PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
The name Waqu was created by the owner of this intimate Japanese restaurant located along the quiet end of Falcon Street. Waqu is the result of combining the Japanese word "wa" meaning "in harmony" and the word "qu" which translates to "atmosphere". Put it together and you've got a relaxed and harmonious space in which to enjoy this unique fusion of modern Japanese cuisine. As owner Jumpei Nishikido explains: "Japanese food is not all about sushi and sashimi. At Waqu we serve modern Japanese food which is a very current reflection of how cuisine has evolved in Japan to result in a fusion of the best of East and West".
