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.

5. +2 Pub & Kitchen

Restaurant, African

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.

6. Adehyeman Gardens

Restaurant, African

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.
