    Wasabi Bistro serves the finest Japanese food outside Japan….in fact, I’ve eaten at restaurants IN Japan that aren’t as good. Not only is the food delicious, but the service is impecable and the location and ambiance are calm and welcoming. Wasabi Bistro is one of our most favorite restaurants, anywhere. BZ!

    Wasabi Bistro is a hidden gem in Honolulu. The restaurant itself is elegant simplicity, and it is much like one might find in an alley in Tokyo or Kyoto. We felt transported to Japan when we stepped inside. The service is excellent. The classic Japanese menu has selections to satisfy any true aficionado of Japanese dishes. I personally selected: One small bowl of white rice, 2 hamachi nigiri, one saba and one maguro; agadashi Tofu; and shrimp tempura makimono. I've a small appetite. All were perfect.

    Definitely a hidden gem in Waikiki! The food did not disappoint for our party of 5. Everything we tried was delicious. The restaurant is small and cozy but did not feel cramped or overcrowded. The food was fresh and tasty. Our waitress was helpful and the food came out quickly. Definitely will return!

    Quite possibly the freshest sushi we’ve ever had. Delicious! Also enjoyed the baked oyster dish and the butterfish. Try the sake sampler to get a sense of taste and smoothness at different price points. Would give 10 stars if I could!
