We say:

The sushi is good, but cheaper fare that is just as fresh can be found a block away from the Williamsburg location at Miyako. Plus the atmosphere at Miyako is more intimate. And who wants to eat at a restaurant with such a lame name anyway. There is the plus of a heated patio for the smoking crowd though.

NY Mag says:

Although Wasabi’s flavorful but undistinguished sushi wouldn’t turn heads in Manhattan, it’s nothing short of a miracle in sushi-deprived Greenpoint (although perhaps not as shocking in Williamsburg). The restaurant itself is stylish but not elaborately so; the focus is on getting Brooklyn hipsters fed in an efficiently appealing setting. That said, the service can be both spotty and surly. But if you’re willing to put up with it, you’ll be rewarded with tasty selections from the extensive menu. The rolls are particularly satisfying, including vegetarian rolls like the Zen-Zen, an orgy of mixed seaweed, tofu, asparagus and mushroom. Wasabi may have an extensive menu (there are also numerous hot entrées), but its prices aren’t similarly profligate, making it one of Brooklyn’s best bets for Japanese cuisine.
