Really lovely evening. Excellent food Very reasonably priced. We choose 4 different curries and shared all of them between the 4 of us. So great opportunity to try a variety. All tasty and well cooked.

This became our go to Indian restaurant during our 2.5 years living in Abuja. Food is truly authentic and very good quality. Dined in the restaurant once but usually had the food delivered as a take away delivery. Asquo the manager is a great guy and always looks after you. Restaurant can get a little bit warm if you dine... More

This restaurant was my savior. as i am a vegetarian and there are only 2 or 3 restaurants in the whole Abuja that serves veg dishes. Thank you to the chef and the manager for taking special care of my special requests on meals. And the food is delicious as well.

I am always looking forward to... More

I went here with a group of friends. It wasn't busy and almost everyone there wasn't local. The food was okay, priced appropriately compared to the other local restaurants and was tasty enough. The portions were a little underwhelming. Overall, a bit average.

I have been to Wakkis since 2002 from their old place. However was surprised to see the standards coming down drastically. In the past two visits, when I ordered for black label they served only 2 shots and later informed that their stock is finished. Surprised to see a fast moving alcohol not being stocked. Particularly the same thing happened... More

I would say not all food I found was god but surely they have nice Indian food , of course you need to tell them on the level of spice ,otherwise it could be very spicy . I found it bit noisy if you are coming with family and also quiet dark , which I think is normal in Abuja.
