My Chinese food was average or slightly below average; it wasn't delicious, but it was hot and all right. Lunch was reasonably priced. My entree with rice and egg roll was less than $9. What I hated was that the waitress and another staff member never shut up, and their loud conversation was full of obscene words. The loud talk,... More

Do not eat or order from here! I ordered a dish for delivery and when I received it, it was rancid. I called about this and they said they would immediately send me another dish and that I was to give the rancid one to the driver. 40 minutes later, the driver came and gave me the new dish and...

I've been to Wai Wai three times, and I have been more than satisfied with their food each time. The prices are very good, and you get more than enough food - I always have enough to take home to make a whole other meal. The crab rangoons are amazing! Definitely my favorite thing to get at the restaurant. The... More

Sweet n Sour chicken was a bit over cooked (coating was perfect, though). Could offer a few more gluten-free options, especially the Young Chow fried rice, by using rice soy sauce. A bit pricy for the quality/taste.

A great Chinese restaurant where the food is excellent, fresh, consistently made, priced realistically and plentiful. There had been some period of wait staff issues but they seem to be over. The servers are friendly and attentive. An excellent meal at a fair price.

Excellent food at very reasonable prices. Attentive and friendly wait staff, fast service with a smile. The presentation of the food was far above average, a visual delight surpassed only by the superb taste. For those reasons alone a 5 stars rating is warranted. The simple, efficient atmosphere is inviting and comfortable. Convenient access on a busy downtown street. Looking... More

Chinese food has become almost uniform with so many places around these days. So many of them taste the same. Wai Wai does not. The sauces in the common dishes like General Tso's and the Garlic sauce are thicker and tastier. The dishes seem to have a little something extra including flavor. The dumplings are really good and the Singapore... More

The dinner box is a great deal... I enjoy the vegetarian meal... it comes with a egg roll. This place is very clean, however the rice is never " fresh" and its "mushy"... the rice could be a tad better...But I love their red hot sauce ( saracha) it makes the meal ..

I live in the are so I frequented this restaurant quite a few times over the past year. I went in for lunch recently and it was a bit early...about 11:15, so it was just before lunch and they had just opened. I was blown away that they had put out the food from the night before to start the... More
