Kabobs were awful and the lack of lighting and sketchy clientele and incredibly loud music made it undesirable.

I had great Chinese food following a day exploring Tamale. Later that night, we went upstairs to check out the dance floor. It was a crowded sausage-fest, and I didn't feel safe. Seemed like a lot of people were brushing against my pockets (aka pickpocketers). Maybe if the vibe were better I'd come back. It's the most happening place in Tamale which isn't saying much because Tamale is absolutely not happening... No real reason to come here except as a stop on the way to Mole National Park.

Crest (Giddipass) Restaurant is a long-standing Tamale locale that is notable for it's rooftop view of the regional capital.

In terms of the food, you will find a couple of better places in Tamale, but it's probably the best place you will find that is central (that is, in the centre of town). However, I like to have a drink there, and use the balcony to take great pics of the town. Westerners are a common sight here - on my last visit, I met Dutch, German, and American tourists, and I have met similar internationals on other visits to the restaurant. Most are going to Mole NP, or heading up to Bolgatanga/Paga.

Many travellers to Tamale probably just want a reasonable meal at a fair price, rather than something upmarket, and in this regard, Crest (Giddipass) ticks all teh boxes.
