Group of eight had dinner there and were a little disappointed. Some meals came out cold and my main (spatchcock) was cold and dry. The waiters all looked bored. Such a shame because it was great when it was at Sunshine Beach. And the location is great. They need to play some music to add atmosphere too (maybe they forgot... More

My husband and I had the 9 course tasting menu with beverage pack. The food and beverage package matching was world class. Definitely worth trying. The staff were knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The desert was to die fo r and a really special treat. Outstanding

We frequented this establishment every year for 6 years when we went to Noosa. It was always incredible. Now they have changed the menu and no longer have the delicious a la carte options - only set menus seemingly aimed at hitting your wallet more than your taste buds. Food was okay but nothing to rave about especially with a... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your meal after dining with us for years. I just wanted to clarify your comment that we "No longer have the delicious a la carte options". We do in fact still have the same number of A la Carte options on our menu. The menu does evolve, of course, but almost all of... More

This is not a family restaurant as food and wines are expensive but it offers a unique experience if you like Japanese food. Shame the best desert is no longer offered (Japanese Plum Brulee)

Wasabi is the place in noosa to go for a true "foodie" experience. We chose the 3 course menus, and all of the 7 of us enjoyed our food . The lamb and tuna tartare were particular stand outs. Service was prompt, perhaps a little reserved but the meal was a memorable experience. The price was hefty, an example of... More

I am very happy to hear you enjoyed your evening with us. I have checked our wine list and you are correct, the Krug NV 350ml is not priced correctly. It returned to the menu not long ago and an error was made in calculating the sale price. For example when comparing our prices , we offer a bottle of... More

I love Wasabi - every time we visit my parents I insist on eating here to get my dose of delicious Queensland produce showcased as Japanese food. Wasabi is a world class restaurant and the residents of Noosa are extremely lucky to have it. I recommend the omakase - let the chef select a series of dishes to try which... More

If you seek perfection then this is for you! Undoubtedly one of the finest outlooks, with food and service to match. Exquisite food. Exquisite service. Excellent selection of wines. Not somewhere for the budget conscious. This is strictly first class. Plan for a long lunch, you won't to leave!

From the very start we were welcomed and given full attention by the staff in a manner of professionalism and style. The menu surprised me as it firstly appeared to be a set menu which I was not keen on. After some negotiation .... We modified the Sashimi to our personal needs and can honestly say, it was the best... More
