Great sushi!

Everything we ate was delicious. Great atmosphere. Wish there was a larger selection of sushi rolls but what we got was very good. Shrimp gyoza was the best I've ever had.

On our trip to Asheville we tried this place twice!! We ordered the red dragon sushi roll and the shrimp and rib eye hibachi. Everything was good our second trip we ordered the same thing! Service is friendly ..house wine is great and we were in and out with no wait time. The portions are huge, so we shared everything... More

We went for lunch and the food was beyond great! The lunch specials we really reasonably priced and the portions were generous. I would recommend the coconut scallops lunch box. Stop by for lunch you won't be disappointed!

We've been coming to Wasabi for suchi and sashimi for years. Returning recently, we were re-confirmed in our estimation of the best sushi in town. Fresh, delicious and presented beautifully. Not too expensive for sushi (or Asheville) and great service to boot.

We did not expect good sushi in Asheville but tried this place several years ago. We were pleasantly surprised and have returned here many times. The sushi is fresh and there are plenty of options on the menu. There are no empty tables by 8 pm so make a reservation.

It's a tiny restaurant, but the food is amazing and the service is always good. Don't say it lightly when I say it's consistently the best sushi in Asheville.

My wife and I were in Asheville for a few days and happened upon this place while out walking around. What a surprise it was! Terrific, fresh, tasty sushi. Wonderful service. Relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again.

In true Asheville Style, Wasabi measures up: food quality, quantity, Service & location. The preceding reviews do it justice, no need for much more. Sushi Special lunch, Salmon Teriyaki Bento Box, 2 side salads, 2 small Sake bottles, Green Tea Ice Cream, Tax & decent Tip: $43, good stuff! Better yet, immediately across the street from from the good wife's... More

Love this place!! My favorite is the Red Dragon Roll and that ginger, lemon, honey tea!. It's especially fun when several people are eating sushi and they bring out the big sushi boat...:)
