Good value!!

Very good food and service at a very reasonable price. I have had better Japanese food, and I've had cheaper but wasabi is excellent value for money - quality/price. I would go back. :-)

Great casual atmosphere with no frills. This place is not very big so it feels like a casual cafe dining experience - definitely not fancy or fine dining. Food is ok but prices not the cheapest.

This is a great little restaurant, not flash but good food with an extensive Japanese menu.

The food is good with plenty of variety, a lot more to offer than most... More
