“Five star dining at four star prices - yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

This was my first experience dining in Palm Springs and everyone here was very friendly. I had a tempura bento box with California roll, salad, miso soup and rice. It was prepared and presented very nicely, and tasted very good. Best of all was that it was less expensive than I thought it would be! Definitely a go-to place while in Palm Springs.

The food was very good. The proposed menu is satisfactory and offering interesting options. The staff and service were good as well. The place is located near the downtown area.

“Excellent Bento Box”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Stopped for lunch and really enjoyed the experience. The bento boxes were reasonable in price for quality of food. Portions are a little small (maybe more vegetables with the meat?) but the taste and presentation made up for it. The wait staff were attentive and the decor was really pleasant .

“Great Japanese food !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

A little south of downtown, but still close to everything Wasabi was a good find. I had a very hearty bento box style dinner and miso soup, trying tempura, teriyaki, sushi & sashimi. Food was great quality and they were reasonably busy but service was still quick. I'd not usually try seafood this far from the sea however the great reviews on TA led me to a great meal and a pleasant night out.

“Freshest most delicious sushi.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I love dining here and do so whenever I am in the area. I have gone to a lot of sushi places and this is one of the best places yet. I'm from the San Bernardino area and there are tons of sushi places out here but they don't compare to Wasabi; since there are a lot of sushi restaurants near San Bernardino, I feel that quality or customer service isn't a priority but competition is. At Wasabi, quality and genuineness definitely comes first. The sushi is the freshest I have had and the food overall is delicious. I really like the atmosphere and love that they have been around for as long as they have. The owners, Mimi and Hiro love their business and are very friendly to their customers; I have gotten to know them and they are amazing. If you're ever in the area, you should definitely stop in!
