I often wish we could split our reviews between the food and the service. I often feel it's wrong to punish the one because of the other.
Firstly, the food was really good. We were 3 people having dinner and ordered about 10 different small plates to share. These included Hummus, Baba Ganoush, Fatoush Salad, Lamb Kabob and Kibbeh to name a few. They all tasted really fresh, flavorful and were beautifully presented in a variety of decorative dishes. The accompanying flat breads were warm, freshly made and just delicious.
We started off with drinks in the outside area which was nice and cool after the rain and then went inside. I loved the decor and the atmosphere. As another reviewer wrote, you are almost transported to the Middle East, if you can ignore the Western Pop music playing ?
As for the service, the manager was really attentive and friendly but he can't be everywhere all the time. Drinks were forgotten, and we had to wave at the servers when we wanted refills of to order something else. As there were only 3 other tables besides us, I feel that they need to be a bit more aware. ( I also hate having to wave my arms like a mad person in a restaurant)
Definitely not a cheap evening out at 69 000Nira for 3 people (about $200 at today's exchange) but that's food and drink included.
