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.

Had lunch at Wasabi (only open certain days for lunch so please check)... it is worth going to lunch as it is over the Noosa River. We caught the little ferry which picks you up from the back of the Sheraton and it is the first drop off right outside Wasabi. The menu is amazing and the knowledge of the staff first rate! There is a degustation menu if you wish or a la carte - which is what we went for. The sashimi was delicious and fresh and changes daily - ours was trout, bream, kingfish, tuna and oysters. Ask for the freshly grated wasabi (from Tasmania) it is so worth the money for the proper true taste of wasabi (not the tube of horseradish coloured green). We followed this with wonderful wagyu gyoza, boned and stuffed spatchcock and a fish and prawn dish with a corn broth - all excellent, all served with wonderful herbs and vegetables mostly from their farm in the hinterland. If we had been staying longer I definitely would have gone to Wasabi again. Please go - it is brilliant!

Having dined here occasionally in the past we decided to have a celebration dinner here again. It is true dining and not simply eating. The food quality is impeccable and is consistently great. The service is outstanding, wait staff who are professional rather than those who work for a bit of part time cash, they actually know what they are serving. The water side location is also unbeatable. Cant fault any aspect of this restaurant and as owners of a restaurant ourselves this is the standard we aspire to. Thanks for a memorable gastronomic experience and we will be back again.

What a place. Our experience from phone booking to leaving was excellent. The food was stunning. We were a party of eight - three adults and five kids. The children were treated respectfully and they enjoyed the teriyaki spatchcock immensely along with miso and gyoza. As for us adults everything was bloody good.

Wasabi provided one of the best dining experiences of our lives. The quality, freshness and flavour of the food was outstanding. Notable, was the opportunity to try fresh wasabi- grated at the table by our waitress. The outlook from our table was stunning. A magnificent sunset across the Noosa River. The service-impeccable!! Our waitress was not only knowledgeable, but eloquent and attentive. Most definitely the best waitress we have ever had in our 25 years of dining together.
