Mongolian Grill
This is a concept of dining where you build your own bowl of food from raw ingredients. It’s a fast, semi-casual, stir-fry concept which guarantees you get your food warm and fresh every time. This is not a cuisine in pure form but an interactive style of exhibition cooking modeled after the centuries-old Mongolian culture. The ancient Mongol warriors in the 12th century, led by the legendary Genghis Khan heated their shields over open fires to grill food in the battlefield.

Speaking on the restaurant’s specialty, a fan says the process is very interesting. Read the account, I was presented with a large array of raw food in a cold display. Proteins (Chicken, beef, mutton, duck, fish, eggs, calamari, shrimps, prawns), Vegetables (Broccoli, carrots, bamboo shoots, rummer beans, sweet corn, mushrooms, an array of fresh peppers, spring onions) and sauces (Szechuan, roasted tomato, chilli, black bean, suya sauce). You pick your own raw ingredients to make a meal, select whether you prefer fried rice, brown rice or noodles to go with your proteins and vegetables, then the meal is grilled fresh in your presence while you sit and enjoy a chilled drink. It is truly a different dining experience. You can also choose just the stir fry alone without the rice or noodles.

I’m not really big on eating out but I do admit the customer involved process at GIO is excellent. The customer has total control over what goes into his/her plate and that for me is a plus. I guess that’s why GIO’s tagline “Own Your Food” comes from.

Cocktails & Mocktails
The presence and expertise of Cocktails In and Out is very obvious in the Grills In and Out restaurant. Here, the sister company offers a tasteful variety of cocktails with high quality presentation. Available also are frozen cocktails (Chapman , daiquiris, margaritas) as well as the regular types.

The drinks are of the highest standard with attention to details in terms of garnishing, taste and presentation. Customers have the option of ordering take-away, not only the food but also the cocktails in their interesting fun cup which is one of the unique selling points of this restaurant.

    Looks really nice, love the look of the cocktails.
    Eeerrrmmm so we go wan reach this side but any either of budget or how much it would cost to have a meal there? I want to go with my oga but he is allergic to unreasonably pricey joints

      See wahala o! WHat utter silliness is this? That is like saying Zara is not original because they sell clothes, shoes and bags just like Mango sells the same kind of goods. Sweety it is called business and right now it is no longer a case of inventing new ideas buts innovating new ways of doing old things.

    Nigerians can never be original though. Totally opined the concept at genghi’s grill here in Yankee. Always copying.

      January 16, 2013 at 10:06 am

      @R, if Nigerians are copy copy what are you, even if it is the US, she still thought about it and did it while adding her own flair, what have you done, it is better to copy a genius than to sit there doing nothing…..

      Hi Kemi! Sadly she is a native of Abeokuta.Born, bred and educated all in that ancient city! She just has the flair to think out of the box, hence her ingenious ideas such as Grills in &out and Cocktails In & Out. I recommend the Monoglian and Nigerian grill since u are allowed to ‘Own Your Food’

      The concept of this place looks very much like Hibachi grill in the US minus the cocktails in and out, which is a very creative thing to do.

    The mongolian grill was out of this world, for lack of a better way to describe it.
    The ambience of the place…. the take away coktail cups… A new niche for me.

  15. kasali yomi

    The grilled fish is rili 9ice.its so so tasteee. when are u guys coming 2 lasgidi? we dey wait 4 una.

    January 15, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    The food looks super yummy and the restaurant seems to have an excellent ambience. They have similar concept restaurants here in US but I am confident that the cooking at Grills is probably better since Nigerians have a better grasp of making food flavorful.

    • Zara

      January 17, 2013 at 4:51 pm

      U are so right. My mum and sisters went to be gnus grill last night in Yankee and they called to say that grills in and out was much better than genghis. Nigerians can always add more flavor to food. Well done grills

    I first saw Grills-in & out in the wedding planner magazine and I decided to check them out. One thing they know how to do best is to offer you variety of food without you being chock-full. The environment was breathtaking and I enjoyed every spoon I took. It surely a place I will recommend to anyone who want to experience something new.

    This is the best restaurant concept I have ever seen, considering the fact that I don’t reside in Nig. anymore and I have been exposed to lots of ideas and concepts, this still wows me…. I wish them all the best in this business.

    The setting, aroma of the food and the hospitability of the staff speaks volume. I can’t imagine not visiting this cuisine twice daily. The grilled seafood was “gbabeski” and “Sumptuous”…….. my toiletting dat very day required no pokipoki or yoyo bitters!
