(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.

I visit Wakkis as often as I come I to abuja. The food is great, quick and affordable. There are two floors for sitting so there is plenty of space. The staff are friendly and responsive to needs. I often call in my order before I get there so its ready on arrival, this saves business time. The menu has... More

Had a surprise birthday song from the staff and was offered a drink on the house. I enjoyed my birthday dinner and my friends all enjoyed their meal. It's always a great experience eating at Wakkis.

At least that's what residents say, and based on my visit I couldn't disagree. The ambiance is loud and simple, with seating on wooden benches and tables. Service was adequate. The menu has a moderate variety of dishes, vegetarian and non-vegetarian. But they have real clay tandoor ovens, and everything we ordered was delicious. Recommended!

We visited wakkis and had a wonderful meal in a very friendly café-style environment. The décor is nothing special with what are essentially picnic tables. The kitchen is open so you can watch your food being prepared. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was unexpectedly good. Both our entrees were delicious although the samosas were not up to... More
