Jay’s Diner is a late-night spot to get quality food and is opened from 6pm till 5am daily. Jay’s Diner would be a great place to go if you get hungry at odd times at night or as an after clubbing stop for some good food. The diner is open from evening till dawn, safe to say if you are around Falomo Square Mall, Ikoyi around that time, you can rest be assured you have a food plug. It is an outdoor space with wooden benches to sit on while you wait for your order.
Because it was dinner, I had Stir-Fry Pasta and Chicken Wings. The service staff confirmed my spice preference, and I chose mid-spicy. If you think you can’t handle some spice, you can settle for ‘not spicy’ as mid-spicy goes a bit above that scale. Asides from that, it was delicious with lots of bell peppers and ample protein in it – chicken chunks and franks. I would score it a 9/10.
For the wings, I had a pack of eight BBQ wings. The sauces were just right, and the wings were well-marinated. I could taste the sauce in the easy-to-chew bones.
I had the strawberry shake; it was the perfect compliment to the spicy pasta. The blend was great and did not separate after some time. However, I found a large clump of the strawberry blend at the bottom that could not get through the straw. It was an 8/10.
The service was 100% from start to finish. The first waiter to take my order was swift, clear with communication, and polite. He was very friendly and patient with me even as I struggled with the menu. I was given nylon gloves for my wings which I think was very thoughtful, even though I was looking forward to getting my hands messy with the goodness of the wings. The packaging was great as well. I totally would eat out at Jay’s diner again.
