This place is a gem hidden away in the back alleys of Lagos; literally behind a small random nondescript hotel.But the food was special and plenty of booze for the post work happy hour with colleagues. I found the prices to be a little on the high end of the scale by local standards but if you're a visiting expat like me, it was well within my budget and I felt it was good value.

I was there with colleagues and one of them knew the manager so perhaps there was some 'extra hospitality' but the service was spot on and attentive. Beers were cold and spirits stocked.

As for the food, I highly recommend the 'sarson ka saag', a leafy green gravy made from spinach or mustard greens best served with rotis. The naans and other breads were also great.

Very crowded place.
Noise was too much.
A spider was running on the ceiling.
Food was more than one hour late, and was far below expectations.
Do not visit tjia place, imstead go to spice route, it is very close by.

It's tucked away behind the newcastle hotel on adeola odeku in victoria island , in the same compound. parking can be an issue as the car park serves several entities in the same compound
At first glance the restaurant itself looks very canteen like, a bit dark in terms of lighting no fancy decor so it may not be too inviting. but once you get tucked in you will not bother about it.
Food wise , the indian food is really delicious with lots of variety. They also do chinese, Nigerian and continental cuisine. prices are very reasonable and portions generous
it can get very busy in the evening when service can become a bit slow
excellent mutton samosa and their tandoori grill stuff and nan bread is delicious.
definitely worth visiting if you want a taste of india and value for money!

I think this place has some of the nicest Indian food in lagos served fresh and hot. The bar is quite decent. Overall value for money. Just wish the ambiance was a little better.

Absolutely amazing Indian food. The menu offers a vide selection of traditional food, so there is something for everyone.
Not only is the food quality in top, but it's also very affordable. I'll for sure be back when i'm returning to Lagos
