This resturant has a serious lack of poor hygiene! After my meal, I went to freshen up in the bathroom. The only wash sink is situated in-between the ladies and male toilet and is for use by both sexes. However, one of the cooking staff failed to wash his hand after he used the toilet!!

Poor service and quite rude staff!

Had an excellent lunch at Wasabi, and will definitely return. The menu was varied, offering good choices for all, nice to see some good vegetarian options. Friendly and efficient service.

The seats are benches, there is no privacy or indeed much space between tables or 'stations', and there is one toilet facility per sex with a single shared sink which resides opposite the main kitchen. There are many awkward loo run dalliances where ladies are queuing and hand washers are subject to intense scrutiny by onlookers.
The menu is very old fashioned in appearance, with poor images of unappetisng food. At a glance the menu looks vast, but it is basically the same items repeated featuring certain variations. Simplify.
You cannot order tap water, only expensive bottles, Food is bland and impossible to eat unless you are practised in the art of chop stick use. Staff make you feel silly for ordering a fork, and are mainly elusive during the meal.
Lots of deep fried dishes on a menu with the potential to be healthy. Not impressed.

A lovely surprise as this restaurant is far bigger than it appeared from the outside. The atmosphere is casual but cozy with a nice feel. The decor was pleasingly oriental. The service was prompt and friendly. We ordered two different seafood type noodle soups and they were delicious and the aromatic smell was heavenly. We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. The two dinners with two drinks came to £22 which was very good value for money. Will definitely go to another Wasabi again.

It was a surprise when I enter in the restaurant. From outside it looks like a normal chinese take away that you don't want to come in, but inside is totally different. It looks like a normal restaurant with friendly staff.

In regards to the food I ate some sushi makis and it wasn't the best sushi I ever ate, but it is good.

I think it worth a visit.
