Wasabi House – Halifax, NS

Wasabi House Halifax

In the past few years, HRM’s sushi options have blossomed from a handful of small shops to a smorgusboard of sushi chains, boutique stores, and all you can eat options. One of the newest kids on the Halifax sushi block, and the closest sushi option to our block, is Wasabi House (@wasabihouse).

Wasabi House opened its doors at the end of 2011 in what was once the Spartan Diner.  At less than a year old, Wasabi House has already built an impressive following.  By 5 pm, it’s hard to get take-out, let alone a table.

The rainbow jalapeno roll was a great choice on our most recent visit.

It’s no wonder there has been so much hype.  The food is awesome, the service is top-notch, and rolls ring in at about $1 less a roll than most of the other big sushi names in Halifax.  They also offer free delivery on the peninsula for orders over $35, and have ‘Happy Hour’ every night from 9 until close. They have the best wasabi in the city, the price is right, and if you pay in cash you save 10%.  Need more proof? It was recently named Best New Restaurant by The Coast.

The Maki-Diamond – One of the awesome yet affordable combo’s at Wasabi House

If you decide to dine in, be prepared to make a night out of it. The service is on the slow side, but they make up for it with lots of extras. For take-out, call early, leave late.

Our Picks:

The Maki Ruby: 6 pieces of Spicy Salmon, 6 pieces of sweet potato tempura and 6 pieces of California roll for $14.95

Tuna Tataki: Seared tuna with thin slices of jalepeno and ponzu sauce

For gluten free travelers, we have found Wasabi House to be great at tailoring rolls to be gluten free, with the exception of the sweet potato roll, which they are not able to grill in place of tempura. They also offer gluten free soya sauce in house and for take-out.
