India food

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.

We sat upstairs (a mistake due to grill smoke) and had beef samosas to start...more like beef-bombs but they were tasty, stuffed with meat and came with sauces (tamarind and a chilli mouth-burner).

I had the best indian food hear, and I know this because i have been unable to find a restaurant of equal standing in terms of taste. Be it in Australia with a large Indian community running Indian restaurants or my indian friends cooking, I have been unimpressed.
