I went there for about 5 times.. It's a little bit pricey therefore it worth every penny.. Quality of the seafood and the raw fishes are excellent.. you just can taste it.. The sashimi and sushi are the best in town.. try the seafood platter.. best scallop I ever taste.. The only downside is the location.. It's a little bit hard to reach and it's not a fancy location.. old building.. but.. once you go inside, the japanese ambiance pays off the journey..

I can't tell you about the Sushi there, because I didn't have any. At a quick glance, it seemed overpriced but there was quite a bit of variety...
With that said, The REST of the menu is amazing. We stayed in Abu Dhabi for 3 nights, and dined at Wasabi for 3 meals. The menu has authentic Japanese cuisine, that you won't find anywhere else in the middle east. I highly recommend the Kakuni Pork (With all the fat,) and maybe even a bento box. The Ramen was also amazing there. Truth be told, Wasabi is one of the Main Reasons I go to Abu Dhabi, since I live in Saudi Arabia. Hope this helps!

I don't usually write reviews on restaurants or hotels, but I feel obliged to this time.

Some other International friends and I felt like Japanese food one night in Abu Dhabi and one of the few choices was Wasabi.

I'll cut straight to the point. The menu is way overpriced, the quality of the sushi when finally delivered to the table was very poor to the point of being inedible and the serving sizes were terribly small. Everyone at the conclusion of their "meals" was dying to just get out of there and go to a better restaurant.

The service was also terrible. Not once did the waitress visit us "voluntarily" without actually being "fetched".

I would not recommend Wasabi to anyone and will never be eating there again.

Wasabi is pretty much the best sushi place in Abu Dhabi, while this shouldn't really say much (Abu Dhabi has a lot of great Indian and Lebanese restaurants but not very much else) it really is a cut above.

The menu at Wasabi is very similar to the one at it's sister restaurant Toki, they are a little more relaxed and just a tiny bit more cost effective, either way price wise both restaurants are quite expensive and being situated in hotels they also throw taxes and service charges on top of your bill. Still it's one of the few places where (if you're willing to pay the bill) you can chill out with better than average sushi and a bottle of Asahi!
