It was same taste as real Japanese restaurant in Japan. I think No.1 Japanese sushi restaurant in Roanoke. Waitress was very kindly and smiley (^^). I took sake that never had in Japan was good smell and taste.

Chose Wasabi's at random after a walk from hotel. Had some sushi and noodle dishes, all quality dishes, nicely presented and very tasty. Prices were very good value compared to the same offerings in bigger cities.

Coming from California, Japanese restaurants are plentiful. Traveling to Roanoke, Virginia, we stumbled upon Wasabi Japanese Restaurant at Market Square in Downtown Roanoke.
