Charme_restaurant is a Chinese restaurant located on Gana Street. We stopped by recently for lunch.
First off, it’s a lovely place, the aesthetics are stunning! The abundance of natural light is so soothing! It’s also very classy and spacious! The space is decorated with lovely wall art and raffia lights. It’s very picturesque.
Sweet and Sour Pineapple Chicken N5,800
Shrimp Singapore Noodle N4,500
Sui Mai (Chinese dumpling) N3,000
We wanted the handmade noodles but it wasn’t available. Nevertheless, The Singapore noodle had to be our favorite! We especially liked what they did with the shrimp, it was crispy and tasty. The veggies were also crunchy and fresh. We didn’t mind the dumpling either, the top was just a tad bit too thick and dry. We would have preferred a smaller bite sized dumpling too. Now for the sweet and sour chicken, while we liked the crunch on the chicken, it was our least favorite dish. We also expected a slightly bigger portion. Generally the servings here are enough for 1 person.
Food came out in good time. The servers could be more attentive.
After our meal, we actually sat for a bit and chilled, there’s just something about the space that makes you want to stay. And if you’re a lover of natural light, it’s especially beautiful in the late afternoon.
Charme_restaurant would work great for date or group hangouts. It’s spacious and there are private seating corners.
There’s also a bubble tea spot Charmeteashop and supermarket in the same compound. You can get Asian food such as ramen from here.
Have you been? What was your experience? We’d love to hear about it.
