“Simply Amazing Japanese Food. Best in India I feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014

After a disappointing time at Wasabi Mumbai, went back to Wasabi Delhi and was amazed at the impeccable food and service again. This restaurant sets all standards apart.

The have some pretty reasonably priced bottles of wine in the wines by the glass section. I had the Sicilian one which was amazing.

For food, we had the:
Yellowtail Carpaccio - A must try. It was really fresh yellowtail

Spicy Shrimp Tempura Rolls - I do not advice ordering sushi at Wasabi. Though it is really good, their other stuff is much better

Tuna Pizza: Amazing. It was out of the world

Chicken Tacos: This was also really yummy and mixed of Mexican-Japanese flavours

Black Cod Miso: This is the signature dish that you cannot miss. Great quality fish cooked to perfection so that it just melts away in your mouth.

Cant wait for my next visit.

“Makes Delhi worth a trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2014

This was the best highlight of all. go. go again. go hungry. The menu is extensive- try the miso with fish stock, you must have the salmon sushi- unforgettable. the pork was surprising and the fish unsurpassed.

“It's alright”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2014

Maybe I expected too much. I had eel bento(if that's what they call it) it was good but not sure if it was worth the price. I like the modern vibe of the restaurant though

“Exquisite Flavours, Superb Service and MUST VISIT place :-) :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2014

This is a contemporary Japanese restaurant which serves OUTSTANDING food :-) .... You should come here for a dinner and enjoy the decor, food and service :-) :-) ... I am a vegetarian and a first time visitor to a japanese eating place ... i was not exactly sure of what to expect and the little i had read was not enough to give me a idea of the treat that was awaiting me

I was offered a Teppanyaki Live Kitchen seating which i accepted with some trepidation ... I ended up loving this seating and was here for close to 2 hours savouring the food and the overall experience ..... I will INSIST that you try this for sure :-) :-) .. My eating for the day was balanced and left me wanting to come back and try more .. Went for boiled & fresh Soya beans, Tomato based clear soup with veggies, Wasabi Fried Rice with a Asahi Dry Beer :-) :-) ......

My recommendations include
1. Call and book a table ... place is crowded and seating is tough to get :-)
2. Ask for the Live Kitchen seating .... Am sure you will enjoy this experience of great food being made right in front of you :-)
3. If you have any allergies do share this with them .. the Chef and the overall staff are very interactive and can help you make food right for your palate :-) ... JUST LOVED THIS APPROACH ... i have a soya & MSG allergy and they helped me with a dinner inspite of this
4. Vegetarians can have a great time as they have a lovely offering .. Rice eaters will enjoy the food options as well please :-)
5. Place is a touch expensive and so pls plan for the same accordingly
6. SUPERB service and should mention Deepak for his attention and suggestions .. Chef Nishant spent lots of time with me talking me thru the Japanese food and what to try out .... Malavika , the Manager, dropped in and spent time explaining the evolution of the place and was happy to offer a special seating for my next visit with family

Overall a GREAT PLACE and i insist that you visit this place for sure :-)

“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

We stayed at the Taj in Delhi for a few days and ate at this fabulous Japanese restaurant. Morimoto of Iron chef fame is the genius behind this stunning place. I have eaten sushi around the world but this is above and beyond. The ambiance is stunning, the menu outstanding and the service incredible. Fresh sushi, great sake and a marvelous tappanyaki grill. Truly magical.
