Location and contact

We are very fortunate to have had a long standing business in the Branson Missouri area. We were originally called Wasabi’s but changed that name a few years ago. You can still find info about both online but we are very happy to have had the same owner, Billy Whang as chief proprietor and head sushi chef. Most everyday you can find Billy doing what he loves at his sushi station at Wakyoto’s.Lunch and Dinner services are everyday (closed select Mondays throughout the winter months). But this restaurant serves both the tourism client and the local residents so business is always steady with lots of great fresh fish and lunch and dinner items.Wakyoto is a “Local” spot and many of the residents

A dark dank place. The waitress wouldn't let us see the picture sushi menu. The food wasn't awful, but way overpriced for what you get. after a $200 meal, you shouldn't leave hungry.

As someone who is not from Branson, this review is non biased! This was the best sushi and food we have eaten in a long time. The food is very beautiful and delicious. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the staff is amazing! Don’t judge...More

We eat here almost every time we are in Branson. The egg rolls are perfectly cooked and the sushi is always delicious and so fresh! Highly recommend the Red Bull roll-it’s one of our favorites!
