    The Main Place location offer an all your can eat Sushi buffet value priced at $16 for lunch and $22 for dinner. I'm partial to Ono, so I had my fill of that and tried various other sushi options. My wife has a similar passion for Octopus and Mackerel so she was happy. In fact, Wokano is now her favorite sushi buffet place. I also ordered the Wok prepared teriyaki chicken and it was excellent. Drinks are on the high side at $12 a pop. Free parking is close to the restaurant and seating is comfortable. There are at least 5 TV screens if your inclined to watch sports and a large bar. We were there for lunch on Friday and it wasn't too busy and noise level was low so you can have a quiet conversation with you meal partners. We already decided to return and try more of the menu items.

    We ordered the all you can eat special (unbelievable value). The food was great and the service was exceptional. I believe our server’s name was Zach. Instead of saying “I don’t know” when we asked about types of Whiskey, he went to the bar and wrote down everyone for us.

    Came over for Father's day celebration ,we were seated right away even though we arrived half an hour early. Over all ,the food was delicious! The ratio of the rice in their sushi is just right (bite size).My personal favorite is the Ono sushi with a pea size topping of garlic mayo, Yumm! Service was fast and our server Shane was attentive. Checked on us several times to see if everything was good. I would definitely dine her again in the future.

    There all you can eat special is awesome and an outstanding value. However, this last time we (party of 6) ate their for dinner on a Tuesday night the service was horrible. We waited over 25 minutes for our drinks and food. I have no ideal why it took so long because the restaurant wasn't busy. In the past there services was very good, but this past Tuesday it was lacking. The food is delicious and the price is even better so I will be back.

    This was my second time going to Wokano. My first experience was amazing, so I was really excited to go back for my Birthday lunch. This time around was ok, but a little disappointing. We had to share an ordering sheet (which we didn't have to do on my first visit). This really slowed down the process of ordering our food, and some of us were on a lunch break. I can certainly appreciate saving paper but I think the ordering process worked best when each person had an ordering sheet. We also were ignored a couple times when trying to get someone's attention to ask questions about the menu. In the end, our waitress was great and the food was outstanding, so I will come again.

    The food was decent BUT the service was horrendous. It took us, a party of two, two hours to get two rolls and a bunch of appetizers before we gave up since we were way past our lunch hour. The servers weren't the issue but rather the kitchen staff. They were so behind on orders that they even put in a 10 minute hold for orders. The management was obviously overwhelmed and they were not ready for the volume of customers from the OC restaurant week. Yet, they continued to seat people. It was ridiculous!

    This place rocks! There is a great variety of fresh and delicious food to choose from on the buffet menu. It is well worth the $10 special buffet price. You will leave happy and full and you will come again! This is my second time here for the “OC Restaurant Week” lunch. I recommend you try Wokcano if you haven’t done so. Here are some of my favorite dishes: 1. Salmon and Avocado Salad Mixed & Topped with Salmon Sashimi & Avocado 2. Seaweed Salad Marinated Served with Hint of Ponzu & Sesame Oil 3. Baked Green Mussel with House Spicy Sauce 4. Deep Fried Calamari Served with Spicy Sauce 5. Tiger Roll Shrimp Tempura, Crab, Topped with Salmon 6. Red Rock Roll Spicy Tuna, Cucumber, Topped with Seared Tuna 7. Spicy Crispy Chicken Fried Chicken with Spicy Sauce

    It was first time visit for me. Very interesting fun place. Foods were good. Unlimited mimosa is good deal. (Our server looked busy ...though...) However, when I made the reservation though OpenTable, I checked “Anniversary “, and when I went to the restaurant, I also mentioned about our anniversary to the host but didn’t listen, or just ignored it... that was so sad.... And “Temaki” wasn’t look “Temaki”

    It was our first time...the hostess was friendly but looked overwhelmed. Once we got seated our server came up and introduced herself but didn't ask if it was our first or if we were there before. She took our drinks and didn't offer the drink specials at all. I asked for a mimosa almost at the end of my meal that was included with my buffet or stay discount price. We might return!

    We went to this place the first day they started their “all you can eat” and it was horrible...... decided to give it another shot and I’m glad we did!!! Fish is fresh and creative, service was fast and friendly, and I felt like it was a good value as far as sushi goes. I’ll definitely be back soon!!!

    False advertising!!! Super disappointed on the managers service. Everything else was amazing. Advertising prices weren’t off and did not make sense. Their marketing department needs to do a better job at making ads right. Manager also needs training on service he provides to customers.

    The food was good - I ordered the spicy garlic shrimp. I give service one star because, for some reasons, I was passed over on drink refills 3 times; all my table mates got their drinks refilled 3 times before I got mine refilled and that was after I requested for a refill. My glass was 1/8 full throughout that time. Even though I loved the atmosphere, food and music, I would not recommend this particular restaurant to my friends if they look for all the above plus good and friendly customer service. Customer service is one of the elements that make my meal and meal time sweet or sour. It was sour at this restaurant that day.

    We were here for a business lunch and we all enjoyed the food we ordered. The services was excellent and we didn't have to ask for anything because our server was on top of things. I really enjoyed the lunch sushi special ( 1 spicy tuna and 1 shrimp roll). It was quick and filing. My business associates had the Honey Walnut Shrimp, Crispy Orange chicken and the Mongolian beef which they all enjoyed. We would definitely come here again.

    Food was pretty darn good! Service was SLOW...like glacial. 20 minutes to get a cocktail and an hour to get our entrees/sushi ordered. The server, in a restaurant in Southern California, didn't seem to understand that one of our diners has Celiac and needs to ensure that EVERYTHING she eats is GF. The term "extra mint" as it refers to the amount of garnish on their cocktail is not comprehended by the bar tender.

    They have several TV's for viewing from any seat in the place which makes it good for sporting events, etc. However, seemed odd for this place. The sushi we had was OK for the price.

    I enjoy the food, but the service at this location is inconsistent. When we arrived, the person at the desk was on the phone and didnt even make eye contact or scknowledge us. Fortunately another server saw us and seated us quickly. Our server was personable, but his area must have been too big because the manager ended up taking care of us and we rately saw him. Overall, a good dining experience.

    Great new spot in orange. Nice vibe, clean, spacious. Food was very tasty, didn't feel greasy. They have tvs for a sports bar feel but not too many to be too loud, so also good for a quiet date night. I'd definitely go back. We went for restaurant week, but looking at the regular menu, the Prices aren't unreasonable.
