Despite an extensive menu, we as regulars have our favourite go to dishes. The “Springbok Carpaccio” served with rocket, grated parmesan and white chocolate, with a balsamic reduction is the perfect starter.

The Spinach and Cheese Dim Sum is a definite hit with my sons and something we order regularly.

The Poke Fire is outstandingly delicious and can be served as an appetizer or as a main. You can expect sliced tuna, olive oil, lemon juice, red onion, sesame seeds and cayenne pepper. The dish packs a punch with explosions of flavour in every mouthful.

The Peking Duck is another dish worth trying. While it is possibly the best Peking Duck I’ve ever tasted, it costs a pretty penny. Consider it as a meal for a special occasion should it not meet your budget.

Best Sushi in Joburg 2019

Wasabi won the award for Best Sushi in Joburg 2019 by the Best of Joburg Reader’s Choice Awards. I have in fact been saying this since I started frequenting the place since its opening. The sushi is unique and truly outstanding. The South Africa twist infused in the sushi is an absolute win. For a taste of the best pf both ask for the Tiger VS Dragon and thank me later.

All the drama

Wasabi Sushi & Grill is all about the drama. Dramatic oversized chandeliers, menu explanations from tablets that will activate your taste-buds ensures dining with them is a complete experience. Bursts of flames as steaks are flambéed, gin trolleys that roll by and an irresistible cake table.
