I LOVE it at Yellow Chilli V.I. for the ambience. The Ikeja place is a bit of more upscale in service and menu, I got the value... for a modest dining.

Cannot beat Yellow Chilli food but it is best to call ahead so they have your meal ready, otherwise, next ready to wait up to 20 minutes. Nigeria food takes time!

Perfect place to get a good taste of Nigerian kitchen. Prompt service and reasonable prices. Get ready to est your meal on traditional way with your hands.

Yellow chilli was always a favourite of mine when I needed good quality Nigerian food. Last few visits on the island and mainland have been disappointing. Food has been bland and service has been poor. I hope something gets done fast.

I would say medium-high. Most dishes are N3,500 - 6,000.

Between 2,000 to 5,000. It’s a function of what you order for. But 2,800 can get you a decent meal without drink.
