We went here for dinner. The waitress warned us about a potential wait of 30 minutes because there was only one chef. The food was well worth a little waiting! Everything was tasty and freshly made! Would definitely return!

A small restaurant with a few tables and space at the bar. We read the reviews in advance and were expecting a long wait, but were pleasantly surprised. Good and fresh, indeed not the tidiest ever but reasonably priced and delicious. Good quality wasabi.

My wife and I just went to Wayo Sushi last night. This was a strictly mom and pop sushi bar/restaurant. The chef was probably the husband and the waitress was the wife. The restaurant/bar could seat a total of 21. However, the chef was one...More

Amazing food - we waited about 50 minutes for it but the food was amazing, beer was good. Could not complain. As someone who has high standards, this place is definitely worth a visit and also very reasonable priced.
