I have given Wai Cafe three chances to show me something. I have gone during my lunch hour and have ordered different dishes each time as Wai Cafe was recommended by a close buddy of mine.The service is wonderful and the restaurant itself is relaxing and inviting but the food is bland. It's such a shame because the food on the menu is presented in such a way that one would believe that the meals should be incredibly tasty. The ingredients within the dishes just sound delightful. They should consider replacing thier chef because it seems that is the only thing missing to having it become a great place overall.

I often take wai cafe for granted. its been there for quite a while, the decor is unremarkable (tho they do have nice big windows that look out on first av) and the food is, well, reliable. its somewhat simple, but definitely tasty, and covers a broad range. some asian, some pasta, good salads too. always ask what the specials are before your order. brunch is quality and not usually crowded. garden in back in summer. fast delivery... my sesame chicken special is en route right now. gotta love wai cafe.

Wai Cafe is amazing. It is so addictive, and that can only be a good thing since their food is very healthy and amazingly easy on the wallet. Not to be a prissy East Village anorexic touting salads and pretending to like them, but their cobb salad is bangin'! First of all, this is a real serious salad filled with awesome things that hit the spot (and are full of heart-healthy Omega-3 fats! get some color in your skin you junkies!) like avocado, hard boiled eggs, gorgonzola cheese and their delicious house rosemary chicken. And least I forget their fabulous, magical, beautiful carrot-ginger dressing. They have rockin' lunch specials eery day until 5:00, none of which will run you over $6. Most are $5. Plus they have a backyard patio that is pint-sized but really the cutest thing in the world and very nice to retreat to for some privacy. This place is like another cheap-n-healthy favorite, Dojo, but a lot less dingy and more cute. But not too cute, so those of you who are too edgy to function shouldn't worry.

I order from here at least 2x a week, and I am addicted to the carrot ginger dressing. I usually get the crepe or the crabcakes, and have rarely been disappointed. I could eat their salad every day. Great value, and fast delivery. Sometimes there's a language barrier, but I suppose that's a small price to pay for good eats.

I order from Wai often and I always have to get their shrimp bisque. It is so delicious. I have order delivery for many of their items and although not outstanding they usually hit the spot.

I order from here almost every day (no joke). My boyfriend and I are such big fans of this place - make sure to try their sole francaise if they have it as a special that week. Also notable are the Wai Chicken, baked chicken fingers, crepes, and crabcakes. I'm getting hungry writing this!

Deliveryboy comes with NO change - you will pay 20 dollars for a meal that is 10-15 dollars, if you don't happen to have singles. Talk about a built in tip! When you call to complain, manager speaks no English.
