OC Weekly's Description

This isn't just a safe fallback for industrial-park drones who forgot their sack lunch; even in a city where great Japanese restaurants are as prevalent as Minutemen council members, Wafu stands out as the dive that's perhaps the best bargain. Eaters pack its tiny sushi bar and seven or so tables during lunch and dinner, gorging on both sushi (of the nigiri and roll kind) and cooked meals. And if you don't like fish, no worries: Stick with the curry or the ginger pork.
