Lovely place

I love the ambience at wakkis. Service is great and the employees from the entrance are very friendly. You also get to meet loads of expats and foreigners living and visiting Abuja. I look forward to my next visit. You should too.

This restaurant comes highly recommended but I cannot say why. Focuses on Indian food but from what I tasted, the spices used were not Indian, but mixed with local chilli. Very limited drink selection.

This is just a nice restaurant but the staffs are not the most attentive. Method of service is rather too mechanical.

Nice ambience. Well prepared dishes. However, the takeaway lamb dhansak I ordered was bland and the black lentils were so watery, I had to throw the entire dish in the bin!

If you are looking for sizzling exotic dishes Wakkis is your best port of call in Abuja. The surrounding and decor look simple but elegant. The food is very tasty and the different dishes mostly Asian are so delicious that the first visit would always tempt you to return again and again. The eatery is sparkling clean clean and since...

This is a popular place for expats and locals alike. We have spent many fun evenings away from the office with friends, colleagues and clients enjoying Wakkis together.
