Even though the waiting time was too long but could have been mitigated by a call from me to them prior to arriving there I believe that could be improved upon....However, food is excellent and I will give this recommendation to anyone to feel the way i felt..

I was in town and took my friend Chika out to lunch after a business meeting. I ordered Editan soup and she ordered Afang. It took an hour plus to get the food out and the waitress was not too friendly and never smiled. Anyway the scam here was that I got Edikaikong soup instead of Editan which I ordered... More

The staff are as nice and warm as the food. The lounges are a plus. I went there after an exam and could rest my head, watch a football match while enjoying good food. Their vegetable soup is wonderful. I would recommend this place for anyone.

This restaurant has the potential of being a cozy place to eat local dishes with its neat interior decor, and air conditioning, but service is very slow, you may have to wait as much as 30 minutes. So if you must go, don't go hungry. When they meal finally came, the vegetables was near raw and the meat was tough.... More

First time I was eating from Lydia was a jollof rice with prawns. I thought it was wow. Slightly better than yello chili, I thought. Then, after a long while I wanted to go for a native treat and to Lydia I went. My friend encouraged me to try the okra with seafood. I LOVE IT. I was so craving... More
