Better Than I Expected

After reading some of the reviews, which almost kept me away, I was quite impressed with this little gem. Amazingly, despite all the construction in the area, and an orange construction fence placed around the perimeter of the restaurant, this place is surviving. The waitress was friendly and... read more

Everywhere is under construction, the security guard said this place has good food (despite other reviews on the other site). Had dinner here. Well, the server and the owner (I believe) are very nice. Sashimi is fresh (but only taste ok) [i had sashimi in Japan and the top restaurants in NYC so, maybe I am asking too much!]

My waiter Jason was excellent and never allowed my iced tea to remain empty for long, however, the sushi was just average. I could tell that the spicy tuna roll used old tuna (which I understand is common, but this was older than usual) and the rainbow roll contained some fish that I had never encountered before. The salad was... More

Sushi is beautiful and by far the best presentation in Jackson. However, the quality fell short. They were out of the special sauce for the lobster roll. When I asked about it the server said he didn't know it came with a special sauce. I had to point it out on the the menu. He left the table and came... More

We tried Wasabi looking for a decent sushi experience and it delivered. We ordered the Samurai and Lobster Rolls. They were beautifully presented and better than anything we've had in the Jackson Metro Area. The restaurant is clean and sets a great mood…staff is very helpful and professional. The menu is very extensive so there's something for everyone. Worth the... More

Was looking for fried rice and chicken in a very cool environment. I found this place a while back and loved it...and its gotten better! It's like a taste of ATL in the heart of Jackson, MS!

I'm glad to have the option of Ewing sushi or hibachi downtown, but this is not the best. Don't get me wrong, the good is good but just not as good as other places. The prices are good tho. The bento box is my fav for lunch. You get plenty of food for around $9. The scenery is great. Parking... More

We waited 20 minutes no one came to our table. So we left. At least get our drink order. All the reviews were so good. Oh well.

Love this place! I like when they come out with the warm towels what a nice touch! Keep up the great work, and stay in the downtown area, hopefully more businesses would come back.

Wasabi is a pretty good sushi restaurant. I have never been there when it is very crowded, so I have always had excellent, fast service. The rolls are delicious and the wine selection is good. The location is in the heart of downtown and easily accessible.
