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


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.

For the price paid - it could have been better

My husband and I have tried the chef special (not sure what they call), it consist of 6-7 courses. I had the vegetarian and my husband the regular we had a bottle of wine. All in all the meal is good but nothing spectacular except for the mini mushroom burger that's the only thing I remember super nice from that night. We paid more than 400USD for the two of us and I must say, we should have gone to other resto inside the hotel. Plus there was an Bollywood superstar who can in later and most of the staff I think were busy with them and have forgotten the rest of the paying customer.

Loved it

The ambience is unique. The food is superb. My family, who have a discerning taste and wide experience of Japanese cuisine, claimed this to be some of the best they have ever had. They are looking forward to go there again

The ambience is very classy. The service is excellent, near perfection. Its very expensive but I think one should visit it once at least for the experience. The Lobster,Tempura shrimp, Miso soup, sushi and the lamb chops were my favourite.

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. A celebrity dining here is a common sight. Start your Wasabi dining experience with an assortment of appetizers such as, calamari tempura salad, yellowtail jalapeno carpaccio, chicken shio yakitori, Japanese ocean oysters, spicy king crab and aburi pork kakuni. A wonderful spread of sushi and sashimi is also worth looking into. For mains stick to, momen tofu steak, surf & turf, lobster with spicy negi sauce, black cod miso and roasted duck.

Sip on a glass of wine or a cup of delicious coffee blend to complement the dessert course. Wade through a delightful array of exotic desserts such as, green tea chocolate moon, sakura peach compote, anmitsu water cake, ume shu sorbet, waguri mont-blanc, yukimi daifuku and kuro goma mille feuille. The restaurant seats about 50 covers so it is filled pretty quickly. We recommend you to book in advance. The modern stylish aspect of the menu shines through the décor, which you will find to be just as elegant. Warm wooden tones are merged with European lines to design the space. During the day, the restaurant is flooded with natural light. Overall, a glamourous contemporary dining space.
