While walking around Taipei 101 the day before we noticed the long lines in front of Wasabi. We took a look at the food and immediately made reservations for lunch. We made sure we were hungry when we conquered Wasabi.
Weekday lunch buffet cost NT$648 or P922 or US$20. Buffet included a wide, wide array of beverages from sodas, juice, green tea milk to coffee and tea.
I was only able to take a few pictures of the buffet when they stopped me. The sushi and sashimi bar was laid out on a long table. If you just took a piece each you would be stuffed to the max.
3 kinds of steamed rice – salmon, mushroom and something I forgot
There were so many drinks to choose from but I knew what I wanted. I got the green tea milk. As strange as that sounds it was good! Much better than Starbucks’ green tea latte.
I took pictures of everyone’s plates instead. We didn’t get to eat everything on the buffet but we did out best to try most of the excellent food.
Each station had a different color of small plate that you put on a tray. I liked this style of plating. Food with sauce don’t spill on to other food. And it just looks prettier.
grilled mushroom, beef and fish balls
cold fish and roasted super sweet potatoes
the sweetest and crispest corn ever!
assortment of mochi (glutinous rice flour) desserts
The food was very good and there was a big selection to choose from. It was worth every dollar. So if you’re in Taipei try the Japanese buffet at Wasabi for a change.

While I’m appreciative of your effort and suggestion, I can’t agree with your assessment. I had dinner at Wasabi last night and found the food below average. To top it off, I saw tour groups dining there. I guess perhaps the standard had dropped or the good chefs had left. I tried the Jap buffet at Shin Ye a few nights before and it was actually much better. No offence, pls.
No offence taken Joe! 🙂 When we ate there there weren’t any tour groups. You’re probably right maybe they changed chefs. Thanks for visiting my blog!
