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!

Japanese restaurants have become somewhat generic but this place is anything but. You won't find a bento box anywhere. The chef is from Kyoto and there is a definite Kansai flavour to the place. Wonderful takes on prawns and soba noodles that you won't find anywhere else. Great food quality and value.

We discovered Wasabi almost immediately upon returning to Kelowna after watching a food network show about Izakayas. Although the party atmosphere might be a little lacking, the promise of good food with good friends is always fulfilled whenever we visit. The food is uncompromisingly Japanese, but updated to include modern flare. You will not find more original flavours and precise... More

I really enjoyed my meal here. The funny part was that I had looked up its location prior to driving from Calgary a couple of days before going, and forgot the name. Instead of Lawrence and Pandosy we went to Lawrence and Ellis, and sat down at the Japanese restaurant there. The first couple of minutes I thought to myself,... More
