“Great food.”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

I have been to Yellow Chilli at Ikeja GRA twice. The visits were about two weeks apart. The first visit coincided with a private birthday party holding in a corner of the top floor. The restaurant was a bit noisy. The second visit was quieter. Great food both times. Try the banga soup with dry fish. It comes in a clay pot. The Chapman is a winner. Very rich. Good service. Look out for the waiter called Jamal. He's attentive.

“Nice African Meal, Nice Atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

I had been to yellow chilli in Victoria Island but had not visited the outlet in GRA so it was an outing i looked forward to. The setting was nice and the interior, tastefully done. I had the famous 'seafood Okra soup' with nicely pounded yam and i was not disappointed at all. The food tastes as good as it looks....and then some.

“My experience”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

The environment and decor are nice. Food wasn't the greatest. Probably will order something else next time. As I ordered jollof rice and plantain. Price is reasonable. Waiter friendly.

“Great atmosphere, great Nigerian food”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

What a great place to have a delicious Nigerian meal! I'm not Nigerian and only just visited Lagos and a Nigerian friend took me here (a place he used to go to often with friends). The atmosphere is great, the food is great, all around just a great place to eat. Last time I was there I had the Seafood Okro with Eba which was just delicious! If you like okra you will love this dish. (Just be mindful to bring cash because foreign cards will not work.)

“Good food - iffy service”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Food is authentic. Nigerian food cooked mostly Yoruba style. Good quality and quantity. Service ranges from ok to abysmal. On our last visit, we left without eating as the wait time between order and arrival of the food exceeded an hour.
