Queens >Go Wasabi
“Excellent service, great music (check out their jazz night), and good location.”
“First, I hate that bright white light behind the sushi bar.”
“Their food is tasty and of high quality for the price.”
“When they first opened, the food was above average for Queens standards, but below average for Manhattan standards but the service was fantastic that I kept going back, also due to lack of options.”
“Go Wasabi is our new favorite Korean restaurant in the area.”
“The waitstaff and hostess were impeccable in their attention to detail, their efficient service, and their overall charm.”
“Rice is not expensive, so I don't know why they where so cheap with it, the size of the fish was also much much smalle then before and smaller than many other sushi places in astoria.”
better than the ditmars location that closed.
I used to live by the ditmars Go Wasabi and tried it a few times and was disgusted. That location has since closed no doubt due to the horrible sushi and once when I was in there I saw roaches everywhere. That being said I've moved over by the 30th ave location and was apprehensive to eat here based on my experience at the other location but my love of sushi got the best of me one day and I decided to at least try it.
It was pretty tasty and a much cleaner place then the other location. it's not the best sushi I've ever had but I'd certainly go back here again. also they offer a 5% discount if you pay cash and they have specials!
I love this place. Gowasabi!!!.
I just got a great Japanese restaurant in Astoria. I found them through a posting online and this is the best sushi place I have ever been to. Every piece of sashimi I ate...practically melted in my mouth...The sashimi, and sushi combos were filled with buttery tuna, shrimp, squid...everything is just deliciously fresh and perfect. The staffs were very friendly with great services. I'm looking forwards to going back again as soon as possible.
Pros: The best sushi ever, fast service
Best Japanese Food and Great Service. This is one of the best and friendliest Japanese restaurants in Astoria! Everything there is so fresh and delicious that it melts in your mouth. I have to admit that they have to work a little bit more on the decor but the service is great, the food is wonderful and the chef shows amazing attention to detail ! My husband and I enjoy going there almost every week. You must try them out and you will be back! Oh, did I mention that when the bill comes they actually do not empty your wallet, unlike many other (Japanese) restaurants?
Editorial Review. Sushi and teriyaki rub elbows with bulgogi and bibimbop rub elbows at this Japanese-Korean minchain in Astoria.
NOTHING GREAT. EDIBLE. I've tried this place about 4 times since it first opened. Each time I told myself I will never go back....but I did....with disappointments. I figured there were probably other good item on the menu for me to try. First, I hate that bright white light behind the sushi bar. I know it's only lighting, but it really ruins the mood and the atmosphere. I've tried the bento box, sushi, sashimi, Korean dishes, etc. If you want quality sushi, not here. If you know real Korean dishes, still not here. It's edible, but if you want to spend a little more $ for quality and atmosphere...got to the city. P.S. Shima has better Japanese cuisine in Astoria, although service lags sometimes.
Great Sushi in Astoria. Great place for Sushi in Astoria. My boyfriend and I prefer brown rice sushi, and they always accomodate us. The fish is fresh, the bento boxes are huge, and the staff is friendly. Other sushi spots in Astoria either do not have brown rice or they put mayonnaise in their rolls, yuck.
Do NOT order delivery. Unbelievably bad service. I ordered dinner at 7pm. I followed up on my order twice. 45 minutes later, I was told that the delivery guy was heading out with it right now. It is now 30 minutes after my follow up call and I have yet to see my food! Do not order deliver from this establishment. They could at least have the courtesy to inform you the true estimated delivery time. If they had told me the truth I would have easily walked over to pick it up. Instead, I'm held hostage in my apt, dizzy from starvation, while waiting for the delivery guy who is bound to never show up.
Good food and reasonable price.
Good variety of Japanese dishes. Also a few Korean dishes. Their food is tasty and of high quality for the price. Their service is average.
The environment is very nice and looks modern. Try the plum wine, it is very good.
Go Wasabi is our new favorite Korean restaurant in the area. Excellent service, great music (check out their jazz night), and good location. I love their Bi Bim Bop (sp?) and BBQs. Check out their lunch menus. Their delivery is faster than express train. Great meal for less. Far better place than Shima on Broadway (*UGH). This is a good example of how Japanese business gone bad and lost to Koreans in town. GoWasabi!!
Okay, so here's the unfortuant news...they can't cook Udon or Soba. The soup is totally wrong, and too sweet. Must've used wrong dashi base. So stay away from noodle dish there.
COME ON, SUSHI SNOBS- GO WASABI IS GREAT!.
I LOVE SUSHI and Go Wasabi is a great place to have it. I doubt if any of the other reviewers who disliked Go Wasabi are very knowledgable about great sushi. I wonder if the guy who talked about this Greek neighborhood has ever had sushi in Japan.
EVERYONE who works at Go Wasabi is very cordial, efficient, friendly, and most importantly, the sushi is always very fresh, and they have innovative items. And the ambience is cool- Really, you won't go wrong at this place. I've NEVER gotten a bad meal there, and I live right down the street, by Astoria Park. Also, my wife and I took her boss and her bosses' daughter there, a three year old, and they are VERY child friendly, little Lilly had a great time, with the piano music and everything, and our waitress even made a children's beginner chopstick for Lilly. GO!
