One of my favorites in Ghana. The food is always prepared just right! Eating local dishes on the patio is a real treat. Their staff is great and the food and service are wonderful. Buka is a treat.

Came here after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Called ahead and made a reservation which I am glad we did as for a Saturday lunch time it was full. I had fufu with Guinea fowl groundnut soup.

We were taken here by a Ghanaian colleague to sample some local delicacies; the menu is varied but not too large that a table of four could not get a good range of dishes.

some people come here for the best local food. it's not even in top 5 in Accra, probably not even top 10. the location is nice, the food is decent and overpriced. recommended just for tourists that will stay no more than a day or two in Accra.

Friends took me to Buka while in Accra and I liked it there. The portion was generous (as is common in Ghana)and the Fetri Deti was nice! The goat meat was really tender and the crab was good too.

Nice African variety to choose from. And enjoyed the final meal selected although it came in a little cold rather than "steaming" hot!. Overall, had quite a great time there; available space to park your ride and comparatively safer. Interesting waiter who was helpful.

The place never disappoints and I always enjoy the authentic West African cuisine on the menu, though it is usually Nigerian and Ghanaian. Always try their ginger or sorrel juice. Love the peppered snails.
