“Awesome sushi”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

My fiancé and I, or family and I have been going to this place for years! It's amazingly fresh sushi and definitely worth the money you will pay! Their mango martinis are amazing along with other drinks too but I stick with their mango martinis. My fiancé loves the Kamakasi Crunch Maki roll which is really good! Parking is usually pretty easy but you have to go expecting to drive around for a little or park in a further parking lot and walk a little. Staff is extremely nice and professional.

“Fantastic Sushi!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

My husband and I frequent Wasabi. The chilean seabass roll is my favorite. The sushi is always fresh and always delicious. The avacado crab salad is a perfect appetizer. Martinis are also great. Highly recommend.

“Always great sushi, year after year”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

My family and I have been going to Wasabi for years and their food continues to impress. The decor is modern and upscale, while the environment is welcoming for couples, business meetings and families. The location is great, right in downtown Somerville, with plenty of parking in nearby municipal lots, which are only a block away.

The food is always outstanding and they even have a great bar, which is unusual for Somerville, given the many BYOB establishments. Make sure you try some of their unusual and creative cocktails and martinis. The bartenders are usually very friendly and are good at keeping their customers coming back for more.

The sushi there is always fresh and recently they've added many new sushi and cooked fusion creations, which now I have to try every visit until I go through all of them. One thing I like in particular about Wasabi is that they don't skimp on the fish, the give you a little bit of rice and plenty of fish, unlike other places that overload you with rice so they can give you a little piece of fish to save money. If you don't see something you like on the menu, you can always ask the sushi chefs to make you something off menu, which I have done many times.

For anyone looking for a reliable, reasonable and fresh sushi restaurant, then look no further. The service is above average and the food is as good as it gets when you eat sushi.

“Always Amazing Sushi”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Wasabi always delivers on amazingly fresh, delicious sushi, hand crafted at the sushi bar at the front of the restaurant. Boasting a full sit down bar and some great cocktail concoctions, they have a lovely dining room that is very modern and feels like an NYC establishment. If sushi isn't your cup of tea, fear not, they have plenty of delicious cooked dishes as well. You can make a reservation here, which would be recommended on a weekend as it can get busy. They also do a wonderful lunch special and take out. Prices are a bit high, but worth it over and over again.

“Amazingly fresh and delicious Sushi!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We were searching for a Sushi place that had a bar and an array of cooked and uncooked options. Wasabi Asian Plates and Sushi Bar was recommended by a friend and he was spot on. The service was attentive but not obtrusive and the food was prepared quickly. We had eight rolls, a sashimi plate, coconut shrimp and satay. All of the food came out at the same time as we had requsted. The atmosphere was tasteful and very clean. The staff was very friendly and we loved the sushi so much that we ordered one more roll for there and one togo. The last roll was the Chilean Sea Bass Tempura Maki and it was perfect end to the meal. If you go to Wasabi order that roll and you will not be disappointed!!!
