Wasabi Bistro - Honolulu
Hamachi Wasabi Carpaccio
Baked Scallop Special
Scallops and Mushrooms over our "Dynamite Rice" Creamy & Spicy!
Nice restaurant with great food. Be ready to pay high prices you normally would find in a fancy / luxury restaurant. Menu was limited. Great sushi! The place reminded me more of a shokudo than a restaurant.
Awesome food and wonderful service! Appetizers filled me up, delicious! Attentive manager and waitstaff, hard working, communicative and made good recommendations. Will come back to support this local business. Mahalo
The restaurant is small but cozy. The service is above the excellent. The mix tempura is very light and crispy. They have butter fish which is rare and melting in your mouth. The Omakase $80 is normal compares to Waikiki. But it is Nigiri style which is very small and about 10 pieces. I think it is might not be enough with good appetizer.
Fabulous find. Small and intimate with amazingly good food and great service. We started with Ahi sushi and veggie tempura and both were among the best ever. For a main course we had two of their three baked specialties - seafood baked I’m a mango shell and the scallop and mushroom bake. Both were unusual and excellent. We finished up with their “cake” - a confection with thin layers of pastry layered with a light cream frosting. The homemade ice cream trio was also unique with mango, salted caramel and black sesame ice cream medallions coated with a chewy compatibility-flavored “crust”. Overall a great find and a superb meal.
I visited several times to times to this Japanese restaurant, and I always satisfied with manner for customers, atmosphere, and so on.
Tucked away in The Breakers Hotel across the street from Lahaina Shave Ice, this gem was such a great find! Amazing service & ambiance. The food was more than amazing.
We had our three year old with us who wanted to stay in her stroller. They let us roll it right up to the table and provided cute shatter-proof pink dining set for her to enjoy her udon.
👌 yellowtail carpaccio, sashimi salad, spicy tuna on crispy prawn chip, regular sushi and cut roll assortment, uni sushi.
Average food, kind service. Not what we were expecting.
The service was excellent as well as the food and the sushi chefs were very friendly and very informative. The only negative was that they did not have much of a selection of raw shellfish as their regularly scheduled Thursday delivery from Japan was not made due to transportation issues. Their sushi cold case is recessed-in-the-counter style that makes it difficult to see what's available. I prefer the display-type cold cases so you can ask "What's that?"
The experience at this restaurant was super lovely. The service is fantastic, friendly, personable. The food is delicious and simple. I loved it
Great food at Wasabi Bistro. So good that we went a second time in the same week. The papaya seafood dish is amazing.
We have enjoyed Wasabi Bistro for years. I really enjoy this space which looks and feels like I am outdoor, but still get the a/c. We enjoy their food and get what we expect. Staff is super on it and friendly in a very cordial way.
We had to wait 20 mins before we were seated even though we had reconfirmed our reservation. The restaurant did apologize for the delay. The sashimi of eight kinds of fish was good. They ran out of Japanese steamed vegetables. The baked papaya with seafood was a pleasant find not common in other Oahu restaurants
Fantastic food and wonderful service. This cute little sushi bar is tucked away in Waikiki but out of the hustle and bustle you would expect when visiting Waikiki. A true hidden gem.
Great funky spot. Food really well done.
Outstanding food! Outstanding service!
Excellent food in an amazing setting. Feels like you’re in Japan.
The food, and the dining experience were fantastic!
The staff were friendly, helpful, and flexible. The drinks, even from the happy hour menu, were good, and the food was phenomenal.
The one qualm is that it certainly not the most cost effective restaurant. I’d say worth the price, but plan on paying for the enjoyment.
This is probably some of the very best nigiri in Waikiki. It is expensive (over $200 for two people with a bottle of Sake) but really really good
Wasabi Bistro is a delightful dining experience in Waikiki area. The food is innovative and elegant, the service is serene. A perfect place to enjoy Japanese food amidst the hustle and bustle of Honolulu.
We went on Monday night for dinner and it was so good we came back again on Tuesday. We look forward to dining at Wasabi Bistro again in the future.
Wow! Perfection, service and food.
Incredible hidden gem in Waikiki. Great attentive service. We had the Hamachi Carpaccio, the regular sashimi plate with 5 kinds, Baked Scallop and Misoyaki Butterfish. No complaints....
It’s great surprise. Great food with great value and will definitely try again. The decor is very traditional Japanese with protection for COVID-19.
Beyond amazing! Dishes met all expectations and we ordered some twice! Hamachi carpaccio is soooo good! Very friendly and professional staff. We will gladly return!
They didn’t have oysters this time, but that made us order everything else! Yep, we’re greedy and can’t get enough of this place. Not pictured are the chicken karaage and hamachi carpaccio. You just can’t go wrong with anything on their menu! My favorite must have is the sashimi salad!
We really enjoy the dinner! Sushi was very authentic Japanese style:)
Wasabi Bistro was outstanding ! We loved every minute of our experience. So ono!!
The staff were very nice and accommodating. Top notch service and food.
Fresh sushi very delicious
I felt like I was back in Tokyo with this tucked away gem of a restaurant- you need to have the yellowtail nigiri and the scallop signature
If you like traditional Japanese food, this is one of the finest and very authentic. We had dinner here on Saturday and had the two specials. They were the Kauai fresh shrimp and the steak tartar. Both were excellent. We also had the Otoro and the tuna sushi.
Both melted in your mouth and were very fresh. They were out of the sake brand we usually order, but our server recommended a different brand form Yamagata, Japan. It was vert smooth. Tasted like sweet water! The staff here is very good. The restaurant is very clean and very safe. We highly recommend making a reservation as it is not a very large place.
Wonderful traditional Japanese food. Lovely and minimal atmosphere.
I haven’t had a meal this delicious (flavor was outstanding) in a long time. The menu has several original dishes and everything is reasonably priced.
It's slightly hard to locate, but, well worth the find! The restaurant keeps patrons safe with plexiglass dividers between each table. We are going to visit once more before Honolulu trip ends! Freshest sashimi we ever tasted in our lives!
Best place we’ve been to for as long as we can remember. Not just the food and ambiance, but the service was outstanding and our waitress elevated the whole experience! Can’t wait to go back!
I've been here on O'ahu a week, and have splurged on nice dinners most nights. This is unequivocally the best meal I've had so far. The Crispy Rice Chips with Spicy Tuna were absolutely delicious, and it just got better from there. The sushi was perfectly sized, beautiful and tasty, and my god the Lady M cake (tip: pair it with the Salted Caramel Mochi). Last but so important: the tea. Tea can make or break a sushi experience for me, and the green tea they served was absolutely some of the best I've ever had.
I'm definitely going to be back at least a couple more times in my remaining week here on O'ahu. You should join me!
Best sushi around. Great variety-not just the avetage sauce-laden rolls. Fresh fish with little dressing up involved. Fantastic service too. Great place to relax with a group.
Incredible food and service!
Authentic experience, incredible food. Fresh fish. A touch off the main drag in Waikiki, which is a GOOD THING! We love sushi, would highly recommend!
I was craving for Sushi badly that day and Wasabi Bistro satisfied my craving!
