Came here because of TA reviews. It lived up to the reviews and more! Fresh sushi and great service. Parking is crazy in Asheville but the walk is worth it. Highly recommended.

The restaurant was full and we saw there was an available table so we decided to try their vegetarian sushi. The waitress told us about their vegetarian roll that is not on the menu. It contains avacado, cucumber, oshinki, carrot, and yamagobo. We also ordered the delicious wild mushroom with cream cheese, and potatoe rolls. A green house salad with... More

While visiting our friend in Asheville, this is one of the first restaurants she directed us to on this visit. Stopped here for lunch as we were taking the trolley for the hop on/hop off tour of the city. The sushi was excellent, many choices and beautiful presentations. My husband tried one of the noodle bowls and it was also... More

When we arrived there was a couple rushing out and the whole thing seems odd. Later we found out that the couple had slipped on the bill. We felt so sorry for the server, however she remained professional throughout our dining experience. The sushi here is top notch and the staff super friendly. We have been on the lookout for...

There are many sushi places in downtown Asheville and for some reasons we stop at this one. It was good choice. The sushi and salads were a good quality. Service was good.

I go to Wasabi often. They have good sushi. But today I got the hibachi with chicken and shrimp. All were overcooked. Not wirth it. I prefer Champa.

Go with an empty belly cause the portion sizes are HUGE. I had the Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura and it was awesome!!! I will definitely add Wasabi to my list of must eat places when in the area!

We came here for an afternoon snack. We ordered the spider and spicy tuna rolls. Both were excellent with lots of flavor. The service was decent but could be a bit more attentive.

This is the place to eat Sushi in Asheville! Joann, the manager ended up helping serve because they were short staffed and did a phenomenal job. She was pleasant fast and accommodating. Always smiling, she recommended some great dishes including a lobster roll w mango, tuna and avocado wrapped in rice paper. Great experience and will be our norm place... More

Although Coconut Shrimp is on the appetizer list, it is enough for a main course! The service is great, it is a small place on Broadway (continuation of Biltmore Avenue) in the heart of downtown Asheville . . . worth a trip, excellent sushi and the local cannot be beat . . . in the heart of town!
