Birthday dinner in July. The food was lovely however the waitress let us down. Wish I had read the reviews before dining as we would've given it a miss and dined at one of the many other restaurants in Noosa Heads. The reviews about the staff being up themselves and having a chip on their shoulders are correct. A little... More

I had always been fond of Wasabi when it was first opened in Sunshine Beach and spent many lovely hours there spellbound by the elegant presentation of the food and the off beat choice of dishes so unlike the run of the mill sushi trains that have mushroomed in our major cities. It was with absolute delight that I recently... More

The food here was delicious. Each course is tiny but the flavours just explode in your mouth. the service was 10/10. They were attentive and helpful. It was a very memorable evening. It was pricey but we were happy to pay for such a special night of dining.

We travel and like to take in different experiences This restaurant was below average of what we would normally get in Sydney. Poor food delivery can wait up to 30minutes between meals or 3 dumped oat once. These chiefs should go to Sydney and check the 3 best in Sydney and see where they are getting it wrong.

Amazing fresh Japanese food, beautiful presentation, great service and a relaxed atmosphere even with 2 kids in tow! The kids loved their 3-course meal too.

Another we've only just had the opportunity to visit , and it's been long anticipated. We've traveled Japan extensively , and frequently , and have hosted Japanese Students , so we are consciously aware of many of Japanese nuances. So , we had very high expectations , and today , the experience matched the expectation perfectly. We chose the Wakeru... More

This is a great restaurant experience. The menu is approachable and easy to understand and in our case every course exceeded expectations. It is a restaurant we will talk about for many years to come and will recommend to friends.
