We and bought chicken for lunch, bad taste! No where close to what I was expecting. I order plantain, rice and beans. Also taste bad.

Purchased a Groupon and decided to visit Waku Chicken. Wife and I decided to try the two fish items on menu...salmon and tilapia. No one was at the register, no one was in the dining area, the mixed vegetables on the steam table were out and we were told it may be up to three hours before their shipment arrived.... More

The food was really good and my five year old loves the chicken. The only complaint was I thought it was priced a little high.

The place was bright and clean, BUT the staff did NOT know the menu and after a couple of back and forth exchanges with the server on the line, my wife and I ordered. Turns out that they didn't have either of the dishes we ordered, but al least in the case of what my wife ordered they told her,... More

I love this place and I hope is lasts. The chicken is always good...and they are never cheap with the sauce, a feature that separates them from their competitors. I've been away from waldorf for a while, and this is one place I miss the most.

A co-workers raved waku was the best in the area. I'm not exactly sure I would agree. I must say my husband chicken was fresh but lacked flavor and the rice was very cold and bland. After trying some of his food, I decided it wasn't worth ordering my own plate. Maybe the time of day caused the lack luster... More

I had to go pick up a prescription while at work, a coworker requested that I stop by Waku chicken to get a large yuca and a large plantain for us to share. I went and got them, and the total came out to $12.39. I thought that was pretty expensive for 2 sides but I paid and brought him... More

Chicken is not the only thing on the menu. One of my favorite items featured on the menu are the Lamb Chops. They are especially good when cooked and prepared by Grace.

These places are springing up all over and while most are OK, the Waku seems to stand out - Food is always fresh (though sometimes the quality of the sides is a little off - mainly overcooked or sitting on the hot table for too long, I think). We mainly get the chicken, though I have had a gyro from... More

This place was busy and the food was pretty good, but the tables and floors were very dirty and the condiment stand was in shambles. It was fine for our stop over on our way home from Baltimore, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.
