Pay attention to the board and the little table signs with the specials rather than the menu itself! It does take a while but totally worth it! The crab and mango salad as a starter is also great!

Absolutely gorgeous sushi, and very reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and service was really quick. It is a laid back, simple and cosy place. Strongly recommend it.

My wife and I just went to Wayo Sushi last night. This was a strictly mom and pop sushi bar/restaurant. The chef was probably the husband and the waitress was the wife. The restaurant/bar could seat a total of 21. However, the chef was one of slowest sushi chef that I have ever come across. Thus, the long lead time... More

Really delicious Sushi. Everything was perfect. The place is very small and the food is made specially for you, so once you order you have to wait around 40 minutes until it's prepared, but it's worthy. In the meantime you can have a soup and some drinks. Amazing food in a chill atmosphere.

Amazing food - we waited about 50 minutes for it but the food was amazing, beer was good. Could not complain. As someone who has high standards, this place is definitely worth a visit and also very reasonable priced.

We live just a couple of blocks from here. The first time we went to Wayo, it was packed and we were told it would be 45 minutes. We had seen other reviews on Yelp that mentioned this, so we were prepared. We had a beer and placed our order. Our sushi came and it was amazing. The most fresh... More

Very pleased to have found this lovely little sushi place. The Dynamite Rolls, and the Snow Leopard rolls with albacore were our favourite. We also had tuna rolls, shrimp tempura rolls, shrimp rolls and a nigiri toboki. We had green tea to go with that. The ambience was good - jazz in the background, The place was clean and service...

This is one of the best sushi places I have been to. It is incredibly cheap when compared to other Sushi joints, and the food served is really fresh. I like their Nigiri sushi a lot - really the freshest of ingredients seem to be used here.

found this gem of a place looking for good Japanese sushi one night. we weren't disappointed with the quality, freshness, service & cleanliness of the restaurant. if you don't mind the 15-30 minutes wait at times then you're in for a good meal, drinks & "we're eating in their kitchen feel" of the place. there's only authentic Japanese flavors when...

We received a recommendation from the Desk Agent at our hotel and it didn't disappoint. My husband chose some more traditional items on the menu being that he is a little more picky then me. I can say I was glad we left the kids at home.
