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!

Food rating 100%. Staff gentle and polite. However the sushi we ordered didn't arrived. Our booking was at 7.30, there were 6 of us and when the food came it came very quickly -so I asked for a break before we continued the meal. Once again the rest of the food that we did receive was fabulous but at 9.:30 the restaurant was being cleaned around us, sweeping of floors, wiping down of tables and putting the chairs on top of the tables. We didn't want to eat and run so we stayed until 10.30 and apart from all the activity, once it ceased the staff went into the kitchen and we didn't feel quite so pressured. Having said this I would go back to this restaurant a few times a week because there are so many interesting things on the menu. Actually I would prefer to give this restaurant a low rating because I would like to keep it a secret 😏

Excellent. Best value Japanese on offer. Fresh, quick, tasty, cheerful. 10/10. We have eaten here a number of times and it never disappoints. Grilled salmon nigiri is probably the favourite but there are so many other favourites as well. Too many to mention.

We asked for a table for 6 at 6pm to be out by 6.50. All meals were served promptly and we were out by 6.50. Food is consistently delicious here and the only problem is choosing from the large menu. Highly recommended

Fabulous menu. Lovely staff. Great value. The children loved the options and we particularly loved the spicy chicken entrees. This is my fifth visit and it never fails to hit the mark. A fantastic local spot.

The Wasabi Place upon entering, is a nice clean open space. Welcoming feel. The service was friendly and quick. Food was alright and portion was enough.
