Great authentic sushi found in downtown Kelowna. The chef and staff are very friendly and the decor and atmosphere is rather peaceful. If you are going out for sushi in Kelowna you need to check this spot out and experience their menu.

We start our 6 days Kelowna trip with this restaurant as the 1st dinner. Service is good with the Japanese lady came from Japan. As we are looking for a more traditional Japanese restaurant, it did not fit to our profile. They mainly serve the fusion Japanese food with average quality. If you are like us, looking for a traditional... More

We went here for dinner based on the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant is a block or so off the main strip of restaurants, but it is well worth the visit. We ordered a few different sushi rolls to share, including a tuna and corn one from the specials menu. We also had the spicy chicken karage dish from... More

Everybody in our family was surprised with the great selection of sushi and how fresh and tasty they were! Nicest staff too. We'll definitely try that again during next visit to Kelowna!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Wasabi. Sat by the open front wall on a warm night and ordered several rounds of food, mainly from the menu of specials. Everything was tasty and prices were reasonable. Friendly, efficient service. I recommend you check it out!

It was a pleasant surprise to find this gem in Kelowna. The dishes were comparable to those found in Vancouver downtown. Only thing is, if you have green tea, it's a dollar per person.

Went here for the first time during a Groupon. Staff is nice but tend to get a little flustered during high times and seem to scramble around. The Groupon savings is pretty small and would like to see a better deal for couples rather better deals for couples of 4. Sushi is well prepared though and have lots of different... More

We craved Japanese food, checked the iPad on our day trip to Kelowna and found this lovely little treasure. The service was fast and friendly and the food fresh, colourful and so delicious. This will now be our "go-to" restaurant whenever we're in Kelowna!
