Was surprised that they served ramen. It was pretty good. They only have one kind which was ok. We were satisfied with the shrimp tempura, sashimi and chicken teriyaki that we ordered. Servers were attentive. They had outdoor seating which was good at night as the park closes. One can people watch while enjoying the food. It was also affordable... More

This is the only sushi place on the City Walk and the food is good considering it's in a theme park. Wait time's can be long, especially at peak hours and peak season because the park is bustling! Cool yourself off with some decent sushi, attentive and polite service and you won't be disappointed.

Gracious service and lovely sushi rolls in a nice atmosphere. Had it been warmer we would have dined outdoors. Prompt service and friendly.

We had lunch and dinner here during our trip. We stayed at the Universal Hilton, so it was more than convenient to take the shuttle over to the city walk and grab a bite to eat. Wasabi, was surprising good. We ordered the sashimi platter and tonkatsu for lunch. There was nothing left on the plates. It was very tasty.... More

Located at the citywalk at Universal Studio, wasabi service fresh sashimi and sushi, plus other Japanese Food to satisfy your palette. I specially enjoyed the wagyu steak, Hamachi and Hotate sashimi which was so fresh. Service was great. Although the setting is not that formal, but Japanese.Highly recommended.

This place has lots of fish at the counter as you walk in and the menu is full of very nice combinations. Lots of spicy options too for the adventurists. Service is efficient and quick. Would recommend stopping by.

After seeing Star Wars at the AMC IMAX, we took our son and daughter-in-law to Wasabi for her birthday dinner. The food seemed fresh, but the service was cold and hurried. When the bill was delivered, it was just plunked down at the table with no follow up as how the meal was. Uneventful meal. Just average.

After a day at the park (Universal Studios), we were checking out CityWalk for a place to eat. It was quite chilly that night, and we were moving past Wasabi, when one of the employees offered up their menu for a glance. We're kind of glad that she did her job in drumming up business, because the atmosphere and food... More

The service was friendly and the ambiance nice, but the menu is very generic. I think that City Walk needs another Japanese place. I friendly competition will be nice. I will probably not go back.
