My 2 friends and I bought the Groupon deal for the sushi making class, and it was so much fun! We went to the 6:30PM class on a Monday and it wasn't packed at all.

My daughter and I atttended a sushi making session last Saturday in the Wabora Restaurant. It was fun and informative. There are many steps in the proces to learn. The best part is of course you get to eat what you make. The classes fill up fast so you need to book this months ahead.

In Toronto, our party of 4 middle aged professional men were greeted soon after our arrival by Min Soo's younger, but equally fantastic brother, Daniel. Daniel passed on family greeting's (Min Soo is out... More

I made a reservation at Wabora for 3 friends and myself. Turned out one of my friends is not big on sushi so we asked our waiter if the kitchen staff would mind putting chicken on a sushi pizza instead of salmon or tuna. He went back to ask, and said they wouldn't mind at all, but that there would... More

I had seen reviews for this place before and the comments were negative about the service. We ate here one night because it was in the hotel where we stayed. The food was great, but the service was terrible. Our waiter was indifferent as was the other staff.

After a disgusting and incorrect 4pm meal experience at the rooftop lounge at Thompson hotel (courtesy of the late night diner) took the wife to wabora attached to the hotel and had potentially some of the best and tastiest sushi we could remember. Worth every penny

I loved everything on the menu and i thought the food was fantastic, however the food is expensive. you pay a lot for what you get for. Nonetheless, I was extremely satisfied and I enjoyed it! good find!
