The name “Wasabee” creates an immense drama and associates to the twang of taste. So when the advertisement announced big musical names to Wasabee – the expectations soar much higher than ordinary. The distance is a factor, to reach this south-of-the-city fringe restaurant, takes at least 45 minutes to an hour from the centre of the city, even if you take the low on traffic E M Byepass.

Decor
The red snazzy signage on a brand new apartment building announces the restaurant. However, the locality beats all logic. With stagnant waterbodies, waste odour, mosquito infested surroundings – an Oriental bloom! Maybe, because they say lotus only blooms in such conditions. The first look actually takes me aback. A Japanese specialty restaurant with bright red and yellow interiors, musical instruments infused design, music posters on the wall and uncomfortable seating. Overall, a music studio yes, an Oriental feel no!

Food
The menu starts with a Japanese stunt. Miso Soup, Sushi platters, Teriyaki and Yakitori, Gyoza, Udon and Soba noodles, Josiko curry and the works. Followed by a regular dose of Chinese and Thai. What actually stumps us is a totally unnecessary Indian selection of kebabs, curries and breads at the tail end. Of course, our meal is all about Japanese, though we start with a Chinese soup: Wasabee Special Soup with Glass Noodles with seafood (Rs. 220). Moving on, we order a portion of Nigiri (Rs. 390) – Nori wrapped sushi with filling of smoked salmon, crabmeat, cucumber and asparagus, Teriyaki fish (Rs.380), Yakitori Paneer (Rs.280), non vegetarian Yaki Soba noodles (Rs. 360) and the Thai Khao Phad (Rs.240). The sides are a mix of Chinese and Thai – Corn Potato in Hot Garlic Sauce (Rs.250) and Crispy Lamb with Pok Choy (Rs. 340).

Plus & Minus
The noodle soup comes in a nice variation with vegetables, tofu and glass noodles with sprinkling of seafood, though without any distinct taste. The Nigiri Sushi is a great indigenous effort, however the freshness of the salmon and crabs does not match up the authentic taste or flavour. The barbecued, cover-fried paneer and bite sized fish presented in a skewer, both hardly give the original concept of marinated grills used in the Teriyaki technique, but instead comes in smoky, batter fried flavours. The Yakisoba or the ramen style wheat noodles come with multitude of vegetable and mixed meat garnishes. The highlight of the meal is the Khao Phad or the Thai style fried rice, presented with true hot pot aromas, Potato cubes and corn in spicy garlic sauce and sliced, juicy roast lamb in pok choy – nothing crispy about it. We skip desserts.rn

Eat here last night and found the food bland and the prices exorbitant. You pay for fancy decor and atmosphere but the food was a big disappointment. Starters were tiny, bland (ribs and fish cakes). Pretty vegetable sculpture did not counterbalance the bland good. Pad thai was very bland indeed. Beef in black bean tasted like it came out of a jar, ditto vegetables in oyster sauce.

The food is to to good....the sushis r a must try. Not only the sushis but also the other foods like the sizzlers,the soups and the stuffed bhetki is unexplainable..... Wasabee is a little expensive but it is worth it.

Wasabee don't have a good dcor. It is not for the people for whom interiors matter the most. The interiors are not at all mesmerizing or eye-catching. Coming to the food, I would say they quite a nice deal. Japanese and Chinese cuisine is all what they have. They have good Miso Soup, Sushi platters, Yakitori, Udon and Teriyaki fish. Even the Corn Potato in Hot Garlic Sauce and Crispy Lamb with Pok Choy are great too. Food is quite delicious. Service of the place is quite good with dedicated employees.
