Wasabi at The O2

Date January 24, 2010 | Map

A little bit of sushi every now and then is a delight. Tonight’s visit at The O2’s Wasabi was a welcome opportunity to have some, and luckily this North Greenwich Branch has a conveyor belt, which makes the whole experience fun. Or stressful, because you really need to be alert, in particular when you have a packed two-row belt on two stories to observe!

Wasabi is one of London’s cheapest sushi chains, and they usually sell pre-packaged sushi items from their refridgerator units. Their conveyor belt at The O2 has only been added at a later stage, and it has now taken over the best part of the shop floor, reducing the space for take-away customers a lot, compared to their original layout. I will not complain, and even though belt prices are much higher, it is still a good value meal. Ok, I admit I have had better sushis elsewhere, for example at the all-time favourite Hare and Tortoise or Soho’s upmarket So Restaurant, yet Wasabi is a solid choice, especially considering the alternatives at this venue formerly known as the Millennium Dome.

And the 360° panorama on The O2 website is cool. Note that this branch has all you can eat from the conveyor belt when there are no concerts in the arena.
