“Excellent japanese sushi restaurant”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

We have been in many sushi places and this one is the best. Great tasting sushi of all kind and relatively cheap prices. Although dont expect the waiters to speak english. Definetely recommend!

“Glimpse of real Japan”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Just back from a trip in Japan the last summer, I caught at Wakaba some real flavors and food styles like in the land of the rising sun. First of all, it's the first place in Italy where I found "onigiri" (got a couple of them with tuna and salmon). Then I got a variety of courses thanks to the 28€ all-you-can-eat menu, and I can say at Wakaba they have something different: it's not just a change of the ingredients, there's a true care for the processing, ending up in a real joy in tasting the different style of sushi. About the atmosphere, watch out: ain't no stylish and trendy furniture, nor dim light and posh accessories. It comes as good as it gets.

“worst ramen experience ever”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

First of all, everything is chinese here, chinese waitresses, chinese cooks, chinese music, chinese smell.
The place is dismal, cobwebs dropping from the ceiling, dirty toilet, cheap furniture.
Our waitress got our order holding a dirty handkerchief, and all staff was everything but friendly.
I ate a ramen (house specialty??), too spicy, with a stale egg and poor vegetables and meat.
I wonder how someone here can give four of five stars, no way!!!

“Very good place to get stuffed”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

I've been in this restaurant a couple of times with friends, both times with the all-you-can-eat formula. The restaurant is one of the not many "real" Japanese in Milan, with a wide range of plates and not just a sushi-sashimi place with chinese food added in the rest of the menu.

The prices aren't low, but the quality is high, and if you prepare for the all-you-can-eat you can get a very good quality/price ratio.

The price for the all-you-can-eat is 28 euros, beverages and dessert excluded, and you're allowed to order almost everything from the menu, provided you don't leave anything in your plate.

The food is great and well-presented, service is fast and kind, although the waiters' italian is sometimes far from perfect but if you know what you want it shouldn't be a problem at all.
