I began watching Iron Chef when it was still in Japanese. While he was not the first Iron Chef Japanese, Morimoto was my favorite of the Japanese chefs.

This was appalling bad and does not seem like the cuisine of Morimoto. The seafood tasted very bland and it was previously frozen. The languostine dish was not deveined which is a quite disgusting to look at and eat. The scallop gyoza had the scallop on top of the gyoza, not inside and it was very dried out. I am... More

The service at Wasabi is excellent. The food is good (relative to a Japanese restaurant in India) but is expensive.

The food at Wasabi is high quality Japanese and the best not only on Mumbai but in all of India. It's a must try unless you have a tight budget.

We were staying at the Taj Mahal Palace and had eaten in most of the other restaurants so decided to try Wasabi By Morimoto without knowing anything about it. Wow!

Recognised by San Pellegrino as one of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2016, Wasabi by Morimoto offers its guests authentic Japanese culinary treasures from the repertoires of Iron Chef Morimoto. The ingredients, including seafood and Wasabi, are specially flown down from Japan. Besides, the ever popular signature dishes like White fish carpaccio, Black cod miso, Wasabi crème brulee, the already extensive menu keeps expanding and changing with new additions. Interact with our Japanese Chef Masasan Kobayashi at the Sushi Bar or watch him set the range ablaze at the Teppenyaki Counter. Complete with an extensive selection of Japanese whisky, Sake and Plum wines, Wasabi by Morimoto is a connoisseur's delight.
