it's quite affordable....it's my personal opinion that if you are a club sandwich person,pls. visit Cactus for the best....their staff are very neat and polite- I would say they are civil and I give kudos to its management.For a well organised event,Cactus...

My first time there was very enjoyable, the food was great, service was great, very conducive environment. Serving size matched my appetite. I've visited several more times afterwards with my family, and I foresee another visit soon! Really nice place.
