We have eaten at Wasabi numerous times over the years and have found the food always consistently good. It is very tasty, well priced, and staff are always friendly. The menu provides a variety between sushi and noodle/rice dishes. Try the "Hot Plate"..........awesome!!

Stopped in for a quick lunch bite. The service was fast and the restaurant was reasonably busy for a Friday. Rolls, sashimi and green tea for two was about $40. Rolls were great (not too much rice!) and well filled. Definitely recommend if you're in the Vernon area.

Ordered the teriyaki bento box for take out. Everything was fantastic, and the miso soup was warm 20min later. The only thing a bit lacking were the California rolls. I would definitely order this again!

Good sushi and sashimi as well as more popular tempura and soups. Seaweed salad is excellent ,but miso is watery and so so. Service is good in this relatively small restaurant We attend once every couple of weeks. Service persons and owners have come to know our preferences.

When they first opened they were the best of the sushi places in town, but things have been kind of sliding downhill over the last 6 months - not as clean as it was at the start, slower service, and tummy trouble a few times after eating there.. and the last time I went in, the raw salmon i ordered...

Yummy unique rolls, always fresh fish and they have excellent service. The atmosphere is casual and fun. Coming from the coast, I really didn't expect a sushi restaurant in Vernon to be this good! Well done Wasabi, you have become one of my favorites here...

I love this place. It is clean and uncluttered, service is always friendly and efficient, the prices are excellent for what you get. Best of all the food is absolutely delicious - the bento box is the best deal in town!

Found the gem of a restaurant on our way to Kelowna, and we're very impressed with the quality of the food and service. Looking forward to eating there again.
