What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes. - May 2019


There are no American fast-food restaurants. Generally, restaurants are expensive and are of low quality for the price. There is a new tapas place within walking distance of the Peninsula town homes with the only decent pizza I've found here. It is a breath of fresh air. There are some fancy and expensive restaurants at the luxury hotels. But generally speaking, you have to cook from scratch every meal. Around the current Embassy downtown, there are very few restaurants available for lunch. There is a surprisingly good Indian place a 10 minute walk away (you need to walk in a group). Otherwise, very slim pickings. You will need to pack your lunch. - Jun 2016


Limited options, but reasonably priced. Italian (Japello's); grill and theme nights at Yacht Club; Airways hotel (international menu with great coffee shop); Japanese (Ichizen in Town, and steakhouse above Anderson's Foodland); Ela Beach Hotel; and Lamana Hotel (some Indian options) are best. Also there is Chinese (Fui Gui and a couple others) and Holiday Inn. For cafes, only 3 options: Airways (best), Brian Bell (clean, not bad), and Boroko Foodworld. Airways has really good cakes and breads. For fast food there is Big Rooster. Pizza at Japello's and Ela Beach Hotel is very good. - Jun 2008
