About 2 years ago I had been here for the 9 course degustation and was disappointed by the lack of variety of flavour. This time we had the 3 courses for $80 and my wife and I deliberately ordered 6 different courses to try out most of the menu and we were delighted with the result. A truly lovely evening.... More

I had high expectations of this place after reading some good reviews, but unfortunately was let down in a big way. The location and atmosphere are great - first impressions were that we were in for a treat. We decided to splash out and get the 9 course set menu. There was a wide range of foods that came out,...

Expensive, that's the only cons. This is one of the best restaurant I've ever been, great food, lots of fantastic wine and elegant place.

An exquisite location by the Noosa River, this is best enjoyed at lunch so you can fully appreciate the views and panorama. Definitely a quality and innovative food style but not necessarily as enjoyable as the more "basic" food next door at Ricks or Rocksalt. It is expensive and many complain about the relatively small portions.

It has taken me a while to get around to dining at Wasabi. I visited with a backdrop of strong reviews from high-brow foodies. To have a reputation as the best restaurant in the Noosa Shire is something to be proud of, especially given the quality of restaurants that have come, conquered and many gone in Noosa. Having been overseas... More

Absolutely beautiful restaurant - food, service, fabulous views. We chose to eat at lunch to get the full Noosa water views, and the $80 3 Course option. All meals were well thought out, amazing in taste, and gorgeously presented. Well worth a visit.

We booked into Wasabi after seeing its good reviews and because we love Japanese cuisine. Our waiter was helpful and we did the 3 courses for $80 each. The food was good, well seasoned and nicely served with tradition pauses in between. We go t talking with the couple next to us, who were extremely pleased with their selections. We... More

My husband and I spent a delightful three hours savouring every morsel. While the expertly prepared food was obviously our main focus, it was easy to be distracted by the thoroughly enjoyable river side location on a spectacular Noosa day. Thanks Wasabi and thank you Noosa!

Description
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.
