    We got here on a relatively quiet night before all the hustle and bustle. Our waitress, Lisa was exceptionally attentive. The food arrived quickly and our waters were always refilled promptly. I had two small kids and three teenagers so we had the gamut in age range and tastes. As side note, for parents with small kids, this location has very clean bathrooms and a baby changing table. In terms of food, it's not authentic Chinese food, but still very good similar to PF Changs with much better service.

  • Very, very Loud
    Irwin
    Dined on 5/18/2014
    It was too loud in the dining room to have a real conversation, as we were shouting to hear each other. That made it even more difficult to flag down the waiter who appeared to do his best to stay out of sight. As for the food, the portions were smaller than at the Santa Monica or downtown location, roast duck was no longer on the menu and the dessert tray presented was just one note of flan-shaped cakes. Disappointing, but expensive, dinner out.

    I went there first time , on a Mother's Day everything went well. The only disappointment I had was , on the website It was mentioned that they will have some give aways for moms but never got it, server and front desk never mentioned it . But the rest was good so it's fine. I'll Go back there anytime.

    Dined on 4/25/2014
    Wokcano used to be a favorite lunch spot because of their excellent bento box-style specials with assorted choices. They've changed their menu but failed to improve it, so now what's on offer is extremely mediocre at best. Uninteresting selection and somewhat odd food preparation. Service was good but that doesn't enhance the dining experience since the food was not appetizing in the least.

    I have been to other Wokcanos and loved them. This one was not up to par, mainly because of the poor service. The Lemon Chicken I ordered was too spicy, although it didn't state peppers on the menu, and I had to send it back. I wasn't able to do that in a timely way to eat with the rest of my family, because the waiter never came back to check if we were happy with our food and was nowhere to be be seen until nearly the end of the meal. He finally did replace the chicken with vegetarian rice, which was delicious.

    We had a birthday party for a friend. She loves Wokcanos but I hadn't been there before. I felt is was very peaceful and loved the decor and ambience. I was also encouraged to know that they had given us the back/more private room......major plus points. I thought the prices were pretty decent and the selection was great. Our favorite dishes of the night were: Spicy Tuna Rolls, Shrimp tempura rolls, Curry Chicken (it wasnt spicy though) and the green beans....yummy! Our server was efficient and respectful of or time there. Our food came fast and we had a great time. We are not drinkers but when we were done..the bar area was packed for the game....cool!

    Part of a chain in the LA area, Wokcano is a variant of the PF Changs business model, coupling Americanised Asian cuisine with elegant surroundings and service. Food is very good, though, with tasty versions of sushi, Chinese and curry. Location in downtown Burbank provides an opportunity for a stroll before or after.

    We had a party of three. The first person got their sushi and entree before the other two were served their food. Our server was NO WHERE to be found. We waited over 20 min ON OUR LUNCH break to be served our food. When the waiter arrived, he mumbled something about the kitchen messing up the "order" of our entrees.

    I hosted a farewell party at this restaurant. I mistakenly placed a reservation for the wrong amount of people I was inviting and within a twenty-five second phone call the restaurant had altered my reservation to suit me, this alone was a promising start. Furthermore, as a tardy host, I arrived earlier than I had scheduled my reservation and the staff at the maître d' had already prepared the table for me well in advance. In addition to this they even gave me a private area for the party, without my request. The food was delicious, the waitress was polite and friendly with a great knowledge of the menu and an ever greater help when suggesting items from the menu. Gotta love Wokcano.

    Have been here many times and always order sushi rolls. I came on my birthday. I don't know if they reduce the portions on the Baked Lobster Rolls but for $15, that was really small. I usually get twice the size and this time I got 6 mini bits sized rolls. I miss the Triangle Roll with mint that used to be on the menu. I'd have to say I spent a lot of money and wasn't satisfied with what I paid for. I don't think I'll come back for sushi specialties anymore, but maybe for regular dinners.

The food was amazing! Late Night Party Roll in the late afternoon - simply awesome! The staff brought a delicious chocolate cheesecake topped with a carmel sauce - Exquisite! They sang their unique peppy version of Happy Birthday and helped to make it a dinner to remember!

    I love this restaurant! I love the food, wine, service, ambiance, location and your prices. The only thing that bothered me some was the temperature during this late summer visit. The month has certainly been hot but we don't need to get carried away with the AC indoors. Plus, it had cooled down quite a bit that night and was pretty nice outside. I don't get cold easily but it was too chilly in your restaurant on Friday, August 10th.

    I had a student years ago(hello Aldo) who was one of the early employees of Wokcano and he urged me to try it. it only took me 8 year to take him up on the offer and am I sorry. What a great find!. We started with the Lettuce cups and the chicken dumplings-both great. For entrees we had the Pad Thai and the Honey Walnut Shrimp-delicious. The waiter, Kiko, was doting and made the evening go off without a hitch. The nice thing is that after dinner, one has San Fernando Blvd to walk off the meal .It was a great evening.
