If there's one thing you can count on doing for fun in Lagos, it's eating out. Between the local joints and the more upscale intercontinental restaurants, dining out is a ready hang out option for the average Lagosian.

Inspite of the seemingly many options available, however, finding the perfect restaurant can sometimes prove to be quite the challenge. Enter fine dining consultant and blogger, Ify Oji.

The food columnist who is well-versed on the Lagos food scene was a recent guest on Pulse TV Live and she shared some great insight to the Lagos restaurant scene and also her top 4 highly recommended restaurants.

So the next time you're out 'n' about, you may want to try out the following spots:


  1. Yakoyo, Ilupeju: For authentic Nigerian cuisine prepared with the finest ingredient, Ify highly recommends Yakoyo restaurant. The clincher for her - pounded yam and egusi soup with catfish, yum!

  2. Red: Located in Eko Hotel, Red is a new-ish restaurant specialising in Chinese food and currently ranking way up as the hottest joint in town at the moment. Ify ranks it one of the top Chinese restaurants in Lagos at the moment.

  3. Izinagi: If you're looking to get an authentic feel of Japanese cuisine and ambiance, then this is the place to be. According to Ify, Izinagi follows the model of an izikaya (which is a Japanese pub), so you're getting authentic Japanese service and cuisine (great sushi) all at once.

  4. RSVP: For out-of-towners looking to get a feel of what Lagos is about, the food blogger recommends RSVP for its great customer service and wide array of food options.
