Go Wasabi - Go, Go, Go Here!

Go Wasabi - 34-02 30th Avenue, Astoria, NY 11103
N/W Train to 30th Avenue

This Sushi establishment is a reliable staple when it comes to good Japanese food. Its interesting spin? Go Wasabi actually serves both Japanese AND Korean cuisine.

Located just 3 blocks from the N/W subway, Go Wasabi is hard to miss. When walking in, your attention immediately focuses on the piano--yes, they have live Jazz on Fridays and Saturdays. The decor is classic and sleek with shiny chrome chairs and tables. You won't get bored here; and even if you find yourself waiting for your dining companion, you can watch nostalgic cartoons on their flat screen TV. I think that I caught an episode of the Smurfs once!

You'll perhaps find this surprising, but I'm a major right wing Sushi conservative--no funky pink sushi with fisheads for me! Luckily for Sushi conservatives and liberals alike, Go Wasabi offers something for pretty much everyone. Click here for menu. I can always count on their hot Miso soup and Etamame to hold me over. My other conservative Sushi favorites such as California, avocado, cucumber and eel rolls are done right and recommended. A serious Sushi-head friend of mine once tried a very funky looking specialty roll--the Rainbow. She raved about it afterwards not only to me but spread the good word to others. An interesting alternative to Sushi is the Korean food--you can order hearty Korean bbq beef or your choice of chicken, beef, seafood or tofu in a hot stone pot.

Want to take the flavor of Go Wasabi with you? Buy their very own Sesame and Ginger salad dressing!

Service and Price:
The waitstaff here is lovely. They're polite, courteous and always smiling. Who doesn't want to get served by someone like that? The prices are very reasonable--appetizers range from $3.45-$7.95, basic rolls from $3.45-$6.45, specialty rolls from $3.95-$9.95 and Korean entrees from $12.95-$15.95.

One last thing to note--check out Go Wasabi's sibling on Ditmars Blvd.


  1. Foodista--I must say, after having tried both Go Wasabi & Watawa, I definitely think Watawa takes the, um, rice? Anyway--my advice to readers would be to hit Go Wasabi if looking for something on 30th Ave, but if you find yourself on Ditmars, i think Watawa is the better choice.

  2. I agree Kimberly. I like Watawa better myself but then again I'm not the biggest fan of Sushi so I defer to my readers opinions on that. Thanks for your 2 cents, always appreciated :)

    Only order from Go Wasabi if you're doing take-out, b/c in the end... take-out sushi is all the same - not as fresh.
