Located in the centre of Ghana, Kumasi is known for its cool year-round temperatures as much as it is for its delicious Ashanti cuisine. If you’re planning a trip and want to know where to try the best food, take a look at our round-up of the best spots in town.
The unique thing about Noble House is not just their delicious Chinese and Indian dishes, but the fact that they also offer the best customized catering services for large, medium or small and private individuals. If you find it complicated to keep your selections limited to a specific number, Noble House is the place for a great slate of menu options. Their branch in Kumasi is as welcoming as their spot in East Legon.
The long-established family business Mckeown has a humble passion for making food that reminds you of home cooking. They offer catering services for wedding parties, birthday celebrations, marriage and services and other occasions. You can place an order for their tasty jollof rice for up to 500 people for your banquet hall event or lunch delivery box type for your business meeting.
This spot encompasses a pool, bar and hotel that make a stay in Kumasi a warm treat, but their restaurant will have you coming back for more. Take a seat and enjoy relaxing while you leaf through their great menu. Both international and local dishes here are mouthwatering, so you won’t be disappointed anytime you pick from among their list.
The same creators who made Santoku Japanese Restaurant in Accra are responsible for the appeal of The View Bar and Grill in Kumasi. This design-rich restaurant with its extensions of bar and lounge has been winning hearts since it opened in mid-December 2013. The View Bar and Grill’s cuisine is managed by talented chef Danny Cornwell; once a private chef for the Rolling Stones and Elton John. The restaurant serves the best of British, French and steakhouse delicacies you can find in the region.
This spot is at a very convenient location on the Southern Bypass, Ahodwo; an eight-minute drive from the centre of Kumasi by the Melcom Road. They have a wonderful menu of tasty food choices, and their buffets are so good you’ll write home about your experience. Don’t miss out on their live band music all weekend.
Right near the Kejetia Playground and Adehyeman Station, you’ll find the popular Kumasi tourist site; Adehyeman Gardens. Getting to the Kumasi Station from here is not as complicated, and is set to be even more straightforward after the completion of the nearby Kejetia market complex. A great alternative spot to grab fufu and groundnut soup, or banku and okra sauce before you catch your bus in time from Kumasi.
