Two of us shared the Luxurious Love Boat for $44. It came with thinly sliced salmon, thicker pieces of tuna, and nice looking Negri Sushi (meat on top of rice ball), but the rolls were badly made, lacklustre (small one-ingredient rolls, some of the masago rolls fell apart because the seaweed wrap was not sealed at all.) I've eaten better... More

This is the right place for: A) people who truly have the 'craving' that has yet to be satisfied; B) anyone who has ever been disappointed by small portions and needs their enthusiasm for life restored; C) people who think the performance should be culinary rather than auditory; D) people who don't think a sushi restaurant should smell of fish...

As I was heading down 16th toward my hotel, I passed by this hidden little sushi spot. So driving around the block, I parked in front, grabbed my paper work and ventured in. It was 7:00pm and there were only a few tables occupied but as they were closing in an hour, that made sense. I was greeted with the... More

A group of us ordered food from Wasabi through Just Eat, and they completely ruined the order. They neglected to inform the delivery person as to which orders were going to which house, and as a result all the orders got mixed up. The delivery person, then had to go back to Wasabi and have the staff figure out where... More

Sat at the sushi bar you were given a sheet with a list of all available sushi and sashimi. You selected what you wanted and how many pieces. Service was excellent the sashimi was great! Some of the sashimi was selling for a dollar a piece. The presentation was excellent been to fancier places with high price menu that lacked... More

When I feel like a quick hit of sushi I like slipping into this conveniently located sushi restaurant. The food is good, the choice of sushi is good, the service is excellent as is the value. I am often on my own and this is a place where I feel very comfortable and am not treated as a pariah because... More

Made reservation and informed of family visit. Initial order rocky with having to ask for items combined with order and had wrong items brought to table. Watery salads, very average rolls, wrong food and had to follow up on servers. Correct items arrive and end of service. 3/4 hour and had to go to chefs and ask for bill. Wanted... More

Everyone has a touchstone for the "Japanese-ness" of a Japanese restaurant. The one that works for me is, when they bring out the tempura, is there a little mound of grated radish, orosidaikon, there for you to stir into the bowl of sauce? Well, WASABI fails that test. No daikon. And indeed the front-of-house personnel are Chinese-Canadian, the old copies... More
