This is a great place from location to food, I can't say enough. My hubby and I frequent this spot whenever we desire well made fresh sushi rolls and a splash of Sake - I recommend the higher end bottle they have still VERY affordable. I love all of their rolls and have recently tried and fell in love with... More

This is was first visit to Wasabi and it certainly will not be my last! We arrived without reservations for a table of 3, quickly seated and warmly welcomed. The service was fast and the presentation was amazing. Homemade Ramen noodles definitely had a wonderful taste. I ordered the Spicy Wonton Ramen and it was hands down the best Ramen... More

Wasabi is casual dinning for everyone. And lunch, too. Price is very reasonable, but taste is very satisfied. I recommend every one. Especially Ramen is the best.

Got through on the phone on my second try to make a reservation for 8PM. We ordered their calamari, gyoza, and chicken karaage to start, and then I had the ebi (shrimp) ramen special. Everything was delicious, not too greasy, and served piping hot, except for the green tea. The ramen noodles and shrimp broth were excellent!

Came here with my friends and we each ordered a different flavour ramen alongside with some sushi rolls and cocktail drinks. Everything we ordered was spectacular in taste! The broth was very rich and the ramen was very chewy and delicious. The Saba nigiri we got was really good, the Saba was seared making it extra tasty. Cocktails were big... More

I decided to try the soup after reading the rave reviews. It was excellent! Rich broth, perfect noodles and tender beef. Also had gyoza that were the best I've ever eaten. All this and a really helpful friendly waiter. I'm going back.

The food at this little place is absolutely delicious. We had calamari, a crispy noodle salad, curry, gyoza, and sushi, and everything was fresh and very tasty. It unfortunately doesn't open till 5:30 as we are from out of town and wanted to eat at 4:00 but it was certainly worth the wait. Portions are appropriate to the price, the... More
