“Typical Indian style eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The Dosai is excellent. Everything is freshly prepared and the chef will accomodate your own preference very comfortably, The restuarant is rustic and partly outdoors. Reasonably priced. Great selection. Also has chinese cuisine.

“Great Indian food, Great atmosphere, Great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The experience we had the first time we ate at Khana Khazana was so good, we went back again during our four day stay in Accra. The dosas, gravies, rices were flavorful and portion size was good.

Although the restaurant is a bit hidden, follow the directions on reviews here and you'll have no problem finding it. Six of us ate and had a drink and the total was GHS81 (US$42) - what a deal!

“Excellent Indian food and good outdoor ambiance.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We liked the food and ambiance so much (as well as the prices!) that we ate here twice during our four night visit to Accra.

The dosas we excellent as were the sauces and rices. Lots of choices for vegetarians. Six of us ate and had a drink for a total of 81 cedis!

It's a little tough to find, but just head to the Engen petrol station on Kojo Thompson Road (near the National Museum) and walk through the petrol station on the right side and you can't miss it.

Enjoy!

“More people need to know about this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I notice every review starts with the same explanation in case you don't believe us: get dropped off at the Engen petrol station on Kojo Thompson Road in Adabraka, and walk round the right hand side to the large empty lot way up the back, where there are two pavilions set in a secluded grassy expanse - the outdoor dining area and the outdoor kitchen.

It's the most authentic Indian restaurant I've been to outside the subcontinent, with a comprehensive South Indian menu from idli and dosa to curry and biryani, served on comfortingly tinny steel plates. It's all plastic tables and neighbourly cats lurking underfoot, so you feel free to make a mess of things. If I didn't overwhelmingly prefer North Indian to South Indian in general I might give it five out of five, but as it is I don't know South Indian well enough to trust my own judgement. Rely on your own and enjoy.

“The best Indian in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

If you are lucky enough to find the place (it is tucked in behind an Engen petrol station), do not be put off by appearances. Food is great, they serve the traditional south Indian dosas (thin crepes with a variety of toppings). We went there with a large group of people and service was very slow and confused, but smaller parties of people next to us where served fast and looked really happy. Good quality curries and much better than its competitor, Tandoor.
