My boyfriend and I ordered in with the Valet Gourmet food service (like food taxi service) that Asheville provides and we got Wasabi's sushi. Kind of expensive for the quality we received. I was not impressed at all. Just average.

The food was excellent. The service.....eh. For a sushi place in the mountains, I wasn;t sure what to expect but the food was actually really good! The rolls were good sized, and the spicy tuna and sashimi were really good. I would definitely hit this place up again the next time I'm craving sushi in Asheville. Now, the service. I... More

We like going here and eating at the Sushi Bar. Had a great meal as usual Saturday. The Sushi Chef who prepared our plates was a true artist. Of the may rolls we ordered didn't really like the wild mushroom roll but that's the risk we take when trying new things. Great service. Cramped dining room but I guess that's... More

For YEARS this was our fave sushi spot in Vl but after Friday night, no longer. Everything looked very pleasing but all lacked flavor. This time the service was also slow though the restaurant wasn't full. Over the past year our experiences have been more and more disappointing and now Zen Sushi, tho farther away and with less vibe has... More

Volcano roll baked before serving and it is delicious. My son and me each had a noodle bowl. Generous portions and excellent. Very professional server. Fair prices. If the is #115 rated in Asheville I need to try the other 114.

By far the best sushi I've tasted. Extremely generous portions, too. We were made very welcome and the staff were helpful and friendly. Loved the ginger, honey and lemon tea too.

This is a great Japanese food option in Asheville. The restaurant is very comfortable and the service is very good. Prices are on average. Food is simply one of the best Japanese I ever had. The only problem is that is not so easy to find a place to park.
