after watching a TV show that reviews restaurant .. and my love for Japanese food urged me to try this place..it's a Grill & Sushi bar .. I love sushi and sashimi 128525 we ordered in no particular order salmon sashimi, tempura, peppered beef bowl, Caesar salad ( to make me feel less guilty because I know I will indulge ) 128514 assorted chicken skewers, California roll, and a Beef bowl... the verdict??? I LIKED IT! a lot that I will come back again! 128514128514128514
Price is affordable.. service is good, waiting time for rice bowls though is a bit long but was worth it.. Ambience is good.. we happen to watch a live acoustic band playing so it's a plus on the ambience..staffs are nice and efficient.. over all experience? I'll give it a 5 11088️! 10084

Food is good and of quality. Some items in the menu are a bit pricey while some are very affordable. Small portions especially for skewers, something that I wont be getting again if given a chance. Would love to be back to try their other rice bowls.

I have been to Watami at Edsa Shang a few times and have good memories of the yummy food and the good dining experience I have had there. So when my family visited the newly-opened Uptown Place Mall in BGC last Sunday, I highly recommended this place. I think it was a failed recommendation.128532 Firstly, the drinking glasses they gave us had lipstick stains still...not just on one glass but on three glasses! We had to order bottled water instead. Then the place was teeming with flies that we had to ask them to put a candle on our table to shoo the flies away. Thirdly, service was very slow. Fourthly, we ordered their Watami Salad which had uncooked shrimps. They said they were steamed but being a cook myself, I know when shrimps are uncooked (they were still pale white!). The only consolation is that they have a friendly and apologetic service team.

I guess it is a risk to eat at newly opened restos. They seem to be going on a trial run still and are really not ready to serve yet. Try to avoid these places for now and come after 3-6 months of operation. Come on WATAMI...I know you can do better than that!!!

PS: I am really not for negative reviews, but in this case I just think people need to be warned! 128521

Most of the food places in Uptown are still closed so we ended up at Watami. We were famished and opted to go Japanese because most of their dishes don't require a lot of cooking (hehe).

We over-ordered, as usual. When the dishes started trickling in, we noticed how the sushi and sashimi pieces were smaller than the photos on the menu. Anyway, they were pretty okay. The tempura was crispy, the beef rice bowl was also good though they didn't seem to use Japanese rice.

The assorted skewers was the last to arrive. It wasn't hot so I'm not sure if it came right off the grill. The chicken thigh (or skin?) was a little tough so we figured it might have been nuked in the microwave.

Service was so-so. The lady who seated us was pleasant but the lady manager who waited on us seemed lost and confused. When we asked for the bill and also asked for a glass of water, it took her a while to process it. It took a whipe for the glass to be refilled, for the leftovers to be wrapped, and for the payment to be processed. I'd be more considerate if the place was packed but we were the only customers (another table eventually filled up before we left). But seriously, service could be further improved. It could be a lot more attentive, efficient and intuitive.

It was hot too in the restaurant and there were flies. They have an insect repellent machine so I guess they're aware.

Went here for lunch today and ordered the Spicy deep fried salmon roll, the quail egg wrapped in bacon, chicken balls and Salmon flake rice. The rice bowl and salmon roll were both good. A little spicy but they were really flavorful. I also liked the quail egg however I think it's kinda expensive. (75 for a stick?!) Haha! Place is kinda small. Service was good though. Servers were very nice and attentive. 128076
