The food was pleasant but nowhere near as exciting and delicious as it was a couple of years ago. Formerly as exciting as Yauatcha, but no more. Buns in Japanese food...?

We had dinner with friends at Wabi the food served was the best Japanese food I've ever had. The team of staff has been strengthened with Nero, Alex and Rob leading their respective departments with a high degree of professionalism and genuine care. Alex in particular was extremely helpful with the choice of dishes and helped size up certain portions... More

We wandered into Horsham and by chance saw the reopened Wabi, we hadn't booked but were greeted and really looked after by the staff. The manager took time to explain the gluten free options from the menu. Service was excellent andthe food was superb. Fine dining at its best, well done Wabi!

Good night out with girlfriends. Great door service with (handsome) doormen ... Very polite. Happy bar staff. Quick turnaround with drink orders (we didn't eat there). Lovely clean decor. The one thing I would gripe about is the air conditioning....it's so sporadic at times. One minute it's blowing a gale, the next it's not.....have had to put my coat on... More

My partner and I decided to give the Wabi restaurant a try today as we were in Horsham for a bit of shopping. (24.10.2014) The decor is very attractive and the bar area looked appealing. We were shown to a table directly below an air conditioning vent which was blowing cold air so not very nice - we had to... More

We love Wabi. Their food is exquisite. The presentation beautiful. We've tried nearly everything from the menu and have not been disappointed. So glad to have them back. Loving their new look and updated menu.

7th visit in under a month this week. I have used the venue for personal enjoyment as well as dining with business clients. Food was brilliant before, although you had to get your head around the menu. Since the re-opening it's even better. The staff were attentive and explained everything and everytime I and my guests have been greeted warmly... More

Me and my partner had dinner here a couple of Saturday's ago and it was incredible. We ordered a selection of dishes from each page of the menu as we wanted to make the most of sampling the menu! Every dish that came out was delicious and full of flavour! The service was fantastic and the staff couldn't have done... More

Went to Wabi last night for dinner with some of the girls. We used to go a lot before the fire, and were excited about a revisit. Sadly we were all a bit disappointed. We always used to have the ladies night menu - a bargain at £21 per head including a cocktail. Sadly this option no longer exists We... More
