Wasabiya is the only Japanese restaurant in town that does Japanese food correctly. My dad and I both grew up in Japan and agreed that it was comparable to what you would get in Tokyo. The tempura was deep fried properly and the noodle broth was light and savoury. The sushi was properly prepared and served. Felt like home.

The food is excellent. Ordered for pick up at 6:30. Told it would be ready at 8. Then got there at 8 (which is around closing) and started making it when we got there. Small restaurant so not sure why they couldn't accommodate for an earlier time.

Every time we're in town we go here. Spicy grilled tuna done right, every time! Rolls, tempera, saki, everything the way it should be. Make a reservation though or you could disappointed. They do a lot of takeout too!

The best place for sushi in Campbell River. Spicy grilled tuna is excellent. Volcano and dynamite rolls are personal favourites but never feel disappointed with anything I order.

Wasabyia has great fresh sushi. Their smoked salmon salad roll & spicy grilled tuna are amazing. The best I've ever had. The decor is not the greatest & the restaurant is small, so you need a reservation. Good service.

Wasabiya provides an excellent variety of sushi that is suitable for all tastes - even those who don't prefer sushi. Our favourite restaurant in Campbell River.

Coming from Alberta, we don't have the freshest seafood and this is the first sushi restaurant we have ever been too in BC, and it did not disappoint! Can't wait to get back to the island to have it again!

What a great find! It. It was hopping busy, so we sat at the sushi bar because the restaurant was full. I had the green salad which had a fantastic ginger dressing and the kamikaze roll. I was stuffed afterwards. My husband had Ramen noodle soup and crispy oyster. He ate it all! I had never been charged for tea... More
