Enjoyable family night out to Wasabi, nice space and pleasant music. Tried a variety of food all of which was excellent, fresh and tasty. Servers were attentive but did not rush you out the door.

We were lucky to have stumbled on this gem on Canada Day just before the fireworks. The charming ambiance and professional service were matched by the highest quality of sushi. Worth every penny. Highly recommended!
