It seems like no one ever knows about it that everytime I tell people to try this restaurant as opposed to any other ones for sushi , they always thank me later because the sushi and the cooks and all the people that work there are amazing!

Came for a light dinner of sushi. Delicious! Seated quickly and was able to ask chef questions about rolls. Took his suggestions and our orders were perfect. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

Every time we see family in Wilmington NC we plan a visit to Wasabi Sushi. It is wonderful, tasty and fresh. Love the crab salad, "in & out salmon roll", tuna and everything else we have tried on the menu. For our 7 year old non-sushi eater the chicken katsu(?) is fantastic. Owner and staff run a terrific restaurant. Wish... More

This was my second visit to Wasabi. Fist with my daughter who raved about the quality and how she enjoyed the experience. We sat at the sushi bar and seemed to sample a bit of everything. Many things were on the house. My recent guests from New York were also impressed with their order and the generosity of the portions.... More

Sushi is not my "cup of tea", so I wouldn't know a good sushi from an OK sushi. My wife, however, tried the sashimi and said it was really good. I always order the Gyoza as an appetizer and the vegetable tempura as my main course. The Gyoza is fried and tastie .. the Tempura is light and crunchy. Oh... More

I stopped in with my wife for dinner. My wife ordered Bulgoki, (she said it was a little salty and pricy $18.95), but came with a large ginger salad and a miso soup my wife said was excellent. I ordered an Ika Salad, $7.95 (smoked squid and mountain vegetables with spicy sauce which was excellent) and a Cherry Blossom Roll... More

I lived in Asia for a few years and during that time I had some of the best noodles, sushi, and food I have ever had the pleasure of eating (I also had some of the worst, but that is a different story). Wasabi Sushi was pretty spot on with some of the food in Asia in terms of authentic... More

I am a sushi lover from NY and have tried just about every place in town. I was discouraged until a friend recommended Wasabi. To my delight the sushi was delicious. There is definitely an art to it and they do it right here. The owners are also very nice people - just an added bonus!

Wasabi Sushi is located off College Road in the far end corner of a strip mall but don't let first impressions fool you. Make no mistake the sushi served here by very friendly personnel is definitely first class and well presented. Besides sushi we also had Korean beef and sizzling teriyaki shrimps which were both delicious. Wether you live in... More

Feels like "cheers" bar. always friendly service and attention to my preferences. Among top 3 sushi places in town based on food, and by far my favorite. If you like rolls w/ lots of sauce covering the taste of the fish, maybe head somewhere else. Lunch specials are a good way to start.
