“Not what you'd expect from the name”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

With a name like wakkis, I thought I was going for some Nigerian cuisine, but what I got instead was really good indian food and I loved the rustic decor. I was really hungry when we set out and was pleased to see that it wasn't too far from the Transcorp Hilton, and the food was also served reasonably quickly.

“Excellent!!!!”

Every time I visit Abuja, I make sure that I dine at Wakkis. If not, my Nigerian friends will take me there. I was introduced to this Indian restaurant by some of my Nigerian friends and I really loved the ambiance and the food there. The interior reminds me of some old houses in Kerala.

The liocation of the restuarant is execellent. The ambience is very good wherein people can sit, chat and enjoy food and drink at a reasonable price.

Indians would like good indian food at this joint.
