The best restaurant in Accra... possibly in Ghana... as we travel a lot and live to eat in a great range of places, we were excited to spend a week in Ghana to sample the well known west African dishes. While a good number of them were tasty enough (red red, lamb with peppers) we found this Ethiopian restaurant. It is simply amazing. Small (intimate?) and nicely decorated, the welcome and the ambience is fantastic. The food, all freshly prepared and locally sourced, it absolutely world-class. Each dish, selected from a classic buffet with specially made earthenware pots, was a delight, all different flavours and textures. We’ve eaten all of our meals out and this place is so good we are going back again. Nothing else in Accra compares. This is a gem, and is now among my “favourite places on earth” to eat!

The food at Simret is excellent. Service was outstanding and we had a lovely conversation with the owner. The only negative was that the restaurant was a bit quiet, maybe because coronavirus was just kicking off but I’d encourage everyone to visit this very good restaurant.

Thank you. The restaurant is maintaining social distancing but some of our regulars who were in fear of COVID are now gingerly taking their first steps into the restaurant experience

The food at Simret is so good we ate here twice during a one week stay in Accra. The owner and staff are very welcoming and make the experience special. All of the dishes were delicious and the chocolate cake and coffee are out of this world. I would highly recommend Simret.

Simret is our favourite restaurant in Accra! Even when we came to the restaurant for the first time in 2020 the restaurant was about to close but they still opened the buffet for us. The food is very fresh and delicious, always prepared with a lot of love. Apart from the meat dishes, there are a lot of vegan options as well. In Addition, we can really recommend the selfmade honey wine. The service is excellent as well, very kind and welcoming reception. The restaurant in general has a cozy atmosphere with some nice music in the background. This May, we celebrated our marriage at Simret and the restaurant opened for us even outside their working hours. We were welcomed and served as if we’re part of the family. It was such a beautiful day and the food was on point as always! Thanks so much. ❤️ Warm regards, Edward and Fran

My wife, two children and I dined at Simret a few nights ago for the first time (having seen their ratings on trip advisor). Every aspect of our experience was delightful. The Ethiopian cuisine was authentic, flavourful, and filling. Our waiter was very friendly, professional and attentive. What we enjoyed most, besides the food was the interesting conversation we had with the proprietor, whom shared the story of the beautiful union that led Simret being named for her daughter. Simret is an Ethiopian home from home.

As an Ethiopian, I was surprised to find such an authentic Ethiopian restaurant away from home. The freshly served buffet with a variety of options including Vegan was so delicious. And another best part was, diners were invited to go for more of the delicious food. Simret restaurant is not just another restaurant but a home away from home. Thanks for making my stay in Accra wonderful!

I was there two times and was welcomed with open arms by the kindest people! The atmosphere is cozy and familiar. The buffet is presented nicely and offers a large variety of food that will make everyone happy. They have plenty of options both with meat and vegetarian+vegan. So I can highly recommend giving this restaurant a visit if you live in Accra or if you’re visiting!

The service and friendliness of the staff were excellent. I felt welcomed and valued. The food was good. Simret is one of the top three restaurants we have visited in Accra. Also, it is probably a good idea to call ahead before visiting.

Amazing amazing authentic food. Was sad my stomach was full so quick. Honey wine was amazing too. Added some sparkling water to make it less sweet but it was sooo goood still. It's a quiet night type of feel. Homey I just want to eat out type of experience. Reasonably priced as well.

I've had great Ethiopian food across the United States and Simret ranks among the best. Nice selection of classic Ethiopian dishes, tasty Injera bread, sweet honey wine and nice tea with good chocolate cake. The service was fast and very friendly and the owner was quite personable. I recommend wholeheartedly and look forward to my next visit when back in Accra.

I can't believe I would actually enjoy an Ethiopian till I got to Simret - A Taste of Ethiopian Restaurant. I went for two rounds and I was so full that I just slept off when I got home. I advice every family to come to this Restaurant because it is a very family friendly restaurant. The host is very hospitable and respectful and the staffs are the best.

I'm new to Accra and have been discovering a few nice restaurants around town. My favorite by far is Simret - The taste of Ethiopia. They have a buffet with great meat and vegan dishes. I go every week and sometimes order take out for the weekend. If you are in Accra and looking for tasty food then definitely try Simret.

My partner and I tried Simret on a whim and fell in LOVE. From the owner's energy to the service to, of course, the FOOD-- this is a MUST visit when in Ghana. We eat plant based but there is certainly something for everyone. I have had Ghanian food all over NY, in Atlanta and in Miami so far. The authenticity of this place is unmatched. HIGHLY recommend. jabari + shanelle from the states
