Do not expect a Michelin starred menu or service. The decoration (or lack of it) is below the standards. Anyway, this is not a restaurant to take a date or special occasion. For a quick meal during the day or before going out it does the job and won't harm your pocket. However if you have have any expectation or... More

Time to seat, order and eat took forever. Hot drinks were served cold. Food was decent as expected from the company standards. The service was the biggest thing lacking. We wanted to order deserts but couldn't bare the timeframe. We were In the restaurant for an hour and a half for just the main course and drinks. If you have... More

Central London, you expect to pay more for a night out. Not so at Leicester Square Wagamamas You get fresh food, served quickly and at a great price. Value for money. Sit away from the entrance - a constant flow of customers and it is a bit cold at times as the door gets left open. But do not let... More

What can I say about WAGAMAMAS that hasn't already been said. This restaurant has a good atmosphere and the superb tasting food is served by very friendly and welcoming staff. The portions are excellent value for money. I would highly recommend this branch of WAGAMAMAS. Well done to all the staff

Better than recent meals I've had at Wagamama's. Service a little slow but this was a very busy Friday night. The waiters were all friendly and keen to help us. Very busy but not overly loud atmosphere.

Wanting somewhere for a quick meal wagamama was perfect. The food is good value and the restaurant was in a good location near the Odean at Leicester Square. We arrived at around 5pm on a Saturday and were seated quickly. The only problem was we were near the door which was draughty. We were glad we arrived when we did... More

I love Wagamama. This one is perfect before or after seeings a show as it is close to all the theaters. My favorite is the fried chili squid and gyoza. Plan to go early as this place is popular with theater goers and some favorites may sell out.
