I love it!. I love the food here, sometimes the food takes way too long. I have been the only person there and my food has taken 45 mins. Other than that I love the sushi here, especially Sushi Pizza!!!!!
Best Sushi in the whole Richmond area. My wife and I have been going to Wasabi on a weekly basis for the last four years. We have been up and down the east coast and I can tell you this is the best there is. You will never get a bad meal from them. The fish is always fresh. The other "non-sushi" items are fantastic. We tell all of our friends about this place. The owner and the waitstaff are always friendly and helpful. They truly appreciate your business. They are consumate professionals. I want to say again. We have been eating there for four years and have NEVER had a bad meal. If there were more than five stars I would give it.
Worst Sushi Ever.
First of all I am Chinese and have tasted sushi from all around the world. I drove 30 minutes down to this restaurant and met the biggest disappointment ever. I got to say, this was the worst sushi I have ever tasted. Fish was not fresh, seaweed was soggy, deep fried crab was way over fried and was hard as a rock. I ordered Takko Yaki, Dynamite Roll, Bomb Roll, Spider Roll, and Shrimp Tempura Roll. None of these was any good.
If you are Asian and care about what you put in your mouth, then this is not your restaurant!!!
Best In Richmond. I've had a lot of sushi over the years but never as good and as fresh as Wasabi. We had the Spider Roll, Spicy Tuna, Tempura Shrimp, Pumkin Roll, and California Roll. Each was a mouth pleasing experience. Fresh, perfect rice, perfect crisp vegies. I have a new religion......WASABI! If you live on the southside GO! If you don't live on the southside GO!
The Literal Best in Japanese Cuisine.
I have been in the culinary trade for about 10 years. I have eaten all over Richmond and this place is a rare find. If I was to rave about everything that makes this place incredible my review would take up more text than any person can comfortably read so I will go over the highlights.
If you love sushi and you live in the Midlothian area then, like me, this place will become your sushi destination. If you have read the myriad reviews about this place on other websites you will notice a consistent word. Fresh. I simply can't put into words the truth of this claim. I have eaten here so frequently now that I can't put a number to my total visits and every single time the fish has been so clean and so pure that even sushi skeptics would have a hard time not converting. Their regular sushi is obviously incredible but their specialties are even more so. If you are a first timer to Wasabi and looking to try the best of their best order the pumpkin roll and never look back. It is always on their specials board and rightfully so. This is a meal that will literally change your life.
The thing that works against Wasabi is that so many people are fixated by their sushi that nobody really talks about the rest of their food and this really deserves a lot of mention as well. The rest of Wasabi's menu should not be neglected and if you do not like sushi then you do not have to fear searching for an option you might like. They have a variety of noodle bowls (delicious broths and a few exceptional ingredients combined to create soul stirring dishes), they have hibachi options with your choice of sauces ( I recommend the shrimp with asian bbq, it is exquisite), and their bento boxes offer a great variety and a really killer value. You will be absolutely amazed by the amount of food you get, the quality, and all for prices that fit literally any budget. Oh yea, want a great appetizer? Two words. Pork gyoza.
I tell at least two people a week about Wasabi. I also try and take as many people as I can there. The best part is, these people come back and tell me that they not only thoroughly enjoyed themselves, but they also went out the next week and took two more friends that have never been. I never write reviews. This is most likely my first and only. Wasabi deserves it, and more importantly, you deserve to know about it so that you can discover a local place that truly lives up to its praise. If you support one local business this week, make it Wasabi, they have earned it and you will never be sorry you did it.
