Miso Japanese and Thai | Abuja

đź“ŤRooftop @ Summerset Continental Hotel, 34 Usuma St, Maitama, Abuja

Celebrated my birthday over the weekend with some of the most amazing people! Started the day with lunch at Miso. It’s a new restaurant located at the rooftop of Summerset Continental Hotel.

One thing I make sure I do on my birthday is to eat gooood! I usually consider that to be a gift to myself! What traditions do you have for your birthday?

AMBIENCE:

You already know how I feel about rooftops! I’ve been to a few rooftop restaurants in Abuja, and this definitely tops the list in terms of what the surrounding scenery has to offer.

What I also loved about the space was how there was minimal decoration, which allows you to appreciate the views even better.

 

SERVICE:

Generally, the service was a disappointment. In their defence, there was a party going on at the other end of the restaurant, but my friends and I felt that wasn’t enough reason to not pay mind to other diners. Food took a while to be prepared, but it was definitely worth it in the end. Our waiter was the nicest too.

FOOD:

Despite the disappointing service, the food almost made up for it! Everyones plate was delicious. Generous portions and some were beautifully presented.

Volcano Maki Roll (Sushi) – N5,750

Fettuccini Pasta – N5,060

Penne Pasta – N5,000

Billing:

Number of People: 6

SALMAH’S SIDENOTE:

Sharing is key in this place. Order what you each like and share amongst each other to save cost. Plus they have a 10% service charge on every item on that menu (we learnt that the hard way), so don’t forget to add that to your budget.

Additionally, they’re not limited to Japanese & Thai food, it’s more continental than asian-fusion imo. There are choices of pastas, steaks and burgers too. So something for everyone!

REVIEW OF FOOD:

Pad Thai Noodles – N6,900

Not as tangy and saucy as I would’ve personally liked, but it tasted really good! The shrimps in it were really good.

Fettuccini Pasta – N5,060

Penne Pasta – N5,000

Thai Red/Green Curry – N8,625

These guys know how to make a mean Pasta dish! Perfect amount of cream and cheese, plus the pasta was cooked al dente!

Volcano Maki Roll (Sushi) – N5,750

Mainly loved the presentation of this! Forgot the description of the dish, but the combination of the crispy topping and the main sushi itself was spot on. Adding a wee bit of soy sauce added some magic to it.

Ebi Fry – N7,475

Beautifully made! It paired nicely with the spicy mayo dipping sauce on the side. Highly recommended!
