Don’t waste your time and money here. The food is horrible, full of gluten and mostly taste like pre packaged rubbish. The drinks were of the same poor quality. My espresso martini had an indescribable unpleasant taste, and thinking I’d be safe with trying a glass of wine instead was a mistake. The wine was also not drinkable and burnt the back of my throat. I could only attribute this to poor quality ingredients which then completely overpriced. Although the location is great right on the foreshore, the Wah Bah decor reminded me of a cheap nightclub you once found yourself at 3am in the morning when there was nowhere else to go. Safe to say I will not be going back there and I will be warming my family and friends not to waste their money there.

Thank you for dining with us and supporting local. We are thrilled to have so many regular customers and so fortunate to be booking out so far in advance in these uncertain times, but we do understand we can't be for everyone and it really sounds like we really aren't a fit for you. We hope overall you enjoyed your time with the company at your table and the service from our friendly team. Stay safe through COVID, we wish you all the best, Kind regards Wah Wah Gee team

Not sure there’s need for a dj to be that loudly on a Wednesday night.
Service was impeccable. Forget the name of the young lady that served us, but as soon as a drink was empty she’d clear it from the table, always with a smile and asking how everything was.
Food was brilliant again as usual (although a bit less sauce on the bao than usual) but all in all, a great night out.
Wednesday bao night is the best night of the week!!

Oh, but a wanky beer selection on tap.
Would it kill you to have a regular Carlton draught/dry/VB on tap?!

Went to Wah Bah for the Wednesday Bao Bun deal and unfortunately the best part of the night was the Schooner of cider my partner got. 6 Bao Buns and fries took close to an hour to come out and once they came out we’re cold and had no flavour.
Disappointed and won’t be going back anytime doona.

Thanks for joining us for our $3 Bao night!We agree, the James Squire cider is great!Wah Bah Wednesdays are such a fun night, we are getting busier every week &our kitchen team are producing an incredible amount of buns in a short time.We have now introduced our board games to add more fun at the table while the food is being made.If you do dine with us again please let the team know if something on the menu isn't to your liking and we will always do our best to accommodate individual preference

Great atmosphere, yummy food - $3 Bao buns on Wednesday bargain! Wait staff was lovely. Only thing not perfect was bar staff missed 1 bun in the order when it came and would only get us the extra one if we paid $3. Think if it’s their error they could wear the $3

Yes, food is so delicious, drinks are delicious, energy inside the restaurant is amazing. It is a very aesthetic place to eat. The waiter we had was the nicest guy ever, he offered to explain the menu to us, how wah wah is going to improve and made sure we were all enjoying ourselves. the $3 bao buns on a Wednesday night is such a good idea too.

Appreciative of your vegan options but perhaps another vegan option for the buns would be nice - for example, maybe tofu?

Hey Holly, duly noted! we have done a tofu option in the past and we alternate our options each season, so you never know - it may make another appearance! Thanks for your feedback : )

The service on the night was very poor , we had to engage with staff 3 times to have our food delivered. We all ordered at the same time but it trickled out over a 90min period. Orders that went in after ours were being filled.
The music was way to loud for dinner time and conversation was difficult and limited. It was late December when people were celebrating Christmas but the bar was not staffed adequately and the drink wait was excessive.
This was very disappointing as I had recommended this place to my friends after an enjoyable time only weeks earlier.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review your experience at Wah Bah.

After booking a table for 10 a week in advance, when we arrived the tables were separated and another group were sitting on one of the tables we booked. We were able to squish on one. I was really hoping that the crispy chicken bao buns that are served downstairs at Wah Wah gee would be on the menu, unfortunately they’re not. Was glad to be able to bring the mason jar cocktails from downstairs up stairs because they are a must. Overall it was an okay experience, hopefully as it because more established it will run smoother.
