Wasabi is hand down much better than Sato and seeing as they are right across from each other its a no brainier. Seabar and Kunis are also fantastic choices but not casual like wasabi. Wasabi is great for lunch or dinner. I love the lump...More

This tiny place is crowded. no wonder, the food is excellent and the service is good. Some of the dishes are quite innovative--like the "Wasabi cake" which was a happy surprise. With such built-up of expectations it was disappointing to get seaweed salad that was...More

Like finding where the locals go. Loved the place, the food, the small space added to the authenticity of a non-chain restaurant, and the price.

Wasabi is a little hole in the wall on Elmwood but I think it has some of the best sushi for the price range in town. I love their lunch specials and range of options. Service can be a little wonky, but for the most...More

Very small place across the street from Panera's. Worth a trip as the sushi and sashimi were great. The service was good although there were only two other people in the restaurant with us. I went with my cousins from Buffalo who had gotten the...More
