This is a great lovely restaurant - I particularly like it because it offers some vegan options which are clearly marked on the menu. The waiter who served us was so friendly and we had a great chat with him.

Absolutely bowled over by Wa cafe in Galway. Myself and my wife were really amazed by the sashimi, which included all locally caught fish, the highlights being an incredibly sweet scallop and the freshest mackerel imaginable. Really interesting to see mackerel on a sashimi plate! The rolls were equally delicious, my favourite being the mackerel roll and atlantic spicy tuna.... More

The nigiri we had as a starter was sublime. The ramen was great and the teriyaki beef was the best we have ever tasted. We will be back.

arrogant server, cold noodles, poor sushi, lack of toilet paper in the WC and general disappointment after good previous experiences (different staff). We will not go back to this place.
