Wakkis is a good restaurant providing good Indian food and some local specialities. The service is also nice but what sets the restaurant apart is its great set up and atmosphere. Nice food in a nice set up - what else do you want?

Good food. Wide range to suit most palates (from bland to spicy). The staff are attentive, service is prompt and efficient. Interesting decor too.

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.
