“If you love, or even like sushi do not miss this one.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We decided to visit Wazaaabi based on tripadvisor reviews. We have had sushi in the hotel zone and decided to venture off the strip. We took the bus to Bonampak and got a taxi to Plaza Peninsula. We had the resort make reservations for us and needless to say they had to look up the restaurant.

We arrived to find our table waiting with our name printed on it. Nice touch. From the moment we sat down the service was impeccable. Eric the owner came over and told us about the drinks, then the appetizers, then the entrees. He gave us a complementary order of fried green beans with a sauce which was really good. He also put together a platter with three different rolls which he recommended. We especially loved the Wazaaabi roll and the mango roll. He recommended a noodle dish for my husband and a salad with tuna and avocado. We loved it all. The tuna and salmon was fresh and the pairing of ingredients was outstanding. The service by the waiters was excellent. We finished our meal and waited to order the fried oreo we had read about. We waited for a few minutes then out came the waiter with a complementary order of fried oreo. We couldn't believe it. We had good food, good ambiance at a good price.
Eric gave us tips for our trip to Playa and when we thought he was calling us a taxi the waiter called us outside to a car with Eduardo. He took us to the bus stop so we did not need a cab. Thank you Eduardo and thanks for everything Eric. We will certainly be back.

“Great Japanese with a twist!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Wazaaabi is a great spot for good quality Japanese food with an interesting fusion twist. The sushi was delicious and the service impeccable. We have been there on a busy Friday night and felt like special guests even if the restaurant was full. Highly recommended if you need a break from tortillas while in Cancun!

“Well worth the trip!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

While being out of the hotel area it is well and truly worth the trip to Wazaaabi's for the best Japanese we've had on our travels and a fantastic overall experience! We ordered the Wazaaabi Love for 2 platter, the salmon and tuna was so fresh we cleaned it up in no time, and it was a perfect size for two. The staff were brilliant, particularly Eric who went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed our experience. Highly recommended!

“Wowzaaabi!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This place was great and they were very accommodating to our group of 8. The menu was extensive and even offered shared meals to get a better sampling of their wide variety of rolls. The fish was excellent and the drinks were fairly priced compared to resorts and their affiliates. They even offered a martini special for the ladies. The service was fantastic, venue great and to cap it all off there was even a very talented female vocalist performing with a drummer. Definitely worth the short cab ride from anywhere in Cancun.
