“Good place to try Nigerian Food”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Company had dinner for the local staff, so this is where we were brought. They served us buffet style dinner as per request, and food was good. Service was good as well. Good place for expats to try local dish that is cooked well. Crowded when we went there, actually.

“Excellent place to try Nigerian food for the first time”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Genuine southern Nigerian food, good presentation, good ambience. I loved the seafood okra - just the right amount of crunch, not slimy, the way some people prepare it. The jollof rice fiesta is also a favourite of many, and is a good place for a foreigner to start... be warned though - if you don't want it hot (as in, pepper hot), tell them upfront... hot and spicy is the default in most southern Nigerian cuisine!

“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!
