Have eaten at Watami when it was in Greenstone shopping centre. Food was wonderful, and service was superb.
Upon my recent visit, the food is still wonderful, but even though we were only 2 customers, service took over 2 hours. We were stunned that their service delivery was bad, considering the high quality food we received upon complaining.

It appeared that their main focus appeared on serving the walk-ins, for takeaway more than the two tables that were in the restaurant.

Very good sushi - fresh and also an excellent variety on offer. Platters offer good value for money. Staff are very friendly.

Watami is constantly serving some great Sushi and Chinese food, at outstanding value. Half price offers on Saturdays, Sundays and Tuesdays. The food is always good and they have a great selection of cocktails as well. Highly recommended.

Watami is a treat for anyone who loves Japanese food! The menu is extensive and varied, and reasonably priced.
