Wasabi Bistro Hawaii is one of the Honolulu’s casual dining, with an atmosphere of relaxing out-house theme. The restaurant was founded in 1992 as one of the Japanese restaurants in Oahu as a hidden spot, for family and friends to gather, and it has been treasured for many years.

Subtly decorated with exquisite Japanese art and artifacts, the dining areas have been designed to offer guests the utmost privacy. Enjoy a front row seat at the sushi bar and watch the intricate handwork of our master chef, as he displays his skills in the art of sushi making.

    The first lady served us was not so pleasant nor friendly. We wrote that we're in Honeymoon, so hoped we can seated in somewhere comfortable, but they gave us the seat right next to the entrance, which is not a comfortable place to seat, so we had to ask her to change our seat. However, the lady served us later(pregnant) was superb, bless her heart and her baby. Food was okay, fish wasn't super fresh but still edible, wish a place like this wouldn't use fake-crab meat; come on, it's Island, can't you find any "real" crab meat?!

    This is sushi the way it is meant to be served. No bells, no whistles - it’s all about the fish (and the rice) - down to the perfect texture and temperature and proportions. Some of the best sushi I have had anywhere - in a great, little unassuming room. The kitchen was good too (tempura and teriyaki chicken) but the star of the show was the sushi. We’ll be back!

    Always an enjoyable experience when we get to eat at Wasabi Bistro. We really like the food. Sushi is always our favorite, as well as the tempura (shrimp & vegetable). Service was good, not very noisy inside at all.

    We wanted to try this quiet special place during our anniversary as yelp people is recommending. The sushi & sashimi set was perfect, the beef sashimi ( not on the menu ) melted my month. However Their special #1 and the pineapple boat I don’t like it as much, not worthy it for 2 little seafood grilled for approx $30 The worst is we gave tips based on our experiences the host was nice but the manager in front like in his temper when we entered, literally, no smile at all and then yelling at us when we left because we didn’t give a big tip :( disappointing at the end about the service, which ruin our anniversary Hawaii trip

    Good: - the sushi is fresh and delicious. Small portions so you have to keep ordering. - outstanding service. Not so good: - restaurant is small and ambient is just average. - you have to make reservations ahead of time.

    The food was really great and service was strong, but the restaurant is very hot and made for not the most comfortable dining experience. If they get their cooling situation figured out, it would be a place I’d recommend to anyone looking for great Japanese food in Waikiki.

    I didn’t know what to expect with this location being inside the Breakers as we walked by people on loungers by the pool getting to this place but the food was excellent. Fish was very fresh and the hot appetizers excellent especially the butter fish. The AC was not working properly so that wasn’t optimal. Service was attentive and friendly. Food came out very quickly which was a pleasant surprise. Good spot and I would recommend.

    We are a family of 5 and went here during our last night in Honalulu. It was by far one of the best sushi places we had been to. The quality of the food was amazing, and the fish was so fresh. The food itself was so delicious everyone ordered more and more. The food came pretty fast as well. On top of that, the waitstaff and the owners were genuinely the nicest people ever. They were so kind and helpful and we really enjoyed our experience here. Our waitress was so kind and super sweet. After eating from dozens of sushi restaurants, this place tops the list. We had a great experience and we wish we had time to dine here again. Big thanks to the owners and staff here for making our night so great. Mahalo!! We will for sure be coming back here during our next trip to Hawaii. Also, the hamachi wasabi sashimi is a must have!
