A positive surprise

I live in Accra since 2012, and have never been there until a friend recommended it. This is kind of a fast food restaurant, but the very good quality. As well, the value for money is excellent. The roasted chicken with rice was so tasty. The amount you pay is nothing compared to the mountain of... read more

Let me start off by saying, "Wow". This food was so tasty and inexpensive for the quantity and taste of food. I had the grilled chicken with fried rice, cole slaw and a side of their garlic sauce. The chicken was topped with a ginger type sauce, delicious. It was a whole plate of food for only 16 Cedis which... More

What a disappointment. We were told to visit this fast food outlet with some seats and lots of chicken. My wife unfortunately can't each flour and won't each meat (yes chicken is meat) so we didn't stay. I was put off by the rubbish on the floor and the unclean tables.

Looking for a decent resturant, with good food, enough to satisfy your hunger, at a moderate price, this is where i recommend. I have been here countless times, with my girlfriend, family, friends, etc. Everything is just okay here

Papaye is a fast food joint which serves large portions of chicken and rice. I eat here alot when looking for good value, fast food. The marinade on the chicken is pretty nice but can be quite salty. Overall though my favourite fast food experience in Osu.

Nothing to write home about - just a local sit-down KFC or Popeyes with waiters. The service was somwhat faster than most places (which isn't saying much).

This is the quintessential rice and chicken go-to in Accra. My family and I have eaten here many, many times and it has always been wonderfully good. A meal is practically big enough for two Westerners. Some people don't realize that there are 3 chicken options: fried, rotisserie, and grilled. The grilled is my favorite: it comes rubbed with a...

Always go to Papaye when I'm in Accra. Very well priced for great chicken, chips and rice! They give huge portions and extras like coal slaw. Be prepared to be stuffed!
