About The Wasabi Place

Situated in the heart of Kew, The Wasabi Place offers an exquisite Japanese dining experience at its High Street location, understatedly cool with stylish, minimalist decor. Headed by chef Ren San who is quite the perfectionist, each dish is beautifully presented and of the highest quality. Some of our favourites include the salmon bao (grilled salmon pieces seasoned with lemon pepper tempura crisps, scallion, kimchi sauce and wasabi mayo), the yakitori (chicken skewers marinated in homemade teriyaki sauce) and the agedashi tofu (deep-fried tofu served with tetsuya sauce). A firm favourite among fans of Japanese cuisine, The Wasabi Place is the place to go for sushi, sashimi and other Japanese specialities in Melbourne – book a table and head on over!

Small cosy place with excellent food. We had a feeling that the restaurant had changed hands since we last visited, but the quality of the food remains high! Thankfully! We love this place.
