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.

A special occasion birthday. We decided on the "Wakeru" - the tasting menu, and a pleasant Scotchman's Hill Sauvignon Blanc to accompany. Elegantly presented, each course arrived and offered quite varying tectures and flavours - preapred with Japanese cooking paired with local ingredients. (Noosa must be a Sushi chef's idea of heaven!!). Impeccable service from the staff who were very... More

4 Adults and 5 Children looked forward to a birthday dinner at Wasabi and came away extremely dissapointed and basically "ripped off".After some confusion between the Waitress explaining what dishes would be suitable for all of us we settled on the "Wakeru" Menu which states for two people or more and consists of what most would call basic Japanese fare...

We too were extremely disappointed. In all of my and your waitress's careers we have never seen behaviour like this. After the waitress had explained to you the dishes on the menu, that were most suitable for children, despite her recommendations, you proceeded to order a 7 course degustation at $89 per person. You ordered for two of the children... More

The food was fresh, superbly presented and of top quality. The staff who served us were very polite and understanding of our special dietary requirements on this night and obliged in a professional and friendly manner. The chef was also wonderful to accommodate. This is a gastro restaurant and so expect the prices and serving sizes to match, it may... More

Our evening at Wasabe lived up to all of the recommendations we had heard prior to booking. The food was delightful; quality ingredients beautifully presented. The service was excellent, and with a level of knowledge about the origins of food and wine which was second to none. I saw another review which complained about the time taken to serve the... More

My partner and I had our annual joint birthday dinner here last Saturday. Lovely restaurant and amazing food. We got off to a bit of a dodgy start after choosing the degustation 7 courses, with matching beverages ( they do a great mixture of wines, sake and cocktail to complement each course) as the young waiter we had, seemed a...

Very fine attention to detail in all aspects. Service staff very knowledgeable from food to sake to wine. Service prompt but professional. Food presented beautifully and our omakase sequenced well. An amazing piece of wagyu a cooked to perfection - was the last course. Very highly recommend, but take your credit card.

We had a wonderful dinner at Wasabi, where the staff did an amazing job at managing dietary issues. Food was amazing. Service was spot on. We'd recommend anyone visiting Noosa to book in for a special dinner at Wasabi.

We have been wanting to visit Wasabi since we arrived in Noosa and finally visited March 21st. It was exceptional! I love the fresh japanese style but since my partner isn't familiar with this type of food I chose the Wakeru menu, which was great for the two of us to share. It was full of all the favourites but... More
