I would say not all food I found was god but surely they have nice Indian food , of course you need to tell them on the level of spice ,otherwise it could be very spicy . I found it bit noisy if you are coming with family and also quiet dark , which I think is normal in Abuja.

At Wakis you are bound to see and dine alongside top politicians, diplomats, expatriates as well as well-heeled locals. What better place then to eat good foreign and local foods and probably make that good business contact?

I also can't visit Wakkis without ordering the samosas and garlic garlic naan. Everything we have ordered here is always flavorful and seasoned well. An added bonus is the... More

The menu is mostly Indian...I wouldn't want to write what I'm unsure of. I was looking for a good place to buy Indian food and Wakkis was my choice! Also had a get together there...their service is fast!

I'd be honest, my last visit wasn't in February 2016 it must have been sometime in 2011, yeah but I felt the need to share my experience in what really is one of the oldest Indian restaurants in the city. In at least that long it's kept the doors open and continues to cater to the most discerning palates. Perhaps... More
