Nice place on VI to sample the interesting and tasty local fare. It seemed that the standards (jollof rice, chilli chicken) were better than the more exotic stuff (Nigerian soups, seafood etc) but all in all not bad.

We went to yellow chilli and hopes were high. have to say, we were disappointed. décor falling apart. service was almost non-existing on a day that was not busy. not sure if it was the effect of recession. .

This restaurant was recommended to us as a place where we can have a seafood okro soup. And it was delicious! We fell in love with this delicacy during trip to Akwa Ibom state and couldn't find any place in Lagos where they prepare it. Yellow chilli is one of two restaurants they have it. It specializes on Nigerian cousine.... More

My husband and I went to have lunch at the Ikeja outlet of Yellow chilli. It was an average experience. The security and other staff were quite polite, parking space is quite big. However, we waited for nearly an hour for our food, a d a couple of minutes for our bill to be sent after eating. The food itself... More

It is a proper restaurant that have been in existence for over a decade. It specializes in Nigeria cuisines , It has a bar for hanging out in the evening but elitist in its clientele.It is located in the business district of Victoria island in Lagos Nigeria

Best place to visit with friends for an authentic taste of Nigerian delicacies. Good and lovely dishes on menu. A wonderful experience for a first timer! Preferred the Ikeja branch to Ikoyi though!

Yellow Chilli has been a favourite for about a decade on the island. It is the place for Nigerian cuisine done with a twist. The chef is creative without compromising the authenticity of local dish experience. It is located on a quiet street and so there is often adequate street parking. It is a good place for family hangouts as... More

We had a dinner here with members of my department. Definitely have been to better places with better meals. Their chicken wings are spicy like most Nigerian meals. If you're not chilli pepper friendly, stay off the chicken wings. Aside the chicken wings, which i really liked because i like spicy, i think all the other meals were very regular.... More
