#2. Crockpot, Sheraton Hotel
A perfect buffet in Lagos is not complete without this Ikeja-based restaurant. We are yet to conclude if it’s the live band or the thought of an unending variety of sumptuous meals that influence customers to take a nonchalant dive into the world of this restaurant’s buffet service. Nevertheless, it is worth the while and money and their buffet go for 10,000 NGN on average.
Tip: Whatever you do, start with the gizzard pepper soup and don’t overlook their Mongolian grill. Sure darling, you’re welcome.

You might want to head there early to miss a crowd of fellow stomach-empty customers.

It is an all-round satisfaction at the George, a time out from the pandemonium of the city and value for every penny spent.
