There’s a new reason to head over the rapidly developing section of north of Bonifacio Global City, at Uptown Mall. Watami Grill & Sushi Bar is a Japanese dining concept from the ever-impressive lineup of Bistro Group restaurants, and should be in any foodie’s list, especially those with an affinity for Japanese food.

Watami Grill and Sushi Bar – A Unique Dining Concept
The first thing that strikes you as you visit this branch is how intimate and casual the vibe is. Smaller than the other branches, the dining areas almost invite banter and conversations, as opposed to a very quiet and romantic date.
Watami is inspired by the Japanese izakaya, which are small drinking establishments that are almost omnipresent in the streets of Japan. A popular hangout for hardworking Japanese, the izakaya concept is all about relaxation and kicking back over good food and cold drinks.
