I frequented this restaurant when I live nearby and had not been to it in a while. I was very disappointed in the food. First I had to send it back because it was far too spicy and then overall the dish was not good. It was almost like a non-Chinese person cooked the food. I would not recommend this restaurant which is a shame

Surprisingly not busy for a Saturday night. Very convenient location, we had dinner before watching a comedy show at the Laugh Factory. The staff was attentive, the ambiance was very relaxed and the food was fantastic.

Good service and great location but the food was pretty disappointing. The orange chicken should have been called orange chicken skin. I’m not sure there was any meat in it, just chicken skin that was impossible to bite through and like chewing leather. Blech. Too bad as it is convenient to my workplace.

Food was fine. I hope our server doesn’t rely on this job as her only source of income because she was worse than awful.
We asked for several things that either never showed up or were not done correctly.
Had to ask again and remind her we wanted more ginger and wasabi.
Had to ask for a fork to go with our leftover food. Never got it.
Asked to have parking validated. She supposedly did, but ticket machine said otherwise and I had to pay for the parking.
Again, the food was fine.

Restaurant was mostly empty on a Saturday night. Even though it was not busy we literally never heard from our waitress again after ordering the app and drinks. Another person who was clearing the table took our order about 15 minutes after all the apps and drinks where gone. Our dinner lasted two hours and we had one beer. The food is ok, but way overpriced considering bad service, no music, and pretty generic mall ambiance. Definitely one of the worst overall values and nights out we've had in a long time.

Walked across the street after comedy show at 10pm for happy hour drinks and late night snack. Happy hour only for drinks that night. Restaurant is small and was not busy. good service, food brought out quickly and everything was delicious. We ordered walnut shrimp, 3 sushi rolls, and fried rice. We stayed drinking until closing 12pm.

A very nice place to eat with a varied menu covering several Asian foods. Everything we had was excellent. Waiter was good. Drinks were good. Prices were reasonable.
The only difficult thing was trying to figure out the parking garage which is confusing until you have circled around it a few times. Unfortunately we were there longer than the validation covered and the lack of labeling on the ticket exit machine leaves you wondering how to pay the balance. I include that only because it is part of the restaurant experience.
I would come back again if I was in the area.

It’s a nice place, but food was salty and oily. Still fun and quick place to go before catching a movie upstairs.

The food was delicious but the waitress was horrible. She was to busy running her mouth with the other waitress. She forgot drink and food that were ordered. Had to ask a busboy to get her for us to ask about our food and drinks that were missing.

Wokcano had been recommended to me a while back, and now I see why. Everything about the evening was great. Made Valentine's Day a success for me. I can't wait to go back.

It’s was a last minute choice near our hotel and was a bit disappointing. Food was unremarkable. I want to commend the bus person who made sure our drink order was prepared and delivered to us. That was the one bright spot.

Restaurant inside is dated and looking dirty, there is a weird table near the bar with a odd collection of electronics on it, looks like a hordes collection of out of date gadgets - very strange, hostess took us to our table with zero silverware, no napkins, no nothing, Waiter took drink orders and for some reason a green ice tea took 15 mins to bring over, food arrived and still no silverware, after waiting several mins he finally bought it over after being asked, had to ask again for a napkin - A Napkin, a single Napkin for 3 grown adults, food was bland, Tuna tasted fishy, rice in the room was mushy, the waiter wanted to be there as much as we did by the way he was acting, ive been to several of other Wokcano's before and they have been good, this place was empty and i know why, on top of all to this Parking at location is horrid, $15 for parking!!

Wokcano is always a great place. Food is top notch in a city with many options. Hats off to the chefs and the team that puts it all together. Really some of the best food the city has to offer. Can’t stress it enough. I do wish the special occasion was recognized a bit more by the staff but overall experience was still kind courteous and delicious.

WOKCANO is solid choice for sushi. Not the best high-end sushi around, but always good quality.

They took off all the real sushi ..they used to have great uni and more healthy options but it's super deep fried and saucy now. Still tastes good in a fast food type of way and I love the servers but don't go here if you want authentic sushi.

Service was really disappointing. We waited a long time. When our server finally came to the table he told us we hadn't been assigned to anyone. It was obvious they were trying to turn our table over quickly. Drinks weren't delivered and we're never refilled. We weren't offered dessert. Seriously disappointing.

Chewy! Had a grliied fish it was served warm I guess they were busy. Honestly it was not value for money and I will not go there again.

Large portions, so two entrees (especially with a side dish) are enough for three. We had the Mongolian Beef, Lemon Chicken and a side of Happy Hour Brussels Sprouts. We even had left-overs to take home! Service was friendly and fast. The music was just right so you can talk while you have dinner.

Overall the experience was great. Location is great and there is an outdoor option but during the LA heatwave we chose to sit inside in the AC. Our server gets a 5 because he was able to have the kitchen prepare an item that was not on their updated menu for us. For the price the the food options were not that unique or better tasting than other Asian Fusion restaurants I've dined at in LA.
