Wasabi Point - Elmhurst

Wasabi Point
76-18 WOODSIDE AVENUE, Elmhurst

I'm sitting here in Wasabi point, luckily free wifi...
They just opened yesterday and I've been looking forward to it opening for a few months, especially because there isn't really any sushi game in town.

The decor is very nice. Reminds me of Ayada a few doors down. Lots of deep brown with a green accent. Same designer or distributor?

The owners are Tibetan - which I am trying to curb my ideas of Tibetans doing Japanese... I think the chefs are Japanese, although I havent asked.

The lunch menu is very diverse with all kinds of Japanese dishes and sushi offered. Very respectable lunch menu. Today I got Ramen with chicken. I was impressed! I was thinking the whole wait that I ordered wrong (maybe I should have tried the udon, whatever), but no - stupid large bowl with a nicely grilled chicken and lots of greens on there in a pretty dark broth. Doesn't have much kick, but I added some red and green sauce at the request of the waitress - and it was better.

Sushi looked fine. but, I mean, they've only been open 2 days, it hasnt had the chance to spoil yet... so we will see what happens.

I'd like to see some more opinions... I will be back next week to have a proper sushi meal.

      they do plan to, although not just yet.

      I have a feeling my search for great sushi is stlil ongoing. let's see if it's better than tomo... gotta be, right?

        prettty much....i do default to delivery from tomo when cravings hit, but the best case scenario is always 'that wasn't too bad."
