Food and ambience

The only 2 hat restaurant in Noosa, Wasabi restaurant & bar overhangs the scenic Noosa River, opposite the Noosa Recreation Reserve. The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Voted Queensland's #1 regional restaurant for the Good Food Guide, awarded two chefs hats, listed in Gourmet Travellers top 100 restaurants, and voted the Hottest Regional Restaurant in the Australians Hot 50 List, Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.

The food for the most part is sourced locally, and the food is made to traditional japanese methods. From the moment you arrive at the restaurant, the experience starts. Everything is on point and attention to detail is excellent. The internal of the property is...More

Dear Odyssey09848923120 (anonymous person) I almost didn't bother responding to this review as it seems so ridiculous. I did however think that others might read it and thought I at least owed it to them to address your points but first ..... are you sure...More

Wasabi is a glorious dark space, delicate lights and darkly dressed wait staff who seem to glide silently. There are several ways to eat here with a couple of menus, one of 7 courses, one of 4, and a chef's choice. No A la carte....More

We last visited this restaurant when they were in Sunshine Beach and whilst we are frequent visitors to Noosa, we had not managed to venture to their current location of 9 years. With many good reviews we were thoroughly looking forward to our night out...More

The degustation was nice, not wonderful but nice. It was very expensive for what it was especially when compared with somewhere like Spice Bar and even Sydney restaurants like Toko whose degustation is cheaper and far superior. The decor is a little daggy and there...More

I have been here a few times over the last 5 years, and it is consistently excellent food. Had the degustation and it did not disappoint, great wine list too. A great venue for a special occasion in Noosa.
