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.

Having experienced omakase elsewhere (eg. matsuhisa in Vail) degustation menus elsewhere (eg. Esquire), we thought the food was as excellent as reviewed by John Lethlean for the Australian. The timing between dishes could have been better. The portions for our 7 course omakase were quite modest in size (amuse bouche size), except for the final wagyu flank was deliciously tender... More

Had dinner over the weekend after booking on short notice. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable on all elements within the menu and the extensive and very descriptive sake list (much to my liking!). I especially liked the wasabi that you had to grate yourself it kept me busy. Some dishes were small and overpriced but overall top quality produce... More

Loved this resturant! Food was fantastic, drinks were matched perfectly with all meals and service was great. The menu is definitely pricey but my partner and I were so full by the end of the night it was worth ever penny. Definitely will be returning.

Had lunch at Wasabi (only open certain days for lunch so please check)... it is worth going to lunch as it is over the Noosa River. We caught the little ferry which picks you up from the back of the Sheraton and it is the first drop off right outside Wasabi. The menu is amazing and the knowledge of the... More

Having dined here occasionally in the past we decided to have a celebration dinner here again. It is true dining and not simply eating. The food quality is impeccable and is consistently great. The service is outstanding, wait staff who are professional rather than those who work for a bit of part time cash, they actually know what they are... More

What a place. Our experience from phone booking to leaving was excellent. The food was stunning. We were a party of eight - three adults and five kids. The children were treated respectfully and they enjoyed the teriyaki spatchcock immensely along with miso and gyoza. As for us adults everything was bloody good.

Wasabi provided one of the best dining experiences of our lives. The quality, freshness and flavour of the food was outstanding. Notable, was the opportunity to try fresh wasabi- grated at the table by our waitress. The outlook from our table was stunning. A magnificent sunset across the Noosa River. The service-impeccable!! Our waitress was not only knowledgeable, but eloquent... More

We had booked online to dine at Rocksalt(a nearby restaurant) but realised when we got there we had mistakenly booked for a same-named restaurant on the Gold Coast and they were fully booked. Anyway we were able to get into Wasabi. I was tentative as I was not a big fan of Japanese cuisine. Suffice to say I am now... More

6 of us enjoyed a fantastic meal at Wasabi, we cose a 7 course degustation, innovative food beautifully presented. We also ordered the optional matching beverage pack but it was rather expensive. Check your bill. In our case 3 of us ordered extras but they charged extras for all 6. Sevice was also excellent.
