We're pretty adventurous eaters, so were happy to try the pan-African food at Buka. We tried a couple different fish dishes with flavored rice and beans. (I can't recall the names, we basically threw ourselves on the mercy of the waitress.) Everything was delicious, and they were quite accustomed to western tourists. The credit card machine was "broken," so we... More

Much talked about but in the end disappointing - most of what we wanted was not available despite it only being 7.00pm

We've had a couple of lovely meals here and will definitely be going back. We have tended to go there for a light, healthy evening meal (fish with veg, and fresh fruit juice to drink) but it looks like there's a varied menu and lots of more hearty options as well. It's outside so can be hot, but the eating... More

Upscale restaurant, where local professionals eat and experience traditional Ghanaian cuisine and beverages. Very knowledgeable servers who described the various dishes - very helpful! Food was delicious (and an adventure for this Obruni). Dining room is up a very steep stairway, but the climb is worth every step. The view across the city is very nice, and the breeze is... More

If you are a Nigerian or the type that love the Nigerian dishes, then Buka is the place to be. The restaurant is located at Osu. Its a very popular restaurant that can be easily located when you get to osu. Try Buka, when you visit Accra.

A little pricey but overall the food is great and the service isn't bad. This is I guess what you'd consider a 4-star restaurant.

went with the family and it was cool. They got your Regular Ghanaian dishes, fufu, jollof, banku, tilapia, fried plantain etc. The palm wine in a bottle was nice. Service is ok. You can see the effort they try to put in to make dining enjoyable for you.

I was there with my wife, my 8-year-old daughter and my father-in-law (who's from Ghana). We really enjoyed the place (on a rooftop) and the authentic African food.
