Food is good. They don't deliver (at least that's what I was told when I called). Service is average and needs improvement. The place could use a facelift and more lights.

They have really nice continental and intercontinental dishes. Their white soup and seafood okra are really nice. The ambience is really relaxing. It's a nice place for a brunch or dinner or even small gatherings e.g. a bridal shower.

The environment was good, good view too. The food was also nice but not outstanding. A bit pricey for what we ordered.

We ordered the seafood okra which was sublime. It could do with more pepper but that was easily rectified with more spicy sauce. Would definitely return to try other delicacies I could see and smell. Yum.

Here you get the real Nigeria meals, really delicious. Interior looks like a typical African place, Service is good but not outstanding. Bring cash when you go there or you have a local credit card.

This is the best place to get authentic Nigerian cuisine. I love the fact they have been able to maintain standards for almost 20 year or more. Fantastic food with a take away option. Please try it when visiting Lagos.

Yellow Chilli, a simple small restaurant serving authentic Nigerian food, seems to be a favorite among locals. This place was almost full when I visited for dinner. We had Jollof rice, spicy snails, breaded prawns, and chapman drink. Jollof rice was too good, so was the Chapmandrink. Would definitely like to go again.

Decent place. Good food. Lots of varieties. Reasonably priced. Nothing posh though. A simple restaurant. Good place to visit with friends because you can let loose and have fun while waiting for your meal to be served. Certainly not a place to take a love interest or someone you want to impress
