Went in before dinner time and I ordered a sushi roll and the shrimp teriyaki with fried rice, the food was flavorless and my bill was $40 with a tip...overpriced for blah food.

We have eaten sushi all over KC and this place is most like the NYC/South Florida sushi we are used to. It's really excellent and very fresh sushi.

Kind of slow service, but really good food. I was expecting something maybe more than just sushi but it was fresh.

Small place. Good food. Spring roles were ok. Wouldn't order again. Vegetable tempura had good batter, little greasy but good for America. (Lived in Japan for two years, kind of jaded). Sushi we had was fresh, great taste. Would not expect this from a strip mall sushi place but it was very good. Highly recommend it. Service was awesome. My... More

We visited on a Sunday evening and we're shocked to find out a Japanese restaurant was out of rice. They had sushi rice, but not enough of the other variety for a rice dish. Astonishing. Food they did have was pretty good, fresh lettuce, and quick service.

We'd heard good things about this place so we gave it a try and it was fantastic. Great deep fried sushi and very flavorful habacchi foods. Had the chicken and shrimp option with soup and salad and a sun roll and California roll. So delicious. Fast and friendly staff. Small space but great food.

The food here is great. Always fresh and tasty. I wish the sushi was a little bigger. Seems kinda small for the price but overall damn good!

We've eaten at Wasabi (near I-35 at exit 17) many times. Their sushi is the freshest in the northern part of KC. Salads and dressings are great. Tempura preparations are just right. The family owners are on site, and the restaurant is always inviting. Beer and wine available. Family-friendly. Prices are reasonable for fresh food.

You can just tell that the owners and all of their staff members have a passionate love for the customers, the local folks are loyal to WASABI. Many of the "foodies" were on first name bases with all of the staff !!!! Japanese Sushi Bar and Grill is the best authentic Japanese food I have ever tasted. They are known... More
