Downtown Leavenworth is a Bavarian themed tourist village. They are big on beer, bratwurst & sausage. So I wasn't expecting much from a "Thai & sushi place" here. You have to go through the hallway of a Cajun type restaurant & go downstairs, past some rooms barred & padlocked. I almost turned around before getting to Wasabi.

My wife & I split some pad Thai & a couple of rolls. Now, we don't agree on spice level, so the waitress suggested the pad Thai with no heat, & a side of pepper flakes for me. Perfect (& appreciated) solution. The rolls were fresh & plentiful.

The atmosphere was not great...typical faux Asian decor. There was a malfunctioning fridge in the bar area that kept cycling on & off: the noise was annoying. And there was a broom, dustpan & shop vac sitting out at the end of the bar, visible to the dining tables.

But the food & service more than made up for the weird vibe of the place itself. So when you've had your fill of fatty sausages & want something lighter, Wasabi is a gem.

The food here was acceptable. Not amazing, but very good. The decor' was nighclub-ish and not impressive (apparently catering to the after-hours crowd), but we were happy to have a good dinner, the ONLY one of three we had in Leavenworth. We would come back here.

We've gone here twice now in the past year, awesome sushi - comparable to some of the high end sushi places in Seattle. It's off the main drag - we stumbled upon it the first time, and now will seek it out every time we head over the mountains. See you again in January!

We stopped here for dinner outside on the patio. I had the Chicken garlic Thai dish with rice. It was very good and reasonably priced too.
