RAMEN IS OUR PASSION

Jyunya puts his heart and soul into his Ramen and you will find him making noodles by hand every morning and watching over his boiling stock pot for hours and hours as he perfects the umami flavours of his broths. He would love you to come in and experience his REAL ramen and experience Izakaya dining with your friends and family.
So much ramen love to choose from!

“Hands down, the best spot for Japanese in Kelowna. The menu is ever changing, and the presentation is truly beautiful. If you want to impress your out of town guests with a unique and delicious dining experience, this is the place.”

“Wasabi Izakaya is small and quaint, and I imagine what an authentic Izakaya feels like in Japan. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and we loved the Japanese language menu of specials, along with the small menu that offered ramen, sushi and grilled favourites.”
“You’ve heard it here… Wasabi has the BEST ramen and Japanese tapas in the Okanagan! Pictured here – a summer cold ramen dish featuring spicy ahi tuna poke, fresh pea shoots, lettuce, cilantro, avocado and spring onion. Not to mention flaky, crunchy bits of nori AND a mouthwateringly spicy broth. So. Good.”
