“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Everything we ordered was amazing. Honey shrimp, tuna roll and the shrimp tempura roll are all a must. I'm glad we went. Fast and friendly service. I will definitely return when I come back to the fabulous city of New Orleans.

“Wonderful Food Hidden in the Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

When my family and I come to New Orleans, we stay with friends in the Quarter who reside in close proximity to Wasabi. We ALWAYS make a point to stop in one night here during our trip. Tonight was no different. Peter was our server and though he was the only one in the dining area, he was able to keep up with our requests. We had a variety of Sushi, drinks, and Teryaki chicken. The Sushi was wonderful, and even though I am not a fan of Sushi, I found some that I enjoyed - and would get again! We also had the Jalapeno Poppers which were delicious, though a little spicy (sadly) for our East Coast pallets. The soup was wonderful that preceded our Teryaki Chicken. The chicken was served with rice and salad. The salad was fresh, and I paired it with the Teryaki sauce already on the plate instead of the accompanying dressing. The rice was delicious and would have been great as just a meal itself. The plate was stacked high with Teryaki Chicken which made for a wonderful meal, but also a delicious lunch and dinner for tomorrow! I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting New Orleans looking for a little local place to enjoy a nice relaxing meal.

“Excellent sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Sushi was outstanding. Assassin roll was delicious. Was a pleasant atmosphere. Do not be in a hurry, but out is definitely worth the wait.

“Yummy yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Wasabi is a local's favorite!! The sushi is always fresh. The service exceptional- fast and efficient. I love their special rolls and seaweed salad. Honey wasabi shrimp appetizer is excellent! Their saki- mmmm- warm or cool, different flavors. It's a fantastic, New Orleans staple.
