The place is very simple and has absolutely no ambiance whatsoever. The service is adequate but friendly. However, what's absolutely divine about this place is the food. They have a wide range from selections and you certainly can find something that meets your dietary requirement. Traffic around that area is quite bad so I usually use their free delivery service,...

First you have to find the place, When you finally have the right location, you must control yourself not to run away and when you have passed the entrance door on the back courtyard, you understand that you are in a real indian restaurant with good and authentic indian food and very rare, a professional service and cherry on the...

This restaurant is located behind a run down hotel. It is an Indian restaurant run by Indians with some local waiters. The food is very tasty, though not as spicy as most Europeans or locals would expect. The food comes quickly and well presented, and for Lagos standards is at a reasonable price. There is no bar as such, and... More

Best Indian Food in town. Bit scruffy on the inside and sometimes food is received in wrong order, but all part oif the fun.

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 different - their chat... 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.
