Just Good

Been here once and had ramen. Service was very good but I would expect the food to be better. Working in a Ramen bar in London I would say that i know what I expect from the dish. Simple restaurant with great potential. Would I go back? Yes, why not!

I've been to Wagamamas on multiple occasions with a group of friends, and in those circumstances, the concept of canteen style communal dining and shared benches made sense and was fine. However, on returning with my girlfriend for a late lunch, it wasn't a terribly pleasant experience. Food always has been great, can't flaw it there (although the prices ARE... More

Ideal place for a quick late dinner. The food was fresh, tasty and arrived quickly which is exactly what we needed after a very busy tiring day. Staff were friendly & helpful.

This was my first visit to a Wagamama's, and it'll certainly be my last. What a miserable, uncomfortable, unwelcoming place it really is. I genuinely don't get the idea of eating canteen style at long benches. Going out for a meal is supposed to be an enjoyable experience, this was almost anything but. The only redeeming feature of the experience... More

Wagamama used to be our go to restaurant, but have been let down more often than not by it recently. We gave this one a go for dinner and were disappointed once again. The starters were great and arrived quickly - tasty ebi katsu but gotten so expensive!! I know the staff tell you that the meals will arrive at... More

Id always thought Wagamama's was one of these over hyped chain restaurants that 'hipsters' rave about, but one evening me and some friends were looking for somewhere to have a catchup and we decided to go here and i was pleasantly surprised! Our group of 3 went on a Wednesday evening around 6pm and had about a 20 minute wait... More

We were tired and waned some nice food that we knew would arrive fairly promptly and I've been to this restaurant several times before, and a few others in this chain and have enjoyed each visit - until now. Okay, so restaurants change their menus from time to time, and even some of the fittings - alas not for the... More
