    Had a great dinner--the brussels sprouts starter and the crab roll were particularly delicious! We drove about 40 miles each way to the restaurant and it was well worth it. We will be going to Wasabi more often ...

    Not a good experience. I really liked the other Wasabi restaurants, so wanted to try this one. Food was good - what we got. Server didn’t put in our starter or one of our rolls, then never checked to see if we needed anything.

    Enjoyed trying different foods - created a sampler of different thing as an appetizer for the table. The chef had fun assembling a selection. Our entrée choices were varied and each of us thought our's was great.

    It was a Mother’s Day dinner and we had great sushi and drinks. Music was a little loud. The curry noodles were a bit sweet for our liking but overall the other food was fantastic! If you go you must have the kimchi fried rice!

    Service was good. My concern is they go way overboard with the sweetness level of the food. The seafood curry was as sweet as a dessert. I'm used to Asian food being balanced between the levels of sweet, spicy, salty, etc.

    Restaurants are under immense stress and I appreciate Wasabi’s consistently good quality food throughout. Even when a tiny hiccup happens on that rare occasion, they’ve always made it right for us and last night was no exception. I’ll be back for more of their delicious Ramen and sushi.

    Great ambiance and the service was excellent. They don't have a great variety of rolls which was a little disappointing. There's a large handful of them but they're all pretty similar with the exception of one or two ingredients. Definitely recommend the brussel sprouts. They were delicious!

    Third visit in the past two months, very consistent, wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. Food was, once again, excellent, and attractively presented; service was friendly and efficient, though one oddity was our Server spoke in the third person - "are we ready to order", "should we clear these plates", etc., no biggie but kind of quirky with each interaction. Good looking dining room. Appreciated the hand sanitizer on each table. Font on the menu is tiny, could do a nicer job with menu presentation for easier reading especially in dimmer lighting. Good selection of specialty cocktails, wines by the glass program could use some attention and variety. Overall, great local spot, dependable, please run some Chef's Specials to try out some new menu items. Thanks.

    Food an environment we’re good. Wasn’t please when I looked closer at my receipt and found a re-Corking fee for the wine bottle. Although the waitress asked, she didn’t explain costs. The cost of re-corking was $11 and all she did was push the cork in with her thumb. It wasn’t a sealed bag like other places do it. Next time pay me $11 to push my own cork in. I get the rules and laws, but don’t ask me and then just shove the cork in with your thumb in front of me and charge me money.

    Wasabi in Prairie Trail in Ankeny is an upscale restaurant featuring a sushi bar as well as a full-service bar serving cocktails, wine, beer and saki. The modern facility with both high top tables and booths hip décor and large TVs over the bar. The decorative live edge wood planks along a back lit wall was imaginative, beautiful and different. I was impressed with the Oriental beers available including Japanese beers, expected in a sushi restaurant, as well as Chinese Tsingtao and Thai Singha. Edamame always goes well with drinks and the steamed soy beans were properly steamed with the appropriate amount of salt. Wasabi lists another appetizer as pan fried pork dumplings otherwise known as gyoza, the Japanese pot sticker. 6 dumplings were served with a soy-vinegar dipping sauce, the skins were thin as they should be and the filling moist and tasty. For our next course we ordered some nigiri sushi. The tuna and salmon sushi served with the traditional ginger and wasabi showed this restaurant really knows what it is doing. The fish was of a very high quality and extremely fresh while the rice underneath was just perfectly prepared and not excessive. Since we had never eaten here before we were reluctant to devote the entire meal to sushi but I assure you on our next visit it will be sushi all the way, that is if I can convince my wife not to order the grilled salmon teriyaki. The salmon teriyaki was perfectly prepared, a large moist portion of very fresh salmon that my wife declared as the best salmon teriyaki she had ever eaten, quite a compliment from a salmon lover. I ordered the Yaki Niku Beef, described on the menu as char-grilled beef with seasoned vegetables with yaki niku sauce. The dish was served on an oval cast iron plater sitting on an oval wooden tray that more resembled how fajitas are served. The yaki niku sauce is slightly sweet and while the beef was tender the vegetables were somewhat mushy. Although that dish was tasty, there are so many other in
