“So-So Sushi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

One of the better stops for food on City Walk but nothing to write home about. There's much better sushi available down the road on Ventura, but it's acceptable, if overpriced.

“Not so great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

We went to this restaurant just for the Shabu Shabu, we ordered it and they told us something was wrong with the kitchen so they were not serving it. Very Disappointing, we should have left. My mom ordered the teriyaki combo beef and pork and it was very bland. The tempura was pretty good. The sushi rolls we had were ok, but not the best I have had.

“Good sushi but not many choices!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

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.

“Good food and great service !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

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.
