Can't fault the location, and decor however the Degustation menu was nothing to rave about. I Looove... Sushi and have been lucky enough to sample the degustation menu of Shunka Koy in Barcelona several times with Michelin Star chef IDEKI MATSUHISA and feel that I have a comparison of what I would expect for a good degustation menu. Japanese food... More

What an awesome night. The degustation is worth the experience. It's a thoughtful meal that will impress. We also went the wine match which was great. Tried out some wines we had never heard of before which was great fun. It's expensive but worth it.

Wasabi came with great recommendations as a "must do" dining experience however, we were quite disappointed, especially based on the price. We had an amazing waitress who was great about food intolerances and all the dishes sounded delicious in theory but didn't deliver. The fish tasted dry, old and tired and a lot of the flavour combinations just didn't work.... More

Highly recommended by friends we were expecting something special, however what we ended up with was extremely over priced with a service that was un-audible and very average. The four of us all regretted wasting our time let alone money in going.

It was a last minute decision to take the plunge and dine like royalty. We booked on Thursday morning for Friday lunch. I asked for a table with a view, and I think if you are looking for a view, go for lunch and not dinner. The weather plays a big part in the whole experience. We were sitting right... More

We had high expectations after this was recommended to us. Unfortunately it didn't live up to it. The wagu was just average. Wasn't bad but was far from great and after being charged an extra 25pp for it we expected more. On a positive note the lamb gyoza's The nigiri were good. Maybe it was an off night. Which isn't...

From the moment we arrived, to the music play list, to the dish introduction at every delivery, the nine course degustation was nothing less than impeccable. Worth the splash. The only faulter i could give was if they had added to the Japanese experience with a warm towel at the end of the meal, yet really nothing more to say... More

Wasabi offers lovely Japanese in a great environment overlooking the Noosa river. Blow the expense and just do it!

This restaurant rivals testuya for me without the testuya price tag, beautiful dishes that have so much depth.. Service is amazing, I will definitely be back. The food was that good I didn't even think about taking photos

The food here is quite ridiculously good. Flavour, presentation, quality, you can't fault it. Expensive though. The restaurant itself isn't as nice as next door at Ricky's but it's still in a fine position looking over the river. Very, very worthwhile a visit.

Description
Wasabi restaurant & bar, overhanging the scenic Noosa River, opposite the Noosa Recreation Reserve, is the brainchild of owner and Young Restaurateur of the Year Award recipient Danielle Gjestland. The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Voted Queensland's #1 regional restaurant for the 2015 Good Food Guide, awarded two chefs hats, listed in Gourmet Travellers top 100 restaurants, and voted Queensland's Hottest Restaurant in the Australians Hot 50 List, Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.
