“Was here for meals every alternate day”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Good food. being a vegetarian(Vegan) i had very less options of restaurants to be at during my few months stay in Abuja in 2011. i was switching between wakkis restaurant and spice restaurant every alternate days. as there were no much options available. very helpful and friendly cook and staff. he could cater for my dietary requirements as requested. the price was also reasonable. Another nice place to have meals at in Abuja.

“5 days in a row!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

My friends and I ate at Wakkis 5 days straight during a recent trip to Abuja. The food was excellent. The food was freshly prepared over an open charcoal pit that was visible to everyone. The chicken was perfectly seasoned and cooked every time. The vegetarian dishes were excellent. The bread(s) were all hot and fresh. Security is present outside and the inside is clean. No one in my group had any complaints of illness from the food, Average price is about $20 per person, but worth every penny.

Definitely the BEST restaurant I had in Abuja.

“Excellent Indian dining in Abuja”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Good food, ambience, reasonably priced ( compared to Nigeria ). Good place to take out guests and business associates. Centrally located. Sometimes, it is full and hence you should be prepared to wait a bit.

“Abuja's Best Restaurant serving Vegetarian as well”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Well wakkis has some amazing food and this too in Abuja where one is hard pressed to find anything better than Suya or Shawarma as the eating out culture is non-existent. But be prepared that you are not going to find genuine Indian food but rather Africanised Indian food which is still very nice. Also this is one of the few places in Abuja where you can find food for the vegetarian.

“As reviewed @ tripadvisor”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

It was more or less as the reviews trough tripadvisor.. It is good, spicy, clean, fair prices, good environment, nice staff.. Nothing to complain except it was not in India with an Indian atmosphere... Worth going there for one night dinner if you are in Abuja.
