This would be a one star review only our waitress was so nice. I ate in Wasabi on a busy Saturday night. I was looking forward to the visit, as it had been booked out the previous weekend.
Firstly I found the menu very restrictive, there was only one sake option (not that I am a sake connoisseur, but I would like some choice), there was one white wine by the glass and it was not possible to get any red wine by the glass. There was also no Japanese Whisky (or any other spirits!).
We ordered sushi rolls, which we could have no complaints about. All but one of the prawn dishes were tempura prawns (even the sushi rolls), so I opted for the regular tempura prawns. As happens in so many places there was more tempura than fish which made the dish far too greasy. However, the worst was yet to come. We ordered sea bass sashimi, which cost €8.90 for five of the smallest slices of fish you could imagine. Whilst eating the first piece of sashimi I bit into something hard - it was a bone. I was embarrassed as I discretely tried to remove the bone from my mouth, only for the fish to still be attached to it. Half of the serving came back out with the bone and onto my plate! I finished what I could of the dish and left very disappointed. I do like Japanese food and I will be travelling in to Dublin city centre in future as there are a number of good Japanese restaurants there, that are better quality and better value.
