After waiting for a spot to sit for 30 minutes, we sat at the bar where we were told service could be much faster. Beverages and a salad came within minutes. As for our sushi, 45 minutes later it arrived. Had there not been a ballgame on tv we wanted to watch, we would have walked. When our food did... More

unprofessional, slow and rude! Would not go back if someone paid me. It took 2 hours from start to finish, didn't acknowledge our birthday, did not get the won ton soup or silverware we ordered! He expected a good tip and made that clear when he didn't even deserve a dime!

My wife and I went during a snow storm so it was really slow and it was just us at the grill, but the chef was a lot of fun and the food is great! The yum yum sauce is the bomb. We got the hibachi chicken and split it. They charge 5.95 to split it, but you still get... More

So I'm writing this review and debating to give it a 2. We eat out a lot and I have yet to eat at a decent hibachi show. This place wasn't very entertaining from the time we walked through the door. Bar service was slow and the drinks not impressive. Took forever for service and the show was horrible. The... More

The food prepares were very entertaining. I guess that is why the prices are high. You pay for what you get and we got what we expected.

Good food but I'm not sure it lives up to the hype or the price. This is definitely very expensive for Lynchburg. You can choose from hibachi "flying shrimp" style or more traditional Japanese fare at tables and booths.

The food was awsome, they cook the food on an open flame in front of you, great fun when you have a group of people and the chef is very entertaining!!!

The food is good, but overpriced. Portions feel a bit small too, which contributes to the overpriced feeling. Probably worth visiting during their 1/2 off sushi specials. Otherwise you're better off at the more take-out oriented Asian restaurants in Lynchburg (Oishii, Osaka, Terriyaki House).

I have been eating at Wasabi in Lynchburg on and off for a year or so. I spent five years as a waitress in other restaurants and therefore understand the expectation of customer service on the part of diners in a restaurant. I also understand the challenges of providing good customer service. About 2 weeks ago on 10/9/16 I attempted... More
