We have been going to Watami ever since it was based inside Greenstone. The new location is great and the food is Awesome, still the best sushi around. Friendly staff and great selection on their beverage options, loved the Chinese beer.

We visited Watami with a Groupon voucher. Service was prompt. First time for us to taste fried chicken and fried salmon "sushi". Sushi in a sugar cone was also a surprise and tasty. We also enjoyed the green tea.

Very poor ambience. Infact very sad if I may say

We were looking for a quick bite and stopped by this restaurant. Even a Chinese customer who sat next to me was heard complaining about the Sushi that had no fish, just a big chunk of rice rolled in seaweed.

It seems like a poorly managed place overall. Definitely not worth the money.

Needs major renovation and training to staff. The waiter just memorises the order and keeps repeating before taking the order and as I predicted he mixed up the order.
Food is really bad. We regret coming here at all.

Please avoid.
