Wasabi Zen is a family favorite and the sushi is often used as a measuring stick against other sushi restaurant's fare. We enjoy the wide variety of rolls offered, depending on which family members we consistently order the Green Tree Roll, Spicy Tuna, Three Amigos and Dancing Eel in addition to other sushi and sashimi.

My friends and I weren't that impressed. They couldn't substitute raw salmon for cooked salmon in a roll I wanted. It was fine, but I did get a California roll. I told the server no fish eggs... I got them. The food was meh

Definitely in our top three sushi restaurants in the area! Small place but nicely laid out. The sushi choices are varied and always fresh. The service, which used to be mediocre at best, has much improved the last few times we've been here (once we had to get up to get our own refill of hot tea!), but we always... More

I have been coming to this place for years. The sushi is always tasty and they have some really great rolls. We are lucky not to have to travel far for such a good meal. We mainly get carry out. Plan on waiting since they are always pretty busy. Eating in the restaurant doesn't provide much ambiance. Ask for extra... More

I've had sushi all over the country in the places where sushi is king. NYC, Miami, LA etc... Wasabi Zen in little ole' Olney destroys all of them! Fresh, creative and reasonable. No reason to go anywhere else...

We've been coming to this place since we moved to Olney years ago. it's a hidden gem in a somewhat hidden strip center. The sushi is terrific! Love the spicy salmon and baked scallop roll. Definitely check it out.

We have been to this little sushi place many times. never disappointed. the sashimi is always fresh, and there is a large variety of sushi rolls you can choose from. some of them are very creative. the scallop hand rolls are out of this world. the price is very reasonable for sushi - some restaurants can be outrageously expensive, but...

Wasabi Zen deliver consistently great fresh sushi and food. All variety of their Nigiri Sushi taste great with the correct balance of fish, wasabi and rice. Their Sushi Deluxe is a excellent choice. They also have a great selection of special roll sushi. Make sure you check the little "white board" by the sushi bar, they list their special that... More
