“Sushi business lunch”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

I've been here several times - most recently for a business lunch. More often, in the past, I've met my sister here for lunch.

We've always been happy with the service and quality of the sushi. Sushi is excellent! Very fresh and well prepared. The "Box lunch" is very nice and priced right.

We've never seen anything near the negative "tip" experience that was posted below

“Great lunch deals for Japanese sushi, tempura”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

Looking for a tasty and reasonable Japanese lunch? Wasabi is our weekend go-to lunch spot. The box lunches – such as the sushi or shrimp tempura – include a bowl of miso soup, a small salad, California rolls, and green tea for about $10 per person.

Don't let the exterior – next door to a nail salon – keep you away. Inside, Wasabi is comfy and clean. The staff is very attentive, too.

“Wasabi is consistently good”
Reviewed May 18, 2011

I have been going to Wasabi for years and service there has always been attentive and good. Food is great. I recommend rolls - even basic rolls have generous amount of fish in them, so do not need to go with special rolls. Appetizers are smaller portions and I feel are overpriced.

“Hidden Gem with Excellent Sushi”
Reviewed September 12, 2010

We were delighted to find Wasabi while visiting UNH. The service was excellent and friendly, and the sushi delicious. We enjoyed great appetizers; gyoza, salmon and crab cakes, and seaweed salad. The quality of the seafood was on par with some of the most high end sushi restaurants in NYC and San Fransisco that I've experienced. Horse mackerel (Aji) was amazing, as was Red Dragon roll, Crispy Tuna and everything else we tried. Will definitely be back!

“Consistently wonderful food”
Reviewed September 25, 2009

Wasabi has some of the freshest, most delicious Japanese cuisine in the area (upper Fairfield/Lower New Haven counties.) I've been going there for about 3 years, ever since the New York Times gave them three stars. The place is not particularly fancy (it probably was an old Chinese-American restaurant at one point - long & narrow, with red leather booths) & it's in a strip mall - but the food is first-rate. Super-fresh fish, lots of interesting choices on the menu, lovely desserts, and warm and friendly staff. We have never been disappointed. It's not cheap (as one other reviewer has pointed out) but neither is it overly expensive, and for this quality it's worth it. They also have fresh, real, wasabi (a small surcharge for a large portion) which is something no one else seems to have anymore. Lots of choices for non-sushi lovers too. Go there, sit back and relax, and have a delicious meal.
