This place has a great lunch menu for around $10 both sushi and hot dishes. You get a salad, egg roll and choice of entree. Haven't had anything here that wasn't good. It won't blow your mind but if you are looking for good sushi and midrange prices then go for lunch. Unfortunately they discontinued the chocolate covered fortune cookies!
Wokcano is a happening Japanese Chinese fusion restaurant with culinary delights to satisfy appetites from sushi to dumplings. Their double kung pao and shrimp tempura is specially tasty. They are open very late so that is definitely a plus. There is also valet parking available.

DO NOT order from this restaurant! WAY overpriced and ridiculously small portions of sushi. We ordered delivery from here and an $8 dollar roll consisted of 6 teeny tiny little bites of sushi. They also charged a hidden ""packaging fee"" that we were not notified of. When my outrageous $50 order came I was shocked and thought they had forgotten half of all the rolls. I never, ever write bad reviews as I think it's just not a good thing to do. But I wish I would have known what a scam this restaurant was before hand. Thought you would like to be warned.

I dined at Wokcano for lunch with some friends recently, and although the decor was trendy and pleasant, the whole experience lacked any kind of ""spark"". It felt like a chain restaurant with 4-star restaurant prices. Some of the dishes we tried were pretty tasty - the shrimp and rice dishes were good. But the salmon was extremely disappointing. It was small and dry and flavorless and what could best be described as grey in color. It was accompanied by asparagus that had more flavor. The rolls were okay, but not worth the price. It really feels like you are paying more for the atmosphere and is if they are trying to justify the quality of the food by charging high prices. Wockano is definitely not the worst you can do, but it's not somewhere I would make an effort to return to. Also, for 4 people, for lunch - for 2 entrees, 2 rolls, and a rice dish, the bill was over $85!

I recently went to Wokano since well, downtown has precisley jack worth of places to eat. I walk in and am greeted by these pretty cute hosts. I was seated almost immediately and the place was slammed. I arrived with about 4 people. The waitresses in this place are REDICULOUS< meaning HOT!!! The blond chick that helped us out, amazing legs! . WOW!!! And as were looking around we notice some other hot waitresses as well. Our waitress was very helpful and nice. We tried every one of her recommendations and loved it! We ordered Black Pepper Mignon and a Double KP and also had some sushi and sashimi. Everything was timed well and we would of ordered more but we found ourselves stuffing it all down. It is amazing food and priced pretty well. One complaint to the managers though...... why the hell is your staff running around like maniacs?..... I suppose thats how it is, but I would love to have your hot waitresses sit down and enjoy a meal on us!!! Thanks for such an GORGEOUS day! Customer fo Lifeeeeeee!

Wokcano is a generally mediocre Japanese/Chinese restaurant that should be avoided unless there is nothing else open. The sushi in particular can be described as pathetic. It's over-priced and under-served. Believe you me, they know there's not much open after midnight. Enjoy your six-piece Red Dragon roll for $13.

I used to love ordering delivery from this place. They had an online form, and my order was correct every single time. However, I've ordered twice since the place reopened in its new location, and I am completely dissatisfied. Both times, items were messed up. This time, we called and let them know they completely forgot 3 of our items. They offered to give us a credit. As in, we can come later and they'll give us the food we already paid for. Seriously? I politely told the man that I would not be ordering from them again, so no thanks. My boyfriend called and asked to speak to a manager, which in itself was quite the task since the person on the phone said there was no manager or assistant manager available. He finally spoke to him, and the guy was not the least bit understanding. There's nothing worse than expecting a tasty meal for an hour and a half and then getting disappointed. Okay, there is, but it's still up there. If you want some Chinese delivery, there are cheaper places with comparable quality and better customer service- I suggest picking one of them.
