  1. Wow! So many restaurants!! And this is making me crave Nigerian food so badly. Haha. I’ve been to a few that you mentioned here (14/35), can’t even pick a favourite but loved Yellow Chili (although they had very slow service the times I visited), had our wedding dinner party at Sheraton and Casper and Gambini and visited a few other places in Ikeja.

    Outside this post, I’d recommend RSVP, Circa Lagos, Sailors (for drinks and small bites), L’aric (for delicious fried rice) and Chopnownow (cheaper end of the scale) – these are a few favourites on the island. There’s also this Korean restaurant in GRA – Hua Han, I think. That’s also quite good.

    1. Awwwnnn, lol.
      What meal did you have at yellow chilli?
      Most of them with slow service usually say they cook the food fresh that’s why.
      Thanks so much for the recommendations ๐Ÿ˜Š
