I have seen Wokcano for years and finally stopped to eat. The food is very good and reasonable. The items are limited but plentiful and delicious. The lunch menu is the best value. The salad that they serve is great, kinda like the old Bahooka's but better. The onion pancake is pretty tasty to start off with followed by the... More

This is one of a chain of restaurants. I visited the Pasadena location on several occasions. I love sushi and I eat it a lot. The sushi here is consistently good, fresh, and of a higher quality. I've sat at the Sushi bar (which I prefer) and at a table. Service is spotty. I was just there for lunch May... More

It was midnight and I was starving and these guys are open until 2AM. I had fried rice with crab and shrimp. It was delicious so I'm sure it was full of coconut oil and MSG (just kidding, but it was puzzlingly delish). Great service. Only complaint was that it was a little messy - like a bus terminal that... More

We went on a weeknight, it was fairly quiet but there was a nice atmosphere and our server made us feel welcome. The food is really good- portions are big and everything is well presented. We took some food home for a lovely breakfast the next day. Prices are very good for the quality. Decent wine list, clean restaurant, well... More

I travel a lot and every time I go to Pasadena I have to eat at least once at Wakano. The place is nothing to look at but OMG the food is fantastic! Fresh ingredients, fresh cooked, decent sized portions, the seafood, beef chicken is all super fresh and so tasty. Cant wait to go back in two week. I'm... More

Wokcano has consistently great food. We continue to choose this restaurant as they will deliver. We have had home delivery several times and the food always arrives hot, quick and with a very courteous delivery guy. I have ordered many items from the restaurant for delivery and never been disappointed. If you go to the Wokcano website you can order... More

Really fast friendly service. Food was on the greasy side, yet tasty. Came for a late dinner option and it was nice that they had late hours.

Was walking around Pasadena looking for somewhere for dinner. Saw this place and noticed it had Zagat reviewed stickers in the door. I usually avoid Places with a Tiki decor but thought I could go for it. Big mistake. This place was bad. My first clue was that there weren't many people there. Service was vet mediocre, not bad but... More

Nothing special about this menu, but if you want your dishes to be familiar and have no surprises, then you might enjoy dinner here. Unfortunately, the hostesses seemed more interested in texting and gossiping than with managing the front of the house (which I witnessed first-hand).

Been here on several occasions and it NEVER disappoints! Came to dinner with my BFF-in-law on Saturday. We wanted something light and that didn't take a long time! Who doesn't love sushi? Even if you don't they have other items on the venue. We ordered the California Roll, Rainbow Roll, and a Tiger Roll. ALL were delicious. We started off... More
