Wakkis, a well-established Abuja favorite. Mostly expats and Nigerian professionals eat here. I always feel comfortable here. Wood-bamboo heavy decor. Solid, well cooked Indian food. Fresh juices like pineapple and watermelon. The music is sometimes too loud.

I visited Wakkis early on in my move to Abuja and I am eager to go back. I had heard mixed reviews about the place but I very much enjoyed the downstairs seating. At the start of the meal not many were in the restaurant, however, by the end of a full meal the place was packed so I was... More

Liked Indian food availability. But, smell of fish all around makes you uncomfortable, if you are a vegetarian. Space is very good, seating is absolutely uncomfortable.

(This is an update to my previous review) After dining at wakkis several more times, and three weeks of sampling Abuja restaurants, I can restate that they serve some of the best food in the city – period. And for Indian cuisine, the best by far. All the entrees my colleagues and I tried were delicious by international standards, and... More

Having heard a lot about this restaurant I had to pay a visit. The location is set well off the main road but fairly hidden away. Inside in large open area with an open chef station, there is also upstairs seating. The food out the clay oven is really good and tasty. Great tandoori chicken, the Chicken curry was ok,... More

We went twice there for dinner, because everything was so good. Don't miss the barbecued chicken and lamb. The bench seating was not great, but the great food and reasonable prices made up for it.
