Just the best all-you-can-eat experience you can get. The fare is higher than the standard (€28), but there is nothing that makes Wakaba to fall short from a Japanese a la carte. Superb!

All You Can Eat with a lot of different kind of Japanese food, including RAMEN! Very good! I've spent more than 30€, but it worth it, as they have very good plates. Uramaki are very bigs, with lots of rice.

We have been in many sushi places and this one is the best. Great tasting sushi of all kind and relatively cheap prices. Although dont expect the waiters to speak english. Definetely recommend!

Just back from a trip in Japan the last summer, I caught at Wakaba some real flavors and food styles like in the land of the rising sun. First of all, it's the first place in Italy where I found "onigiri" (got a couple of them with tuna and salmon). Then I got a variety of courses thanks to the... More

First of all, everything is chinese here, chinese waitresses, chinese cooks, chinese music, chinese smell. The place is dismal, cobwebs dropping from the ceiling, dirty toilet, cheap furniture. Our waitress got our order holding a dirty handkerchief, and all staff was everything but friendly. I ate a ramen (house specialty??), too spicy, with a stale egg and poor vegetables and... More

I've been in this restaurant a couple of times with friends, both times with the all-you-can-eat formula. The restaurant is one of the not many "real" Japanese in Milan, with a wide range of plates and not just a sushi-sashimi place with chinese food added in the rest of the menu. The prices aren't low, but the quality is high,... More

One of my favourites in Milan. Although the service might be quite unfriendly at times, the food is great, good variety and the plate is cute. It is quite expensive for "all you can eat", but cheaper than a la carte sushi restaurants (the all you can eat menu costs 28 euros excluding drinks). Book in advance!
