About

Wasabi Sabi in Winnipeg, Manitoba provides a fantastic sushi dining experience. Everything about the eatery is special from the modern looking décor and the cozy atmosphere to the fantastic food offered on the menu. Some of the raw specialties you might want to try include the fresh oysters, tuna tataki, red tuna carpaccio and the salmon carpaccio.

Wasabi Sabi has some tasty starters, too, such as the edamame, seared tuna salad and the black garlic scallops. Naturally, you can find plenty of fantastic sushi options on the menu, too. However, Wasabi Sabi has some hot specialties, as well. Consider the Wagyu beef, spicy king crab and the soft-shell crab.

A little pricey or we would be here weekly! Great ambience, never busy at lunch but always need reservations for dinner if you want a table.

Definitely will return With other friends, highly recommend this restaurant! Great sashimi and sushi, nice service, romantic atmosphere. This is probably the best Japanese restaurant in Winnipeg! Online open table is so convenient, I left the message to them and said it's a private birthday meal, so find us somewhere quite, and they did it! We had a lot of fun here!

Once again Wasabisabi fails to disappoint...always delicious! MY friends and I make a point of meeting at least once a month to catch up and have a nice dinner. Wasabisabi is one of our go to places.

Wasabi's sushi is always so fresh and the presentation is beautiful. I am expecting and was pleased to see non-alcoholic beer on the menu as well as lots of options with cooked shrimp and vegetables.

I reserved a table for my birthday party and did not realize that they also have private rooms. Once I arrived and saw the room, I requested if we can move and have our party in the room instead. The staff was very nice and helpful. All the dishes were hot and yummy! Excellent service! I had the best BD party ever.

We waited at least 5 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us, would be acceptable if the restaurant wasn't dead (Jets game). We got out first dish "Yuzu Truffle Butterfish" and wanted to try with Soy Sauce- server nowhere to be found, flagged down another server. He brought it for us, then gave a snooty remark saying "we don't serve that with the butterfish". Sorry, don't really enjoy under the breath remarks about how to eat the food we pay for! We've been to restaurants where the server explains this is the way the chef wanted us to try it, but this particular server made us feel like we were incompetent and not worthy to eat at their restaurant.

Very over-priced for the amount of food. Presentation was fine, taste/flavours very good. Some gluten-free but limited. Service was good - prompt.

Nice for an occasion but have no plans to return.

The food is beyond outstanding. It tastes great and is appropriately priced for the most part. The drinks are expensive. The service needs to be faster....you'll probably end up waiting for 30 minutes before your food comes out...that's the only downside. The Mahalo roll is a must try on the menu!

Loved the alcove room with a round table. Like a private dinner party with our friends! Fabulous choices and delicious. Server was attentive but not intrusive.

My wife and I frequent Wasabisabi on Taylor quite often and truly enjoy the back room area and are accommodated with a nice table when we make reservations ahead. The menu is quite extensive but make sure to inquire about items which are not on the menu as there are often some real gems if you ask. I might suggest that they update or change their off menu specials...the Bob Marley Roll is excellent but has been the special roll for way too long. Maybe add to the primary menu. The Valentine's Day Specials were absolutely fantastic. We really enjoyed the Crunchy Lobster Roll with apple slices and the fried crab claws lightly breaded were wonderful with the cream sauce and well presented. My wife usually is not a crab fan but was really into these as an appetizer. For those that are not into the raw items, such as my wife...they have some excellent hot plate items. My wife raved about the Cashew peanut crusted chicken which she said was perfectly done and moist. I have been to many Sushi Restaurants from Vancouver to Montreal and would not hesitate to recommend this location as one of the very best for quality and taste. Andy is one of the best sushi chefs around.

Our experience was fantastic!!!!!! my husband doesn't eat sushi but I do. He had the beef plate which was simply fantastic he said and I had two rolls that were the best. Our waiter asked us to try an appetizer which was the tempura prawns with delicious sauce and that was amazing!!! I would like to book for February 14, 2015 if I can.

There are 3 friends who make a point of going out for sushi once a month. This is the spot we pick most. We all love the ambiance and especially the food. I was always convinced that Wasabi anywehre makes the best Bakudan Roll in the city of Winnipeg and now I have converted one of these friends to the same. Never disappointed.

Had a guest from out of town to entertain and impress and everything went well. The appetizers, main courses and drinks were all superb. It made for a wonderful evening and our knowledgeable guest expressed how impressed she was with the sushi. The restaurant is a bit loud but we knew what to expect.

Another excellent night out at Wasabi. Special roll was outstanding, mango shrimp was as usual excellent, mmmmm butter fish sashimi topped off with a couple of bottles of saki and a good time was had by all.

Second time at this restaurant, we had a great time. Great food, even for pregnant women who like sushi - vegetarian or with cooked seafood -. Might look a little expensive but worth it for the quality. We will go back.
