I was stuffed afterwards. My husband had Ramen noodle soup and crispy oyster. He ate it all! I had never been... read more

Wasabiya is a more traditional sushi restaurant with amazing fresh sushi. Love the spicy prawn tempura rolls and the agedashi.

By far the best sushi and beef teriyaki in Campbell river. They use a real steak, not shredded beef.

Really nice to find a good sushi restaurant that serves fresh, tasty food. Need to book over the phone well in advance and expect a wait if you are doing takeaway. Plan ahead though as the food is well worth it!

Campbell Rivers best destination for Sushi. Chef Hiro is the master and creator of an exceptional variety of Japanese dishes and Sushi. Start with Campbell River Salmon Salad roll and Teppan style mushrooms and Scallops. Just one word, Delicious! Then treat your pallet to an extensive variety of rolls, tempura, sashimi, nigiri and unique creations featuring Japanese tradition and West... More

One of the best Sushi bars I have ever eaten at! Small and hard to get into (I told you the food was that good!), must make a reservation in advance or you'll be squeezed in at the end of the night when you are almost starving :) Great staff, fast service, tasty food all around and small but cosy...

I have been going to wasabiya for many years and have never been disappointed. They use fresh ingredients and have amazing traditional sushi, every time I am back in town to visit my family wasabiya is one of the places to go. I would also suggest making reservations and they are very busy all the time

This small restaurant has good, Japanese sushi. The owner/chef is Japanese and sticks to traditional sushi, which is great! Although busy and quite small, there is good selection with specials and the food is quite consistently tasty. Lots of parking in the strip mall. Reservations recommended, or take-away!

Really like the specialty rolls and some of the best tempura around! Cozy atmosphere and good location with lots of parking. Reservations are recommended as they can get pretty busy.

We've been here many times and went for a Tuesday dinner. We were so disappointed I don't think we will be back. We had a good sampling of the cooked and uncooked items. Most things were good but the Toro was off and the chef through the server lectured us about what it shoukd taste like and how it had... More
