The palm wine is a hallmark, not to mention the great beans and fried fish dishes. A place where the elite crowd in Accra congregate.

I usually enjoy my Buka visits. The food is tasty and I'm generally happy. Well today I had a complaint about my food and got the WORST TREATMENT EVER! I was sitting for almost 15 minutes waiting for a manager to attend to my issue. Instead he sent the waiter to tell me that "you should have noticed the problem... More

Well established local eatery in the back streets of Osu. A limited menu with the trade off that our food came in decent time (very quick for Ghanain food in comparison to other places). My party variously enjoyed Tilapia, Guinea Fowl and Goat Light Soup. Our waiter was really good, attentive, proactive and informative. Nice setting too, with a wooden... More

this restaurant is really great. The menu has some really nice dishes on it - good variety and reliably tasty and good value. I once went with a colleague who wanted something specific which was not on the menu and the made it for him! I thought the staff was quality especially in relations to other places in Accra. Friendly... More

The service might not be great but the food certainly is! Every time we go to Ghana this is the place to eat Ghanaian food! Ask for red red with chicken!

Who ever started this review should edit the restaurant name. It's called 'Buka' not Buku. Thank you

The correct name for this restaurant is Buka and not Buku. Having said that, thinking about the restaurant makes me hungry. This is one of the very best places I have eaten traditional African food any where. Here they serve both Nigerian ( called Naija by the fun loving) and Ghanaian dishes. I never miss coming here whenever I am... More

Great restaurant to really dive into the local cuisine. Good service (though slow, I was with a big group). They have a lovely large deck you can eat on - but beware if you do not like heat! We had a table near the kitchen (open concept) - and it was extremely hot (even with all fans going). Overall friendly,... More
