Wasabi
2 QUAMBY PL, NOOSA

Yes, this may sting a little, particularly the credit card surcharge, but you'll reminisce about Wasabi's serene surrounds, the almost psychic waitstaff and regionally nuanced dishes long after the bill fades. The tatami room with sunken seating and rice paper screens is a mood-enhancing spot to navigate a top-notch drinks list replete with an impressive sake offer. Diners seeking shoe-on ease can nab a white banquette in the prettily lit riverfront section, or pursue privacy in a curtained booth. The omakase menu is the wisest path, the brilliance of Jiro Numata's sushi and sashimi assured. The alternative, an $80 three-course carte, provides ample choice - striking tempura-battered enoki, perhaps, with king prawn, rock oyster and salmon, followed by rosy venison and shiitake slices over bunya nut purée. Desserts such as sake-kasu, with sake-infused custard, lemon geranium jelly, peach sorbet and petals, are meticulously crafted.
