I've been to both locations. Once to the one in VI and several times to the one in Ikeja. I think the one in VI serves larger portions, the one in Ikeja has a nicer atmosphere.

We were invited to a meeting here and it turned out to be a nice surprise. It's probably the most affordable decent place in VI. Food was good. It caters more to a Nigerian pallette, but there are some options that would appeal to non Nigerians. Will definitely go back.

I have tasted virtually every Nigerian dish at this restaurant. The cooking is excellent and great. A great restaurant for family eating especially African dishes. The atmosphere is also great for group dinner or business lunch. A must visit when in Lagos Island.

If you travelling via Lagos Nigeria and you want to have a good local Nigeria delicacies in a relatively good environment then you need to visit Yellow chilli. Best time for lunch is 12noon to 1pm before the place of crowed. Try their okra soup with fish and Garri.

I was there some days ago...the meal was sumptuous! most especially the fried rice and locally prepared goat meat. It was Wow!. It only took about 20 mins before the main meal was served. The could improve in that area.
