Location and contact

The only 2 hat restaurant in Noosa, Wasabi restaurant & bar overhangs the scenic Noosa River, opposite the Noosa Recreation Reserve. The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Voted Queensland's #1 regional restaurant for the Good Food Guide, awarded two chefs hats, listed in Gourmet Travellers top 100 restaurants, and voted the Hottest Regional Restaurant in the Australians Hot 50 List, Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.

After doing a cooking class here in 2017 we thought we would return to dine and booked early to get a waterfront table and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting. We ordered the four course tasting menu which at $90 isn’t cheap, no,...More

My husband and I went to Wasabi for our last night in Noosa and although the food and service was great, the portions were small and the price exorbitant. Despite the bill ($500 for two), the staff were lovely and extremely knowledgeable. The food was...More

This should be taken as a total experience; not to judge each course and morsel of food. The wonderful setting by the river is best enjoyed at the early setting to enjoy the superb sunsets but apart from the natural environment, the attention to every...More

Liked the atmosphere but this restaurant is not the same as when I used to go to it. Firstly it is NOT Japanese. They use wasabi and ginger and of course soya sauce but that is it. Small bits of food usually inedible. I kept...More
