Friday night rolled along and I was in the mood for sushi. In comes Mr. Wasabi in Schenectady. I had been here several years ago and it was time for a revisit and a review.
We ordered the spicy tuna dumplings as an appetizer, it came out as 6 spicy tuna balls surrouned by avacado. I love avacado with pretty much anything so I was a fan of spicy tuna being surrounded by it. They were good, but difficult to eat and I would have preferred a little more flavor. For rolls, we orderd the ginza roll (crab tempura and mango inside, topped with spicy tuna, avacado and a mango sauce), a Fall Season roll (spicy crunch tuna, avacado, and bonito seasoning) and a spicy salmon crunch roll. Fish in the rolls was fresh and the rolls were actually as described. I thought the ginza roll had some conflicting flavors in it (mango and spicy don't really go together). Overall, the rolls were good, and I think we would order any of them again.
As an added bonus, we also ordered a dessert of tempura cheesecake. Normally this dish is a few small pieces of cheesecake battered and fried. In this case, it was an entire slice of cheesecake battered and fried. The thin part was great, but as you got to the thicker area, it was still completely frozen and inedible.
We had no complaints on service, everyone was friendly and polite. It was a great experience overall and earned a rating of 4 forks.
