Tulip Bistro Abuja

Restaurant Review: Tulip Bistro Abuja

Tulip Bistro (Wuse 2, Abuja) 141 Ademola Adetokunbo Crescent | Phone| Instagram Tulip Bistro, Abuja is an oriental international fusion restaurant located at Wuse 2, Abuja! I decided to stop by for a quick bite. The restaurant space is wide and beautiful as you can see from the pictures. I, however, couldn’t cover more as they had restrictions so taking pictures and videos which was a bit understandable as there were customers seated in the restaurant and the waiters weren’t rude about it so that’s fine.     MAIN I had the Classic Burger and a can of coke as it […]

Amazonia Restaurant Abuja

Restaurant Review: Amazonia Restaurant Abuja

Amazonia Restaurant (Wuse 2, Abuja) 7 Hombori Street, Wuse 2|Phone|Instagram Amazonia Restaurant Abuja is a rainforest-themed restaurant located in the Art-Tech District. The dining experience here is really interesting, they even have a gorilla walk around the restaurant while you dine to give you that forest experience and I find that pretty cool. It’s also a child-friendly restaurant.         The interior of Amazonia is cozy and nice, the seating space is wide enough to not have clusters.

SEE Lagos Restaurant (Lekki Phase 1, Lagos) 36b Wole Ariyo, Lekki Phase 1| Phone | Instagram SEE Lagos Restaurant is a newly opened restaurant in Lekki phase 1, so we decided to check it out for lunch. Lekki is popping restaurants so fast these days it’s getting harder to keep track of. Moving on, the restaurant looks really nice and has a cosy feel to it. The decor is minimal but refreshing. The ambience is warm and so is the lighting. They have some plants instead and outside that lifts the atmosphere of the space and I like that. There […]
