Yellow Chilli Restaurant in Ikeja is beautiful & clean with a lovely ambience. I was there with friends & we all enjoyed our meal. I had seafood okro soup popularly known as fisherman soup & it was hmmm, excellent. I look forward to going there again.

In the last couple of years, I had heard so much about Yellow Chilli that I made a firm mental note to visit when next I was in Nigeria. And so here I was on the afternoon of Wednesday 5th April with my sister, her 3 children and my daughter at the Ikeja branch. The car park staff were very... More

I love this restaurant set in residential area of Ikeja GRA in the mainland part of Lagos. The area itself is 'upmarket' by lagos mainland standards. The restaurant has both outdoor and indoor dining facilities with nice family round table seating arrangement as well as normal seating. Food is very nice mixing both local and continental delicacies. The bar area... More

Yellow Chilli's good. Food is authentic, especially for local cuisine. If you're visiting Nigeria and wish to experience the local dishes, YC will give you the full-on, authoritative experience. This is a fact. And for good measure, I'll recommend their seafood Okra. It's their star feature. The wait is a bit long, tho. Secret is to call in ahead of... More

I always love going to Yellow Chiili. I particularly love the Ikeja restaurant. The truth is the food takes forever to come but it is always value for money. The staff are courteous, not very friendly anyway. I love the fried yam and fresh fish sauce.

Very basic looking restaurant and quite expensive for what you get. I was quite disappointed by the seafood okra after all the hype I had heard. Chapman was also very meehr!

My friend and I went to The Yellow Chilli to have lunch the other day. It's not our first time there. The seafood okro soup is THE TRUTH! If you haven't tried it, you're carrying last. That's all!

For someone who isn't such a big fan of seafood, I thoroughly enjoyed their seafood okro! It was fresh and more than enough in a plate. I was at the Ikeja branch which had a lot of space and very impressive service. It was raining when it was time to leave and they brought us umbrellas and walked us into... More
