Situated in central position in Osu it's easy to find this fast food place. Tasty grilled chicken but rather poor service but after all it's just a fastfood place.

Had takeout fried chicken with fried rice. The chicken was tasty and so was the rice. Neither was greasy like takeout food can often be. A good serving of chicken and so much rice, that it could easily feed two people. Not sure of the...More

Service is non-existing. The female waiter served us wrong drink from what we ordered. She told us she couldn't change it to the one we ordered. Her excuse was that she already had writing it in the computer. We couldn't understand why she just couldn't...More

Ghana's only real fast food chain. Rice tastes like I knew when I was a kid. I like to enjoy the well spiced griled chicken. Even their fried chicken tastes nice. You want an authentic Ghanaian version of fried rice, this is the place to...More

Hello, I live in Minnesota, USA and we have become good friends and mentors to a young man called Caleb who is originally from Accra. He moved here with is father, brother and sister. My oldest son plays soccer with Caleb. We have basically adopted Caleb into our family and we feel he is another one of our sons. Caleb loves to eat my food. I love to cook. Caleb PRAISED the fried rice from your wonderful establishment. I know how to make a basic fried rice, however, I would love to know what are the spices or special ingredients you use so that I can reproduce the recipe for our Caleb. Thanks in advance for any help you can send my way. God bless you. MIchael Ramirez
