Best Sushi ever

The sushi at Izanagi is some of the best you will ever eat. The sushi chef is a true master. It isn't cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but it is well worth the effort of visiting and it does come as quite a shock having such a high quality meal in Lagos where you might not expect it.

This place is a hands down winner when it comes to Japanese food in Lagos. The service (a constant let down in Lagos) is pretty good, the food is scrumptious and the presentation is perfect. The menu is exhaustive and one has plenty options for all kinds of seafood, meats and even vegetarian sushi and soba. We have never had... More

Tacking in on a side road is Tokyo in Africa. A rare gem from the moment you enter the walk across the sky bridge to the pink interior and the exhaustive menu. The meals are quick and the waiters knowledgeable and helpful to choose a meal. The music was right even though we were a large group service was speedy.

We had a number of vegetarian guests with us and I was quite surprised at the vegetarian variety. Very comfortable and pleasant ambience. Overall a good experience.

Izanagi.....interesting menu, nice ambience, beautiful decor, good for intimate dinner dates. Loved it but unfortunately, as I am not a fan of sushi, cannot say much about the sushi though my friend was ecstatic about it 😜!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ the appetizers and definitely will go back!😎👏😀. Also, their drinks are nice too!🍸

It is rare to find a restaurant in Lagos, that is not trying to rip you off. Izanagi, is clean and comfortable, with a good menu at reasonable prices (for Lagos). The food is well prepared and has an authentic taste.

I like my sushi and this place is a quality establishment. It is always busy and the food is diverse and of an exceptional standard. The portions are not so big but that's always the same story when one orders sushi. They also do hot food and that can't faulted either. The parking outside is not the best but that's... More
