I would say it's the best place to get sushi in Abu Dhabi. But we don't have many options anyway, so it's not too difficult to be the best there. I wouldn't say it is the best sushi I've ever tried. But it is quite decent. I like their private cabins so you can feel comfortable eating alone, or with... More

The setting of the restaurant is probably the most traditional of all the Japanese restaurants in Abu Dhabi. The chef behind their sushi counter is serene, focused and delivers beautiful products. City's favorite!

I dine alone on a regul and basis and Wasabi is one of my favourite spots for the occasion. They hace proviate booth which is great for some people don't feel comfortable eating alone, for me it's just a nice little space without any interruption. Food is good and always consistent, so if you're looking for a good quiet place... More

I had an awesome dinner with a friend here. They close you in your own private room and come in to serve when you call them. Top service and nice restaurant. I would go again!

Nothing was brought to our table on time and we had to press the buzzer more than twice whenever we wanted something. The food is... More

Husband and I have come many times and find the sushi to be quite fresh. Especially the salmon sashimi. It almost melts in your mouth like butter! Problem is- they don't always give you this same quality fish. For instance, we ordered salmon sashimi which came first, then two other dishes that came later that had salmon pieces in them.... More

The food was pretty good, but for the price, the service was horrible. The place has a pretty cool arrangement with partitioned booths and rooms. The staff was friendly but it took about 5 minutes to get water. Actually it took about 5 minutes before anyone walked past our section. The lady did take our order and everything came out... More

I went there for about 5 times.. It's a little bit pricey therefore it worth every penny.. Quality of the seafood and the raw fishes are excellent.. you just can taste it.. The sashimi and sushi are the best in town.. try the seafood platter.. best scallop I ever taste.. The only downside is the location.. It's a little bit... More
