Exceptional dining experience, have eaten here 6 times now and it never fails to deliver. The Freshest most vibrant food in Noosa and their is always a taste twist. The specials are a delight and always changing.

Spend money on experiences not things. We had a lovely dining experience. Our booking was honoured purely through phone messages. We were seated immediately. The wait staff were sweet and engaging without being suffocating. They knew the menu well. The Sommelier was knowledgeable and provided interesting back stories to the matched wines. The food was delicious and the fresh produce... More

We have experienced several Japanese restaurants around Australia and the world and were very excited to visit Wasabi after hearing and reading good reviews. We must have been there on a bad night because we found the food albeit okay, didn't have the wow factor we have experienced in other restaurants. We didn't expect big portions but what we received... More

Sitting alongside the Noosa river watching the world go buy as the attentive wait staff serve simply sublime food. We choose the degustation menu and every course of the seven was a delight to the tastebuds. Compared to a well known restaurant right next door Wasabi wins hands down for ambience, staff professionalism and food. The wine list was interesting... More

Had the 7 course degustation menu with matching wines. It was mind blowingly good. One of the best meals I've had in a long time. Deserving of many more awards. We loved loved loved it!

Wasabi is located next to Ricky's (good food, service and view) alongside the water and obviously serves Japanese style food - which attaches as much attention to presentation as it does to taste- invariably at the expense of quantity. Three courses for $80 was advertised but dessert comes extra so the final bill with drinks was easily the most expensive... More

Forget what others say, we dined here for an anniversary dinner and the food and service were fantastic. You must remember Japanese food is all about the flavour and the ingredients do the talking. Yes don't expect piled high plates but flavoursome delicate food. My husband and I both chose the three course option so in affect we got 6... More

Greeting at door was very underwhelming most unlike the normal for a Japanese restaurant. Yes we have been to Japan. There the disappointment ended. The food was delicious - we ordered from the a la carte menu as we are generally not in favour of set menus. Among the dishes we had: Yukke, Negimen, Tempura, Tori and Soyaendo. All wonderful....

We placed our order for my family with 2 young children. The kids and I didn't like much on the menu so our order wasn't large. We were told that the kids are expected to order from the menu as well and we should have 2 entrees and a main each - what a nerve. There was plenty of unnecessary... More

The location of Wasabi is stunning overlooking Noosa River. However we did have some issues regarding this restaurant. We booked days ahead to avoid any disappointment & were told we had a 8pm sitting. On arrival we were ushered to the bar as our table evidently wasn't ready. We waited for at least 30 minutes. We noticed other patrons were... More

Wasabi restaurant & bar, overhanging the scenic Noosa River, opposite the Noosa Recreation Reserve, is the brainchild of owner and Young Restaurateur of the Year Award recipient Danielle Gjestland. The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Voted Queensland's #1 regional restaurant for the 2015 Good Food Guide, awarded two chefs hats, listed in Gourmet Travellers top 100 restaurants, and voted Queensland's Hottest Restaurant in the Australians Hot 50 List, Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.
