Only good for as a vantage point for view of Tamale

Food is not worth it. Supposedly they have ice cream downstairs but it is hardly ever working. The only meal I've eaten there was below average. Staff are not very nice. Big party mood in the evening/night. But they will let you climb up on the rooftop during the day if you buy a drink and you have... read more

I tried to go here for lunch and deeply regretted it. The service was terrible and slow and I had to ask the waiter several times to put down the phone so I could talk to him. They seemed to be out of everything on the menu, and we had to change our order 3 times. They also had no... More

We went there 2 different nights, and both nights left disappointed. The first we had good drinks, and ordered food. After waiting 45 minutes for the food to arrive, we asked where it was, and the waitress informed us the restaurant was out of gas and we could only get chicken gizzard kabobs (which were awful!). The second night we... More

We came here on a night out and the ghanians are very friendly sitting us down with them as it was very busy and no chairs free. The men are abit over friendly but you just have to play along and be firm with them. Everyone there gets up and dances,has a few drinks,the bar is downstairs and the dance... More

Kabobs were awful and the lack of lighting and sketchy clientele and incredibly loud music made it undesirable.

I had great Chinese food following a day exploring Tamale. Later that night, we went upstairs to check out the dance floor. It was a crowded sausage-fest, and I didn't feel safe. Seemed like a lot of people were brushing against my pockets (aka pickpocketers). Maybe if the vibe were better I'd come back. It's the most happening place in... More

Crest (Giddipass) Restaurant is a long-standing Tamale locale that is notable for it's rooftop view of the regional capital. In terms of the food, you will find a couple of better places in Tamale, but it's probably the best place you will find that is central (that is, in the centre of town). However, I like to have a drink... More
