Yellow chili has its swag and locations are all well centralized in lagos. Try the sea food okro and then come back for their white soup you can't go wrong😊

I have been there a number of times and the experience has been great. the food is tasty but it does take some time before you are served. I think the wait is worth it though. Sadly i doubt that they deliver unless they do to just locations on the island.

GREAT yam pottage, it has assorted meat and it's of a good consistency, I'd recommend this with a side of plantain.

Afdordable and classy place for lunch. Not mid friendly. Good selection of local dishes. Try their snail you will not regret. Staff are friendly but could be in your face sometimes.

Yellow Chilli is a nice Nigerian food restaurant. The portion of the food is good and taste beautiful. It opens even on Sundays,which is great as most food places are closed. They have a wide variety of Nigerian food served in decent appealing presentation. Price is fair. Value for money.

I am such a foodie and when I want traditional nigerian foods, Yellow Chilli satisfiesmy cravings well. You should try their sea food okra with pounded yam.

I visited this restaurant again after 3 years. Decided to order the famous seafood okra. It was okay. To be honest the best part of my meal was the stewed goat meat I ordered as an additional side. The portions are really large and good value for money. Visited the VI branch and noticed everyone takes away or orders in... More

Yellow Chilli Restaurant.....absolutely brilliant dining. Whether on the Island or in Ikeja the prospect of a meal at Yellow Chilli is one that I look forward to every time i have the opportunity. The Otong Soup or Seafood Okro or the Seafood Jollof with Plantain.... Or even the Spicy Stewed Goat meat need I go on. You can't go wrong... More

Very nice food. They have very nice rice likened to Jamaican or jerking rice. Their okro soup is superb. Place is always crowded at lunch time but you can order your food and have it delivered to you.
