OMG! We were here on Mother's Day evening. I had almond crusted salmon. I have ordered salmon in just about every restaurant in Omaha. This is the best I've ever had!! My husband ordered the Orange Chicken. Also very good. You must try this restaurant !!!

We have been going to this comfortable relatively small dining spot for 10 or more years. The menu is what many call Asian Fusion but do not confuse it with typical Asian or Oriental food. The menu is somewhat limited but everything we have tried has been very good. Our favorite is the pecan crusted salmonwhich, in our opinion, is... More

Food is excellent! Atmosphere is so cool and makes the dining experience special. James was working and he is so nice and good to talk to. His expertise adds to the experience. Can't wait to go back.

Always terrific food, reasonably priced, polite and attentive service, not overly pretentious. You will be surprised when you find this gem as you drive into the Home Depot parking lot!

We drove to Northwest Omaha to try Wave. Food, Service and Beverages were top notch. Ordered the specials - Curry Beef Ribs and Seafood Combination. Both were under 20.00 and excellent tasting. We will be back ! Wish we had a place like this close to us - Just in case Wave want to expand.

Fantastic dinner for two with the best fish dishes we have had in Omaha in a long time. My sea bass was cooked perfect and you could tell it was very fresh. The crab cakes we chunks of seasoned crab meat with a delicious sauce. Service was excellent and I wanted to compliment the entire staff on attentive service. They... More

This place has it figured out! With a low occupancy rating of about 75 guests they have created an intimate dining setting in a strip shop setting. When they say it's Asian fusion food, this is truly perfectly described and lives up to it. It's not the traditional "Chinese" food you get in a typical square take out box, and... More

Upscale Asian dishes served with soup or salad and fried or steam rice but not at an upscale price. In fact the prices are very reasonable. Try their Asian rolls for an appetizer and the dual mushroom chicken entree. Actually all their entrees are delicious. Desserts are great too. And a bar is available. Take out is available too.

If you're looking for extremely fresh Japanese cuisine...Wave Bristol on 144th & Maple is the place! Everything thing there is fresh from the salad to the main course. The egg rolls are loaded with meat and vegetables. I could make a meal off the egg rolls alone! The owner and the entire staff are VERY attentive and super nice!
