We have eaten at Wasabiya several times this year and think it is the best sushi in Campbell River. We particularly like the spicy grilled tuna (cooked to your preferred 'doneness'), dynamite rolls and spicy agedashi tofu. The staff are always friendly and efficient. The place is usually busy so reservations are a good idea unless you visit ahead of... More

My husband and I enjoyed our New Year's Eve sushi dinner immensely! We highly recommend the soft shelled crab appetizer, futomaki and dynamite rolls . The tempura prawns and vegetables are positively scrumptious !! The hot saki hit the spot on a cold New Year's Eve ... Although the restaurant was busy, service was excellent ! We made reservations and... More

I eat here on more than a regular basis. With my husband for a date or with a group of friends. The staff is very well educated on the menu, and all incredibly helpful and always as accommodating as possible. Hiro is an amazing man.

Ordered take out while visiting my folks on the island. Walked in to place my (large) order which was ready, as promised, 40 minutes later. I work in the heart of downtown Vancouver and eat sushi often ~ I have to say that the sushi from Wasabiya was right up there. The Dungeness crab and scallop nigiri was some of... More

Wasabiya is my favourite sushi restaurant in Campbell River. I find that many of the sushi joints that have recently opened up in town are over sauced, over-fried and overly sweet. Wasabiya does sushi right, adding the perfect amount of flavour/ingredient combinations as to not take away from the experience of tasting what is actually in the rolls etc.. The... More

We ordered take out a couple of nights ago. Have had a good meal in the past when we dined in. The take out was absolutely horrible . We threw most of it out. It seems take out is the way Wasabi gets rid of their unsold merchandise. Fearing food poisoning we threw it out. We were leaving early the... More
