Serendib has become my favorite restaurant for the reason of excellent quality of food. The mix of spice that creates test.......mouth watering. Evening and morning hours it is pleasure to sit outside in balcony/terrace, which gives excellent view to lake. Staff is courteous. Kitchen is see through that gives full view of their clean kitchen.

I ate at the Serendib twice during my last stay in Abuja. It has a mixed, nice menu with selections of Indian, Chinese, and, best of all, Sri Lankan. The staff are very nice, friendly, attentive. The food is very good and the beers are very cold. Set on the top floor with rooftop views, it is a pleasant place... More

A tidy little place with a window onto the kitchen and another overlooking the lake. My strong recommendation is to choose something from the Sri Lankan menu - a real taste if that country. One of the best dining experiences in Abuja!

I had an Indian vegetarian meal. The service was prompt and friendly with a good view of Jabi Lake. It would be nice if they install a cordless POS so that I can pay without leaving the table.
