Drove past Wawa-one of my favourite restaurants in TBR area & was so upset to see it might have closed. Although sometimes a bit on the quiet side, it has always been a great source of well made Japanese dishes with really friendly & helpful staff (I'm an embarrassing sushi/sashimi novice btw). Website says they have had a bad water leak which has resulted in closing the restaurant & undertaking some structural work.
Hope they open soon-they are a refreshing change to all the chain restaurants in the area. If you haven't visited, please do when they re-open. You won't be disappointed.
Anyone know what has happened to Wawa? The food there was excellent every time we visited - and the staff there were very friendly and professional. A lovely little place that would have been packed out if it had been on Bermondsey Street - unfortunately it seems that insufficient customers were prepared to venture as far as the North end of Tower Bridge Road. I hope they haven't gone for good - but they will have been closed for 6 months soon, so not looking good.
Really sorry to see this happen. It was doing all right until the problems with the leak. I went quite a few times and enjoyed good food there - very fresh sashimi. The site is a blighted one, but this appears to be a particularly serious case of bad luck.
Such a shame - Wawa was an excellent and reasonably priced Japanese restaurant and it would have thrived on Bermondsey Street. Seems that a lot of potential customers have so little imagination that they don't walk 2 or 3 minutes off the beaten track
