I have just had a delightful meal in Wakaba. Ok. It might not be the most sophisticated by Japanese standards but the fish quality could not be faltered. The staff were very friendly and communicative even though I spoke little Italian and they little English. I would really recommend this if you want a Japanese experience.

Best sushi AYCE in Milan so far...but the wasabi was absolutely tasteless. And for a sushi lover, this is a big problem, fix it and it'll be a great place.

Fine sushi but certainly not the best in town. Service was friendly but very slow, I mean SLOW, even though the evening was relatively quiet (a Tuesday). I had probably set my expectations too high because of the great reviews I had read, so I was kind of disappointed in the end and am not sure I would recommend it.... More

The answer - thank god - is yes. This clean and well kept place is not too big. There is a room in front with maybe 5 tables and on back with another 5-6 tables where is also the kook. Judging from the outside one would not anticipate the surpising inside. The staff is friendly and the owner - a... More

The sushi here is amazing, and of very good quality as far as I could tell. The €28 all you can eat menu was recently replaced by a €25 and a €38 menu. We chose the €25 menu and could choose from an extensive range of sushi, sashimi and other Japanese dishes. The service was good, however nobody spoke English,... More

This restaurant is conveniently locate between Duomo and Linate, and you can eat Japanese food at a budget price. I advise see-food salad, sashimi, katsudon. Good atmosphere, service too quick when you finish eating.

Just the best all-you-can-eat experience you can get. The fare is higher than the standard (€28), but there is nothing that makes Wakaba to fall short from a Japanese a la carte. Superb!

All You Can Eat with a lot of different kind of Japanese food, including RAMEN! Very good! I've spent more than 30€, but it worth it, as they have very good plates. Uramaki are very bigs, with lots of rice.
