Good service, nice food

We popped in on Friday night - quite early - which is just as well, as there was quite a queue to get in by the time we left. We tucked into the grilled tuna which was really tasty. Service was fast, efficient and friendly, just what we needed!

My first visit to Wagamamas was not the exciting experience I had expected. Not knowing the various dishes I chose the Yaki Soba. Sounded delicious but I found it dry and tasteless, no sauce with it. My wife had the Wagamama Pad Thai that she said was delicious, and from my mouthful it did seem better, but without the intense... More

Cannot fault Carla and her team everything is just superb! The restaurant is spotless, the service is speedy and super efficient and the food is just always fantastic. To finish off nothing beats the white chocolate ginger cheesecake. This is our favourite Waga's and we just keep going back. Thanks for always taking such amazing care of us. Ciao and... More

Visit Wagas very often - the service is never slow and the food is always excellent. Very filling for a good price overall - would recommend.

Quick chicken udon on a lunchtime works out better value than a subway or Burger King (slime) And the food your getting is cooked fresh, with fresh ingredients and staff that are human compared to the plant life at most fast food restaurants

Often eat out locally after work and we have our favourite places but just fancied something a little different so this time we tried Wagamama. Very friendly staff with good service, not cheap but I guess not that expensive either as food seems freshly prepared and good quality. The only little niggle is the bench seating with no backrest is... More

Only recently started visiting here, because I never liked the look of the bench-style layout. You can be seated on a bench between other couples/parties rather than at your own table, which I thought might be awkward, but it's not really a problem once you're there. The food is fresh and made to order and is incredibly good. We've tried... More

Frequent visitor, being close to the Vue Cinema. Wagamama food is always good. Personally love the Pad Thai. It's a busy restaurant, with seating laid out on benches. I personally don't like the benches. There's nowhere to put coats and bags and seating by the main door would always be a 'no no' for me because of the drafts. Food... More
