Very very loud, youthful atmosphere. Having eaten sushi in some of Japans finest places this joint sure is not what you would find in Japan. The sushi is good, expect a lot of Americanized style, ie rolls, deep fried , heavy sauces. It is also quite loud, to carry on a conversation you have to almost yell at each other... More

This is a great place to go when you're in the mood for delicious Japanese food and friendly service. The food is prompt, the place is colorful, and its full of energy because of the younger people and business crowd it seems to attract. Excellent location and easy to find. Colorful atmosphere. It's fun and uncomplicated.

Near TGIFridays on Herndon, the late hours make this really nice. They have a full sushi bar that wraps around and can seat many. The fish was fresh and the appetizer soft shell crab was very good. The price was reasonable. I will go back.

We were at the Fig Wassabi. Our server was Angel and she truly was, so rare to have a fully engaged and pleasant server. Seems like we tried an encompassing cross section of the menu and they were all really tasty an beautifully prepared. An added treat is their creative and great drinks. I especially recommend the adult kool aid... More

Used to go here at least once a week. Now its hard to even get my rolls tight and the fish does not taste as fresh. I'm debating to even try it ever again. Sad.

We decided to try Wassabi on our way to Costco this week. They had a great lunch special with many options all priced at $10. The ones we chose came with miso soup. The box special came with a salad ( the yummiest salad dressing - I wish I knew the brand) I choose chicken teriyaki, spicy California roll, and... More

Whenever I go to Fresno, I go to Wassabi. Their fish is always fresh, and the wait staff is always attentive. I like the edamame appetizer, gyoza, and the salmon skin roll. The restaurant gets a little loud with the music, but as it is geared more towards the college age crowd, I understand. Hard to pass up the good... More

I haven't been here in about one year. They have changed their menu and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Presentation is excellent and I really enjoyed my roll. I will definitely return.

Very average. I feel no pull to go back. The food was not bad but it was a bit low on the authentic taste count. Service was friendly and not bad. Went on a sunday evening. There were a couple of other guests. Not expensive. Nothing exceptional.
