Woks Asian Cuisine is a restaurant by the Blowfish Group offering Asian food – Indian & Chinese. Blowfish also owns La Veranda and Izanagi. Not really sure what the proper name is. Sometimes I see Woks Asian Cuisine or Woks Asian Restaurant and on Instagram it’s Woks by the Blowfish group (I’m sure this is because there is also Woks and Koi which is a Chinese restaurant in Lekki 1) 🤷♀️
Woks Asian Cuisine opened up in the middle of the panoramic – Entrepreneurs in Nigeria are resilient sha
Speaking of resilience, the Blowfish group totally revamped their space and fighting to be the top spot for folks to chill at. The property houses a hotel, La Veranda and of course, Woks which offers Asian food.

The menu was quite long and is a mix of Chinese, Thai food and Indian food which are meals Lagosians really like.
We ordered a frozen Strawberry Limeade and the House Ginger Beer. The benefits of Ginger in these Covid times can’t be overemphasised so nothing spoil if we have it as a cocktail right?
These were so good – no complaints at all. I like my cocktail sweet!
For starters, had some Vegetable Tom Yum soup and some Garlic Naan and Butter Naan. I had never tried this soup before but it was really good. No regrets. Naan bread is always a must and it was not bad at all. Not the best I have had but was just alright.
For main meals, had a mixture of veggies, some protein for a good balance with some Thai seafood fried rice. The Kung Pao chicken was my fave – sweet flavouring with some spicy. The portion was really good too. The rice was generous with prawns and other seafood – every spoon had at least 2 prawns
The veggies stir fry was crunchy and not overcooked which was good.
Really enjoyed the Kung Pao Chicken – was really good
The decision to get dessert was very last minute as we were quite full but dessert is always a must. I went plainly with the Walnut lover which was just walnut-topped ice cream. The ice cream tasted very cheap – didn’t enjoy this. O had an Indian Dessert – the Gulab Jamun which looked like soaked puff-puff in some sort of sugar syrup. She thought it was ok and being a warm dessert, it was not so bad.
