Business lunch in Abuja - food was very good I had Murgh Tikka Massala - excellent. Service for the main dishes was good but brought the wrong dish for the third. It happens. Quickly fixed. Very quiet as during Ramadan. Would revisit in the evening socially

We recently went out with colleagues at work to Wakkis. I made the recommendation because I had been there a couple of times. It didn't turn out differently than I expected as the food was delicious as usual.

The buffalo chicken wings, lamb ribs, biryani rice and d nan bread drizzled with butter r my favourite to eat. Nice restaurant. My only problem is the ventilation especially upstairs. The heat and smoke could get a little bit uncomfortable.

This is my first time visiting Abuja though have been to Lagos couple of times before for long durations & can assert with confidence that this place is a PARADISE for Indian food lovers like me. Was pleasantly surprised to see local Nigerians preparing & serving such amazing, mouth watering & finger licking Indian food. Absolutely taken away by it.... More

Once my favorite, today's is loosing its past glory. Very average when it comes to food and service. Sweated a lot, as there were no air conditioners or proper ventilation inside. Surely it's not the first choice for me in abuja. Saving grace are their barbecue dishes.

Well here is a difficult review, I am trying to review the supposed best Indian restaurant in Abuja, does this place actually deserve the title ? As you drive in to Wakkis in Wuse 2 on a weekend it's pretty standard not to get a parking slot in front of the restaurant, and to make matters worse the security guard... More

I find myself returning to Wakkis often since my first visit there when they were located at Wuse Zone 4. Now the restaurant has moved to a quiet and how brow area. Extremely tasty choice of exotic meals prepared right before you. In spite of this the hotel surrounding is cool and the ambience classy. Very good value for money.... More

Good, tasty food, nice ambiance and friendly staff! A great hang out and dinner place for my office team. One of the oldest restaurants in Abuja but it has maintained its high quality and good service! I will recommend it to others.
