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

Hidden in a random strip mall in Campbell River, this small restaurant produces some surprisingly excellent dishes. The salmon salad appetizer comes with an incredible sauce and the spicy tuna appie is a local favorite for good reason. Tempura is light and full of flavour and the Gyoza had a nice crunch to it. Flavorful sauces, fresh and good quality... More

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. Always very informative of where about his food products come from, always fresh and almost... More
