This is by far the best shashimi that I had in UAE. Although a bit pricey, the freshness of the food is worth paying for. Reservation is require especially over weekend. If you are driving, finding a car park lot will be a bit troublesome though.

Being big sushi and Japanese cuisine lover, I was pretty excited when I heard many high recommendations for Wasabi. So I went and I was trying hard to find out what people really enjoy about this place.

Pros:
- nice Japanese seating style and decorations
- friendly waitress

Cons:
- miso soup of almost watery consistency missing its flavor
- fish quality so so
- sushi rice was over-boiled
- in one of the salmon rolls I found a piece of bone (that never happened to me before in any sushi restaurant all over the world!!!)
- poor vegetarian choices and sadly limited desert option

I left with empty wallet for very average to poor quality of food which has very far to the real Japanese.

The only Japanese restaurant in Abu Dhabi that you can see Japanese expats dining. Authentic and great service. The only problem here is the parking and the constructions here and there, but that wll not put us off from having dinner here. Its a must should you be craving for Japanese meal! :)

Okay, the hotel that Wasabi is in looks like it hasn't been renovated in 30 years, and I wonder who stays there, but this little restaurant is great. Traditional Japanese fare made by poeple who know what they're doing, great selection of sake, and the set lunches are a bargain. Extensive library of Manga comics too...some in English.
