2021 Bolt Food Restaurant Award Winners

23 Mar 2022

Drum roll, please… It’s time to announce the winners of the Bolt Food Restaurant Awards!

This year, we’re crowning winners across 8 different categories to celebrate the diversity and variety of the Bolt Food ecosystem. We’ve crunched the numbers, analysed the data and collected local feedback to determine the winners.

So, without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the award categories and see who scooped the top prizes in 2021.

Loved By Locals

To start our awards ceremony in style, we have the prestigious Loved By Locals award. This celebrates the highest-rated restaurant on the Bolt Food platform, as decided by Bolt eaters.


KFC Ghana – they are loved by the streets because any meal from them is a wise choice.

“Anything from KFC is a “streetwise” decision.”

Rising Star

Now it’s time to shine a light on Bolt Food’s newcomers. We awarded the Rising Star to restaurants that launched in 2021 and saw huge growth and popularity in a short amount of time. These winners are worth keeping an eye on!


Naki’s Kitchen – they showed up on the scene and nothing has been the same since.

“When my friend recommended me Naki’s Kitchen’s Chicken Wings I was gobsmacked. Flabbergast. Awestruck. Whatever you call it.”

Worth the walk

This category celebrates food that’s so good, you’re willing to walk to pick it up! Yes, the Worth the Walk award goes to the restaurant with the highest proportion of pick-up orders and five-star eater ratings.


Papa’s Pizza – whether it’s walking to the door to get your delivery or walking to any Papa’s Pizza branch, they are certainly worth the walk.

“Even a Liverpool fan would walk alone if it’s to pick up that delicious order from Papa’s Pizza. Worth everything. ”

Papa’s Pizza – Worth the Walk Winner

Never Gonna Give You Up

If you find yourself ordering from the same Bolt Food restaurant again and again, then this is the award for you. After all, if something tastes so good, why should we try anything else? Let’s celebrate those repeat orders!


Dough Man Foods –  If tastebuds could talk, they’d be talking about Dough Man Foods all day long.

If you crave it, then Dough Man Foods certainly has it. Absolutely love them.

Treat Yourself 

Whether it’s celebrating a birthday or some good news, special occasions call for a new level of fanciness. The Treat Yourself award recognises Bolt Food’s most popular high-end restaurants. Now, someone pass us the lobster and champagne… 


Vida E Café – with an exciting mix of delicious meals, you are always guaranteed to a treat from Vida E Café.

Whenever, wherever I feel like treating myself I order from Vida E Café. It is 10 out of 10. Okay, maybe even 11. Yup, then it is a 12.

Vida E Café – Treat Yourself Winner

Best Value for Money 

Just because there’s a lower price tag, it doesn’t mean it’s lower quality. Our Best Value for Money category showcases the restaurant where you can get good food at a bargain price. What’s not to like?


Rocomamas – A great breakfast, lunch or dinner at pocket-friendly prices is always a WIN in our books.

Two of my favourite things happen when I shop from Rocomamas on Bolt Food.

1. I eat good food

2. I save money while at it

The King of Jollof

Sometimes, you just can’t beat the taste of Jollof! This award’s given to a restaurant specialising in Jollof with the most 5-star ratings.


Dadabee Fastfood – you can’t get it right with Jollof like Dadabee Fastfood does.

Dadabee Fastfood makes Jollof like mama made it.
