Good Asian food

Liked the choices. Soup serving was too small. Spring rolls--one order enough for 2 people. Wait staff very good. Busy restaurant.

This was a very good meal had the Filet cut with a fork like butter. Pricey but worth it. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly.

The exterior of this restaurant is very nice looking; the interior was a big disappointment. The restaurant is very noisy and the wait staff were slow. The food is mediocre at best.

The sushi was good, very tasty but very pricey! We were visiting from out of town and the hostess took forever to seat us even though almost all the tables were open. The server then told us about the buy one get one special but neglected to tell us that it's only going to remove the lowest roll for the... More

I really like Wasabi 88's specialty rolls, though I'd recommend visiting Sunday-Thursday to take advantage of the buy one, get one rolls. The restaurant itself is decent. There are plenty of tables and a bar area. Service is good and relatively quick.

We had a great waiter but the food was not good at all. We are not sushi eaters, so that probably makes a difference. I've always heard the sushi is good...but none of the four of us at our table thought the food had sufficient seasoning. Though our waiter was nice at the end of the meal, as often happens... More

Wasabi 88 has a great ambiance, but to me the sushi is just alright. I love that they have live music here some days and it is a good place to hang out with friends. The food is just okay to me.

Very good sushi, and the best I've found in Greenville. Sunday through Thursday is the time to go--2 for 1 specialty sushi rolls. Some standard rolls, and some very creative, like the "Junk in the Trunk" and "Red Velvet." They do have Asahi (Japanese beer). It can be a very loud place, due to the structure and layout, and service... More

I'm honestly split on this place. To be honest the sushi is indeed the best in Greenville, NC. We have been to them all, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it was great, as far as sushi goes this is average at best. The atmosphere here is very good, the restaurant is HUGE inside, and I mean HUGE, which probably... More
