Wokcano in Pasadena

My grandchildren picked this place to meet for lunch. Anyone been there and have any suggestions on what to order? They are not chowhounds at all so I don't know what I am in for.

    Didn't know they opened up in Pasadena. Tourist food at its worst. The meal I had at the 3rd St. location was the single worse Chinese meal I've had in 10 years. I do have to say that the meal I had at the downtown location was edible, though.

      Late, but...

      I like Wokcano for it's rolls. Nothing really fantastic, but good and reasonably high quality for the price.

      I've never eaten anything but the rolls and sushi, so can't comment on the Chinese (wouldn't expect it to be good, and can't imagine anyone would).

        Funny this thread resurfaced. My 23 year old daughter and her boy friend like the place for the rolls, but mainly because they serve food until the wee hours of the morning! She likes good sushi too, I spoiled her. So her palate is a bit more refined for sushi than your average person.

          The late night hours are a big plus.

          I'm only talking about the Pasadena location, never been to any of the others... are they all about the same quality level?
