“Great six course modern Japanese for reasonable price”
Reviewed December 11, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Waqu offers a great fine dining experience of Japanese cuisine at a reasonable price. The dishes are all uniquely modern with a nice blend of natural flavours. The wagyu is worth the premium and the course of fish is especially well made and the presentation is impeccable. Highly recommended for a nice evening.

“Think Japanese 'fine' dining”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We had a very enjoyable lunch for 4 people choosing the 5 course menu. Among our group, not all fancied sashimi but this was not a problem for staff, or the kitchen, which provided most acceptable alternative dishes. Tables are well spaced in a reasonably large restaurant area, many with attractive window settings. Main course in the set menu was a choice of 2 steak dishes, barrumundi and salmon. The wagyu beef was rated the best restaurant meat dish in a while and the crispy skin barramundi was perfect. Mains were good portion sizes. All courses are beautifully presented, as you would expect, and descriptions provided when served by knowledgeable staff. Moderate wine, sake and cocktail selection available.Overall a very pleasant experience.
