This was horrible. I have never complained about sushi especially since I don't get it very often. The spicy tuna mush in the Tsunami roll was gagging and the cucumber on the outside was too much to chew. I did not eat that roll. The Don roll was not flavorful. Also the waitresses were so focused on prepping silverware and... More

I really wanted to like this place. My wife sent me here after searching this site. It had a sense of a great find in an undiscovered hall in the wall. Well "A Metzia" it wasn't. The price is reasonable and the server was nice but the fish was far from fresh, comes to think of it, I never had... More

This is my favorite place in Roanoke to get sushi. The sweet potatoes tempura rolls is my favorite! The lovers roll is really good too. It is small and dark but the food is excellent.

Its hard for me to do a complete review of this place, since we only went for lunch and had no sushi. We tried the Bento Box lunch and it was ok, nothing to write home about. Our daughter fell asleep while we ate, which I thought was cute but cut our lunch short and we had to leave before... More

We were really surprised at just how good the food was here. Clearly this restaurant does not rest on its excellent location and attractive interior; the food gets serious attention. We have stopped a couple of times and ordered from the lunch menu; all tasty and all reasonably priced. Well done.

My daughter liked the Bento Box. My wife enjoyed the sushi. I had salmon dinner that was very good. A nice hole in the wall restaurant, great chef!

I love the sushi here. Always fresh never "fishy" tasting or smelling. They have a nice variety of combos to choose from and if you order it to go they package it up like pros!

Wasabi has the best sushi and the portions are very generous. Need to try the Lovers Roll and the Salmon sushi they are great. If you don't like sushi there are other items on the menu to enjoy. The fried rice is delicious as well.

I had heard Wasabi made good sushi, so we gave it a try. I ordered a favorite, soft-shelled crab prepared as a making roll. Oh dear. First of all, the rice was prepared with a particularly sweet rice vinegar. Secondly, it was very hard to detect any crab inside the heavily breaded and fried tempura. My lunch companion said it...

We eat here often...because I work close by. My friends really like their sushi menu, but I tend to stick more toward traditional dishes, like beef or chicken. I can honestly say I have always been pleased, and the place it always crowded, so I must not be the only one!!
