Took the family - its still the best. We had the 3 course dinner and the tastes were varied and great. My brother was amazed. Good value and fabulous. Go early to see the sunset

Please ensure you go here, the food, service, views are sublime. We had the 7 course degustation menu. My favourite was the venison. Everything dish exploded with flavour. Well done to all the staff for your passion to ensure that all customers have an amazing experience. Love the take home booklet as well.

Our dinner was a delightful experience. It was a beautiful meal of subtle differences. Our waterfront table was perfection and the food and service was impeccable.

We were really looking forward to enjoying a dining experience at Wasabi. I made a booking a month in advance specifically requesting a table by the window with normal seating (including 3 pregnant women). When we arrived they sat us in the Tatami Room which was the only table available. They were unable to accommodate our initial request. The service... More

We had a table by the water and opted for the 7 course degustation for $140 per head. Mostly seafood and vegetables with one meat and one desert dish. 7 courses was quite a lot of food so we were happy we did not select the 9 course degustation. With a bottle of champagne the total bill for two was... More

Based on what I'd heard and read, I was expecting much better than we got. The food tasted bland and some dishes tasted not fresh at all. I found Wasabi so disappointing and pretentious. The yaki-onigiri in the large pot with twigs and bushes was lame. The service and river-side setting are the only positives.

Went to dinner with some friends on a Saturday night. Decided on the 9 course menu and was not disappointed. All courses were well balanced and progressed well from one to the next. Whilst the courses were each small, everyone at the table was very satiated by the end. Ripper palate cleanser towards the end. Tried something new with mandarin... More

Great service but everything else was a let down. The food was bland and underwhelming. The edamames were the worst I've had. For the very expensive price you pay you expect much better quality and flavours.

Wasabi is, quite simply, perfection. You may have to mortgage the house to trot along for a feed, but it's worth it. We had not been there for a few years and were captivated by the new a la carte menu : three courses each (at $85.00 a head) which resulted in six delish dishes to share. Our favourite was... More

A beautiful venue and a great sunset if you arrive early enough. A very knowledgeable and pleasant waitress. Quite a good wine list. The sashimi was one of the freshest that we'd had in quite a while, absolutely delicious. All other dishes were equally as good. Walked out feeling sufficiently full but still light which, was great. A must do... More

Description
Wasabi restaurant & bar, overhanging the scenic Noosa River, opposite the Noosa Recreation Reserve, is the brainchild of owner and Young Restaurateur of the Year Award recipient Danielle Gjestland. The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Voted Queensland's #1 regional restaurant for the 2015 Good Food Guide, awarded two chefs hats, listed in Gourmet Travellers top 100 restaurants, and voted Queensland's Hottest Restaurant in the Australians Hot 50 List, Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.
