Best for Trendiness - Expert review of Wasabi Blue

Hip and happening sushi joint on the sea.

Sooner or later we all get bored of the same old thing and Palma has been quick to embrace international flavours, particularly those of Asia. Wasabi was one of the first good Japanese places to open back in 2004 and has since become another great island success story boasting two more venues in town.

Food and drink: 

Sushi and sashimi, tempura and the like, is jazzed up with a little island fusion. Majorca rolls spiked with sobrasada (pork sausage liberally laced with pimentón - Spanish paprika) anyone?

Recommended dishes: 

Their spicy tuna and soft shell crab rolls deserve to win awards. To my knowledge they haven’t. Yet.

Ambience: 

This is probably the trendiest spot in untrendy Ciutat Jardi, though it has to be said the neighbourhood is getting there. The teal and turquoise banquettes, white plasterwork and pumping tunes give it an almost club-like zeal.

Service: 

The staff are pleasant enough, if a little slow and unbothered at times.

Location: 

Wasabi Blue is on a back street in Ciutat Jardí so a bit of a no man's land, but handily located for going out and being groovy afterwards. Puro Beach Club is just up the road.

Price advice: 

The set lunch, bento-box style for €15 is reasonable value, but you'll get far more interesting fare if you go a la carte. In which case expect to spend around €30 a head for a good selection of sushi and sashimi with a jug of sake or a bottle of house wine.

Tables to book: 

Ask for a table by a window, those in the middle of the room feel a little bit crammed in. Plus you get the view.

Other useful branches: 

There are two other branches in the centre of Palma and one in Alicante (www.wasabirestaurants.es).
