THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Wasabi Restaurant Review

: The answer to every sushi lover’s dreams, this nifty eat-and-run counter with its never-ending sushi conveyor belt lets consumers eye the offerings as they roll by, then make their pick from among the dozens and dozens of combos the busy kitchen is assembling. You’ll find everything, from spicy tuna and grilled salmon to miso soup, vegetable spring rolls, and wasabi and pork shu mai, and a whole lot of creations you may never have heard of. Dishes are color-coded so staff knows how much to charge at the end of your eating bonanza. Puzzled? Nearby waitstaff can help you out. There’s also a menu, but that takes away from the fun of the conveyor belt. Takeout is also available, and so is dessert: the green tea mousse will catch your fancy.
