Lovely local fare

The place never disappoints and I always enjoy the authentic West African cuisine on the menu, though it is usually Nigerian and Ghanaian. Always try their ginger or sorrel juice. Love the peppered snails.

The venue is good for local cuisine although they do not always have all items in the menu The location and ambience is good and variety of dishes is adequate. The only downside is that despite having a credit card terminal they prefer cash and give the customer the incorrect impression that the terminal isn't working unless you force them... More

Generally a lovely place to enjoy mostly Ghanaian and Nigerian dishes with a view of the OSU mid skyline and an ambient environment. Loved the dishes especially how it was garnished and the plates they came in .. The General setting of the place is lovely with nice bathroom facilities.. All in all I enjoyed the food and place...

Lovely place, just off Oxford St. Mostly Ghanaian with some Nigerian food. I'm vegetarian and my two friends are not. There's essentially nothing on the menu that's veggie, but they were sweet and accomodating and made me a veggie stew of sorts with rice and plantains. If you eat meat, though, this place is solid. Spacious, good service and fast... More

This restaurant's customer service is at best blah, and at worst atrocious. The waitresses seem checked out and as if they are waiting on you, the customer, to impress them, on a regular day. I tolerated this flaw of the restaurant for a few visits due to the decent to good quality of the food and the business casual lunch... More

I was introduced to Buka on graduation day by my best friend. I absolutely loved its scenery, the pleasant surroundings and once in a while, live music from the patio. I tried the banku and tilapia (really big tilapia) which was so so good. In general, the food, environment, drinks and great friends make it a really pleasant experience and... More

The food I ordered was delicious - I had fish with jollof rice and vegetables and had coconut water to drink. The service was great and all the staff were well mannered and looked after us well. There was a huge choice of food to chose from.
