Great food!

Dined on April 24, 2016

We were there on a Saturday afternoon and it was not crowded. Took us right in. Nice ambiance. We had sushi which was well made, flavorful and great portion size. Service was good though it was not busy. We will be back.

PF Changs is better

Dined on March 20, 2016

Service was slower than average. Granted, our server had a very large party in his section, but a manager was assisting him and the restaurant was not otherwise super-busy. The food was fine, but not spectacular. PF Changs does the atmosphere, food, and service 10x better.

My reservation was specifically for Valentine's Day, and Wakanos did not disappoint. They were very timely, they actually read my reservation so they knew what I asked for down to the smallest detail. And as always the food was excellent. I would definately recommend it to a friend.

Dined on December 26, 2015

The restaurant was freezing. We complained. Never felt warm during my dining experience on Christmas day. $10 for a drink which was half ice- a very expensive icee! We were seated in the lounge-the seats were very uncomfortable. Their web-site states fixed price menu. However, the Long Beach restaurant was not offering that special. Switch and Bait tactics? I liked my food, but cannot recommend the restaurant.

Dined on November 21, 2015

Horrible service form the hostess. Granted we made a reservation, but arrived 15 mins early. Instead of seating us at one of the many open tables, she said we had to wait unless we sat in the lounge. What rely ticked us off was about 5 minutes later she sat another party of 4 who had no reservations, and then told the other hostess that we had to wait our reservation was not until 1030. It was only when we asked for a manager did a table suddenly open up. Good food but soured the experience and while I'm not one to ask for compensation something should have been done to turn make a mends for it.

I don't like Sushi but love Wokcano

vip
Dined on July 30, 2015

The chicken teriyaki is a generous portion of broccoli and two breasts perfectly grilled. I get around the sushi =) The salad and any soup is great-tasting. My friends crave the Crazy Rolls; Philadelphia Rolls; The Long Beach House Roll - quite a presentation; and during their daily Happy Hours - the savings are big and the flavors are too. Try the Spicy Crabmeat Tempura Roll.

Great sushi!!!!! Absolutely loved this place! The sushi was great, the staff was great, the prices were not too bad at all and I actually really loved the dark and dreamy ambiance of the restaurant. We were just visiting the area and really wanted sushi, I'm glad we picked this place instead of the other sushi place about a block away, there is nothing I could complain about. Fun specialty drinks and a nice bar. My favorite roll was the "Crunchy Roll"

Unsure about this Long Beach site

Dined on June 21, 2015

I made a reservation for my family of 4 with older kids. They were not busy when we arrived yet they sat us at the very first booth right by the front door. The server didn't come to our table very often to even check on us. The hostess only came by at the end of our meal to ask if we wanted refills. The service wasn't great but the food was good. I've been to the one in downtown and the service was much better.

Phenomenal Service

Dined on May 10, 2015

Server was phenomenal, she kept serving even after paying. The mgr visited at least 3x to see how things were and made sure all were satisfactory. Food was great esp hot sour soup. Did not feel rushed out of the restaurant eventhough lots are waiting for available table to be seated. Its a place to take a special person to celebrate special occasions.

Dined on March 9, 2015

Went to celebrate my mother's birthday. Waiter acted like he did not want to be at work. Noodles I ordered were very dry. Waiter said he would have to charge for extra sauce. That is horrible customer service. I had the manager remove the item from my check. My daughter and mother enjoyed their food.

Loved the saki

vip
Dined on March 8, 2015

I was looking for a sushi restaurant and although we had good sushi, the menu is more varied. There are chinese dishes and indochinese dishes as well as sushi and some asian fusion options. The best part was the sushi and the drinks. The flight of saki prompted an order of more. The Chinese dishes were a little too heavy so we took home some items.

My wife was very upset that she didn't have something better for Valentine's day. She found the seating very uncomfortable. She wanted a both. Boths were open and remained open through the night. She didn't like the food or the service. I tried to convincer her that the music was good. Fortunately, I redemed myself at the Bar at Delious later.

Valentine group dinner

Dined on February 15, 2015

First, We made a 7:30 reservation but we were not seated until 8:00! 2nd: we were seated in which usually is the bar area, but since it was Valentine's Day they made the entire section into a dining area. It would've been fine expect our table was a low lounge table with a long bench on one side and foot stools ( used as chairs) with no back on the other side! The men in our party are all over 6 feet! The host claimed " most people like it because it's in front of the waterfall!!" Umm , NO! When I make a reservation I expect to be seating either in a booth or regular sized table that accommodates everyone in my party! We ended up sitting outside in the patio area just so we wouldn't have to wait another 30 mins to an hour to eat! Next time I guess I need to be more specific about my expectations!

Only negative comment is that our service was slow although you could see servers standing around. It was not due to holiday or amount of people in restaurant.

Our waiter was awesome he didn't check on us too much and he didn't forget about us either. I thought he would because my boyfriend and I were placed in the back. He had our drink filled before even needing to ask. The food was awesome and I would totally eat there again. Great food and awesome service. We will be back.

Don't miss the Fried avocado stuffed with ahi tuna and crab- DELICIOUS! Service was good but they kept forgetting to take away our dishes so they piled on our table. We had to ask twice to get them removed so we could have some space- kind of annoying. Sushi was fresh and delicious. Also very much enjoyed the shrimp and candied walnut entree! Will definitely go again for the two aforementioned dishes...

Great Menu Selection

Dined on July 6, 2014

The food was great - I had the spicy crabmeat tempura roll and it was so delicious! My friends had some of the Chinese dishes - these are HUGE portions, large enough for two people to share; three if you're not too hungry. Our server wasn't as attentive but overall, the food and atmosphere and the company of my party made up for it. Great location in Long Beach - next door to cool whiskey bar The Stave!

Friday was my nephew's birthday and needed a last minute reservation for a big group. Our original reservation was for 20 people that ended up being 34 people. I called the manager (Adi) and he was so nice and did everything to accommodate make us feel welcome. We had a great time! I will definitely schedule more celebrations at Wokcano - Long Beach. Now my sister who lives in Pasadena is saying they will check out the Pasadena location as well since they liked the food so much. We have a large family that like to go out to eat, drink and have a good time. Thank you Adi and crew for adding another restaurant for us dine in.
