The place was fabulous, the food was great (the Dragon roll is a must!!!) and the service was quick and extremely professional. It's a perfect place for a romantic dinner ( I regretted I invited my... More

We have now been here on two occasions and both have been fantastic. Started with a cocktail downstairs and then went upstairs for dinner. The food is fabulous. A great selection of beautifully presented meals. Plenty to offer for all diets. Service is good and attentive but not overbearing. Its not cheap but well worth it for a special occasion.

Went here for drinks. This place serves really gorgeous drinks. The service is really good but I do not like the way they charge the gratuity. I like to have the choice but having said that i did not mind on the occasions I was there as I would have given one anyhow.

This is a little gem in Horsham! Went here with a friend after work and we started the night with a cocktail at the bar on the ground level. After this we moved upstairs to try the food. Although it is a Japanese restaurant the menu items are served in a 'tapas style' and are great for sampling a few... More

This was our first meal in Wabi and I was not disappointed. My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening. Just the two of us. The food was tasty and fresh. The service was superb. There was music playing in the bar on a Saturday night. This meant for an upbeat atmosphere when we had finished our meal and... More

Lunch is especially good value, but the fact this was our fourth/fifth or sixth visit tells volumes. We're not so sure about the evening cocktail/drinks style ... we go for the food.

The waiter asked if any of us had any dietary requirements, my wife mentioned she was a vegetarian. We had various meat only dishes that came out... More
