This is a good restaurant for a quick meal when one is busy. We enjoyed the chicken and chips and the overall service was good.

I liked the spicy chips n chicken I had here plus the service was quite fast despite the large number of people constantly ordering food. The interior can be improved upon though.

While volunteering in Accra we visited this restaurant on many occasions. We would always choose to dine in as it was air conditioned so we would escape the heat for a short period of time. As the restaurant was located on the second floor it was nice to watch the bustling street below. On most occasions we would have the... More

Papaye is a very busy restaurant. They have both takeaway and sit in options. You may need to wait for sometime to get a table on the weekends. The boneless grill fish was superb and the fried chicken was good. Never try the grill chicken as it looks ungrilled. The fried rice or even the chips is too huge serving... More

The first day I heard about Papaye restaurant since setting my foot in Ghana, I must have been day dreaming until I heard about it from a close friend who had visited the place some few days ago. I was very much determined to satisfy my curiosity and so I took some time off from my busy schedule and ate... More

This place is an institution in Osu, they have been making chicken and rice before the road was paved and oxford street became Oxford street in Osu. Great value, very large portions and still packed every day. If you want a great value, quick tasty chicken and rice then this is the place to come.

The grilled chicken with fried rice is a good value at 12 GHC. Moist chicken and huge qty of rice. Service is speedy, even at lunch. It's pretty consistent, although I've never tried the fried chicken, which seems to be popular among Ghanaians.
