Best Japanese on Bedford Ave, best and freshest sushi around, good prices – i must admit that i was shocked to read all of the negative reviews about Wasabi, as this has to be my favorite Japanese restaurant of all time, in NYC or outside of NYC. It's not a sophisticated (flashy) place, it's just good, fresh food. OH, and they have BROWN RICE, which is cool
Vegitarians - sorry, but maybe you should find a Veggie ONLY place, if you are that picky
Nice staff and good food – After reading some of the nasty reviews I feel compelled to respond. I've eaten at Wasabi maybe 15 to 20 times. The staff has always been very nice and attentive. The food was fresh and served quickly. Is this place a 5 star japanese restaurant- no. But it's prices also aren't outrageous and the food is good.
I just felt I needed to counter the negative posting(s) that seem to be written by the same person who clearly has some ax to grind.
Worst attitude, service and sushi – Don't bother, there are so many other worthwhile places.
The waiters/waitresses act as if they're doing you a favor by waiting on you. Sushi quality is low-grade, no real Japanese esthetic and propriety. When you have to load up on the WASABI to mask the lack of freshness of the sushi then you need ask for your money back. You'd do better with one of those conveyer belt sushi places.
DO NOT GO... – DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT....EAT AT WASABI. THE SUSHI WAS TERRIBLE AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF I SAW TWO RODENTS RUN OUT FROM THE KITCHEN WHEN I WAS LEAVING. THEY WERE AS BIG AS CATSS....NAUSEOUS AS I AM TYPING!
great sushi – This is some of the freshest sushi I've had in NYC. The waitstaff is attentive and the prices are quite reasonable. As far as I can tell most of the negative reviews here are due to their non-vegetarian-friendly menu. Don't expect a whole lot of California-style sushi; this place is more traditional. For those who are meat-eaters, or for those who just want delicious basic sushi, I highly recommend Wasabi.
Better than before. – I hadn't been to Wasabi for a while and just moved back to Williamsburg. I was very pleasantly surprised by how fresh the fish was. Great outdoor seating, too.
The worst service in the 'Burg – Order veggie soup and they delivered beef. So we called and they accused us as being liars!
So we brought the soup back over and asked again for a refund or a replacement, and again the hostess accused us of ordering the beef even though we're both strict vegetarians. I couldn't believe they would accuse us of lying in front of other customers, and after we had walked all the way over.
Good Enough For Me – Having just moved from the village to Williamsburg I was a little concerned about my new food choices -- especially delivery and the ability to satisfy a sushi fix.
I've eaten there once and had delivery several times. No, it isn't Nobu. It is totally fine and acceptable sushi and the previous two entries seem to be slammig the place out of some sort of vendetta.
You could do much worse.
BAD for vegetarians – I ordered a delivery of vegetable gyoza. They delivered meat instead. Unfortunately, I did not know this and ate them before my friend realized that hers were not vegetable. When I called to ask for a refund, the manager was VERY RUDE and argumentative. I explained that I had not eaten meat in 11 years and he said, "So, what do you want me to do? You should have known."
HORRIBLE service. Wilted lettuce in the salad. The miso soup was bland. Go to other area Japanese restaurants like the one on North Sixth.
don't do it – the sushi wasn't good at all, and couldn't even satisfy my craving. i'd sooner eat deli pre-packaged sushi.
to make matters worse, a vegan friend was recently served PORK dumplings. for shame. never again.
