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 just me :)

Yellow Chilli (named after the spicy yellow pepper used in some of our hot, hot soups) is a great place to enjoy traditional Nigerian meals in a proper restaurant setting. Everyone knows that some of the best examples of local cuisine is to be had in dubious looking shacks...scary, but mostly worth the effort. However, Yellow Chilli ups the ante on this. I wouldn't come out here to eat rice. You must sample the soups - edikanikong, afang, egusi, white soup or the fisherman stew (read seafood party!)
I've visited the Victoria Island outlet (older) and the one in Ikeja (newer). The quality's the same, but the ambience of the Ikeja outlet is better by far.

I had lunch here and the quality of the food was quite good. There is quite a variety of local dishes as well as more conventional ones for the less adventurous. Altogether a good experience.

I prefer the outlet on the mainland (Ikeja GRA) to the one in Victoria Island. However, the meals in both places are consistently good. The ambience is nice and the service commendable.
Parking can be a problem atimes though.
