So we went for lunch on Wednesday, October 29, 2014. We're sushi lovers and we really enjoy Japanese food. We have access to so many great Japanese restaurants that serve awesome sushi here in the San Francisco Bay Area. We had really high hopes for Wasabi's. Let me tell you the food was just okay. We both got a chicken... More

They have a great menu and the food was great. It was a little high. They have sushi and other japanese meals. But the service was good.

I love sushi, super fresh food, healthy, looks good. I asked the chef for some dish that was not on the menu, no problem... Good sign. The sake was really good, not the stuff that they heat to hide the poor quality. I got to talk to the chef, he was truly happy that I enjoyed his work. I am... More

Find this place for good island / Asian fare. The prices are reasonable, the portions good and the quality excellent.

This is a SUSHI restaurant. Tempura is excellent, hibachi dishes good...but salad comes from a plastic bag and miso soup probably from a mix. If you want good sushi & tempura, go there, but it's nothing to write home about.

Being from Vancouver, Canada we are spoiled with supreme quality sushi at a very cheap price (you can get fresh sushi for $3.50) a roll - so I am a little biased here. The sushi here was good and fresh but it was just WAY too expensive. Rolls seemed to average $10 a roll; the cheapest rolls were like $8.50.... More

The chef is just amazing, sushi are fresh and very tasty! Not too expensive, but bear in mind that the food is not cheap in Hawaii... Loved it!
