Wanted a break from burgers/pizzas and decided to try this. Udon is nice and spongy the way we like it. BBQ short ribs were delicious and the servers were helpful and friendly.

Honestly I was little hesitant dining here as sushi at tourist places can be questionable BUT after dining my hesitations were non-existent. Terminator was good spicy roll. Good choices for sake so we went through 2 x 300ml bottles. They also have some sake available in 720ml size. Seaweed salad was refreshing. Sashimi combo with 3 variety was as expected... More

The only thing memorable of the occasion was the Agedashi Tofu and the salad dressing. Otherwise, it was a lackluster experience. Overpriced for the food, but the server was polite. Sorry I can't say much better about it than that. It was a disappointing dinner.

Was surprised that they served ramen. It was pretty good. They only have one kind which was ok. We were satisfied with the shrimp tempura, sashimi and chicken teriyaki that we ordered. Servers were attentive. They had outdoor seating which was good at night as the park closes. One can people watch while enjoying the food. It was also affordable... More

This is the only sushi place on the City Walk and the food is good considering it's in a theme park. Wait time's can be long, especially at peak hours and peak season because the park is bustling! Cool yourself off with some decent sushi, attentive and polite service and you won't be disappointed.

Gracious service and lovely sushi rolls in a nice atmosphere. Had it been warmer we would have dined outdoors. Prompt service and friendly.

We had lunch and dinner here during our trip. We stayed at the Universal Hilton, so it was more than convenient to take the shuttle over to the city walk and grab a bite to eat. Wasabi, was surprising good. We ordered the sashimi platter and tonkatsu for lunch. There was nothing left on the plates. It was very tasty.... More

Located at the citywalk at Universal Studio, wasabi service fresh sashimi and sushi, plus other Japanese Food to satisfy your palette. I specially enjoyed the wagyu steak, Hamachi and Hotate sashimi which was so fresh. Service was great. Although the setting is not that formal, but Japanese.Highly recommended.

This place has lots of fish at the counter as you walk in and the menu is full of very nice combinations. Lots of spicy options too for the adventurists. Service is efficient and quick. Would recommend stopping by.
