Very fresh, good quality sushi that they cut generously. No skimpy portions here! Even if you're not a "dessert person," try a dessert here. The coconut cake has freshly shredded coconut in and on it, and the green tea tempura ice cream

It's a bit pricey but the sushi is so good. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the staff is very friendly and courteous. It's in a nice location with ample parking.

We have been there twice for sushi, the place was packed both times. We sit at the sushi bar, which actually has enough space so that you can move your elbows. Super fresh fish and great rolls, wish the prices were lower so I could go more often. The chef was alot of fun, even though he was very busy. Great green tea ice cream!

This spot is busy a lot, so that helps with the confidence, but all you really need to do is taste the stuff. It is yummy! I prefer the sushi, but the Thai curries are not bad and are not boiled to death like I sometimes get from Chinese "Thai" curries. Ask if they have mangoes and sticky rice! When it is available, it is great :)

It is the best Japanese food in town. Just a little bit expensive. Not your every weekend kind of restaurant. Definitely the one that you will go when you have special occasion...

After moving here from Greensboro and trying a couple of the local sushi places, I didn't believe I was going to find one that could hold a candle to some of the restaurants in Greensboro. Then I found Kanki! Buy 1 get 1 free sushi rolls ALL the time and Incredible hibachi! We can go in and fill up on sushi and still come out with leftovers and only spend around $30 after the tip! The sushi is incomparable to any other I've found in the Triangle. Be sure to try the Deep Sea Roll and the Scottish Roll! They changed my mind forever about warm rolls! HIGHLY recommended!

This is possibly the hardest restaraunt to find, but once you do find it it's a restaraunt you'll be glad you spent your money on. I hardly eat out simply because I feel like I literally just ate my money. Anywyas, this place doesn't disappoint. Fast service. Most important friendly servce. Food is fresh and quality is the best. I ate some recommended dish and got it the hottest spicest they could make it for me. Not only was it hot, but it was hot and you could still enjoy the flavor, which is rare with hhot spicy dishes. They are servsafe certified. Money isn't being thrown away here. Beautiful place.

This is the best Pad Thai I've ever had; nowhere else will satisfy a craving anymore. The service is wonderful, and the owner is so nice.. he'll remember a face even after a year, and he can memorize 10 customized orders without writing them down. Crazy. The only downside I've experienced is the wait time. I have a hunch that the owner is the only cook, so it took our party of 10 about 40 minutes to receive our food. But for this kind of Pad Thai, it's definitely worth the wait.

This place is great! I've been to a lot of Thai eateries around the world (except Thailand, unfortunately), and this ranks among the most enjoyable. Probably the best presentation of Som Tom (papaya salad) I've seen. Creative and tasty! I also had the chicken panang curry, which was wonderful. The price is about right for the portions, but it's a steal for the quality of food. Though I went in the afternoon by myself (in town on business), I think this would be a great place to take a date. Eat here. You'll be glad you did.

I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to Thai food. I've never been to Thailand, but I have eaten a lot of food at Thai restaurants.This place is amazing. I've had nearly everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. Additionally, as a bonus, their portions are large and their prices are reasonable.In the area, I've been to Twisted Noodles (Durham), Champa (Raleigh/Brier Creek) and Sushi Thai (Cary). In DC, Mai Tai, Sala Thai, The Old Siam, Thai Chili. In Arlington, VA, Thaiphoon, Sala Thai, Cafe Asia and Bankok 54. And in Fredericksburg, VA, Bangkok Cafe.I recommend that you go and try their Crispy Fried Tofu, Basil Rolls (which they will make without basil if you ask), Potstickers and Eggrolls. For your entree, their Panang, Chicken Massaman, Pad See Ew and Spicy Cashew Nut are all awesome.

We have enjoyed this restaurant several times. They are always welcoming to our well behaved bistro dog. Their outside seating is nice. They have a very good wine list and every food item we have tried has been delicious. The catfish was marvelous.

This is a really good restaurant with a sleek, modern vibe. To be honest, it doesn't fit in its location, but the food is definitely worthwhile. While the prices may not be as enticing as Akashi and Shiki, the food is excellent, and the service is top notch.For starters, I absolutely recommend getting either the Chicken Lettuce Wraps or the Fried Tofu. Both are delicious. All of their rolls are good. I also really like the Albacore, Salmon and White Tuna.

After trying a number of sushi restaurants, including popular ones southern Durham, we stumbled onto Akashi and have been loyal customers ever since. The sushi is amazing. We've tried a number rolls on the menu and have yet to stumble on a bad one. And we've also come to love the Hibachi items, the steak has become a personal favorite. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It's a great place to go to sit and talk with friends. We highly recommend it.

