Whenever I want food fast, don't want to spend a ton of cash, or don't know what else to get, Wai is always the best bet. You're barely hanging up the phone and they're at your door and they're always really nice. Food quality isn't top notch or anything, but their dishes are tasty, reasonable, and there's a lot to choose from. And there's just something about that carrot dressing....

We just had dinner there tonight. The menu sounds awesome but it is far below that. My cajun shirmp was such a small portion that I had to get more food afterwards to be full. My boyfreind's crepe's were not good. The chicken tasted like chinese food chicken aka low grade and dry dark meat, the spinach was undercooked and bitter, and the cheese tasted strange. I guess when you mix french food with asian cuisine you get a bad combiation for dinner.

I ordered the cobb salad today. I was glad it only cost me $4.50 and the delivery man was prompt with a capital P. My girlfriend ordered egg white and chicken burger and was pleased. The cobb salad was not good. It had really dry bits of chicken that were hardly cut up. They didn't mix anything together and it was not enjoyable. Why? I may try this again but I will be sure not to make the same mistake twice.

I honestly can't see a reason for not becoming a regular at this place. My boyfriend (a very picky eater) and I (a mildy picky eater) went to this restaurant for dinner mostly on a whim. The name stands out and the question mark is intriguing. Service was excellent and the menu had a great selection. Their teas are seriously amazing. I am a tea fanatic and I was very impressed. Our server was friendly, but respectful. Not overly attentive or familiar, but we never had to wait for anything and he answered all of our questions and made brilliant suggestions. We started off with Steamed Vegetarian Dumplings, (6 @ 3.95!) and they were very delicious and well presented. For our entrees my boyfriend had Tortellini Alla Salmon and I had a crepe with mushroom, onion, spinach, zucchini, and tomato. The pasta (which I naturally stole a few bites of) was excellent and not too fishy. My boyfriend was in heaven eating it. The crepes were light, the vegetables crisp (I hate overdone veggies) and the sauce on them was delicious. The home fries could have been better, but they certainly weren't bad. We sat in the garden in back, it isn't much of a garden but it is open and nice. We didn't have the same problem of the other reviewer who said it was noisy and you couldn't hear your own voice. In fact, we had quite a nice time talking and listening to various evening bugs. All in all I definitely rate this as a great find and will definitely be returning to try all of the various dishes that caught my eye.

Just had a great Cobb salad for lunch and it was only $ 4.00! I got a gazpacho to go and that was only $ 2.95. Wai Cafe has consistantly good, healthy food that is unbelievably reasonable.

Wai is my favorite spot - and most of my friends' favorite as well. Quick delivery, yummy healthy food - nothing to complain about, in fact, everything to rave about! Don't forget to ask about their specials, as they are often some of the best things on the menu - not to dismiss their amazing regular menu. The chicken Caesar and cobb salads are scrumptious. The hummus, guacamole, cajun shrimp, crabcakes, all are recommended. My boyfriend's favorites include the linguine marinara, baked chicken fingers, and the meiji soba. Highly recommended!

I always find myself ordering from here when I'm not sure what I'm hungry for, but want something somewhat healthy. Their salads are amazing, love the carrot dressing, the garlic bread is good and the pastas are good. Everything seems to be really fresh. The graphic design on the delivery menu ain't so great, but who cares.
