This place often fills up quickly and the seating because the space is so small ends up feeling elbow to elbow. It's dark and not exactly current in its motif but is typical of many downtown establishments that see a lot of traffic year after year. Seems like it may have been a dive bar once in its history. Nevertheless... More

The shogun potatoes are to die for. We could make a meal on just this. Our adult children like to eat here for their birthdays but for my husband and I we like other chinese places better.

My wife and I have very mixed feelings about Wasabi's. We love the sushi, having tried several offerings. We especially love the Dang Bang Shrimp appetizer. And their ginger salad is very good. But the wine selection is bad. And the atmosphere and tables are not good at all. Too dark, and uncomfortable; especially the benches against the wall. As... More

We LOVE Wasabi's! We live 2 hours away(one way!) and this is our FAVORITE holiday gift! ANYTIME we have a special day, we forego gifts in favor of dinner at this restaurant. We LOVE the Spicy Salmon Hand rolls and the rainbow rolls! Outstanding Sushi and Sashimi!

You know how "trying a sushi place" can be a little scary? We tried this one for you. It is delicious, the staff is great and the price is fair. We will eat here again next time we are in the area.

Took our daughter and husband here for dinner this past Saturday night. The food, service and atmosphere was great as always. The staff is great and Santiago does a great job with the sushi. Very good portions and fairly priced. The gyoza( dumplings) plump and fantastic....always a favorite.

I lived in Roanoke for a year, and this was one of my favorite places to eat at. I grew up in Seattle, and there are some great sushi places there, and this place is comparable to them. I haven't had a meal here I didn't like. The service is great, and the food is good. Moving from TN to... More

Came here for sushi on a business trip. Food was average, service was good. Would probably check out another sushi place next time I'm in Roanoke.

We were in town and wanted to eat a good Japanese meal. Wasabi was the perfect choice. The kids had the chicken teryaki and liked it a lot. My wife and I split a sushi sashimi maki boat and everything was fresh and delicious. Service was great, the staff was very friendly, and the price was very reasonable:)

I have been living in Roanoke for 3.5 years and I missed Japanese foods so much . Here you can order a set lunch witnin 10 dollars with salad and sushi that is very good choice to eat at. My husband and I love to go there :)
