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 to eat. The restaurant sitting area is large, clean and airy. The staff are friendly... More

i love the setting at asanka delight but the food is poor especially the fufu. you would usually find lumps or what we call in twi "aba' in the fufu. i think the should take time to prepare the dish and not let the inflow of customers affect the quality of the food. any way since then i really don't...

I was taken to Asanka Local on the first occasion on a Tuesday as I wanted to experience a proper local place with good food. We stood at the counter and I chose banku and okro stew/ soup which was well done and tasty. My companions dishes were equally good . The service was good and the prices very reasonable.... More

Came today and we had goat, fried tilapia and chicken with chips. Larges beers and other drink which came to 110 cedis. Took a while for the food to come but it was fine as we were not in a rush. Definitely a good place to try Ghanaian specialities.

This is a really cool place to eat. We had a great server and the food was really good. The banku and tilapia were great, but it took so long before we finally got it. Still a good place to eat if you're in the area.

Good food for rock-bottom prices, though the taste could be better. Was the rave some years ago and i don't know what happened. Good environment, better than most places that serve only local food.

Since they opened a fews years ago I've been eating here when I want authentic Ghanaian food. The setting is very simple like grandma's kitchen and drinks are really cold. I recommend the fufu with snails green soup and mushrooms.
