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!

The 2nd thing I noticed was the ambient music was too loud to my liking. It wasn't subtle. And it took forever for a... More
