Why are you eating sushi anywhere else?

We have traveled monthly to Baton Rouge for the last 3 years to see family. Why are we always debating, "Where are we going to eat?" Lunch will always be Waka House. It is a perfect small dining area to relax. There is SO MUCH variety on the sushi menu. The staff is wonderful and so helpful... read more

We have passed this place a lot and never thought of stopping. I read a few reviews and we decided to give it a try. We were greeted by a very nice young lady. The service was very good. The menu has some really interesting items. The sushi was excellent. The price was good. This is a hidden gem.

How much do we love this place!?!?! We stumbled upon this gem years ago and is the only place to go when we have a hunger for sushi. We love the Hayden roll, the mango roll and anything else they make. It's pricey but very much worth it. We normally do take out b/c the restaurant isn't large at all.... More

Very intimate restaurant and lovely decor. Wait staff used to be awesome and with great personality, but they've had some turnover and this is the only place they could improve here. Sushi is ALWAYS good. Not only is the presentation fantastic, the food just could not get better. Favorites are the Katsumoto, the Hayden, the Waka Crunchy, snow crab naruto,... More

My family and friends have eaten here numerous times. They have many specialty rolls, or you can get Nigiri sushi or sashimi. Every thing is fresh and thry have great sauces on some of the rolls. Service is excellent and the staff will make suggestions if asked. I return again and again.

We were hungry for some sushi and so we looked online and found Waka House. We walked in to the cutest little sushi restaurant. The staff was really helpful in explaining different menu items and making suggestions and were always attentive. We ordered a few rolls, gyoza and a shrimp appetizer. All were delicious. We will definitely be back!

After trying this sushi place and atleast 30 others, it is safe to say that this is, hands down, the best sushi I have ever tasted. No matter what you order, you are sure to have the freshest, most delish tasting sushi served up. Even better, it is a very intimate non-crowded atmosphere, and the prices are very reasonable compared... More

FORGET fancy, big names in sushi. All you want to consume is right here at WAKA HOUSE. Start the meal with the sake sampler. Very interesting to compare 4 or 5 different sake. Make it a real treat by having your companion mix them up so you a really doing a blind taste test! Yes, the pricier one is just... More

I frequent this place because it is close to my office. The sushi is really good quality. It's very intimate and great for a date. When I get takeout, it is always fresh, and always good. It's much better than the other sushi restaurant in the same shopping center.

This place was one of my favorites for a while. Located right next to the Neighborhood Wal-Mart, so conveniently located near LSU campus. It's not "cheap" sushi, and I always leave paying around $18 for my meal. Usually order the Hayden roll (which is pretty delicious) and a salad or edamame to go along with it. Great presentation, but the... More
