What really sets this restaurant apart from the others is the food followed by the service! From the outside Wasabi's does not look like much. It is located in a small strip mall and the interior decor is okay. However the quality, freshness and presentation of the food is on a par with far more expensive restaurants.

I was first introduced to this establishment by a friend who is an owner / chef in one of the most popular Japanese restaurants in New Haven County. Everything he told me about the establishment was very good and I personally found to be true.

The owner / chef of Wasabi's can be found there every day. It is really a treat to watch him prepare the meals behind the sushi bar. A real testament to his skill and focus on achieving perfection in the presentation of the food.

The staff is always friendly and polite. They provide a personal service by remembering what you like and making suggestions if you are feeling a little adventurous.

In my opinion Wasabi's represents the best value in Japanese cuisine in the Greater Milford area.

Tips: Literally cannot beat the lunch time specials. Also if you live locally coupons can be found in a few of the circulars. The deserts are also very good.

We were originally reluctant to try this place as from the outside the place was unimpressive at best. However, after our first bite of the tuna tartare appetizer, we were hooked!

The sushi is always fresh and the special rolls are creative and full of interesting flavor combinations. The Godzilla Roll and the Spicy Scallop Roll have to be my two favorites. The rock shrimp tempura appetizer is simply divine. The staff is friendly and attentive, the decor could certainly use an update (dimming the lights would help) but honestly, the food is so good you quickly forget. Don't let appearances fool you...this may be the best sushi in CT. Wish they delivered!!!

Wasabi is a quaint little place with the best sushi around. Very hard to find a place that competes to their freshness and flavor.

We tried Wasabi for dinner based on a relative's recommendation and other positive reviews on TA. We agree, the sushi here is very fresh. The rolls were comparable in quality to good NYC sushi restaurants, but relatively larger in size and with good-sized portions of fish at a much more reasonable price. The Special Rolls were more expensive (2x +/-) and not necessarily that much better than their regular rolls/hand rolls selection. However, the Special Rolls do offer nice alternative choices to the usual maki roll combinations.

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
