Ordered shrimp /scallops for two. Way too much food. Served soup and salad prior to main course. Also an egg roll with dipping sauce. Had to take half of our food home. Ordered Hawaiian roll. Very good! Will be back!

Their sushi is large. Much larger than anywhere else in town.. It is 50% off everyday. I don't know why they just don't put the 50% off price on the menu. They have many types of sushi such as deep fried, tempura , and eel, or octopus. The meal portions are huge for the price. We have always brought home... More

Stopped by on my way home from work and picked up two rolls to-go! The Texas Roll and the Nashville Roll - both were excellent and hit the spot. The entire staff was warm and welcoming. They were very busy yet my order was processed quickly.

My daughter and I were looking for a quick place to have lunch on a shopping trip to Owensboro, but didn't want fast food. After consulting trip advisor, we decided to hit up Wasabi.....and I'm super happy we did! The place is busy and crowded, but we were seated immediately and our awesome waitress arrived right away to bring our... More

We have been to each location a few times and the food is good. My Fiance enjoys numerous of the sushi rolls they have to offer. I normally eat Hibachi and they do give you a great amount of food with both soup and salad.

The food is the best combination of cheap price, taste, and atmosphere of all of the Japanese eateries in Owensboro. The hibachi is not cooked in front of you, but in return you get cheaper costs. The sushi is amazing and legitimately half of the cost of what you'd pay at other sushi joints.

This is Japanese fast food. Very low quality. Much better options for Hibachi and sushi in town. Have known several to become ill after eating the sushi.

Good food at a reasonable price. Sometimes I just want Japanese food without all the cooking in front of me, and sitting with other people like at Shogun. This place delivers.

Hands down, Wasabi has the best sushi in Owensboro. It's fresh, there's a nice variety of it, and it's 50% off every day. The servers are friendly and are great when it comes to recommending new dishes that you've never had. In addition, they do check on you but it's not to the point of being intrusive. The prices cannot... More

The service is very good. The food is very good. All of us were pleased and I had enough to take home for another meal. The fried rice itself is a huge meal. This is a good restaurant and prices are reasonable.
