Hidden in a corner off Oxford Street in Accra's Osu subarb, you would wonder how it got heavily patronised until you eat there. With neatly dressed servers and a comfortable sitting arrangement, the good tasting dishes are an augmentation.

I went here for the second time and it had not changed since the first time. Nigerian food at its worst. I the moimoi I had was clearly frozen and you could taste at. Plus it was frozen in the middle. I sent it back. Never again.

We had a family luncheon for about 30 friends and the food was like grandma would cook it and the service was smart with very courteous waiters. Everyone left with a smile of satisfaction approving our choice of eatery. 21 gun salute Buka.

Whilst on a business trip our group reserved the whole upper floor for an informal buffet dinner. The food was varied, tasty and copious. The atmosphere conducive to interaction. The staff ready to answer all our questions. I would recommend this inexpensive and authentic restaurant for group dinners.

The food was great and super inexpensive. Service was actually quite good, which was more than I experienced at some other restaurants. Pretty big place, so seating shouldnt be an issue.

They have cuisines from diverse nationalities, hence people from different countries love eating there. The service was fast, staff are friendly, the environment was neat. They had different Nigerian Soup, I thought that was nice too. I tried the Wakye and Goat meat and it was delicious...
