Indeed the best sushi-sashimi place in Basel (and there are many...) It`s only take-away and home delivery (evening) though.

I love going to Wasabi! They cook delicious and authentic japanese cuisine (NOT just sushi, although their sushi is great) and sell it at a very reasonable price. The staff is always friendly and the place is very clean and hygienic. I've been going there weekly for several months and have never got anything but great food and service. My... More

Being a sushi fan, I was totally craving for good sushi when I was in Basel. Having tried two three Japanese Restaurant, someone suggested me Wasabi on my last evening in Basel. So, I took my bike and ran, and as soon I reached it was already 8pm and they were closing. I told them this is my last day... More

I've bee living in Basel for 7 years and I think I tried all Japanese restaurants in the region. No one compares to Wasabi. I've been there today for the first time to taste a sushi menu: delicious. The menu offers wonderful dishes, bento boxes and sushi to go...everything is perfect and the quality of the food is outstanding! I... More

I've lived in Basel for nearly 3 years now and have tried nearly all the sushi places. As this is purely a take away place, I never got around to going here until this weekend. In summary I've wasted my time as this is is by far the best in town. It is Japanese owned and their quality is great.... More

I have worked in Basel for 5 months now (part time) and had yet to find a restaurant to tell anyone about - disappointing really. Wasabi is finally a place to shout about. The other Japanese's in town don't employ Japanese chefs and offer the menu options that students can prepare - udon, gyoza etc. Wasabi makes everything from scratch... More

By far the best sushi in town! Super friendly stuff. Food is for take away only. It would be awesome to have a restaurant as well.

Sadly since the SBB stopped renting the restaurant space to the most longstanding and well loved Japanese restaurant SAKURA - which closed and was never replaced by anything that could even mildly compete, Basel was not the place to go for sushi. Switzerland being landlocked this doesn't really come as that much of a surprise. Sushi options in Basel: Noohn... More

Okay, so Wasabi is primarily a japanese to-go place in Basel...but this doesn't prevent it from having the best sushi in the city. We believe it is owned and managed by Japanese ex-pats, which distinguishes it from most of the Japanese-food restaurants we have met in the region. We've been going there for the past few years, getting their sushi... More
