A team of Google Local Guide has given Awoof Berekete, a restaurant with assorted local and intercontinental cuisines, a five-star rating following its visit to the food outlet in Lagos.
The restaurant, located at popular Falemi House, by Obanikoro bus/stop, along Ikorodu road, was officially opened on 3 September, 2018.
And the local Google Guide volunteers were there to access and rate the new rave eatery in Nigeria.
Google Local Guide is a group of volunteers who help to contribute to the content of Google Maps by scoring a place with ratings after describing their experiences and making reviews.
Team leader Sanya Oluwadare, who is the founder of Harleny Designs Limited, said the restaurant had the most important prerequisite as required by Google.
“For instance, the entrance is usually one of the things that we take note of because Google is interested to know that every location is built in such a way that people with wheelchair can easily access the entrance of the place,” he told Concise News.
“Given the fact that this place is wheelchair accessible, I will rate it four”
He further said that the place took him by surprise after seeing the efforts put together in setting up a very hygienic standard in the kitchen.
Oluwadare added that very few eateries in Nigeria keep a very healthy standard, counting Awoof Berekete as one of the few ones.
“We have the rare privilege of having the owner meet us whilst we were here and he was magnanimous enough to take us into the backend, where the things are being prepared and I must give kudos to the amount of work and the level of hygiene,” he added.
“We were taken round to the water processing mechanism and I can’t say I have seen too many of that in Lagos and that is a good rating for this place.”
Similarly, a Human Resources consultant, Pwana, after thorough inspection, said personally she would rate the venture 5/5.
According to her, the organisation is well structured and managed.
“To be very honest, I will give them a full five star, from coming in here, it’s clean. The place is not choked with smell of food. It’s quite spacious; the interior is very simple but it’s very good and the array of foods that has been put out there just as well,” she said.
