West Hills Mall consolidated its reputation as Accra’s most alluring destination for hot, ready-to-eat foods with the opening at its popular food court of one of the country’s classiest patisseries - the ‘New York Sizzlers Pastries & Ice Cream’.
The mall’s food court, already the toast of patrons from a mixed-bag of social categories across communities in Accra West and beyond is home to seven exclusive delicatessen and eateries and, with the arrival of the patisserie, has become a very compelling pull for Accra’s biggest family shopping centre.
After trading for only a few days, patrons say the arrival of New York Sizzler Pastries and Ice Cream was long overdue, underscoring the thinking that there had always been a yearning for oven-fresh baker’s confectioneries in the communities of Accra West all along.
“What inspired our coming to Accra’s trendiest family mall is the sudden realisation that there is no up-to-standard pastry outlet anywhere across the catchment area and in the communities of Accra West. So, what we now have here at West Hills Mall is a one-stop-shop for all types of pastries,” Mr. Prosper Kumi, CEO of New York Sizzlers Pastry and Ice Cream told reporters at the opening event.
Located next to the Basilissa restaurant on the food court, the Sizzler pastries specializes in general pastry dishes like samosa, croissants, brioche, waffles, pies, quiches and cakes. The gourmet choices are extended to include sandwiches and cookies, along with the house’s special brand of hot chocolates, coffee, and smoothies.
“We have joined West Hills Mall’s famous food gallery with abundant culinary expertise and experience and our commitment stems purely from ensuring that we promote healthy eating among our patrons….as opposed to the excessive oily and fatty diets most people are accustomed to”, Mr. Kumi said.
He announced that the patisserie is open to customers throughout the week, from 8:00am till 8:00pm on weekdays and from 8:00am till 10:00pm on weekends and operates a large volume of takeaway services but also has the facility to cater for a limited number of eat-in customers.
New York Sizzlers Pastries and Ice cream joins an exciting crop of new stores which was introduced into West Hills Mall’s tenant portfolio over the past ten months and which has greatly enriched the shopping experience of shoppers and patrons, even within the restrictive social environment of COVID 19.
UK Brands is a new retail chain that signed up at West Hills Mall late last year and has fast evolved into one of the most fancied clothing retailer in the country, offering assorted UK branded clothing at affordable prices.
UK Brand’s mission has been to provide the average Ghanaian with quality clothing, and use its business to radically change the wrong mentality that quality brand new clothing at shopping malls must be expensive.
Then there is Jocent, another fashion store, a successful Ghanaian-owned retail outlet which initially tested the market with stores in Adum, Kumasi and later progressed into trading in the malls, beginning with its home centre, Kumasi City Mall, before joining West Hills Mall last November.
At West Hills Mall, Jocent’s specialty has been to provide quality clothes for ladies, men and kids from all over Accra at affordable prices. The magnet in Jocent’s shop floor at West Hills Mall may be the varied range of clothing on offer every day of the week: casual, formal, smart casual, shoes and underwear for all sizes and ages.
Banana Home, a superbly stocked home deco store, joined the West Hills Mall family in early December… just in time to avail itself to waiting patrons during the festive season.

The mall’s newest furniture people, AJ Boaz, is already a household name at West Hills Mall having entered the retail market with their first store, a footwear shop, two years ago. The new store deals exclusively in quality upholstery, living room furniture and accessories.
Another exciting new entrant to West Hills Mall is Divine Organic Hub, a health and beauty specialist which, after a successful exhibition at the mall, decided to have a permanent presence for the benefit of its patrons. They opened for business in November last year offering a rare range of organic products including the black seed, flaxseed, chai seed, coriander seed, carrot oil, avocado oil and rosemary oil.
The Addos, is an afro café and restaurant, which makes a lot of difference at West Hills Mall after literally ‘pounding’ its way into the food court last year. The restaurant headlines around town as one of the most irresistible ‘fufu’ joints in the whole of Accra.
