Very good Sushi food. No 5 stars because the ambiance is a little lacking, but overall a very good Sushi place based on the food quality alone.

We have been to Wasabi Zen several times over the past few years....sushi still decent....but the service is really hung backwards! Tools us 20 minutes to have our order taken after we were seated. Only one server for the restaurant and she also ran the cash register. Our initial drink order was also served with the miso soup. Table was... More

We have tried different sushi restaurants, but we always think that this is the best. The place is small, one of the waitress is not that friendly, the rest of them are very good. Overall good restaurant.

Went there for lunch. Place empty but waitress did not pay attention to us. Had chicken teriyaki & chicken over cooked, boiled with bland sauce poured over. Dumplings inedible. I have been to this place dozen of times & decent but it has gone downhill. & it is over priced. It is better to drive to Rockville for decent sushi... More

We're Onley locals and have heard of Wasabi Zen forever...but tried it for the first time yesterday. The interior is fresh and bright. Service friendly and not rushed. We had a variety or rolls - all very good. Presentation was a bit messy. Not the best sushi we've had, but a nice addition to our neighborhood repetoire.

This little place is my favorite for Sushi. Honestly have never ordered anything else on the menu so I can't attest to all the food. That being said, I will say the rolls are all made with creative, fresh ingredients. My family loves the Hawaiian sunset. Try the green tree roll if you like eel and the California Yammy is... More

Incredible sushi combinations, always fresh and creative, very friendly, loyal to locals. Favorites are 911 roll with spicy tuna and crab, Las Vegas with tempura shrimp and crab, spicy rainbow. Family loves the teriaki and katsu as well. A truly wonderful local place and among the best sushi in the DC area.

This is my favorite sushi, anywhere. Creative, but has the basics too. Dragon roll with soft shell crab, spicy rainbow, 911 with spicy crab, Las Vegas with shrimp tempura, and anything else you could want. Chicken Katsu and nabiaki udon are great too. Kids love the teriaki. Everyone leaves happy and then owners and help are so very nice. If... More

I've been to a lot of sushi places in the Baltimore-Maryland area, and this is one of the best ones I've found. We had a couple of rolls, and all were great. Especially the eel...

This small restaurant has the best sushi in Olney. The balance of fish and rice is what makes the experience delicious and delightful. The place gets crowded - especially at the start of the weekend. Service is prompt and staff is friendly. Parking is limited and sometime spaces are available on the backside of restaurant.
