Lunch at Wabi

good choice of tasty Japanese food served in lovely pottery. The decor is modern. There is a Japanese garden outside at the back. Tea used to be free when ordering the meal; unfortunately it was not so last time Miso soup was complimentary with certain dishes Staff always attentive and polite

Having visited wabi last year and had probably the best food I had ever tasted, it was so disappointing this year to have returned for the second time, ordered the same taster menu and felt really let down by not only the quality but the selection and quantity. I could only compare it to the food you would probably get... More

Visited Wabi last Tuesday with two friends to celebrate a birthday. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The ladies night menu was great value and the food was amazing. We enjoyed a drink down stairs at the bar before heading to our table upstairs. The cocktails were great and the staff were always on hand to make... More

We visited for lunch, the service was excellent and they were great with my gluten free options. Food presentation was fantastic, and tasted amazing, sadly we didn't have time for dessert. We will be visiting again soon for dinner this time.

We visited twice in December, once at lunch time and once early evening. Both times we had great service and great food. It was so nice to be in a restaurant that knew when I said I am gluten free, what to serve me with making me feel uncomfortable. I didn't have to ask if check, when my food came... More

Went here with a friend looking for "better than average" cocktails. We visited in the afternoon midweek. Whilst yes the cocktails are really impressive, the staff however should be ashamed. They are extremely rude and think they are above the customers. They are slow and leave the bar unattended during the quieter afternoon. I would not go back.

Please rest assured myself or a member of my management team would've been most grateful if you had given us the opportunity to look into this and rectify if needed in... More

We go regularly just for the cocktails which are really good. Can't afford to eat here but it makes a great meeting place.
