We have never had a bad meal at Wabi and yesterday evening was no exception. The early meal bento box is amazing value. The squid, pork belly and lamb chop with rice and vegetables were all delicious. The passion fruit sorbet was gorgeous. The manager...More

The menu was interesting. I have been to this site previously and enjoyed it, however this time I was extremely underwhelmed. Service and quality of food has gone down and a make over sounds a good idea all around.

We go for lunch quite regularly, which are good deals. The tasting menu for dinner is pricier but also good for special occasions. Service is always good, and it's a popular spot for cocktails too.
