Went in and was immediately greeted by the owner (seems like a family run business, which is great). Decor of restaurant was good and clean - no issues there. Was given a menu and despite the fact that there were only 3 other people in the restaurant, she took 10 minutes before even bothering to come over to take the... More

Date with 7 year old. She loves sushi. Me not so much. This was excellent. Servers very helpful. Place is exceptionally clean. Prices are very affordable. Best sushi I've ever had. Granddaughter described the food to her mom as fancy.

This place has everything I look for in a restaurant. Great food, great value, and great service. We were in Vernon from West Kelowna (over an hour drive) to watch Gerry Dee and we were pleasantly surprised. My wife and I were both craving sushi for dinner and having lived in Victoria and Vancouver we were pretty hesitant, assuming the... More

Sometimes the most unassuming looking places can have the best food. This is one of those cases. Just a small storefront, although tastefully decorated. And the aromas were delightful. We ordered and were very happy with the Prawn Tempura - the tempura was light and not at all greasy. My husband and I both ordered rolls - Rose for my... More

Nice atmosphere. The prices are leaning towards up-scale, but the quality of the food really shines through everything here. Miso soup was excellent, and the tea was especially excellent (often overlooked...)

So I only had a bit of sushi for a snack. Big balls of warm rice topped with a large thin slices of slimy fish...so first impression was not great. I won't say it poisoned me but the toilet may disagree. The selection of fish is very small but don't confuse the lack of quantity for an emphasis on quality.... More

Wasabi is definitely the best Sushi in Vernon. I've been there a number of times and it never fails to impress. Dishes are fresh, delicious and presented beautifully. The menu has something for everyone - there's a wide variety of favourite Japanese and Sushi items and some different rolls that are unique and tasty. The service is excellent and there... More
