“Be Careful, It’s Highly Addictive! I can’t pass a week without going back to this place. Absolutely delicious food, friendly and prompt service and ridiculously affordable. Every time I go there I try something new, yet have never been disappointed. Ebi chili mayo, BBQ pork, teriyaki ribs, tuna wasabi mayo sashimi, NY steak sushi, torched salmon sushi and red snapper carppacio are all musts, perfect with some sake or sapporo. I bet I’ve forgotten other favorites, but all the ones I mentioned range between $6 – 8!!!”


“Great place for sushi and Japanese tapas! Unique and beautiful presentation, always fresh! Service is great too! Excellent drinks! ALWAYS good!!!”


“Fantastic! We keep going back! We love Wasabi Izakaya and have been there several times. This is a Japanese Fusion restaurant that serves in Tapas-style, so you can order more than one dish to share. We have tried a broad range of menu items and have not yet been disappointed with anything. The prices are comparable, service is great and all of the staff (including the chefs who do their magic within the seating area) are very friendly and welcoming.”


“We were pleasantly surprised at all the little unique dishes that you find here. Great tasty night out for sushi with a twist. We will be back.”


“It’s like a piece of Japan in Kelowna!”


“Surprisingly not like every other sushi place in town.”


“A little gem in Kelowna! Wasabi Izakaya has an interesting menu and everything we ate lived up to its billing, including their original dessert. The flavors were what I look for in good Japanese food but don’t always find – sublime, interesting, novel. The service was attentive and prompt, while also allowing us to enjoy our dinner at a leisurely pace. If we lived closer, we’d be regulars.”


“Your food is almost too beautiful to eat, but it tastes even better! The combination of flavours is exquisite and your menu is so creative- I hardly ever order the same thing twice.”


“Great! Kelowna needed a good authentic restaurant”.


“Very nice service and very delicious food. I would recommend Wasabi to my friends.”


“Great tasting, looks amazing. We will be back tomorrow for lunch/dinner.”
