Concierge.com's insider take:

When Iron Chef and Nobu star Masaharu Morimoto announced he was opening a restaurant at the grand Taj Mahal Palace hotel in 2004, it was seen as a high-stakes gamble. The restaurant is minimally but expensively decorated, and no one was sure whether locals cared enough for Japanese food to justify the sky-high bills. Yet Morimoto's deft hand and exquisite ingredients have turned skeptics into fans, and Wasabi is now the see-and-be-seen place to eat. Some of the dishes have subtle American influences, but it's mostly traditional Japanese fare; standout dishes include the flounder carpaccio, lightly dressed with sesame and lemon, and the marbled strips of seared teriyaki Kobe steak. The latter, we're told, is most popular with visiting Indian businessmen who are militant vegetarians at home.

Open daily 12:30 to 2:45 pm and 7 to 11:45 pm.
