Lovely place, excellent meals! Seems to be recently rebranded to "The New Grace Restaurant". Besides the really great customer service, the food is excellent. If you're a lover of authentic Ghanaian dishes, you should definitely make time to check this place out!For our first time here, we tried 'banku and tilapia' and 'banku with okro stew' ... Definitely coming back to try the rest! Highly recommended.

Authentic African (Ghanaian) cuisine with decent menu variety and small dine-in space. Soup dishes tend to be on the spicy side. Limited street parking. You'll be lucky to get someone on the phone but if you're on-site you're be please with the food!

The staff was quiet, but very friendly and the food was pretty good. I had a friend in middle school who I used to go home with after school and she always had awesome African food. I haven't seen her in years or had those meals since, but I saw on Grace African Restaurant's menu that they had some of the same recipes my friend used to make for me. I knew I had to go and try that food again after all these years. It was just an awesome meal and a trip down memory lane for me. I recommend this place!

Of course it's me again, with some more Waakye. This is a must when I go to Ghanaian restaurants. Grace's African Restaurant did not fail me with this delicious tasting Waakye.

A great place for regional Ghanaian cuisine! I stumbled upon this gem randomly after moving to the neighborhood. The Food takes a while to prep since it's freshly made to order, but it is worth every minute of wait. I'd recommend turkey tail as appetizer, and Fufu with goat for main dish.Tip: the food is delightfully spicy

I had the goat meat light soup with fufu and it was delicious! The meat was very tender and the soup was a little spicy with lots of flavor. Can't wait to go back! Yum yum yummy!

I was in Chicago and looking for a great African restaurant to mark my stay in chicago.guess what I found this place on the web and went there. The best place in Chicago to eat when it come to west African cuisine. I will definitely come again. Tightly recommend. A menu will cost you $15-$20.But trust me you will be satisfied.

I love the authentic culture it brings to Chicago, both in the food and atmosphere upon entrance to the restaurant. This is truly an amazing place to dine and have great conversation/ dialogue regarding various topics around the world. Customer service is fabulous. Just remember some food consist of being spicy, however ask and maybe the cook can fix you a special non-spicy dish. I enjoyed this place for years, just go visit and see the beauty in the food, music and decorations within this place.

I've been going to this restaurant for like 4 years now. I love this place for their banku and okra soup, It takes about 30 min from hyde park to get there but I don't mind the drive. I'll give it 4 star for now, when they start accepting cards or zelle I'll give it a 5.

Great food with unique flavors! I would recommend pickup as the space leaves a lot to be desired. Pricing on the menu would be good as well.

Food was good. Customer service was not bad. I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted chicken or fish so the guy served me both. That was cool.

Great food, nice people and very good location. They need to keep the noise down a bit though. Also, the kitchen staff need to dress a bit better. Overall, good experience.

Customer service is poor, most of the menu was not available when I went in after asking over the phone what they had in stock. Palm soup was tasty however I would not go back.

Review №24

This place used to be popular and their food was once very much respected. Today, not so much.Clientele as well as levels of service have steadily declined due to poor customer services and cleanliness. Yes, if someone told you this place is dirty; they weren't lying.

Food is amazing. Customer service is poor. They should fire the current guy or else their business is headed to failure. They also accept cash only. Because of this, I wasted time going there all the way from pilsen. These people are so backward. Lastly, most of the food on the menu were not even available when I first went there. This place is a joke lol. Lucky they don't have any serious competition in the Chicago area.
