“Tasty local food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

I am definitely not a great fan of Banku, fufu and other Ghanaian food but I like to taste everything and discover new flavours so I accompanied some friends at Asanka.
The place is very clean, service is quite good and there is a variety of Ghanaian dishes. Mostly soups and fufu or banku.
I had groundnut soup with goat and banku. Could not eat all, the plate was very generously served. Was tasty! Not sure if it is the best place for Ghanaian dishes but I kinda like it.
Just know what you want to eat in advance though because they propose a lot of different dishes and the women serving will be looking at you like "Don't you know what you want to eat?" lol
Decoration is quite oldish, nothing very attractive just regular.
Anyway give it a try!

“The perfect restaurant for Ghanian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012

The atmosphere might not be cracking in the ballroom in which tables are set, yet the food is cheap and tasty. They serve most of Ghana's staple dishes, waiting staff is very friendly, and the meals will fill you for a good price. Mostly locally visited I recommend making the leap from Oxford road to visit this place.

“Good place for Ghanian dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2012

The restaurant (located in the Osu area) was recommended to me by a Ghanian colleague about two years ago. Each time I am in Accra and feel like treating myself to a local cuisine I go to Ashanka Local. There are varieties of local food with corresponding soup to go with. Sometimes I buy food and take away to my nearby hotels like Central Hotel, Blue Royale, etc. The setting is good with lots of space. However, sometimes it can be hot as there are only fans to provide cooling on hot days. While on a business trip, I took a colleague to eat there last week. If you are looking for local food in Ghana, Ashanka Local is the place to go.
