The buffalo chicken wings, lamb ribs, biryani rice and d nan bread drizzled with butter r my favourite to eat. Nice restaurant. My only problem is the ventilation especially upstairs. The heat and smoke could get a little bit uncomfortable.

Good, tasty food, nice ambiance and friendly staff! A great hang out and dinner place for my office team. One of the oldest restaurants in Abuja but it has maintained its high quality and good service! I will recommend it to others.
