Came with friends for a birthday. We ordered three tilapia and 1 grilled chicken. We were then told the order will take 30 minutes to cook. Suggested we ordered some starters. Two gizzards and yam chips were ordered which tasted nice. Dinner was great. During paying, the waiter had missed the starters from the bill but asked we pay. Something... More

Good food. Love the place. Nice hangout for evening chills. Recommend it for people who want to have a chilled evening without running into loads of people.

The restaurant is very pretty! Trendy styles are combined with classical African styles in the interior. Unfortunately the waiter made some mistakes with our food and did not apologize or correct the mistakes. I would give it 5 stars if the service was better ;)

The waiter was more interested in watching the football match than in getting our order. Food was very average. ambiance was just ok.

Came here for a school reunion dinner for 25 old classmates from back in the day! 1975 since you ask. Started with some super-spicy chichinga aka meat kebabs. I say "meat" because it's difficult to be more specific. It tasted pretty good if you like it spicy, but, like the curate's egg, there was a fair amount of inedible gristle... More

If I was just grading the food, I would give this place 4 stars. I was quite happy with my fufu and light soup. However, my waiter was very unfriendly. I had just arrived in Ghana 3 days prior and so I was not familiar with many of the foods. I was trying to ask questions about the menu (since... More

My husaband and I met a large group at Buka and shared a buffet style meal with colleagues. The food was quite good as well as the service. We really enjoyed the open-air seating on the second level during the evening.

the restaurant is upstairs out in the open with fans to keep you cool. the food is traditional Ghanaian and Nigerian and was really tasty and good value. the environment is great, relaxing and efficient. I went for lunch and the place was full of local business people, always a good sign!

I requested African food and this restaurant was recommended. The decor is authentic and would have looked fantastic in the last. In need of a leak of pain and some renovation. The waiting time was far too long but the food was worth the wait. It delivered my objectives and I guess I will go back.

I was in Accra on business but went here for lunch with friends. This was my favorite meal of the whole trip. The guinea fowl meat was tender and easy to pick from the bones with your fingers. The groundnut soup was spicy and flavorful. The fufu, served in the soup and not on the side, was a mix of... More
