    Brilliant place, but could do with more servers, food yum and ambience excellent. It would be great to have more vegetarian options, as I wanted to host my birthday there. Overall excellent 👌

    Very impressed with the quality of food for price. I’ve been to many Nigerian restaurants and can say I’d happily go back to papi’s grill. The professionalism of the staff and the food was to a good standard. I had 2 hang ups which is that, parking around the restaurant is an absolute nightmare before 7pm. So you will need to allocate another 25 mins just to find parking, which would’ve been good to know prior to making the booking. My only other flaw was that the food took ages before being served which I couldn’t understand because the restaurant wasn’t busy at all. Asides from that, Papi’s grill is deffo worth the hype!!

    Food was great, drinks were great. Staff were rude, rushed us to order and pay the bill very quickly. The service does not match the cost of the food in my opinion. Very weird experience overall.

    Good food enjoyed it- sizeable amount. Chicken and fish could be cooked just a bit longer- still enjoyed it tho! Really wanted tozo suya, but unfortunately wasn’t available. Although not a fan of basmati, love the party style flavoured jollof. Chapman was nice too-good amount! Service was great☺️

    Food came 2 hours late and we were rushed off our table before we could finish eating. One of the staff became aggressive and verbally abusive towards myself and friend. Definitely will not be coming back.

    This was a really nice place to eat at. However I did not like the fact that we were reminded a few times that we were only allocated 2hours. It made us feel a bit rushed. The food and drink was lovely and I would recommend the restaurant to family and friends.

    Was good, been a few times now, but took a friend who was visiting for the first time, he found it a little choked up and noisy inside, so we asked to be seated outside, and they were kind enough to obliged, he was impressed with the Asun, food was flavourful and so filling couldn't touch my mains and had it packed. Weldone Femi and the crew.

    Initially when I read the previous reviews about how long the food took to come I was unsure what type of service I would get today. However we had a completely different experience. We ordered our food and it came with in 10 minutes. The staff were friendly and the venue was clean including the toilets which is a big deal for me! I will definitely be going back.

    Got here on time and we were seated straightaway, ordered our drinks and that came quick too and was real nice. Next, we had the chicken wings and Asun for starters and it was a good choice. Had the mains and was surprised by the large portions and we had to take the leftovers home. Overall it was a good evening and the atmosphere made it all the more pleasant. Will definitely be going back there.
