“love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Because we are a family of 4, coming here regularly is not really an option for us. the price is a little much for a family of four. but we do like to make this our birthday or special occasion place. You have an option here to eat in the dining room and order from the menu or you can sit in the room where the chef comes out and makes the food at your table.. this is where we always eat. you are taken to a table where there is a grill and the bar of seats goes around one half of the grill. they sit guests at the table until the table is full (so you will be sitting with strangers) once the table is full, yolur orders are taken and the chef comes out with your raw food. he then does this little show with the veggies, a little flame, egg tossing, etc. very entertaining and the food is great. we love it!

“Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We love going to Wasabi. The food is very good, prices reasonable, and it is so much fun to watch them prepare the food. They go out of their way to entertain children.

“Delicious place to celebrate with a group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

For my grandson's graduation from high school, friends and family gathered at Wasabi in Knoxville, and were treated to a wonderfullly and artistically prepared feast. The quality of the food was challenged only by the amount of food....lots of take-home boxes! This is a place I would recommend for any group.

“It was ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I would go again. Its wasn't anything to brag about. Shrimp was good. I like the interaction with the chef at the hibachi table. Steak was very thing and small. When he put it on the grill I thought it was for 1 person but it was for 2.

“Dinner with friend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

With guests visiting, I asked friends where we should go to dinner...and this place was highly recommended (when we visit them, we always go out to eat at a Sushi bar). Rather typical Japanese steakhouse, with all the show and neat stuff. Sushi was ok at best (however this is a long way from the ocean) and the prepared food was way over salted. Not bad experience, but at the time was looking for great.
