My daughter wanted to have some sushi so we just picked this place that was in the area to get quick sushi fix. It was Tuesday night so very quiet. We were able to sat at the counter right away. The chef in front of us had no personality, compared to the guy (kinda big Japanese guy) who was talkative... More

The ambiance here is rather average, but there is a nice terrace dining area from which you can watch the visitors to The Spectrum coming and going and otherwise wandering around. The service is routine, nothing especially unusual or noteworthy....competent but not great. The best reason for coming here is the menu, if you like sushi, this, in our opinion,... More

Although we have been to many fine Japanese restaurants in Orange County, we decided to give this place a try. The staff was friendly and the service good. We started with a California roll which was okay. We then ordered yellowtail sushi. It was obviously not fresh. I was also surprised that the cut included a streak of red meat.... More

The Sushi is delicious - the hand rolls, miso soup, salad, the special sauces or treasures, spicy tuna, hamachi, etc. The service is very good, friendly and attentive. Great for Lunch and Dinner. Love this place! We have been going there for 13 years and is always consistent with their food and service quality.

The sushi was delicious. A special roll with fried potatoes on the outside (Tornado) was a special treat. Really enjoyed the potatoes around that roll. The Catalina with soy paper wrap and seared albacore on top was refreshing - tasty! Parking was pretty easy to find for a Friday night. Not a lot of seating inside but we were fortunate... More

We went back on a Sunday for happy hour. There are some drink and sushi specials before 6:30. We ordered some from the Happy Hour list and added more. It was great.

Ate here with my date last night, and the sushi was great. We really wanted to go to Javier's and get a killer margarita, but there was an hour plus wait, so we settled for Wasa. The ONLY disappointment was that they only have beer, wine and saki. No mixed or well drinks. The prices are somewhat reasonable for OC... More

I came in during happy hour, so beers and regular rolls were great prices. Freshness was there and the 4 piece bluefin sashimi was very reasonably priced. The bluefin melted in my mouth fresh. I'll definitely come back here every time

I can't believe I've never written a review of this amazing sushi experience that I experience at least once a month, usually more. In all my travels across the globe, including Tokyo, I've never come upon a sushi place that I can say is better than Wasa. Not only is the sushi and entrees always excellent, but the service team...
