Description: Wasabi Restaurant was established on the 1st of April 2001 by Roy de Gouveia, since then it has evolved in so many ways, including 2 major renovations. The first in 2004 and the most recent in 2008. With the re-launch of the new Wasabi, we added a beautiful fireplace and the new Dim Sum section in the front of the restaurant. We have since evolved as a team and are doing the best to produce food at a consistently high level. Our focus has always remained sushi, our cooked food menu has definitely upped its game.

We have been coming to Wasabi for about seven years and have always found the sushi to be worth the money. This time however we had to constantly ask for our wine to be topped
up and were shocked to see the sushi had halved in size. We won't be back as the quality is not what it used to be. Got the feeling they were trying to save a buck!

What we hoped would be a very special dinner with our distinguished guest after he had driven hours to give a lecture, turned into a frustrating and embarrassing experience where everybody just wanted to get out of the restaurant.

When we asked our waiter about a recommendation for wine, he replied that he wasn't a red wine drinker and then clumsily searched the menu for a white that he could suggest. We waited for our food for about 45 minutes or longer and we couldn't figure out, since the restaurant was relatively quiet, what could possibly take that long.

There was no Gabrielskloof, weiss beer or "Wasabi Special" that was on the menu. The manager made no effort to compensate for any of the inconvenience and embarrassment in front of our guests.

When the food finally arrived, it was delicious and fresh. But the bitter taste of the experience was overwhelming. "Will you be paying cash/card?" Card, I guess...

Never, ever, ever again.

We shared our first meal as husband and wife at this stunning restaurant. We were surprised with some complimentary champagne which we shared with divine sushi starters. I had an absolutely delicious lamb shank, while my husband had a sushi platter. The chocolate dessert was heavenly, and we left feeling like we had been substantially fed. This restaurant is well loved by the locals and based in the area of Constantia. The prices are a little steep but definitely worth the experience.
