Service at the Chinese restaurant was good - friendly and quite accommodating. The food was tasty and varied with each dish having its own distinct flavor (contrary to some restaurants where the food, though presented differently, all seems to be cloned from the same base thus tasting similar). We were a group of 14 and everyone was well attended to... More

Decent menu, plenty of choice, but as other reviewers have said, it's just 'average' in terms of the food quality, I have had some great dishes here (dumplings, beef in black pepper etc.), but recently it's just been 'OK'. Price wise it's reasonable (for Lagos big hotels), but you get more value, quality and ambience at one of the smaller,... More

This restaurant in Oriental Hotel, like its sister "Mayumi", falls under the great food at affordable prices. The Chinese menu is very rich, with sizzling dishes as well, in Lagos where decent Chinese joints are rare to find. The dumplings are excellent, so is the crab. The availability of Australian white wine was also a plus. Had dinner there several... More

The BEST Chinese restaurant in Lagos. Good for the groups, family dinner and romantic dates. Big variety of Chinese cuisine with good service. Decent place with nice decor and ambiance. Classic music making good background. Nice lagoon view from the tables near windows. The portions are big enough to share. Also they have a private banquet room for the events.

Hadn't been here before but expected more from the location and view from the outside. Huge hotel but the restaurant and interior is a bit dated. The restaurant ambiance wasn't very nice at all. The food was okay though ... just okay. Overall average I think. Not sure I will be coming back to be honest as nothing stood out... More

I was taken here by a colleague who chose my food for me. Not a good idea! The place is beautiful and full of Chinese speaking people, so I presume it is really good and authentic. Sadly, my host picked all the things I do not like. The saving grace was the wonderful prawns, hot and spicy and the last... More

If youre expecting Mandarin Oriental then you probably need to revise your expectations. Its a massive hotel in Victoria Island with good location on the banks of the river and cheaper room rates than the better known chains nearby that are all newer. I didn't hate this hotel. It just needs an urgent refresh and redesign. The rooms are cavernously... More

I'm normally not a big fan of the Chinese cuisine but this restaurant was surprisingly good. Went here for business lunch and enjoyed the food and service very much. Prices are reasonable and the portions of fried rice are huge. Nice lagoon view.
