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

We had a group buffet dinner at Buka. I was concerned when booking due to the smallish number of dishes, however the buffet had enough variety and flavours. We all enjoyed our meals and were pleased to have something a different and better quality than at the conference hotel we were at. The setting is homely, and the atmosphere was... More

Great food. Open air. Many tourists. Came for dinner during a conference. It's a nice neighborhood restaurant. The staff was very nice and patient with us as we navigated the menu.

My spouse asked for light soup with fufu whilst i had garri, orishirishi with okra. Had to return the okra twice as it wasn't what was expected and ended up eating the garri with stew. The light soup had loads of mushrooms in it with a piece of meat, crab and smoked fish. Though the quantity served is filling, we... More
