the greasiest ramen I have ever had. the noodles were good. the broth however was not. I have not had a flavourless oily ramen since getting low end food in Japan. would not repeat. cute little location right downtown. server was nice and polite and good at her job but the food would not entice me to return.

Great Restaurant with excellent staff and ownership! They always introduce new Ramen recipes and keep the favourites. The Izakaya is great too!

Very salty soup, We sent the soup back but they did nothing. They still charged for the poor food we could not eat on the bill. That is unheard of in the restaurant industry unless they don't care or are nearly broke. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Stay away.

A few friends raved about this place- so we tried it last time in town. A cute non assuming place but it was packed when we went in. Everyone seemed happy and full when leaving. We tried three Ramen soup dishes, the gyoza and the chili mayo prawns I think. Each dish was hot, fresh, flavourful and filling. I love... More

This is a great place from location to food, I can't say enough. My hubby and I frequent this spot whenever we desire well made fresh sushi rolls and a splash of Sake - I recommend the higher end bottle they have still VERY affordable. I love all of their rolls and have recently tried and fell in love with... More

This is was first visit to Wasabi and it certainly will not be my last! We arrived without reservations for a table of 3, quickly seated and warmly welcomed. The service was fast and the presentation was amazing. Homemade Ramen noodles definitely had a wonderful taste. I ordered the Spicy Wonton Ramen and it was hands down the best Ramen... More

Wasabi is casual dinning for everyone. And lunch, too. Price is very reasonable, but taste is very satisfied. I recommend every one. Especially Ramen is the best.

Got through on the phone on my second try to make a reservation for 8PM. We ordered their calamari, gyoza, and chicken karaage to start, and then I had the ebi (shrimp) ramen special. Everything was delicious, not too greasy, and served piping hot, except for the green tea. The ramen noodles and shrimp broth were excellent!
