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.

Had lunch with the office staff when visiting Lagos office this week and they brought us here. The office staff really likes the food and whilst it is not fantastic or anything, I would give it a score of 6/10. Happy to come back here anytime as price were reasonable, quality is good and food was authentic!

Nice ambience and food. Good-time had by my wife and I. The food and appetizers were all good and prices reasonable for Lagos. Went for a late afternoon drinks at Sundown overlooking the Lagoon and then a nice dinner. The Crab Claws were very good. Wait staff was excellent. We will return.

As far as Lagos goes, this is one of the few places where one can actually get value for money and it tastes good. Period. Oh, and by the way, try the sweet and sour shrimp or the salt and pepper spare ribs. Yeah baby!

Oriental Garden has impressive interior decoration and furniture and you definitely know you are in a Chinese restaurant. There is also a good view overlooking the lagoon. The service is good although the food is a little slow coming out. The rice portions are huge and one order of rice can easily serve 2 or possibly, 3 people. The WiFi... More
