REVIEW: 4GUYS RESTAURANT, WUSE 2, ABUJA

4GUYS @4guysng is an upscale restaurant that recently opened in Wuse 2, Abuja. It offers Japanese, Chinese and Italian cuisine. We were invited by 4Guys to try out some dishes from their menu and their famous Teppanyaki.
An overview of the ambience and style of this restaurant

So what do we think:
ENVIRONMENT
This space features an open kitchen and by far the largest open kitchen you can find in Abuja. Dining at the bar gives you option to chat or interact with the chefs here or even watch while your meal is being made. The space has an industrial vibe with exposed pipes, wooden beams, dim lighting and bold Edison bulbs. Their wine rack is an interesting display. This place is great for groups and dates.

SERVICE
The place offers really good service. The waiters are smart and efficient. Each dish is quality checked by the head chef before service. The Teppanyaki experience is quite amazing. From the fire tricks to knives tricks to juggling eggs or rice bowls to spelling out “I ♥️ U”, the chef that prepared our Teppanyaki kept us on our toes and well entertained.  If you plan on dining here, make sure to get a reservation.FOOD
We got to try their Szechuan chicken, Jasmine rice, Penne Arabiata, Spaghetti Pomodoro, Beef sauce, chicken dumplings, California roll, maki roll and seafood linguine. The dumplings were really delicious and paired well with the soy sauce. Szechuan chicken and beef sauce were rich and flavourful. They were nicely seasoned, spicy and with decent heat. The chicken was definitely the star. The linguine was good dish with a decent amount of prawns. The penne was al dente but its sauce was rather sour. The spaghetti had too much cheese which overpowered the entire dish otherwise it would’ve been great.
The crispy California roll
Teppanyaki here features soup, fried veggies, fried rice and Hibachi of your choice (fish, chicken, beef or a combo). The fried veggies had a nice crunch and were perfectly seasoned. The soup was warm and had an interesting taste. The fried rice had hints of toasted sesame seeds which gave it a rich flavour. We really enjoyed the Chinese and Japanese cuisine here. The food was authentic and tasted amazing. The Italian dishes would need some work to be as good.PRICING
The food here is quite expensive and ranges from about 3000 to 40000 naira. The Teppanyaki ranges from 13000 to 18000 naira.P.S. Have you been to 4guys or tried Teppanyaki?
