2011-12-15 12:30:45   Went there last night, as my favorite local chinese place was closed. This place was a chinese buffet place, but this outfit has reburbed the whole inside-looks nice. I think they are still getting settled as our server was unsure of what accompanied hibachi (even though it's right on the menu) and he then said my dining mates could take home their leftover sushi, and then returned to say they could not. So, in the future, I would encourage my dining mates to only order a few rolls/nigiri at a time. Their eyes were bigger than their stomachs last night. We were the only people in the whole place, which was a little weird. Food was good! —LisaRuns

2012-01-16 13:57:23   they are open, must of had a false start —DamianKumor

2012-02-20 23:00:09   Tried this place for the first time last weekend, and I have to admit-I was extremely unimpressed. Not only did they have the audacity to charge us extra for the three left over pieces my husband and I failed to finish, the server seemed careless and preoccupied. Needless to say, don't bother. —KatherineLewis

2012-02-28 10:24:43   @KatherineLewis - this policy is stated on their menu, and it's not a very large charge ($1.00 / 4 pieces I think). @EileenF - because it is a set price for all you can eat sushi, they charge for leftover pieces. This is to discourage over-ordering, which costs them money.

My son and I go here every Sunday for lunch. I always get the all you can eat sushi lunch for $9.99. My son either gets a tempura dish off the menu or a $4.99 lunch special. We love it! —JoshVince

2012-03-03 12:46:44   My husband and I went to New Wasabi last night for the all you can eat sushi dinner and we had a great time. We were surprised that someplace so out of the way was so great, and it seems that no one knows about it. The staff was really attentive, the sushi and rolls were great! The salmon was amazing, it was soft like butter, sooo good. I felt bad that there weren't more people there on a Friday night. This place is absolutely a must for anyone who wants great sushi at an awesome price!! —LauraWood

2012-04-01 20:37:44   Went for dinner last Tuesday and while skeptical at first (the place was empty at 6:30) was pleasantly suprised by the food. Both of us did the all-you-can-eat sushi dinner for $16.99. The menu they give you comes with a dry erase marker, so you can specify how many of which items (nigiri/rolls, etc) you want. They also state the 4 uneaten pieces = $1 charge at the top of the menu, but as they are very specific how many pieces come with each item, and they encourage frequent re-orders, it's simple to not over order. Our server was very attentive, and came over whenever our platter was empty. The selection for the all-you-can-eat was limited to a set number of options, but definitely was enough for us. Would definitely become repetitive if you went every week, but is fine for the occaisional visit. They also brought us more miso soup when we asked, at no charge, and also gave us a suprise dessert at the end.

Next time we go I think I'll try the regular menu. Lots of yummy sounding specialty rolls, and all of the fish was very fresh, and high quality. —JBeez

2012-04-09 21:25:51   My wife and I tried the all you can eat Sushi lunch for $9.99. Started with the Miso soup which was OK, salad (iceberg lettuce with 6 or 7 pieces of purple cabbage on top and dressing) Thumbs down! Selection of Sushi is kind of small for the all you can eat ( about 10 different types of rolls) and they are the plain rolls. It took them a long time to get the rolls and when they arrived they were kind of dry and tasteless, tried some of the rice and it was just that, rice without any flavor. Next time I will pay more and get some good rolls from Fujiya just across the street. —Ricardo

2012-05-04 10:44:59   I have been here allot. First the servers have never been good, They hardly speek english, there rude, and just provide bad service. The food, is good and ok priced. the sushi chef is very nice and more helpfull than the server. I have brought people in but they wont be back due to the $1 charge for left sushi. If you just dont like that roll or it is fishy, your not going to eat it...If they stop this silly charge and simply send 4 rolls with the first order & then allow 2 roll limites after that people will be happy. not for nothing, that is what calf rolling does and it works. The all you can eat sushi is very limited, they should add a box noted "chefs choice" this could be a roll not on the menu to spice up things for the regulars. I have been told the price will go wi to like $21... boy I hope not because thats not a lunch price anymore...... I wish them luck and hope they do theese things to keep there customers —danplumber

2012-10-07 09:15:48   Disappointing. I eat at Japanese restaurants frequently (3-4 times a month) and have been to most of the Japanese restaurants in Rochester. This was the least positive dining experience I have had at a Japanese restaurant in Rochester. Atmosphere was low-end. We were seated near a television that was blaring a football game. When we asked that it be turned down, they turned on mute, and then we could hear one of the employees' children running around, squealing. The food was okay, not great. Miso soup was bland with very little tofu. Salad was just iceberg lettuce with some shredded diakon and watery ginger dressing. I had the sushi roll dinner: Philadelphia roll (too much cream cheese), shrimp roll (too little shrimp) and California roll (made with cucumber instead of avocado, but had some tobiko sprinkled on top which was nice). My husband had the chicken teriaki which was okay. Service was poor - our server's English was limited and he didn't seem familiar with the menu. We never got water. He served my beer in the bottle without a glass. Our dinners were served at different times. He brought my husband the wrong dinner. We were charged for a bottle of sake ($8.95) that we never ordered, although they quickly removed it from our bill when we complained. Also, watch out if you have a Groupon - the table next to us tried to use a Groupon and they would not let them apply it to one of the Chinese meals. We will not be back. —Amgineus
