Way overpriced and mediocre at best and this was a day I was severely craving Sushi. Never again. The host was totally frazzled even though the restaurant was only half full. The waitress did a good job for us though, but did not seem very happy. Strange environment, needs an overhaul.

Went for lunch with the girls - Add to pay extra for crab in hot and sour soup! When questioned where crab was - got a snotty response from waitress that it was in there. Got food and it was cold, after waitress told us they were just plating our food. Food had no flavor or spice - funny for... More

I visited the Wah-Hoo recently while taking in some Tiger games. When I was there the place was almost empty probably because of the early dinner hour (around 05.00pm). I asked the waiter how many sushi rolls were sufficient for the average person. He suggested 2 or 3 so I ordered 3. I also ordered the hot and sour soup... More

My girlfriend and I ate here while staying at the new crowne plaza next door. The food was great, but slightly overpriced. The inside was clean and well designed and the air conditioning was blasting which felt great on that hot weekend

I wanted some Asian themed food for dinner this week. I found this restaurant 3 blocks walk from my hotel. I had the Ginger Salad, Shrimp Fried Rice (medium spice), and the Komodo Dragon Roll. I wanted something spicy and wanted to enjoy some Saki as well. This restaurant delivered perfectly on both expectations.

I've tried to go to this place a few times because I heard mixed reviews. In my opinion, as long as the sushi is fresh- it has to be pretty good. BUT then we forget to consider customer service. OH BOY! Bring your patients into this low end store front. The staff(that i have seen) is either really young and... More

The food has improved since the restaurant opened a few years ago. I've only recently began to enjoy eating suishi and Wah-Hoo has some of the freshest ingredients encountered. The almond chicken dish and egg drop soup are great choices as well.

This restaurant came highly recommended to us. I do agree that the food was good, not great but good. I would not run back. My disappointment with this restaurant is that we were a large party and asked for assistance in ordering from the waitress. We ordered way too much food. I think that the waitress should have told us... More
