“Bad Fish Pepper Soup”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Went for a dinner with friend, we entered about 9.30pm, ordered for Fish and Lamb Pepper soup on a sunday, as we look for ward to some local cuisine on sundays. It looked as though we were late as per the Restaurants standard so they just added fish in water with some spice in fish pepper soup and the same with Goat Pepper soup. It was terrible.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

There are two restaurants, one in V I and one in Ikeja on Joel Ogunaike St. just down the road from the two House J Hotels (house 1 and house 2 ) and KFC . the one in V I is older and a more traditional building. food fantastic, the one in Ikeja is more modern and has 2 areas,lower and upper, the upper one is the one i prefer the most. food just as good at both and realy good value. both are diferrent but have a great atmosphere.

“Another good food experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Only 50 meters away from the Blowfish hotel on Victoria Island we could enjoy an excellent Nigerian dinner in a relaxed ambiance. You get only the best of the Nigerian food, such as the gelatinous ogbono soup with crayfish or the ofada stew which is possibly the hottest yet very tasty dish I had in ages. There is no hype, just a normal, local and affordable African restaurant with high quality food and very nice service. And the best and funny part, of course if you a foreign adventurous person, is to have your gook luck guide you accross all these unknonw meals that can reveal strong personalities!

“Excellent Nigerian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

If you are in Lagos for business, you must dine at Yellow Chilli.

A travel agent friend of mine introduced me to this restaurant. I loved the security guard's uniform with the parasol.

You walk upstairs to the restaurant. It is not handicapped accessible. There are two rooms. One small dining area leads to a larger area that contains a bar and bigger main dining space.

I am a vegetable lover, so I was delighted to see more than traditional rice dishes.
My favorite dish was the shrimp and okra dish. The Nigerian spice suits my palate just fine. No need to reduce the spice for me.

“Refreshing take on African cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Great local food with a twist. Service could be better as it took 10-15 minutes just to serve our drinks. Exercise some caution in choosing food from the menu and ask for detailed explanation from server as not all dishes suitable for everyone's tastes!
