Great Japanese food

Starting with the elderflower drink, the options galore at this Japanese cuisine restaurant with wooden seating. Select as er your choice or rice, noodles and sides and each dish will definately make you come back for more. A must visit for Japanese dishes

Great food and service as usual here. Smaller location, or felt that way, compared to others. Seems service at these locations are superior. Food is consistently good.

First time to Wagamama believe it or not. Service - Good Food - Good Ambience - Poor - it's in a very ugly (and hot) basement

To say that we are in Leicester Square and eating a really tasty and filling dish for under £10 is pretty good! The staff were really friendly, though ever so slightly slow. Definitely recommend this Wagamama.

We visited here because we like the Wagamama in our home city and thought we would try this London one when nearby. Although it is essentially in a basement and I felt a little cramped, the service was attentive, the food was tasty and it wasn't too expensive. I probably would return again.

Wasn’t sure what to expect as these are starting to become more of a fast food trend. I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh the food was. Fun atmosphere, large crowd, but fast service and very good food. I would certainly go back again.
