Delicious chicken and sides. Too much food piled on the plate. Get a to-go box

We live in Woodbridge now, and whenever we are back in Herndon we visit Waku. The chicken is always so fresh. We've eaten there perhaps 30-40 times and I don't think we've ever had a non-moist chicken. The portion size is huge. And the staff is super friendly.

Delicious Peruvian style rotisserie chicken and a large assortment of sides. Fried yuca is amazing、 the Greek side salad is tasty and the giant sweetcorn is strange but awesome. Really good family combo specials and you get a lot of food for a very reasonable price.

I wasn't going to give them a 5 start...but i did, because the manager took care of me immediately, she found out that I had ordered a drink that they thought they had...as found out they didn't. But she acted and decided to take care of me l, I was very impressed by it. I do recommend this place the charcoal chicken is very good.

This is our favorite Peruvian chicken spot in the area. The prices are good chicken is flavorful. Best thing is the yellow dipping sauce it's delicious.

The food wasn't the issue. The food was delicious the problem was that there was cockroach and when I let one of the workers know he seemed to not care. It was like if it wasn't a big deal. So that alone was a big red flag.

The good: fresh food. Meat cooked completely. The bad: it's only ok. Bland. Not much of a taste. I had a quarter chicken white meat with fries and chaufa rice. I normally love Chaufa rice. This iteration had very little taste and tasted less fresh than the fries and chicken. I drive all over the Tri state area fixing computers , so I try tons of places. That makes me pickier since i have a lot to compare against. The king of chicken and fries is Pollo Rico in north arlington. Every last bite of that chicken is delicious and flavorful. The fries are thicker fries and to die for. This was not that. Fries are pretty tasteless . Fresh. Hot. But tasteless. To,give you an idea good fries,too,me are from Five Guys, Pollo Rocco, Roy's if using the thicker fries , McDonald's (king of thin fries). This was not as good as any of those. The chicken was on,y lightly seasoned and after eating the skin had very little flavor. I will not go back, though I will say the place is clean, friendly, and food is fresh for the most part.

One of my favorite Peruvian chicken in the area. What I like about Waku Chicken is 1) Sides are superb (Fried Rice and Yucca are great) 2) Fresh Chicken 3) Plenty of space inside One thing is chicken on the smaller side

Wow! That’s all I can say. Googled Peruvian restaurant near me (since I was in VA shopping for furniture) it google showed me this restaurant. Amazing food, amazing service. Chef Archie came out and personally greeted me, since I asked the waitress to call him. I would most certainly come back and will recommend.

Chicken is delicious! Fell right off the bone. Skin is crispy and well seasoned. Salad is fresh, fries are crispy and yucca is perfect. Staff is friendly and prompt. Definitely would eat here again.

Found this place on a random pick and I'm lucky i went in here. Great food and was greeted with friendly smiles from the staff. Chicken is freshly chopped in front of us. I'm on travel but I will definitely be back soon.

Looooved this place! The food was so good and tasty. You get a lot for your buck too! The chicken was nice and tasty. The potatoes were cut up in cubes and spiced heavy but good, the rice was chicken fried rice...which is what my kids had for lunch. Small gem in Herndon that I would recommend paying a visit!

Was in the mood for some good Peruvian chicken so I decided to give Waku a try. The chicken is decent. Nicely seasoned. Comes with two sides, I had mixed vegetables and Chaufa rice. This rice is delicious, well seasoned and very tasty. The mixed veggies came straight out of a bag. You get a nice meal for $9. I'll try it again if I'm in the area.

After a busy day when I'm too exhausted to cook, this place is my go to for a hearty meal. The best in comfort food. I love their selection of Peruvian food - as well as the chicken which is always juicy, well seasoned and delicious. Their Pan Con Chicharron (pork) sandwich is my absolute favorite and there are a multitude of delicious sides that can be added. The salads are a great option - always fresh and vibrant Greek and Gyro salads are lovely. I have also tried the Pescado frito and was so surprised that every dish could be so consistently delicious. You get so much food for such a good price! Another thing that matters a lot to me is that staff is friendly and the restroom is always very clean.
