Nice place, a little hard to find at first - was a bit further down the road than I thought. It's in a complex beside a Starbucks. The menu is in Spanish, but there were some pictures to help our little bit of Spanish. The food was great - they modified rolls for us. Great place for some non Mexican... More

Best sushi ever tasted. It is a great restaurant with Japanese food. Kyoto and Tokyo sushi were great. Great place to chat.

If your cab driver doesn't know where Wazaaabi is, just tell them Plaza Peninsula. Nice outdoor seating area as well as indoor. Nice atmosphere and bar. The sushi was beautifully presented and incredibly tasty. Huge menu of rolls with pictures. Descriptions are in Spanish, so... good luck with that. Didn't matter though, it was delicious. The owner came out and... More

We have eaten at Wazaaabi several times when it first opened. The food was always fresh and great. We recently visited after 3 years and were extremely disappointed. The edamame was old with no crunch. The sushi was served warm when it is generally cold. We tried several of the sushi items all again served warm and with a lot... More

This was the first time we went to this restaurant thinking that it was an excellent oriental cuisine non the less we found that it does not compare at all with others. The menu is not in English and it is confusing. Once you order you do not receive what you expected and as a whole it was not the... More

I have been to Wazaaabi like 4 times in the last month and it is excellent every time. You can get the standard Nigiri Sushi and basic rolls but they have tons of tasty specialty rolls. We like to start off with some Edamame. One thing I try to remember to do is to order the red wine at room... More

We visited Wazaaabi based on reviews from Trip Advisor and the recommendation of the person who owns the villa we rented. We were not disappointed, it was very good. If there was any issue, it was the fact they didn't have any menus in english, which others have mentioned. Our server said the english menus would be there in two... More

Came here on Valentine's Day for some sushi. We were staying in the Hotel Zone and took the bus to Nader Ave, and from there caught a cab which only cost 30-40 pesos. Really easy and cheap way to get there. Yes, the entire menu is in spanish so we spent a good half hour trying to figure out what... More

Bit hard to find (mostly because of the google maps app- confused with the place across the street) but totally worth it!! The food was super fresh and delicious (muy rico!), the best sushi I've had in a while... the staff is really nice and very friendly, our nice waiter Carlos translated the whole manu for me and had great...
