Good Sushi, Great Weekday Deal

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

Extensive selection of sushi. Also have other options for those who don't eat sushi. Attentive service and good food make it worth a visit.

First thing: Wasabi 88 opens at 5:00 pm. I have eaten here three times. Service wasn't great the first time, but was much better the last two times. I ate Hot and Spicy Shrimp each time. I really like it because it has large shrimp, water chestnuts, and bamboo shoots. I also like the BOGO sushi. This last time, the... More

We used to make this a weekly place for dinner, but lately the portions are shrinking and the service isn't as good as it used to be. Although the food is still tasty, it is missing an element that used to make it special. A little bit disappointed in our last few visits.
