Authentic Indian food. Great flavours and range. Accommodating staff. Although the flourescent and dim lighting is a bit irritating.

Wakkis is a restaurant I return over and over again. It has a simple honesty, with basic furniture and a polite and friendly enough service. Where it excels is great food (Indian-lite) at excellent prices. Ideal for family outings or an office/business dinner after work.
