The food is decent, but the seats are so uncomfortable. Often when I consider going to Watami, I check whether they have brought in new chairs. They are cheap material, and give way in the middle. Bad for my back!

I'm a regular and frequent customer of Watami. Unfortunately the restaurant closed its doors on July 17th. Another small business feeling the results of LRT construction in Waterloo. Loyal customers are hopeful Watami will find a new location.

This place has very bad service. After ordering, I had 4 other waitresses ask me to order again. Also, sushi was very average. If you like Americanized sushi, come to this place. If you want authentic Japanese sushi, I do not recommend this place. Although...More

Very expensive for the food you get... Although Japanese restaurants tend to have awful service, this place took the cake. I asked for tea and by the end of the meal I had not received water or tea but only an empty tea cup. I...More

We came here on a recommendation from friends, who like good sushi that doesn't taste like fishy, and is an all you can eat buffet. Great recommendation, food was very good quality, presented well and service was great too, just place. Their prices are in...More

This city region has been drowning with buffet sushi restaurants that focuses' more on quantity rather than quality. If you want to experience quality > quantity, then come here! Infact, the portions are large so the price is similar. The servers are always so friendly...More

I come here at least once a month and the food has always been top quality, fresh, beautifully presented and overall amazing! The food is authentic, as the staff and owner are Japanese. Definitely comparable to some of the top sushi restaurants in Toronto! I...More
