Wabi, the new restaurant we've designed in Central London has been getting some impressive reviews of late - here's what some of the critics have to say about the interior:
Wabi is all about simplicity and elegance, starting with the waterfall behind the staircase as you arrive, and continuing through into the service and clarity of the dining experience. Hungry Londoner.
Now I don't want to over sell Wabi, so I am going to be conservative and simply say, "This is the best Japanese restaurant I've ever been to". Wabi, named after the aesthetic movement characterised by simple undeclared beauty. Here reflected in the seductive décor of this large basement furnished with dark wood tables, low lighting, plush seating and a wall water feature. Pebblesoup.
Step out of the noise and tourist hustle of Holborn, hand your coat in at the door and step down into an underground bar and dining room. Wabi is softly lit with dark wood tables and bar, beautiful Japanese ceramics and walnut chopsticks. The bar’s separated from the dining room by potted bamboo, but the tables are open-plan, with a long dark suede banquette on one edge of the room. ViewLondon
Following the success of his Horsham outpost, Executive Chef Scott Hallsworth, formerly of Nobu, has opened a second of his Wabi restaurants in Holborn. As you’d expect, Wabi London is a sleek, high-end affair. Esquire.
