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.

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 Service was quick however my chicken was hard and chewy and greens looked out of date.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
