I had been to yellow chilli in Victoria Island but had not visited the outlet in GRA so it was an outing i looked forward to. The setting was nice and the interior, tastefully done. I had the famous 'seafood Okra soup' with nicely pounded yam and i was not disappointed at all. The food tastes as good as it... More

The environment and decor are nice. Food wasn't the greatest. Probably will order something else next time. As I ordered jollof rice and plantain. Price is reasonable. Waiter friendly.

What a great place to have a delicious Nigerian meal! I'm not Nigerian and only just visited Lagos and a Nigerian friend took me here (a place he used to go to often with friends). The atmosphere is great, the food is great, all around just a great place to eat. Last time I was there I had the Seafood... More

Food is authentic. Nigerian food cooked mostly Yoruba style. Good quality and quantity. Service ranges from ok to abysmal. On our last visit, we left without eating as the wait time between order and arrival of the food exceeded an hour.

Yellow chili is a place you would want to go if you crave the proper nigerian delicacies. i've never tried their continental dishes so i cannot say much on that but the local ones are everything. i personally recommend the dodo and beans, or the porridge yam, or the soups, or the..... intact, everything. it is averagely priced as well...

The food is well prepared and very affordable. The taste of their meals is very consistent in both outlets. The ambience and atmosphere of any yellow chilli restaurant is very conducive and the staff is very re. i love the fried rice and snail as well as their sea food platter. very great experience for lunch and dinner.

This is currently my favourite restaurant in Lagos to eat 'pounded yam', 'amala', or 'eba'. These are typical Nigerian dishes served with delicious vegetable stews and various types of meats, fish, chicken etc..sumptuous! Nice location, good staff, tasty well presented food - definitely one of the better eateries for Nigerian food in Lagos!

Been here twice. To me some dishes are over priced. The rice can sometimes be dry but portions are great and food is always nice. Ambience for me is zero. sorry its always dark in the Victoria Island one. The GRA one is newer so its nicer, more natural lighting etc. I also really do not like their plating...nut that's... More
