Amazing sushi as usual. We are rewarded with flavors so artfully presented. Walters has an extensive menu. From the burgers to the tempura and sushi, Walters has it all. They now have Thai food. We keep coming back, so it must be good. North State st, Ukiah.

Walters Cafe was a great place for dinner. Their menu has everything. We ordered Thai, American and Italian from their menu. All dishes were served hot and delicious. Worth stopping at.

Busy place, and with good reason. I think we went on a Saturday night and no wait, but the place was packed. I had the salmon, my wife steak, and both were very good, and prices were reasonable for what you got. Only complaint was wine was not listed on the menu and was a little more than I thought...

We ate American selections in a Japanese cuisine restaurant. One of the selections we ordered was pasta which was excellent while the other was a crab salad which was only marginal. The crab was possibly from a can or at least was not fresh. A large open dining room with plenty of privacy for conversations. Not being a Japanese cuisine... More

I was never a big fan of sushi until I tried eating it at Walters. They always have fresh ingredients and you can watch your sushi being made. They have a great menus if you are not into sushi. I have never been disappointed with any food I have eaten there. It has a nice clean atmosphere and friendly staff... More
