Description: Wasabi restaurant & bar, overhanging the scenic Noosa River, opposite the Noosa Recreation Reserve, is the brainchild of owner and Young Restaurateur of the Year Award recipient Danielle Gjestland. The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Voted Queensland's #1 regional restaurant for the 2013 Good Food Guide, two chefs hats and listed in Gourmet Travellers top 100 restaurants , Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.

We dined at Wasabi last night, just the two of us. Had only been here once before in a larger group, so it was lovely to try it by ourselves. After some indecision we chose the Omakase menu, taking the 7 course option. We opted to just buy wine by the bottle and glass and had great service from the... More

Excellent quality, presentation, service, ambience. Little on the expensive side, and small portions, but you cannot fault it. One of Australia's finest dining.

So many pluses - great location by the river, top service and quality food. Portions are small so it can be seen as expensive and its probably not a location that you would splurge on every week but for a special occasion, hard to beat.

Wasabi serves delicious Japansese food. We had a 7 course set menu with beverage matching. The food was excellent and well presented. Service was very good, and the explanations for the choice of matching wine/sake made the whole experience even better. Note, quality does come at a price, we paid $200 per person.

Make sure you book in advance otherwise you will be sorely disappointed if you miss out on this outstanding Japanese experience in Noosa. Decor sets the mood from the outset and the friendly staff were more than accommodating. With spectacular views of the Noosa river, the cuisine does not disappoint. We had the 7 course degustation and were rewarded with... More

Returned to Wasabi on our visit to Noosa and again had a delicious meal. We had one of the seven course meals, and each course was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. My only hesitation in recommending the 7 course meal is that you need to be hungry. There was a lot of food and in the... More

Well, off we excitedly went once again to Wasabi - this time for our Christmas lunch. We've been there several times before and thoroughly enjoyed it - which is why we go back. However, something didn't seem quite right yesterday - and we can't put our finger on it. We ordered the 9 course Omakase as we have done before... More

I recently dined here but what should have been an especially lovely evening was utterly spoiled by the greedy owners/management. We were told we had to leave before we could even order dessert or after dinner drinks because they said they wanted our table for more diners! (Please note this is the ONLY reason- we were quiet and polite and... More
