I love this place. Delicious food, lots of options, but also comes with a casual/cool feel that's rare on Nigeria.

Perfect spot for casual dining, plenty of choices, great atmospheres here. What really puts it over the top is the incredibly polite and attentive staff, the service was outstanding!

A pleasant wooden set-up with a nice choice of food on the menu. Staff is friendly. No Noisy music in the background as in some other places. Quite convenient with friends or for business

I absolutely love Wakkis! They never disappoint. I can't explain too much, it's a must try! It's also very affordable. I only wish the restaurant had ACs, it gets kind of hot.

Despite its African sounding name this is a restaurant that serves a lot of continental cuisine to the international community in abuja. The place is trendily designed and staff is courteous. Food is a bit pricey but good

Special decoration. We sat upstairs. Pleasant surroundings. Food was okay. Tandori chicken and sheeh kabab was nice. Lamb had to be cooked longer. Toilet facility is not optimum.

During a recent business trip to Abuja...our hosts kept ranting about the flavours of Wakkis... An interesting place, busy and good location. Service mediocre and that's being generous! Food standard, but the local residents love it! Compares poorly to the average suburban London Indian takeaway!...More

Very tasty and good ambience. I'll love to visit more often. The Indian cuisine has all the spices you can expect from an international restaurant.

The food is nice and they did a lot to adapt Indian food to African taste buds, still without loosing its originality. The ambiance is fresh and quite authentic like a traditional bush bar.
