Best Sushi Around!

Love love love Mr. Wasabi. It's fast, the service is great, and the food is delicious. The one word of caution I would like to give, however, is that as a vegetarian, the vegetable dumplings may or may not contain pork. I've gotten them numerous times, and the porkiness is hit or miss. They also... read more

Miso Soup came out hot, very good, salad crisp and cold, service good. Went down hill from here. Sushi was warm and a little dry, slightly bland. Partner ordered Teriyaki Steak, came out cold on a cold plate, tasted ok, just cold. Only two other tables occupied on a Saturday evening, not a good sign to begin with. Atmosphere was... More

Sometimes you want to just sit quietly with a friend and have a meal you know will be good and have the food be the background for the time you are spending together. This is a local restaurant that prepares sushi with either white or brown rice (which I prefer), with an incredibly friendly staff and sushi chefs who send... More

Didn't expect to find this gem so close to home. Mr Wasabi is a storefront restaurant so I never thought much about eating there. I heard from friends and family that it was worth checking out, so my son and I decided to give it a try. He actually suggested it, since he had recently had some sushi takeout. Our... More

OwnerJackie has created hometown warmth in a delightful restaurant on upper Union Street in Schenectady. Mr. Wasabi has wonderful handmade rolls, delicious entrees and terrifically spiced soups. If it's great sushi you want, this is your place! The fish is generous and fresh. One of my favorites in all my travels... Glad it's here at home!

My friend lived in Japan and became a "sushi-snot" and will only eat at Mr. Wasabi. She introduced me to this place a few years ago and we've never been able to find a petter place that compares. There are cheaper places, even all you can eat places, but you get what you pay for. The quality here is top-notch!

Mr. Wasabi is a bit of a drive for me, but when I am craving amazing sushi rolls, this is one of the places that I go. And it's always worth the drive, every time. The staff is never a disappointment; even on busy, crowded nights, the service is still good. The food is always fantastic and they have an... More

My friend and I both got noodle dishes for dinner. She got the shrimp and I got the scallops for the same price. The shrimp is a much better deal since you get a good number of shrimp but I got very few scallops, and tiny ones at that. But the soup with vegetables was very good and the moon... More

This is a very good sushi restaurant with great wait staff and good food. I have been there several times and would go weekly if I did not live an hour away!
