It's been a while since I have been to this restaurant, so I was looking forward to eating here. We checked both the upstairs and ground floor buffet and everything looked fresh, hot and tasty. We loaded up our plates and sat down to very good food; a mixture of Japanese rolls, salad, Chinese dishes of chicken, vegetables, Thai noodles, rice, french fries and fried foods. Everything was good and it was replaced frequently. Good thing, as the restaurant was very full for lunch and at times it was annoying to wait in line, but then it was also easy to go downstairs and check out the second buffet. I like sitting there better, as it's not as dark or noisy as upstairs.

We enjoyed our lunch there and I was amazed at the good service. I splashed soy sauce on my white pants and blouse then promptly made it worse by using the red napkins to try to clean up my pants, turning them red! One of the waiters brought me while towels and stain remover! Now that's considerate service!

For desert I tried the rice gelato and the green tea gelato; very different and good along with fresh fruit of oranges, watermelon and diced fruit. They have added a few tables outside, under umbrellas which is a nice touch. Overall a great meal for 10 eu. I think Woklong Sushi Bar is here to stay and I'm happy to eat there again for lunch.

Woklong Sushi Bar is an all you can eat Japanese buffet which has been at its current location for about one year. Expectations were pretty low, especially because it’s located at Porto Antico, right in the heart (if Genova really has one!) of the tourist area and the price seemed too good to be true. I was very pleasantly surprised! For 10EU (drinks are extra) during the day and 20EU at night (freshly prepared wok food) you can feast on 5-7 different types or very typical, rolls (California, cucumber, veggie, nothing high end or exotic) hot Thai noodles, veggies, meat, chicken/pork w/veggies, fried wontons, a seafood mix, French fries???, spinach and other Chinese/Japanese food. What impressed me was that it all looked so fresh and was frequently changed out. The veggies weren’t soggy or drenched in butter. The rolls weren’t all rice and all the sides you want…wasabi, ginger are provided. The dinning area is on two floors and is attractive (although a little dark on the second floor), cleaned and bussed regularly. I’ve eaten here just once but have been back to look at the buffet food a few other times and it looked freshly prepared, except late afternoon. You may fill you plate as often as you like but they request that you take only what you will eat to avoid waste. Also included in the price is desert! They offer a self serve gelato/ice cream station with a choice of 5-7 different flavors. Take them all, if you are prepared to eat them all, plus some kind of fruit, like melons. Overall, I was impressed and will definitely eat here again. If you are in the port area, look for Via San Lorenzo, the main street going up hill to San Lorenzo Church. The restaurant is on the left just before starting up Via San Lorenzo. Hope you enjoy it!
