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!!

This place often fills up quickly and the seating because the space is so small ends up feeling elbow to elbow. It's dark and not exactly current in its motif but is typical of many downtown establishments that see a lot of traffic year after year. Seems like it may have been a dive bar once in its history. Nevertheless... More

The shogun potatoes are to die for. We could make a meal on just this. Our adult children like to eat here for their birthdays but for my husband and I we like other chinese places better.

My wife and I have very mixed feelings about Wasabi's. We love the sushi, having tried several offerings. We especially love the Dang Bang Shrimp appetizer. And their ginger salad is very good. But the wine selection is bad. And the atmosphere and tables are not good at all. Too dark, and uncomfortable; especially the benches against the wall. As... More

We LOVE Wasabi's! We live 2 hours away(one way!) and this is our FAVORITE holiday gift! ANYTIME we have a special day, we forego gifts in favor of dinner at this restaurant. We LOVE the Spicy Salmon Hand rolls and the rainbow rolls! Outstanding Sushi and Sashimi!

You know how "trying a sushi place" can be a little scary? We tried this one for you. It is delicious, the staff is great and the price is fair. We will eat here again next time we are in the area.

Took our daughter and husband here for dinner this past Saturday night. The food, service and atmosphere was great as always. The staff is great and Santiago does a great job with the sushi. Very good portions and fairly priced. The gyoza( dumplings) plump and fantastic....always a favorite.
