Chinese food is available almost everywhere in Ghana from local 'check-check' (the name originates from the checked plastic takeaway bag used to pack the food) serving fried rice to classy Chinese restaurants offering dim sum and a diverse range of Chinese cuisine. Most Chinese restaurants run separate lunch and dinner services, from 12.30pm to around 3pm then from 6pm until late. Some restaurants, like Noble House, run home delivery services. Most of the restaurants below are in Accra/Tema aside from Noble House in Kumasi and Han Place in Takoradi.
Other Asian cuisine, especially sushi and tepanyaki, has become inreasingly popular and is served at several places in Accra. See our Asian restaurants sections for a comprehensive list of Thai and Japanese food.
