Favorite place for sushi

Great food. Great staff. Awesome chef. He always comes to the table to ask about your meal. Usually very few people in the restaurant, which I appreciate but can't figure out why.

My husband and I really enjoy sushi and this place served some really good sushi. We came over Christmas break with our kids and really enjoyed our dinner at Wasabi sushi. While I don't remember what we each specifically ordered, we both had a couple sushi rolls and they were all really good. Would go back in a heartbeat if... More

Had a girls lunch. I had a bowl of the tofu soup, it was really god and the portion was very large. We ordered a varied selection of sushi, the sushi was very fresh and tasted great. Will definitely eat there again.

The restaurant is located in the corner of a strip mall, yet the ambiance inside was nice. The sushi was good, and the service was excellent, but we felt the prices were higher than average.

This was our sixth visit. The chef/owner consistently over delivers. Most everything is fresh but I've dropped them to four stars due to frozen pork for my fave katsu don.

My family loves Asian food and we have eaten at swanky restaurants in Miami, New York, San Francisco and Plenty of other large US cities. I will put Wasabi's food Side by side in competition with any Asian food in any metropolitan area of the US. We eat there at least every two weeks and have done so for the... More

The quality of the food and the service greatly exceeded our expectations. Extremely friendly with the owner chef personally greeting and seating you (when not cooking). Food tastes very clean and fresh as obviously only fresh ingredients are used. The standard Asian fare ( sushi rolls, soups etc.) all were fresh and natural tasting. Prices may initially seem a little... More

Wasabi is great! The sushi is excellent and always fresh. If you aren't in the mood for sushi, then try the Bibimbop(a sizzling rice dish with all kinds of wonderful flavors & textures) and the Bulgoki (tender, delicious marinated beef). Both of these traditional Korean dishes are awesome! I really would like to try the beef short ribs on our... More

We were craving sushi and went based on Trip Advisor reviews. We went for lunch and had the $1.50 nigiri sushi (tuna) and tuna roll which was under $4. Then we decided to 'splurge' and ordered two more rolls: Spicy Hamachi (Yellowtail) with scallion and Spicy Salmon with asparagus. They were both delicious! As if that wasn't enough, we ordered...