Best sushi rice in the triangle. Freshest fish in the triangle. Most consistent of any sushi bar in the triangle. Best nori in the triangle (imported from Japan). Real shiso, not plastic strips. Most creative and skilled chefs in the triangle.

The sushi is well maid and tastes quite good, but why come hear when you can go to the grocery store. Well they also have great calimari and a divinr thing that's basically fried sushi. It's a cool little place and if you like sushi, or just plain old asian food go to this place.

Should you be weary of a sushi place that has a Bucket-o-Tots on the menu? It's loud and kind of cramped and usually full of young people but the Yum-Yum and Godzirra roll are SO worth it.

This is my go to sushi place. The owner is super friendly, the prices are average, but great for sushi that is actually authentic. The Volcano roll may be the best non-raw sushi I've ever had! Presentation is an art and different with every visit. Highly recommended!

First time trying Elephant Thai so I went with the old standby, Drunken Noodles. I also tried the Crying Tiger appetizer. They delivered in less than 20 mins which was great. The Crying Tiger was great. The BBQ beef had great flavor & the dipping sauce was perfect. My drunken noodles were just what I was looking for. Great flavor & good heat. I will definitely try their delivery again.

This would be a chic restaurant for downtown Richmond. So what is it doing in Salisbury? The wild ginger salad was subtle and tasty, The lamb lollipops came with a delightful curry sauce. Also had the Halloween sushi roll special that was truly special. Imaginative presentations backed up by delicious food. I vill be back.

Took my son by his choosing for his birthday. We are both very discriminating about sushi. Great place. Extensive menu. We sat at the sushi bar and were served by Shawn. The Black Diamond Roll was worth every penny and then some, we had two and the second one came with a candle.Happy Birthday Buddy!! I got to be with my son and got a great present as well. We'll be back.

I am picky about sushi and have had bad experiences before. So when somebody suggested Wasabi, I was not sure. It turned out surprisingly pleasant! Really fresh fish and great sushi! Romantic atmosphere. Service was undoubted slow. It seemed Everything took a While. However, other than that, the waiter was very friendly and respectful.

I went into this place expecting a mediocre dining experience. I was pleasently surprised.

Granted I had only sushi but....the pieces of fish were good-sized, the fish, crab and vegetables were fresh and the presentation...above average. Service was good and the food came quick (only 6 people there @ 5:30PM and 4 sushi chefs). We sat at the sushi bar and they had a few TVs' on for watching and relaxing. They had Kirin Ichiban on tap which was real nice too.

Two people, 20 pieces of sushi ordered ala carte, 2 or 3 sushi rolls and 4 tap Kirins = $110 with tip. Not cheap....but not too expensive. I'd go again for sure.

I have visited Wasabi many, many times and have sampled different things from their menu. I personally love Thai and have enjoyed their red curry and pad thai dishes. I also enjoy their sushi rolls. There sushi is super fresh and high quality. The wait staff has always been courteous and timely. The atmosphere is not as trendy and fun as some of the down town restaurants but it is quiet, lean, and pretty.

I have eaten at Wasabi 3 times in the past month, mostly because it is close and is a nice change from the usual pizza/mexican/chinese restaurants which tend to dominate the Apex/Holly Springs area. The atmosphere is pleasant - good for business lunches and a little more dim/romantic at dinner. I have always received good service both in the restaurant and at the sushi bar and feel that the sushi is consistantly good and fresh. I also like their Pad See Ew.

I have read the bad reviews and don't doubt that those people had bad experiences, but I believe that if this was a terrible restaurant I would probably have had at least one bad experience in the 20 times I have been there over the past year. Don't get me wrong, this is no Nobu, but then again Cary is no NYC. Overall the price is reasonable and the sushi is perfect for a casual night out. Would definitely recommend.

This was the first restaurant I went to when I moved to NC and I wasn't sure how the Japanese food would be. It was really good and the restaurant was a really nice one. Friends enjoyed various drinks there and I definitely would recommend them for great food and service!

Decent sushi and food. Always consistent. Can be fun.
Big dining room. We enjoy and will patronize.

I eat here probably 2-3 times a month as I live very close. It is my favorite place for sushi in town but definitely not the cheapest. Then again, who wants cheap, raw fish?:)

Everyone is very nice and service is pretty good. The sushi cooks look like they have been doing this for a long time. There doesn't seem to be much staff turnover from visit to visit.

Definitely recommended!
