Really good variety of tradition and contemporary sushi and yum cha type bites over and above the usual mundane sushi you get from random sushi bars in Wellington. Very fresh. Very delicious. Excellent prices. Will definitely return.

First tried sushi train in Sydney and been hooked ever since. Discovered Wellington had one and had to go there while in town for family function. First time I went by myself, had mum with me this time, her first ride on the sushi train. The fact I returned says it all really. Delicious, tasty and fresh food right in... More

I regularly have sushi here! I think the food is fresher than other restuarants in Wellington. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Besides those yummy sushi, they also offer ramen, rice bowl, and sashimi (which is very fresh and tasty). You definitely need to avoice lunch time; there will be no seats for you!

With so many delicious offerings in and around Wellington I feel that you could find better sushi offerings. It was busy but most of the items on the train kept circling and circling. They did not replenish the items taken quickly at all. The restaurant itself is nothing exceptional and the items on the menu are not all on the... More

Love this place, already went there many times. It is a conveyor belt sushi, so you can just get in and start eating. Authentic japanese staff and food, very friendly. They have crazy fish I have not seen before ever like aburi red and golden snapper, sea urchin, some special squid, lotus root chips and other stuff. It was so... More

My first visit to a shush train and I was disappointed it was delicious. All the seafood dishes were my favourite but overall everything was yummy

This is the first time I had done the a sushi train and this place was great. Loads to choose from & conveyor didn't move too fast. Helpful waitress explained everything we needed to know & took orders for hot items that could be ordered separately. Very nice food - fresh and reasonably priced.

Really lovely staff, yummy food, zero wait time, and great value. I LOVED Wasabi Sushi, as did my young daughter. I let my daughter choose for us, which meant I got to try a couple of things I hadn't tried before, and every single dish was great. Thoroughly recommended.

My sister was in town from New Plymouth with my niece and nephew. They really wanted to go to a sushi train. I wasn't aware of one until we looked into it and found Wasabi Sushi on Cuba. On arrival I can see why too, it’s very unassuming. It's only really once you enter you realise it's there. We all... More

My kids love coming back to the sushi train for any birthday/ celebration they can. Not the cheapest sushi (my daughter alone can eat $30 worth!) but nice to try a few interesting dishes while the children get to pick what they are used to. They enjoyed the brownies for dessert and the kids "beer".
