Charcoal is centrally located in the city of Abuja and surrounded by many other hangout spots. Here, you find a variety of continental and Nigerian bites and drinks. I particularly love their catfish and fried yam, which is very tasty and the cocktails are also good. They have lots of waiters which means their service is great.

Just finished our meal at The Charcoal. The plantain we ordered was left out of the meal but overall we will recommend to friends, colleagues and other family members. Its our first and definitely will not be the last. Thank you to our waiter Sandra for being warm and efficient.

Visiting Abuja and found this treasure of a restaurant in the heart of the city. The ambience was great and you had a choice of spacious sitting indoors or on the roof terrace. There was a wide choice on the menu and The Platters we chose were very tasty and and the portions were generous. I found the waiters courteous and smartly dressed. Will definitely be returning on my next visit

We went on Saturday and went with high hopes but the service was very poor. The waiter serving us was coming back after 20 minutes that food items ordered by us were not available. When it happened for 2-3 items then we decided to confirm with the kitchen staff and they said that items were available. There are very few options available for the vegetarian people.
