Wasabi is the first place I went to dine downtown after The Alley was complete. I was blown away by the combination of delicious, authentic (I lived in Okinawa 8 yrs & Hawaii 7), very visually appealing dishes, fast & friendly service, cleanliness & setup/layout, AND prices that actually shocked me! Granted, I took advantage of their military discount, but I almost felt bad, it was so affordable/inexpensive, esp for what I got & enjoyed so much. Chose it as my place to go when a group of coworkers/friends took me out to eat, & every one of them said they loved it & would be back...w/ one of them taking her husband there only a day or two later! Also recommended it to my daughter for a pre-event dinner downtown w/ her boyfriend, &they both loved it & have also been back since. Now I have a standing wkly lunch date w/ a good friend, & Wasabi is the default go-to place! Been there now countless times & have never been disappointed, so countless more times to come! :-)
My husband and I ate there on a Friday afternoon and had the baked chicken, fish, cabbage, corn, and homemade peach cobbler and chocolate cake. The food was outstanding along with the service. The peach cobbler was delicious, delicious, and did I say delicious. This is definitely going to be my regular spot.
