Magnificent Indian - But Try Different Things

Sherlaton is an old favorite, the best Indian food in Lagos, and some of the best Indian food I have had on five continents. Note, I said best Indian food - you don't go to Sherlaton for the ambiance, decor or service - you go to eat. If you really want to experience nirvana, try something... read more

I can't recall the name of the food but it was the best lamb leg in town. The leg well marinated with spice. It was large portion that I wished I could finish it all. I didn't try other foods. Price is good. The best thing about this restaurant is it is open 24 hours. I think it is the... More

Although first appearances doesn't appeal to you, this is a typical case of don't judge a book by its cover. The décor is old and much need of attention. A table is quickly cleared and organized for you and your party. The waitron is assigned and immediately places the drink order. The food is always fresh. The Indian chefs prepares... More

At one time the food at Sherlaton was exceptional and great value for money. Nowadays i would rate it as a poor second to Spice Bar for Indian food. The atmosphere is non-existent. The only good thing is that it is one of the best restaurant that is open 24 hours.

A group of 7 of us went for dinner, it was really very nice. Quick service, food was extremely tasty and the price was reasonable. We shared the lamb leg, black Dahl and some veggie dishes, as well as garlic roti and a mixed entree. It was delicious. I'd certainly go back as we all enjoyed our evening.

Great Indian food, well prepared, good range of menu. Do takeaway as well, delivering to most areas of the islands. Restaurant is quite quiet, but go with a group and you'll have a good meal!

From a food perspective every dish was well prepared and above all authentic and tasty, not overpowered by chilli but a perfect blend and balance of flavours. The Menu is comprehensive but not overly complex, and as well as the traditional favourites there is enough to provide a decent of variation. The service was solid and the value for money... More

Thought the restaurent looks outdated from ourside and there is not much of ambience, I visit this restaurent most frequently then the other restaurents in the city. If you dont care much for the ambience, this is the place to go. Food is 100% indian (especially mumbai as most of the chefs are from Mumbai, so I get homely feeling).... More

Good Indian food with plenty of options to choose from. Indian breakfast buffet is really nice if you stay nearby. Ambience could have been better.
