Had lunch here with the family. Staff were very helpful. We went with local dishes. Food was excellent and portions were fairly large. Ambience and decor was a plus. Would definitely return.

This is my favourite restaurant in Abuja. I go there with friends, and do office lunches there as well. There's a variety of delicious food to choose from - Continental, Indian, Nigerian. The staff are smartly dressed and polite, while the ambiance is great.

This is one heck of a place. Located in the central part of abuja, the interior decor is fantastic. There is a pianist that belts out nice music while you eat. If you are looking for a restaurant that serves nice local and continental (especially Chinese) dishes this is your place. The staff are polite and the food is GOOD.

This was my second time at this restaurant which our daughter introduced us to and I have no regrets eating here. I will eat here again and again. Delicious dishes and efficient staff. Quiet environment on the first floor of Ceddee Plaza.

So I have since found out (unverified) that this restaurant is owned by the same people who own Wakkis. Wakkis was a staple of our stays in Abuja, but we were a little tired of the "same old, same old". So on a colleagues recommendation, we ventured to Nkoyo. The food was great - the service was pleasant - the... More

Went for a business lunch - and had a dish recommended by my colleague based on my wish to have some greens. I had arrived the day before and was suffering a deficit of greens - kale, spinach chard- name it. I was not disappointed - it was green and a generous portion. I learnt it is called 'afang soup'....

I really liked this place. It's nicely decorated with a lot of taste and well maintained - something quite unusual here. The service was friendly and quick and I loved both the samosas and the coconut rice (portions were a bit large). I unfortunately saw a large rodent rushing through the restaurant - that soured a bit my mood, but... More

Went for dinner here with a couple of friends and we had a lovely time. Their waiters are very polite and their response time is good. I really enjoyed the mash potatoes & gravy. I would definitely go here again.
