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.

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. The atmosphere is relaxed and modern; the first-floor dining room is kitted out... More

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

I love this place - never disappoints. My boy friend and I had the set menu £55 for the TWO of us. Not only was the food great as always the presentation was even better.

I have visited wabi on several occasions and they serve my favourite food in Horsham. I particularly love the tasting menus (currently 2-4-1- on a wednesday) and the lunchtime bento boxes, which I think are brilliant value. The cocktails are pricey but delicious. the decor is lovely, but the last couple of times I have visited I have felt that... More

I came here with a colleague last year and was pretty amazed by the menu. Many, many items I would never get back home in Japanese restaurants in Asia - and with a very interesting twist. Would definitely go back if I had the chance!

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...
