A go-to for Japanese food in Surfers Paradise. Do yourself a favour and order the fish box with mackerel. You won't be disappointed.

Food was good, as was the service. I ordered the bento box and a glass of wine. Reasonably priced and quickly came out.

We found this place by eating breakfast at another restaurant below and decided to come back it. Boy glad we did! The food is fantastic we had agedashi tofu, gyoza, 9 pieces of sashimi and two bowls of steamed rice which we just managed to finish. The food was fresh and very reasonably priced we would recommend this restaurant to... More

Just enjoyed the best Japanese at Wassam. Stated with Beef Tataki, followed a mixed Sashimi, them Prawn Tempura and finished with assorted Sushi. Ingredients were firstclass, flavour excellent and price quite reasonable. If you enjoy Japanese food then Wassam you must try. This is the best on the Coast.

We don't come up to the Gold Coast often but we always make sure we visit Wassam to see how they are going. Still a great family outing and very authentic. You can BYO wine so grab a bottle from Liquorland downstairs.

We were so lucky to have discovered this place. Service was really great, earlier reviews said that the waitress never seemed to smile but mind you, this is a family business and she is trying really hard to serve all tables at once being the only server here. She rarely smiled the whole night but her attention to details was... More

We have been coming here for about seven years - at least once each year when we visit family in the Gold Coast hinterland. We just love the food and will continue to patronise this establishment. Wassam is less expensive than other Japanese restaurants we have tried in Australia and overseas. The presentation of dishes is really lovely. Service is... More

Food was very tasty and well presented. Would happily go back again. Was nice and quiet. Staff were helpful. Good variety for the menu for both food and drinks.
