I understand that Asanka locals is quite an old establishment but it seems to have been poorly maintained. The food however was undoubtedly great and also quite affordable. I would go there again, but only for the food.

This restaurant is large, airy, and comfortable. I ordered the red red with fried fish and could barely finish my plate. I had a very healthy portion and it was very good.

Came here with some friends to introduce the local cuisine. What a varied selection. Quick service also. The best of the dishes was fried fish with boiled plantain and palava sauce. So delicious and will be back for more.

This restaurant is a brisk 7 minute walk from Oxford Street in Osu but worth the trip. The cuisine is authentically and mouthwateringly Ghanaian. There's so much variety that you have a chance to try anything you've heard of about Ghanaian food and always wanted...More
