Azmera Restaurant: Home of Authentic Ghanaian Cuisine

Authentic and Traditional; these are the two words that will come to mind once you enter into Azmera Restaurant. This colourful establishment conveniently situated within the Roman Ridge vicinity, close to Kotoka International Airport and Dzorwulu, presents a dazzling array of local Ghanaian food. It is without a doubt the one stop venue for all the tasty Ghanaian dishes you want to enjoy.

Ten years down the line, her restaurant has become a high class dining and catering service provider in the country.

Azmera is an exclusive and splendid addition to the chains of restaurants in Ghana. The idea is simple: provide a comfortable and unique place to escape from the stress of everyday life and enjoy fun – casual dining experience. Once you step into the one-level open space restaurant, you are effortlessly drawn to the authenticity and originality Azmera exhibits. The touch of African wax print as furniture coverings, curtains and ceiling covers and traditional cooking equipment really takes you back and stirs up a nostalgic feeling.
