We ate at Wasabi after finishing a day at Unuversal. We enjoyed the outdoor dining and people-watching. We only ordered sushi and were surprised by the limited choices. The service was good but a little slow. The sushi was good but nothing spectacular. However, it was great to have something other than theme park food.

We were also afraid that this restaurant is a very tourist restaurant as it is located at Universal Citywalk. But the food was really good and service was very friendly. We had different rolls and chicken and beef teriyaki. Only the shrimp tempura was only average. The value for money was okay.

I would recommend the restaurant if you want to eat something after an exhausting day in the Universal Studios. But there are definitely better options in L.A.

I was looking sushi restaurants around Hollywood and I decided to give them a shot, since is located in Citywalk I was really afraid to eat there, thinking..."tourist restaurant"! I can tell you, we had three different rolls, great price and tasty rools, give them a shot for a casual lunch or dinner, you won't be dissapointed.

I work near Wasabi's other two locations on Wilshire Boulevard and buy sushi from there for lunch frequently, since it's great food at a great price, and everyone is so friendly. No wonder the Universal City Walk location was empty when we walked in on what was clearly a busy Sunday for City Walk. The food is tasteless and mediocre and the prices double that of their other locations. For example, the usually delicious rainbow roll was sadly lacking the selection of seafood used at Wilshire South. What was included was dry and had no flavor. The tempura dishes were greasy and the teriyaki salmon was possibly cooked from frozen. The staff could have cared less and were clearly irritated to have to serve the five of us.
