Tasty and quick

I don't usually do noodles, but my husband took me there for lunch. Hot, fresh and tasty food. Pleasant waiting staff, but I am not keen on the overused phrase "hi guys" "what can I get you guys". All eateries seem to think we like this!!!! Slightly pricey. Acoustics not conducive to having a... read more

Went here last night for dinner, actually haven't been in to this Wagas in years - only when it first opened. The food was utterly delicious with so much lovely choice, We had the chilli squid, pork ribs, raisukaree & beef teriyaki soba, great friendly service and good value for money. The place itself was lovely and clean. Well done... More

Had a fantastic first time experience at Wagamama, Firstly i have never tried Japanese style food before so did not know what i was going to expect. The menu has lots to choose from, so one could say you are spoilt for choice. I went for teriyaki donbori and i was pleasantly surprised at the size of the portion and... More

Me and my partner ate here as we have several times and as usual the food is great as is the service. I had the beef teriyaki don buri and she had the chicken both were spot on. Oh and the chilli squid is excellent.

Had a great experience at Wagamamas on a busy Saturday night. Food was excellent and served extremely quickly. The vegetarian food we had was flavoursome and filling. Could not recommend this place enough to other veggies. But the delight of the evening was the service. Our waiter Cameron was incredible! Extremely good at his job. He quickly got anything we...

This branch is normally good. However we tried the firecracker prawn dish as a take-away. There was just 5 small prawns in it! Rip-off! There wasn't as much sauce as there is normally too. Shame.

When this restaurant first opened in Basingstoke we made a mistake in our selection of dishes and were a bit disappointed. So it was along time before we tried again. On the second visit we put our trust in the waitress and she listened to our likes and dislikes and made recommendations which really hit the spot. Since then we... More

We went for an early dinner before the Brit Floyd concert. My wife's first Wagamama visit, and my second. Even though the restaurant was very busy, the service was quick, and the food fresh and so tasty. Our only criticism, understandably on the occasion, was that as newcomers we were not given a lot of time to read and absorb... More
