I stopped in with my wife for dinner. My wife ordered Bulgoki, (she said it was a little salty and pricy $18.95), but came with a large ginger salad and a miso soup my wife said was excellent. I ordered an Ika Salad, $7.95 (smoked squid and mountain vegetables with spicy sauce which was excellent) and a Cherry Blossom Roll... More

I lived in Asia for a few years and during that time I had some of the best noodles, sushi, and food I have ever had the pleasure of eating (I also had some of the worst, but that is a different story). Wasabi Sushi was pretty spot on with some of the food in Asia in terms of authentic... More

I am a sushi lover from NY and have tried just about every place in town. I was discouraged until a friend recommended Wasabi. To my delight the sushi was delicious. There is definitely an art to it and they do it right here. The owners are also very nice people - just an added bonus!

Wasabi Sushi is located off College Road in the far end corner of a strip mall but don't let first impressions fool you. Make no mistake the sushi served here by very friendly personnel is definitely first class and well presented. Besides sushi we also had Korean beef and sizzling teriyaki shrimps which were both delicious. Wether you live in... More

Feels like "cheers" bar. always friendly service and attention to my preferences. Among top 3 sushi places in town based on food, and by far my favorite. If you like rolls w/ lots of sauce covering the taste of the fish, maybe head somewhere else. Lunch specials are a good way to start.

Best kept secret in Wilmington! Tiny little place at the back of University Landing next to UNCW. Everyone needs to discover this place! Unique menu, friendly owners, outstanding food. Our family will be back!

Everything was excellent. The place is quiet and very clean. The deco is cute too. The spicy crab salad was delish. I tried something new for my sushi rolls....and wasn't disappointed. The eel sauce is the best I've ever had. The spicy mayo was def spicy.l, to my delight. I would have given it a 5 if they took American... More

Who would have thought that a tiny little place tucked back in a strip mall was so delicious? Our daughter was here for orientation at UNCW and we were all craving sushi. We googled some places and saw good reviews for wasabi. We eat sushi a LOT. This sushi was outstanding. We loved everything we got! The Corona roll was... More

I had the Wilmington and lobster roll. Both were delicious but I loved the Wilmington! Also enjoyed the house salad. The server surprised us with yummy spicy crab salad and an orange cut in a nice presentation when we were finished. Highly recommend!

I have visited twice and each experience was surprising with phenomenal sushi and great staff! The location is in a small strip mall, but once inside you quickly realize the attention to Asian detail and atmosphere. The rainbow and heart attack sushi dishes are scrumptious! You must try the monkey balls too. The sushi chef pays attention to detail. Each... More
