We had an early dinner and the sushi was very fresh and tasted great. We had a large wine selection and good service

“Staff very nice, sushi average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Hibachi terrible. Waitress does not know how to make freen tea...not steeped at all. A little resentful of the $2 for the hot water.

Wasabi has great food! I highly recommend the red dragon roll, playboy roll, and the spicy tofu dinner.

“Consistently delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The variety of sushi is great and the presentation is sometimes over the top with LED lights - hilarious! Small space gets packed but it's well worth it!

“authentic Japanese sushi.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

good sushi can be hard to find here is the mountains of WNC. We had a good experience here, even though the waitness was American (!!!) Tasty sauces and items sculpted into fantastic arrangements. Not all was raw, but the raw salmon, tuna, yellowtail was yummy...just a little expensive!
