An unexpected treat.

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...:)

I was hesitant on going here but my son loves sushi. I thought ugh, sushi in the mountains???? I loved it! It is now in my top 2 sushi restaurants and would stop here every time I come to the area. Absolutely loved it!

I was on a business trip to our Asheville office and our service tech suggested that we eat here for lunch. I was not expecting this restaurant to be this nice and the food this good. First off the atmosphere was very laid back and relaxing. The hostess was very pleasant and polite and the servers were friendly and constantly... More

We are avid sushi eaters and this was the best sushi we have had in NC over the years. We love fresh, raw fish, but have not had great in NC until today. We live in Florida, but travel a lot and have a chance for great sushi such as Morimotos in CA and Miami etc. The head chef, Leo,... More

Went there for lunch and ordered the bento box. Perfect size, with tempura vegetables or shrimp. I also had the California roll. Can't go wrong with that one. The others in my table had sushi, different kinds and everyone was saying they were all awesome. Very fairly priced for what you get.

An ok sushi bar. Uni was delicious. The fish where super fresh. Recommend you sit in the bar. They have a sister to order by filling out a paper which was a pain. The waters was very nice though.

OK, you may not think that a Japanese restaurant and sushi bar in North Caroline would be all that good. I understand, however you'd be wrong.The food was excellent, the service was outstanding and the price was very reasonable.
