Description: Wasabi restaurant & bar, overhanging the scenic Noosa River, opposite the Noosa Recreation Reserve, is the brainchild of owner and Young Restaurateur of the Year Award recipient Danielle Gjestland. The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Voted Queensland's #1 regional restaurant for the 2015 Good Food Guide, awarded two chefs hats, listed in Gourmet Travellers top 100 restaurants, and voted Queensland's Hottest Restaurant in the Australians Hot 50 List, Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We dined at Wasabi recently, and it exceeded our expectations. We shared the 7 course Wakeru tasting menu, and it was great decision. Excellent fresh seafood, and the Hiramasa Ponzu was divine. Great location and a leisurely 3 hour dinner over the Noosa river was worthy of our celebratory occasion. Service was excellent and unobtrusive. We will be back.

“Impressive”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

It was my son's 18th birthday and the 5 of us went to Wasabi for lunch for the first time. We ordered their 9 course meal. Although it took us 3 hours to finish it (we did hurry the dish towards the end of the meal), it was extremely enjoyable. The restaurant is right on the Noosa River with 180 degrees water view. The ambiance & modern luxury environment made it appetizing already. The list of wine including sake is amazing. All the 9 courses was thoughtfully and artistically prepared and of course very tasty. My family go to Japan every year and I could say this restaurant is of very high standard and everything was delightful.

“Exquisite Japanese: our favourite high end Noosa meal”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Had our second dinner with friends here this weekend and loved it agin: wasabi has a beautiful atmosphere both during the day when the river view is highlighted and at night when the lovely, softly lit room and decor is emphasised. Staff are very knowledgable and attentive and the food is both tasty and gorgeously presented. My firm favourite is the teriyaki spatchcock and their gyoza, always a benchmark for us with Japanese, do not disappoint. Although very much a ecial,occasion experience, we'll find the occasion to return.

“Impressive”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

My wife & I dined at Wasabi on a wet Sunday night, away from a window so can't comment on the view. The restaurant was fairly busy, despite us arriving early and the punters were still arriving when we left. The wait staff were friendly, describing the menu and serving sizes where necessary. After ordering we were offered a free tasting before the entrees and mains were served. The dinner progressed at 'normal' pace - we weren't left wondering and the servings were ideal. A little expensive but worth it for a special occasion. Next time in Noosa we'll return (for lunch, maybe).

“Plate licking good”
Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

The chefs choice 7 plate tasting was amazing...with matched wines. Had us both asking if it was wrong to lick the plate. Impeccable service with understated décor and attention to detail. This is a truly magnificent experience and clearly the accolades are well deserved.
