There's no where else to find fine Japanese Cuisines. The restaurant is very cozy with very polite waiters and waitresses. The food is great. I enjoyed every bit of my time with friends here. It seems a bit pricey though but I guess it's because everything used is most likely imported.

I was disappointed to taste stale oil taste in the prawn tempura. Dynamite prawns - its way too sweet.. and sweet chili is something I like..

The food is fresh and very creative! The waiters are kind and professional. You can easily compare Izanagi to Nobu and Zuma in London. One must definitely eat there when in Lagos, otherwise you'll be missing a huge thing. Cheers

We ordered wasabi beancurd, chicken ramen, sashmi platter, salmon skin sushi and sake. The food did not disappoint and plating was interesting. The sashimi was served on an ice ship which kept the seafood slices chilled. While it was pricey , the ingredients were fresh, lots of wasabi and ginger slices made available and sushi was authentic compared to the... More

We came here as part of a large group. We had a prearranged set menu of everything from Sushi to beef. The starters, main course and desert was all tasty and well prepared. I did find the restaurant a little pricey The service was great though and I cant complain. Will definitely come again

Thank Colin P
