With a wide range of offerings on its menu, it’s a tested go-to for typical Nigerian dishes. Endorsed by your favourite public figures and influencers, there is no reason to stay starved in the wee hours of the morning with Eve After Dark.
Prime Chinese Restaurant.
If we know one thing to be true, it’s that Nigerians – Lagosians especially love a good Chinese meal. Luckily you don’t have to wait till lunchtime to get one. Located on Bishop Aboyade Cole Street, Victoria island – right in the heart of the nightlife scene in Lagos – Prime Chinese is a popular home to late-night troopers.
