We fell in love with Wakame years ago! We always go during happy hour, but that part sucks because it's late at night and BUSY. SO BUSY. However the wait is worth it. I always order the Crazy Monkey roll. My favorite. No place within 100 miles beat this sushi joint. Cannot speak highly enough.

We order many dishes and have them come out family style for everyone to share. The Szechuan greens beans are delicious. Sushi never disappoints and comes out quickly. This restaurant... More

Visited with my wife for lunch. We ordered off the lunch menu. My wife had a Caterpillar Roll and I had the Two Roll Combo, a Tuna Roll and a California Roll. The food was fresh and tasty and delivered very timely. Presentation was pretty ordinary. Our server, a young lady, was very friendly contributing to an overall positive experience.... More

I love Wakame. I come here about once a week for the Hot Spicy Girl roll either alone or with my family ... so we consider ourselves locals! Just so good! Every. time. Great value lunches and always happy hour before 6pm. Patio is nice in summer too.

Happy hour prices make this a steal. Crazy monkey roll and the eel sauce made this place a new go to for us. Love this place!
