I ordered the volcano roll. It was terrible. The flavor of the burnt scallops and rice from the supposed chef taking a torch to it was awful!!! There was a combination of cold, I mean quite cold roll, and warm scallop at the same time in my mouth, which was very unpleasant. The miso soup was watery and bla. I also ordered the teriyaki combo with chicken and steak. The steak was okay, but the chicken was pale and looked like a frozen chicken breast from costco heated through and watery teriyaki sauce poured on top. The service was almost non existent. Every time I needed something, our waiter was nowhere to be found. I will never eat there again, and I suggest that you not waste your time or money either.

Pros: Non

Cons: The Headline says it all...

I went to Wasabi yesterday. I started out extremely annoyed by the fact that there was a guy playing the trumpet right through the open door while inside the restaurant they were playing Daughtry. Also, outside you could hear an old Brittany spears song. Highly annoying. We ordered our soup. She brought the drinks. She brought the sushi. I pour my soy sauce and 10-15 gnats fall out with it. I couldn't finish my food and the manager only comped us 20%.

Stay away from wasabi. There are better palces for sushi... like Miyagi's on Sunset.

Pros: EXCELLENT Miso Soup.

Cons: The soy sauce comes with gnats.

A few months ago a few friends and I decided to try this place. It was a Friday night and like many other restaurants we expected to do our share of waiting.

We were seated withing 20 minuted (not bad) but our waitress took her time before she came to take our drinks order. After 10 to 15 minutes she finally did. The sushi was good but it took forever to arrive.

This week-end we thought we would give it another try. The sushi was good but the service was even worst. The Manager ended up comping us for half of the meal because of how rude the waitress was.

If you want good sushi and bad service, this is the place to go.

We were killing some time at Citywalk and wanted a nice leisurely dinner. Unfortunately it was a Saturday night so the restaurant was really busy. The wait for a table was about about 20 minutes which is short for Citywalk restaurants on a Saturday night. The menu was your typical japanese fare. Our meals were good, pricey though.

I've been here twice so far, and unfortunately it's gotten worse over the years. Wear your earplugs on the way in, to avoid going deaf from the uber-annoying, 120dB, amplified corporate pop music from the CityWalk courtyard. Make sure to order the Echigo beer -- a smooth, premium Japanese import that's somewhat hard to find (unlike the Molson Canadian-brewed Asahi, Los Angeles Budweiser-brewed Kirin, or Canadian-brewed Sapporo). Also order the "T-Rex" cut sushi roll... good stuff! Beware, though... sometimes the sushi chefs get creative and add sauces to their rolls that aren't mentioned in the menu's description. This is normally not a problem, but for those of you on diets (or with food allergies), it can be a bad thing. On my most recent visit (on a Sunday afternoon), the waiter forgot to deliver a side of steamed rice and later sat a table full of fat tourists (complete with a stroller and screaming brat) right beside us. Sigh... thus is CityWalk.

Pros: Great beer (Echigo), good food (specialty sushi rolls)

Cons: Annoying CityWalk atmosphere, mediocre service

Fresh sushi and rolls (King Kong roll is picture perfect!) fresh edamame, tasty sake and fantastic service make this unobtrusive restaurant on Citywalk a MUST.

One afternoon we happened to stop by and try Wasabi on Citywalk after a movie. I was a little reserved, considering that Citywalk is a lot of show. But this joint really stepped up. I was really impressed with the amount of food we got. Their halibut is really good. I will say that I've had better tuna @ Noshi Sushi, but other than that everything was great. Service was good and the place was clean.
