It been about three months since my friend and I went to check out the then newly launched self-grill restaurant in town, Grills In and Out, located at 1 Kindia Close, Off Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja, has two sections, the self grill section which has tables fitted with grills that enables customers to have a personalized mini barbecue. They also have the regular section were customers are served in the usual restaurant fashion. However, we are more interested in the self grill section, which as far as I’m concerned is its first of its kind in Abuja.
The last time I experienced something similar was on my birthday which I celebrated at Benihana New York, the major difference is that at Benihana you get a personal chef to do all the grilling for you with little performances done with the food. Well, I think i find the self grill more interesting, because it’s more intimate, exciting and you do what you want, how you want it.
My Verdict : Great ambiance, prefect for family eat out, after work dinner, and great for a date night. The meats were marinated to perfection, so so good, very tender too, so it didn’t take forever to cook. The prize was a bit on the high side, we had the All Meaty Combo and it cost N7,500.00, serves 2 persons though. However, the portions I believe was small because at the end of it, I was still hungry, hence my opinion that it’s kinda pricey…Although they have other options that are way cheaper. I decide to go for the All Meaty Combo because it had beef, chicken, lamb and gizzard, served with sides of choice, we choose potatoes wedges and pasta. I thought the potatoes wedges should have been fried a bit more to golden brown with crispy edges..just how I like em’. For our starter we had calamari with dipping sauce (N2,000.00) . So the experience cost us about N9,700.00.
Rating : 3.5/5
I wish the portions were bigger and the potatoes wedges had a crunch to them.
According to @fresh2cute, the pasta was a bit dry too.
