When I was in Abuja recently, I met with a friend and decided to introduce him to Wakkis. I don't go to the capital very often but whenever I do, I always stop in at Wakkis. It's still a little surprising to get genuine Indian flavours in Nigeria and I enjoy every visit. I don't eat meat but they have... More

Went to Wakkis for lunch with colleagues, and really enjoyed this restuarant. Nice ambience and friendly staff. We all enjoyed our food - chicken Tikka, lamb kebab, samoas and Na'an. Great dining option in Abuja.

The menu here is basically Asian but is extremely varied. The quality of food here over the past nine years that I have known this restaurant has been maintained and I was pleasantly surprised to return last year and find nothing has changed. This is a must visit when in Abuja.

Authentic Indian food. Great flavours and range. Accommodating staff. Although the flourescent and dim lighting is a bit irritating.

It is really an awesomely designed place. The mixture of local and Indian personalities in the restaurant adds even more appeal to customers of diverse backgrounds. Food is delicious and always cooked to perfection. The dishes are served in unusual (probably native Indian) containers, which make them look all more attractive. The butter nan is just out of this world.... More

It was hot at a point, for Indian cuisine lovers, this is the place to be. Quiet environment, the decor is above average but needs to be revamped
