“A mouthwatering experience!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

As a foreigner the Yellow Chili is the best of both worlds. A great restaurant and great food choice. Waiters that can advise what to try and rather avoid, what is spicy or not as well s suggest popular dishes. You do not need to be "adventurous" you can try a few different things. I love the Egusi soup and pounded yam but the beans porridge, Eforiro and plantain combo is to die for! Bon appetit!

“Good food but sometimes run out of stock”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Their seafood okro is delicious. However, on two occasions I was forced to leave because they did not have pounded yam available. Yellow chilli is definitely a nice place to visit if you are craving authentic Nigerian cuisine. But be ready to wait a short while ( as with most restaurants in Lagos). You could try out "L'afric restaurant" on Sanusi Fafunwa, Victoria Island as well.

You must have the jollof rice with prawns and shrimp, it is simply delicious. If you do not like too spicy, ask for fried rice with prawn and shrimp
