I am frequent customer of this restaurant as my office is just 1 min walk to there. They have changed a new waiter at lunch time and his service is terrible. We have been wait for 20 mins, and he has no intention to serve us as we arrived at 1.15 pm and they are closed at 2 pm. What we need is a table clean up, so that we can sit down and start reading the menu. Is it a unreasonable request from us? Waiter told us that we have to wait for at least 20 mins before he can clean up the table, and indeed we are the only group (3 people) waiting.....

Worst service ever, it suck. Will never go back again.

Wa's is a small spot with limited parking. It's location is a little off the track and easily unnoticed, kitty-corner from Safeway on Centre Street, North, just North of 16th Avenue, NW. But, do not pass this place by. I recommend a reservation because the place is small and often full.

The place is not fancy but clean, in good repair and pleasant.

They offer excellent, high quality sushi. Their menu consists of some traditional sushi that may be a bit adventurous for the North American palate and many other choices to suite everyone. They also offer some noodle dishes. The chefs are from Japan and trained there and have been at Wa's for many years. The food never disappoints.

The service is good and the sushi chefs friendly if you sit at the bar.. Prices are reasonable.

This place is a real find. You will want to go over and over again. I'm almost reluctant to post this review because I don't really want to make it harder to get in!

We went last night to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We hadn't been before so took the reviews on here as a suggestion to check it out. Unfortunately it wasn't as good as everyone said. Maybe they were having an off night but the sushi was only ok. Some peoples food came out long before others and so we were all eating at different times. Considering the place was empty we were surprised by the wait. The server was nice and tried her best to understand us despite the language barrier, she was very patient with us when we had to get her to repeat herself a few times! The decor needs to be updated; the room we sat in was really run down with dirty chairs. The prices were average; my boyfriend and I paid $60 including tip and tax for 5 rolls (mix) and ice cream for the b-day girl and one large Asahi beer to share. We will probably stick to our favourites downtown but it was nice to try something different.

Consistently good sushi. Reasonably-priced. Good service. Wa's is great. I think the best sushi in Calgary.
