Their food used to taste better. I was informed the Osu branch has better tasting food so perhaps try that location. Nothing special here. Bland, ordinary tasting rice with equally boring chicken

To be clear: This is a fast food restaurant. They serve up very tasty chicken -- lots of it and lots of rice with it. The food is ready quickly and there is plenty of seating. What's not to like?!?!

It's the parfect alternative to any classic fast food. Here quality, size of dishes and flavour is definitely better! I really enjoyed the grilled chicken with fried rice. The only recommendation is to eat there...the takeaway is very poorly organized and I waited more than 30m.

Papaye has been there for the longest time in Ghana. Ever since I have been a kid. And the one thing I can vouch for is that the taste and standard have been the same through out. I am a big fan of their grilled chicken and fried rice. Especially the ginger paste they apply on the chicken. Their portion... More

Lovely place to sit and eat with family or grab a takeout. Papaye's taste hasn't changed for more than 20 years. Love their tasty grilled chicken with lots of spice and vegetable fried rice. Portion size getting smaller but still ok for one person. Fresh juices are available and I love the tangerine the best.

Pretty good place to go for a quick bite to eat. The grilled and broasted chicken are pretty tasty and usually pretty tender. They offer a really hefty portion of the rice, but it's good. If you're in Ghana, check out Papaye.

Premier takeaway joint on the Cantonments Road, Osu, aka Oxford Street. Fries and Grills galore and a relatively quick service. You will always get food at Papaye till very late. Almost regular fare but with speed and some service.

The food was ok, I ordered fried rice and chicken I can't complain but the customer service needs a little work. I will visit again

Our guesthouse was nearby and we discovered Papaye the first night we were in Accra. As it was within walking distance, the food is excellent and a great value, we ended up eating here almost every night of our 18-day stay. They never disappointed us. One night I did try one of their cheeseburgers and it was better than many... More
