We always come back at wabi. The service is great.We always are well served. People very attentive to you. I love they cold sake with floral tones. Love the simplicity with quality. I always complain about atmosphere it should be more at the ground floor at the bar. The drinks are amazing but there is no more to look forward.... More

A first visit to Wabi for us and I have to say I was very impressed. A buffet was on offer for Sunday lunch and it did not disappoint. Will go back again soon.

I attended the business matter awards where wabi won an award so wanted to go and experience this lovely place, it was not what I thought.. The place itself is very nice but we could not even get bar bites for 45mins and the staff where very matter of fact about it, not much costumer care on the evening we... More

Been to the Tuesday ladies night with friends a couple of times. Nice atmosphere and much better value than other days with a set menu and cocktail deal. We had a few ladies who didn't like some items on the set menu but the staff were very accommodating in letting us swap out these items. Also been a few times... More

I have visited Wabi's a few times with friends & sampled their delicious cocktails, always served by very friendly staff in very attractive surroundings. I hope to sample their food in the not too distant future, but my friends say it is delicious. A real hidden gem in Horsham & different from all the chain restaurants.

My family thought we would give the Sunday buffet lunch a try after my daughter enjoyed the experience the previous week with a friend and having read good reviews about the restaurant. We got there just after the opening time at midday and were waiting to be served. I thought the staff were just busy getting the buffet ready because... More

We were a small group of 6 family and friends. The whole expierence just hit the right note. From the staff on the door, the management, the serving staff and the chefs were fantastic. We were taken to a private booth. Again, a nice touch. The menu was explained to us and advice was given & questions answered. She (Shame... More

Lovely old building close to a multilevel car park. Great for all 18-30 clobbers and their hen do's.

Really lovely Japanese food, beautifully presented. The staff were knowledgeable and attentive. The children's menu was good too. (The only slight downside was the music wafting up from the bar downstairs which spoilt the Japanese mood, but I'm still giving them 5 because that might just be me!) We will be back for the Sunday buffet ...

My husband took me here as a surprise lunch for my birthday. Having never had a Japanese meal before I was unsure what to have but as I eat pretty much anything it wasn't a problem. The setting is very modern and comfortable without seating being crammed together so we were able to talk. I ordered a 'June bug' cocktail... More
