Travelling down Awolowo Rd at night, it is hard to miss the screaming neon frontage of Mr. Chang. Inside the decor is more subdued. Ornate paper and carved lanterns give a diffused light accentuating the hardwood and mosaic tile walls. There are nice touches here like the inlaid wooden screens (set up to provide intimacy for diners upon request), inlaid pottery sinks and Chinese vases nestling on carved shelves in the recesses of the first and second floors.
There is no sign of the eponymous Mr. Chang, but he’s left things in safe hands; staff are courteous and polite, though not overly talkative. Downstairs caters for 30 whilst upstairs there is a small bar and a further dining area for private functions or larger groups catering for a further 20 or so.
Clientele is a mix of ex-pat and locals enjoying a menu of Szechuan, Hunan and classic Chinese dishes particularly the kung pao chicken or yang chow special fried rice. Service is remarkably quick and portions are good. What the garlic pork ribs lack in meat they make up for in portion size, whilst the Singapore noodles have the right mix of spice and heat. Music is a little off-theme with a blend of pumping Europop and hip-hop seeming popular, though it’s not loud enough to really intrude.
This place has a slightly higher standard than your average Chinese in Lagos, and is a good option for those looking for a night away from their hotel. Expect to pay about N6500 a head.
