Great cocktail bar but expensive

Great for a night out but hold on to your wallets at about £8 a cocktail. Not a lot a seats either and a very loud dj on the corner of the room

i admire someone who tries something different and brining Japanese style food to Horsham was obviously a big gamble. I've been a few times and the place has had a bit of a plastic makeover since the last time I was there. The menu is too big, trying to cover all basis form wagamamma to Nobu! It's pricey but this...

They say you get what you pay for... Wabi holds true to a delightful and delicious level. Whilst a bit pricey, at least by Horsham standards but about average with up-scale London restaurants, Wabi proved to be worth every pence. Exquisite, but friendly service combined with some of the most fabulous tasting morsels of food I've ever experienced (and I've... More

The quality and value of their Lunchboxes are outstanding .Well worth the visit with professional and non intrusive service. We have been going to this restaurant since the very beginning and it continues to improve.

We booked this awful pretentious place for a friends birthday night out. The table was booked for 7pm but by 10pm all we had been served with was a bowl of peas. The venue was packed with pretentious 'look at me's' but the service was appauling. The cocktails are overpriced, poor quality and lacked imagination. The bar staff and waiters... More

We went to Wabi on a family evening out. We were very disappointed by Wabi and felt that the cost of the evening was not worth it. What was good: Pre dinner cocktails were good albeit a bit pricey Food tasted very good What was not good: It took ages between courses to get our meals - the "reason" was... More

Went on Saturday with a group of friends for a birthday and I have to say I was extremely impressed. The food was beautifully presented and tasted just as good. The stand out dishes were the Beef, soft shell crab buns, lamb chops and black cod. I cannot wait to go back! Very nice to have a restaurant of this... More
