Great place for a meal with a difference

I love japanese food, but Wabi has become more than just a standard restaurant. With great cocktails and meals delivered with real theatre it is an event in its own right.

We attended as a girls nights out. All being in full time jobs in mixed industries we don't often get time to do this. We were planning on starting our night in Wabi and then having a meal at a different restaurant, we were all arriving at different times and there was going to be around 15 of us. We... More

Highly recommend Wabi. Pre dinner cocktails (raspberry mojito 10/10) and had the taster Wabi set menu - it was amazing. Great deco and excellent service, delighted to have found Wabi and will definitely be returning and would recommend.

Bill was wrong - We were overcharged for service, a £20+ service charge was added to a £106 bill..... I had to ask the waitress to correct it. This was because we had the 2 for 1 tasting menu and the service was charged on 2 x £55 rather than 1 x £55 that we paid for. This service fee... More

Horsham has a very competitive market! Many restaurants in East Street... none can offer such an unique and amazing experience I must say. My most recent visit was today for lunch but I have been several times since January (when first introduced by a friend). It is beyond my understanding why this place isn't busier everyday. Most of my work... More

We arrived around 9pm on Thursday night to enjoy cocktails for a girlie night. When we arrived we were greeted and told to take a seat. We were quickly given menus and ordered a pitcher for £36 between the 5 of us. Knowing it probably wouldn't last long or to be honest go very far between us all we decided... More

It's not common to arrive at a friends BBQ with sushi but this Sunday we did, and what a welcome it received. Wabi kindly put together two large platters of Dragon Rolls, Spicy Tuna Rolls, Salmon Avocado Rolls and Kappa Maki's. Which were so beautifully presented and fresh, giving a huge impression on the dining table. A WOW Factor for... More

Very mixed feelings about our evening at Wabi...delicious Japanese food but such poor service we really cannot recommend going here. We had the tasting menu which consists of 7 courses, which on a Wednesday is a special 2-4-1 offer. All the dishes look amazing and taste wonderful, but the evening was marred by slow, indifferent, unprofessional and at times sullen... More

Wabi offers a mix of classic and innovative sushi dishes served with a classy edge that wouldn't look out of place in some of London's top eateries. Easily one of the most stylish places for miles around. The food was excellent and served with style and professionalism.

I have visited Wabi twice. On the first occasion my wife and I went for a romantic date night dinner. We enjoyed drinks downstairs at the bar, although there seemed to be an element of the Friday night after work crowd still in attendance. We decided to take our drink upstairs and enjoy them at our table but it wasn't... More
