I've always enjoyed Wasabi's Mahbula branch the most. few years ago, they used to play traditional Japanese music together with the dimmed lights at night give you a relaxed mood. When it is comes to the food, it is another amazing experience, the menu is rich and suit most tastes from grilled to deep fried! The best Sushi i've ever... More

Went there for a business lunch. Salad and miso egg plant was good. Sushi was ok except for the toro which was nice. Sukiyaki was a disappointment. Although we were the only customers for lunch, the service staff was really lousy.

Greetings all. I've just returned from Wasabi, on the circle, not Avenues. I ordered Eel Nigiri they brought me Eel maki. on top of being the wrong order it was all rice with a thin little square of Eel on top, useless. Next was a "naked" whatever that is, Tuna tartar roll. Again, all rice with a few little cubes... More

Expensive if you want to shout some friends out for a meal, but recently, they had 50% off the entire menu whihc made it do-able. Some of the sushi and maki is a little on the bland side, but the ebi tempura and the crispy tempura rolls are amazing.

Great food. I'm not a big sushi fan, but they have plenty of cooked options as well. Try their Rock Squid and Rock Shrimp. Amazing!

It thought this place was ok, but I wouldn't have driven across town for it. I had a bowl of noodles that was unremarkable.
