I received a message; it was an invite from Cut Restaurant at Radisson Blu Ikeja. Surreal I must say.
I thought it was going to be some Rice or Pasta type of menu, so in my head, I was already scheming how I was going to crush to bits the chicken bones and forget my home training, guess what?
I quickly snapped out of that imagination.
C’mon! How can I go into a restaurant like this and forget home training? No way!
The entire place screamed prim and proper, class and poise, simple yet well structured.
And at that moment I was quick to conclude how lavish their menu was going to be and how I should start saving towards my next visit.
But iro ni! The “Cut” won’t cut your head off; their meals are pocket-friendly.
Cut Restaurant formerly known as Cut Steak house, is a Restaurant in the beautiful heart of the Lagos mainland (not every time Island)
They concentrate on what they call the 3B’s
Succulent Beef and
Bread, Beef and Bordeaux hence my dashed hope of a rice and pasta dream.
Cut Restaurant, I’d say has that standard setting. Ideally what a five-star hotel restaurant should be.
The décor. Simple yet topnotch.
The designs. Really classy yet modest.
The chandeliers, the sitting arrangement, the kitchen setting…well thought out and put together.
It’s an 7/10 for me.
Nonetheless, the menu was the real deal for me- the starters got me in a state of reverie, in fact, a new dream was birthed – one to kick start eating healthy.
My Starter Selection
Prawns & Ceaser Salad with White Wine.
I wonder if they know about my love for prawns I almost asked for more but hmmm(Toke behave 😂)
The Prawns: Well-seasoned and cooked, not too much drama going on in my taste buds and that made me love it.
The Ceaser Salad: Romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, Garlic croutons.
This is pure veggie; I don’t know why it tasted so much like a Tuna salad in my mouth but oh well! I love Tuna Salads, so if this tastes like it then I guess I love a Ceaser Salad too.
Though I started off with Wine Tasting
Wine served: Plaisir De Marie
Alcohol percentage: 14%
Wine Type: White Wine
I fancy white wine and this is one of those wines that make you feel elegant.
Not too strong, not really mild. But you want to go slow while consuming.
The Main Dish:
Lamb chops with Red Wine
Sides: Mashed potatoes, roasted veggies and black pepper sauce.
Okay! For a first-timer trying out this dish, two things could have happened.
- It’s either it would have tasted terrible and I felt like puking or
- I thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to try it again to properly savor what the dish entails.
Guess which of these 2 happened?
Clap for yourself! You just guessed right!
Option 2 did it for me! I emptied my plate and almost licked the serving dish even 😂 (tifunnoran)
My friend, an expert at eating steaks couldn’t stop commending how well cooked and garnished it was.
Dessert: Chocolate Pudding
This is where I say “Thank you Cut Restaurant”, but please can I make a request?
Can I get this delivered to me every day?
I love Chocolate and having this chocolate dessert felt like heaven.
E sweet my belle and I felt relaxed right after consuming.
Ceaser Salad: 5000
White Wine: 10,000 per bottle
2500 per glass
Lamb chops :12500
Sides: Mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, and black pepper sauce
Note- Served with your preferred choice of sauce and side
Red Wine: 10,000 Naira per bottle
2,500 per glass
Chocolate Pudding: 4000 naira
OH! Another interesting and marketable strategy I noticed is that you can put together your own menu, ranging from –
A main course of 9,000
2course meal for: 10,000
3course meal for: 12,500
Isn’t that a good deal?
I’m giving them a rating of 9/10
Yeah! I know they might have been a little more accommodating and nice because I was their special guest but it wasn’t so.
I took my time to observe how they treated their customers. Trust me when I say the attendants’ customer relationship was first-class.
I praise them for great services.
And I’m recommending them to you as a must-visit, you can enjoy a dinner date, girls hangout, conference and such type of gatherings.
How so?!, you may ask…well because
Cut restaurant is split into three:
Cut One: The entrance and the main restaurant
Cut Two: This is like a dining area, one that can seat about 10 persons.
Cut Three: More like a conference room to accommodate about 18 persons.
You can have a conference meeting here while you dine with your executives and board members.
For my blogger comrades:
You can have your hangout here at a very good rebate.
Thank you, Cut Restaurant for having me.
