We've eaten here before and each time it's been great. We love having the experience of watching our food prepared and know it's fresh and hot.

We have frequently ate here over the years and have been in love. It's been our favorite place in Joplin. The food is outstanding, but the service has been worse and worse the last three times my wife and I have chose to eat here....More

My wife and I most often have lunch at the bar of any restaurant as the service is more consistent and most bartenders are fun to talk with. Wasab was a big exception. We asked the bartender for club soda rather than water. She replied,...More

Celebrated a birthday here for my lovely wife. She enjoys going here for lunch, dinner, and to meet the girls. We have visited for many years. Quick service, good food, entertaining watching the chef cook the meal. Can have a cocktail or bar service. Good...More

This is one of my friend's favorite restaurants - even though she is vegetarian and there is little on the menu she eats! She loves the Avocado rolls and today she enjoyed those as well as the Vegetable Roll that had cucumber and Japanese pickle!...More

The service was, OK. The food was OK. Not the worst Japanese/Hibachi food I've ever had in the U.S., but by no means near the best for Sushi in Joplin. The prices were excessive for what we had. I'm not saying we won't go back...More

I'm vegan and they have vegan options, which is great. Adamame for appetizer was delicious! The only flaw was that rolls themselves were quite huge and it was difficult to put them in the mouth. So, I wouldn't recommend this place for the first date.
