Pleasantly surprised.

We came here for the first time recently and must admit we were worried about some of the negative reviews, but can report that we were very happy with the food, drinks and service. Although it was quite expensive we felt it was worth it. We sat downstairs near the bar area, and were here early on... read more

we were lucky enough to happen upon this gem midweek when the 7,8,9 (I forgot!) course taster menu is a two-fer! (2 for the price of 1) the dishes are utter perfection, with enormous attention to sometimes quite theatrical presentation and superb fresh ingredients! this is the kind of place you take someone to show off, to impress, to enjoy...

We were walking down East street looking for a place where to have dinner, when wabi caught our eye. We entered the restaurant and were greeted directly by one of the mangers with a friendly smile. We were seated on a table which gave us a full view of the bar; it has a lovely Japanese contemporary style to it.... More

Everything is always excellently cooked with fresh ingredients; a very consistent standard and very tasty. If you're having lunch it's very good value for money and the bento boxes are very filling. The staff are professional, but at quieter times they can lack attention to guests.

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
