Wa Sushi is a fantastic new Japanese restaurant located on the Casselberry/Winter Springs line. Freshness is the speciality of the house and, on a recent trip, so was bluefin tuna! Dishes at Wa are presented with gourmet flair but priced for the budget conscious. Just two months old, Wa has already become a staple lunch stop and favorite family night out restaurant for many locals, my family and I included.
I made my first trip to Wa with my family a few weeks after their July opening. I ordered the eel dish, Unadon, which is pieces of eel, drizzled with house eel sauce, served over rice, it was savory and delicious. My wife had the sushi combo plate, the selection was pretty standard but the fish which was spectacularly fresh and tasty. My daughters enjoyed a sampling from our plates plus some exceptional miso soups. We all loved it!
Wa Sushi also serves a variety of Japanese favorites, including noodle, teriyaki and tempura dishes. They also serve exotic sakis, both hot and cold, and other refreshing beverages. My palette and I look forward to exploring the full menu!
The service is exceptional at Wa, the restaurant hosts a stylish and pleasant room, with just a handful of tables and a sushi bar. The wait staff are prompt and knowledgeable. They have also been quite generous at Wa, offering free tastings of saki and various other complimentary perks for early adopters.
Wa also controls the shop immediately next door and they have plans to start teaching different cooking classes, including sushi making, in the space later this month. I imagine the space can also be used to host larger events, though I did not confirm that with the owners.
When I first posted to Facebook that I was eating at Wa I received several comments asking “how is it? I’ve been curious since they opened” comments. I highly recommend putting Wa on your list of things to do this weekend, or, better yet, go feast on some fresh fish and cold grapefruit saki right now!
