OK, so even when there is scarcity of ripe plantain (anyone who knows red-red will appreciate this and relate better) they served a hot sizzling one - good eating place!

This restaurant was clean, very much acceptable by tourists such as me but we were looking for Ghanaian food recommended by our native born guest.

Lots of different dishes were ordered with liberal side dishes and variety of drinks. service was great, no mix-ups, a few delays but that was understandable owing to the particular dishes concerned. Overall service was great

What a great local restaurant to taste traditional authentic food. The atmosphere and decor was amazing and the food was really a taste of Ghana. The food was well prepared and presented a real treat. Staff was friendly and accommodating, considering we were a group of 12 they did very well.

Buka offers a wide range of local and continental African foods with a touch of class. Prices quite high though

I always frequent this place each time I am in Accra. Love the African feel of the place. Loads of bamboo, wood, plants and natural. Top of that great food!

Nice ambiance if you want to go basic. Awful food. Sorry- that's really the best I can say. Good Guinness. Clean loo. Mm mm... Struggling to be positive.

We came here for dinner on a week night. It was busy and seemed quite popular. My friend had the crab soup and I had a fish stew. It was real traditional African food... which I think we underestimated! It was OK, but not the meal out we'd anticipated.
