Located at the Taj Palace Hotel and with Morimoto's name attached to it we were excited to have dinner here to celebrate our trip to Mumbai and our stay at the Taj Palace Hotel. The service is amazing, being a Taj Hotel establishment and their concept of "Tajness" you cannot fault the service at all. Sorry to say, the food... More

It was expensive but it did not disappoint!! The sushi was fresh and delicious and the other dishes that we ordered were also top notch. Modern decor and very nice atmosphere.... More

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. I lived in Mumbai for almost 4 years and as soon as I learned he had a restaurant there, I went immediately. At no turn was I disappointed. The restaurant as a... More

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.
