Wa Sushi has at last reopened at a new location in the Ollie's Bargain Outlet plaza — remaining in the Casselberry area.

The popular sushi restaurant, renowned for serving up superior concoctions of local and Japanese seafood, opened their doors on Jan. 28, and can be found at 908 State Road 436, behind the Buffalo Wild Wings.

Our dining critic had a difficult time finding the original location when he reviewed it in 2018, but said the way the chefs "slice, dice, fold, curl and plate that fine catch [delivered from Tokyo's Tsukiji Fish Market] roused us into a bit of a feeding frenzy." 

The restaurant closed its out-of-the-way Seminola Boulevard spot in February 2020, with the plan to reopen at a new location. They spent the last year updating their customers through Instagram and Facebook, and now eagerly await hungry customers.

Wa Sushi is open 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. for lunch and 5-9 p.m. for dinner Monday-Friday. On Saturday they are open for lunch noon-2:30 p.m. and offer extended dinner hours, 2:30-10 p.m.
