In presence of the Japanese ambassador in Kuwait, His Excellency Takashi Ashiki, dignitaries, and Kuwait media representatives, Wasabi, the authentic upscale fine-dining Japanese restaurant, revealed its new look and menu, both inspired from exquisite Japanese traditions.
Recently undergone a minor brand facelift the menu has been revisited to include old Wasabi specials, while introducing some signature items that fusion lovers will appreciate.
On this occasion, Mohamed Nassar, Operations Manager at Good Food said: “We are honored to have the Japanese Ambassador, His Excellency Takashi Ashiki as well as prominent figures within the media industry celebrate the hard work that the team has put into this revamp.

Whether you choose to go to the branch in Al Beda’a or Al Mahboula, Wasabi – Part of Good Food Company – is definitely the place to be when craving high-quality Japanese food.
The restaurant’s name is inspired from Wasabi; a healthy plant with a thick green root that tastes like strong horseradish used heavily in Japanese cuisine. At Wasabi, the functional room allows the food plating and vibrant colors of the ingredients to be highlighted, focusing on fresh sushi prepared delicately, and reserved mainly for the true sushi lovers.
Wasabi’s interior has been stripped down to its pure basics emanating a minimalistic yet classy feel. The Japanese fine dining experience is emphasized with handpicked soft lights, giving the space a feel of absolute lux. Shades of grey and wood tones are meticulously used for the sole purpose of keeping most of the customer’s focus on Wasabi’s core masterpiece, the taste and presentation of the food itself in the midst of a cool and relaxing atmosphere.
When customers step into the restaurant, they can feel the warm greetings from the friendly staff. The meal starts off with a hot aromatic cup of green tea meant to stimulate the appetite for what is yet to come.
The menu offers an extensive selection of delectable soups (Wasabi special seafood creamy soup, Miso soup, Tempura Ramen Soup…), mouthwatering appetizers (Kani Furai, Rock Shrimp, Crispy Crunch…) as well as a wide array of rolls meant to cater to each customer’s individual taste.
The menu also features our chef’s creativity with contemporary signature dishes created to tantalize your taste buds.
