My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Wai-Wai dining. In fact it exceeded our expectations. The Sashimi was beautifully fresh, and tasted Devine! We had crumbed oysters, clams in broth, Wagyu steak sticks and Kimchi,.
Everything beautifully presented! Must go again - next time try the Hot Pot which looks fabulous!!

This is possibly the next best thing from sliced bread !!! As a big family and all foody lovers we don't go out for dinner as much as we would like too, it just gets too pricey for us. Well we experienced our first first table booking last night and it is incredible, we ordered everything and allowed our kids to do the same, what a wonderful abundant feeling it gave us all. This will be our new go-to for amazing affordable yummy food and to be able to have a beautiful family get together.

This is my first time coming to Wai-wai to have a farewell dinner with our good friends. I love how the seats are arranged in a way that we got to have a bit of privacy but still enjoying the busy dinner atmosphere. The food was fantastic especially the spicy miso hotpot!

Atmosphere was amazing, very warm, cosy and intimate. Loved the novelty of ordering off the iPad and once ordered, the food arrived promptly, was fresh and cooked to perfection.

The wait staff were super friendly and accommodating and new the ins and outs of the First Table experience.

The choices of foods were endless and enough to variety to please even the fussy of eaters. Both my husband and I agreed that Wai-Wai is on the list to re-visit in the near future, only next time we will take some family with us to enjoy some authentic Japanese dining together.

This was my second time at Wai Wai and it was just as great as the first time (if not better because we got a booth seat!) The two ladies we dealt with were lovely and cheerful, and processing the First Table booking was super easy, we just showed the email.
The food there is high quality and you order on an iPad which is always fun (and saves you from mispronouncing the order!) The Angus beef skewers are just about the best steak I've ever had! And the sashimi was fresh, and the texture great!

The only way I could improve it would be to add sushi to the menu (they have sashimi and other things usually seen on menus with sushi) but the food they have is great!

We had an excellent experience. Atmosphere was great, service was great to. We were welcomed by the staff with a big friendly Japanese Hello.

We ordered a Curry, some goyza, miso soup, a fish dish and meet on sticks. Ordering the food through the Ipad was fun and the came out promtly. We felt we could order just a little at a time until we were satisfied.

Definitely be heading back to WaiWai Dining next time I am in Southport.

What an excellent little Japanese restaurant! We enjoyed our own Wei Wei izakaya-style feast of starters as well as their combination sashimi plate of really fresh seafood. Ordering through the tablet let us see the size of dishes and what each dish would look like. Food arrived promptly and table service was charming. The mochi ice cream is so moreish. Don't miss it! We'd love to return and enjoy shabu shabu or a hotpot cooked at the table. Definitely a winner!

It was amazing dining experience. We choose there to celebrate our 1st anniversary. We ordered Sukiyaki beef shoulder hot pot and extra beef belly, Karaage chicken, Katasu and Tempura. I know too much food for 2 people, but we ate it and really enjoyed . There are so much Japanese people eat there, Ithink that means the foods are not just yummy but also very Japanese. I will go there again, I want to try the hotpot buffet and mochi ice cream.
