Unable to eat here on this visit, there is sign on the door advising they are closed for personal reasons. I wish them well and hope they are back for our next visit.

My favourite restaurant in Lagos and always go whenever I’m in Town. We were told last visit they will be shut May and June due to illness. I wish you a speedy recovery and can’t wait until you’re open again.

I hope all is well with the owners. This is a fantastic restaurant we’ve visited many times over the years and would love to go again when in Lagos this summer. Do you know when it will reopen? All the best
