We had tickets for a show, and our train was late, but we got fitted in by a really friendly waiter, he was helpful, happy and the best service I had from a waiter in a long while, food was served fast, and so tasty, always love the atmosphere in these restaurants, and even though this is in a basement,...

Arrived at tea time on a Sunday to find the restaurant less than half full only to be told we had to wait for 20 minutes for a table because they were 'busy'. Didn't get the opportunity to sit at the bar but was politely pointed to a corner of the restaurant where my two children, wife and I could... More

We have been here on a few occasions but this time was not good. It has really gone downhill. The food wasnt too bad but when I went to use the toilets they were in a terrible state! No toilet paper in any of the toilets and they obviously hadnt been checked for hours. It was not busy in the... More

Love the wagamama's I usually go to. This one was quite a disappointment Ordered the Chicken Ramen, usually quite easy to make. Service was quick however my chicken was hard and chewy and greens looked out of date. Had to send the ramen back because the chicken was inedible.

Tasty, funny and easy food. A great option for a reasonable price in the busy London center. The big soup bowls are great and all the food is made with fresh ingredients

I ate at Wagamama 3x on my latest trip to London, twice at this location (one lunch, one dinner). Both times service was OK, nothing spectacular. Neither time I visited was the restaurant terribly crowded. The food was delicious and consistent. (As I eat gluten-free, I got the same dish that I knew was GF every time.) I highly recommend...

As always, had a delicious meal for a late lunch. Service was prompt and friendly, and not at all crowded given it was a Saturday afternoon. Perfect pit stop.

We love Wagamama - ever since we were introduced to the restaurant at Festival Hall, we've frequented them all over the UK... and why? because the food is ALWAYS great... and there's the key.... many branded restaurants around the UK have questionable quality and differences in standards, food presentation etc... for some reason Wagamama never have this issue. So what... More
