Still the most consistent resturant in Abuja....Great food!!

I'd like to think of myself as a foodie so being able to enjoy a meal every time is a must! Wakkis is a great restaurant. It has an open grill style kitchen so if you like to see what's cooking, this is it. The menu is Indian and always very tasty. Great location in Wuse 2 and and you... read more

Really good - go here to get away from the less than acceptable food in the hotels! Laid back and rough and ready but great food

Lives up to its reputation. Reasonably priced. Decent selection on the menu. The menu is Indian. They even had a keema stuffed naan. Now that was a deal. The flavor of this keema naan is comparable to high end Good jonts in India. I am quite sure the chef is proficient with all items on the card. Comfy seating. Something... More

This is a somewhat casual place with just what you need to enjoy a meal. The prices are reasonable... Good value for the money. The wings and other grilled items are very tasty. The South Asian selection is ample and well prepared... Tasty. It is my favorite place for a non-pretentious meal with friends and colleagues.

For really good Indian in Abuja, visit this place. Definitely helped that by the time we ate here, I was pretty over Nigerian food. So yeah, biased review maybe?

Resonable price and original Indian food. Chicken wings and lamd shoulder are so nice. Chapman drink is not too sweet as other restaurants which is good. Try the fresh orange juice. Garlic and cheese Nang are the must.

Food is great, atmosphere is buzzing and service is alright. Would have given it more points but it's a bit to hot there and they need to improve the air conditioning

This is my 8 year olds favourite restaurant and is a favourite for Sunday family outings. The traditional facade gives a nice ambience , coupled with the delicious food makes this a hit with us every time. The service is cheerful though it takes a while to fulfill orders so if you're in a hurry this may not be for... More

I went to Wakkis with my son and ordered dinner for myself and wife. We enjoyed it so much. We always enjoy eating here. I also love their watermelon juice.
