After spending a whole day running all over it was just what I needed! Two starters main and two drinks came just under £19 cannot complain! Food was made fresh and fast Very fulfilling! The restaurant was perfect lively and fun! Just like all of them!

I was obviously too sober to appreciate the food. I don't drink, so I could actually taste the 'food'. Had several dishes, all tasted like slime. SLIME!!!!!!!!!! Unless you like SLIME and NO atmosphere avoid. AVOID!!!!

We went for a pre-theatre dinner on a Bank Holiday - arriving at +-6pm. Despite the restaurant being busy we were sat promptly. The delicious fresh juices arrived quickly. We had a slight 'hiccup' in that one of our chicken dishes had some prawns in it !! This was dealt with very well by the staff - there was an... More

Very poor service, started out ok but I think a shift change and less attentive staff where the problem. The door into the restaurant is not fitted with an automatic closure or its not working (thought it was fire regulations) so when the door is left open there is a terrific draft. We got up and shut it at least... More

I love wagamamas food so much so I have nothing to say but amazing things. Making me hungry just thinking about it. Great value. BUT! The service in the Leicester square restaurant that I received yesterday was awful!! After we had been seated, We were waiting for 40 minutes before we were asked for drinks and food! They had clearly... More

Visiting this Wagamama just off Leicester Square is like visiting any other Wagamama. But we went here after a long day of visiting London because we really wanted a nice dinner with noodles without having to worry wether it would be good. We only had to wait 10 minutes to be seated and the staff was extremely friendly!

If you have ever been to Wagamanas anywhere else then this one is exactly the same. As it is a franchise the menus are the same and the taste is the same. So if you like this kinda food which I do then you ain't gonna get a bad meal. Only downside is this restaurant is located downstairs in a... More

Visited Wagamama’s for the first time over the weekend not really knowing what to expect, but I was pleasently suprised. The seating arrangement takes a little time to adjust to, that being long tables with smaller benches, so you get to know your neighbours relatively well. Not knowing what food was like I trusted my son to pick something for... More
