Food Shack Restaurant, Lagos
Food Shack restaurant is located on Victoria Island. Your go-to restaurant for anything barbecue/grills.
The ambiance is a mix of nature/minimalist design. The atrium is peaceful and beautifully decorated, great for casual hangouts, and small get-togethers as it’s a small space. Also, a cozy place to study/work on your projects (early hours of the day tho). 8/10
Customer service is 4/10. Although the staff are friendly the waiting time was extremely long, close to 45 minutes even for the drinks! When the drinks came I was wondering what took them so long as the Pina colada was just Chi exotic in a glass cup.
Pina colada was 3k on the menu and was charged 4k, I was so pissed cos I was served Chi-Exotic as pina colada, their lame excuse was it’s under cocktail not mocktail on their system, I don’t even get it when there is no ounce of alcohol in it.
I will advise you don’t go there starving as long processing time has been the usual complaints I’ve gotten from people I recommended the place to.
There was also no physical menu as I was told to use IG to check their menu. In my mind, I was like “Ahnahn, what if I don’t have data or your guest doesn’t have a Nigeria sim to access the Internet?”. Hopefully, they’ve worked on that.
One other thing that is still baffling is when I asked for ketchup or chili sauce to eat my stir-fried rice with as it was really dry and was told it will attract extra cost, I was charged 500 for a very tiny container of sauce!!! In all my life of visiting restaurants (I can tell you I’ve been to a lot!) I have never been charged for small chili pepper to eat my meals with. This was the first.
Also charged 550 for foil to take out my leftover?. I still don’t get why restaurants make us pay for take-away packs. It should be an additional service. I love the fact they pack your leftovers in your presence.
For the food, 8/10. The ribs and wings were so tender a toothless person will enjoy it. Dirty fries are just fries fried with red oil but trust me, it’s still yummy.
What I had:
Shack wings and Ribs combo N8500
Sweet and Spicy BBQ Jollof Rice N3900
Pina colada N4000
Chili sauce N500
Additional Tax 10%
