Insider Tips

  • The signature dish at Wasabi is the White Fish Carpaccio: thin slices of raw fluke which are cooked on the plate when a warm oil-based, spicy dressing is poured on them. Delicious!
  • This is a small restaurant (under 50 covers) and fills up quickly so always book ahead. In recent years, Wasabi has not been as well-managed as it once was, so be ready for a few hiccups
  • If you are vegetarian, don't worry. The Taj's masterchef Hemant Oberoi, has created a whole vegetarian section whose dishes outsell Morimoto's creations

Critic Rating

Vir's Verdict Chief Editor & Lead Critic

4.5/5

The Taj negotiated long and hard with Nobu to open a branch of his glamorous chain of modern Japanese restaurants here. When those negotiations broke down they fell back on Masaharu Morimoto, who was the first Executive Chef of the New York Nobu. Though Morimoto has now developed his own style of cuisine, the Wasabi menu reaches back to his Nobu days and all the old favourites are pulled out, from the Rock Shrimp Tempura to the Black Cod in Miso. A Japanese chef despatched by Morimoto handles the excellent sushi and sashimi section but Indian chefs cook everything else.The food is never bad but be warned: this is the city's most expensive restaurant.

About Wasabi By Morimoto, The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Mumbai


Japanese cuisine is one of the best things when you are exploring Japan. For some travelers it’s the main event! Japanese food has its roots reaching back in time but as the time passed, it adapted itself into a more refined and a more sophisticated style of cooking. Japanese food has not only become an exotic part of modern day gastronomy but its health benefits only adds to its appeal. Which is why, several five star hotels are investing a lot in Japanese gastronomy by bringing in the big guns. For instance, Taj Hotel aimed to invite Nobu to Indian shores but after the negotiations fell through it settled with Masaharu Morimoto, who was the first executive chef of the New York Nobu. This is how the exclusive ‘Wasabi By Morimoto’ came into the picture.

The restaurant is known for its modern Japanese cuisine and has developed its own brand of cooking aside from Nobu. But if you ask nicely, the chef will cook you something from Nobu menu and offer you New York style Nobu experience sitting right here in Mumbai. Wasabi By Morimoto has only elevated the popularity of Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, where the restaurant is located. The prices will take your breath away, be warned.
