Wasabi Restaurant & Bar

Awarded Two Chefs Hats, voted Queensland's Regional Restaurant of the Year and recognised by Gourmet Traveller as Australia's #1 Japanese restaurant and The Australian's 'Hottest' Queensland restaurant, Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.

  

The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Wasabi offers two different styles of seating; the western style to the front of the restaurant and the Tatami style (with sunken wells under the tables for your legs) on a mezzanine level behind. This means everyone can enjoy the view by day and an extra dimension is added to the room at night.

In 2016 The Wasabi Group opened two new businesses, The Cooking School Noosa and Ibento Private Dining Room.
