I have eaten here several times. The food is good especially if you like Indian flavor. The interior is made of woods, burnt bricks, thatched roof etc which gave the place a natural look and make you feel close to nature. The food are cooked right inside the seating area which makes you feel like a participant in the cooking.... More

Great high ceilings but lack of fans/no aircon made it a bit too sticky after a while. Note for other foreigners re payment: Before we sat, asked it I could pay... More

Meh, I'm not sure what all the hype is about. I found the quality of food here to be just average. The paneer wasn't fresh and tasted like pre-packaged, frozen paneer.

Great food, good service, nice decor and I think it will become my must-go-to for my Abuja visits. Veggie samosas, garlic naan, tandoor chicken are very tasty, looking forward to try more things on the menu.

Wakkis is the place to go for awesome food, lovely ambiance and nice staff too! It's also good value for money too. Informal setting so you can let your hair down and have good conversation while waiting for your meal. Their lamb curry is to die for!
