The Sherlaton remains the most authentic Indian restaurant year after year, no frills, just great food served by friendly waiters. The place never lets us down!

Sherlaton has been around for a while and the food is great. The prices are fantastic for a Victoria Island restaurant (which normally is cut throat). The service is friendly but slow. They make up for it by being thoughtful with helping you make your choice though. Ambience is not great but I don't want to suggest a renovation cause... More

This place has the best food for the best price! The quality and quantity of food have been very good every time we come to this restaurant! It's a down-to-earth place.

The food quality is good, yes. The service is far from good. Noisy, expensive. Not a great experience overall.

The very first night on the day i landed in lagos for the first time in 1986, i went to Sherlaton restaurant which at that time was a standalone restaurant on Awolowo road. Since over 30 years it has maintained its reputation as the best Indian restaurant in Lagos. The menu has not changed much over time but every few... More

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,...

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
