We stopped in the Gallerie to go to the bookstore and decided to eat here. Great choice on our part, Wagamama Raman is excellent, the Chilli Squid and the Gyoza were perfect sides. The pork belly was especially good

We came across this gem on the second floor of a small mall on George Street. Our choices were somewhat limited because of the late afternoon hour on a holiday Monday, but are we ever glad that we ate here! The food cost a little more than we expected it would, but it was worth it in terms of freshness... More

My teryaki salmon was delicious. The staff are efficient but leave you alone to enjoy your meal. Decor is simple (don't expect comfortable chairs). It is a place for a relatively quick but delicious meal.

Did not live up to expectations. We loved the Wagamama in Dublin. Our kids were excited when we saw this one in Sydney. We went out of our way to get there for lunch, but were generally disappointed. The service was fine & the people were nice, but the food was not as good.

One of the worst Japanese food there is in Sydney, and very expensive. I ordered the spicy ramen and although it did look pretty in the bowl, it tasted very bland and small portioned for the prices. Service was ok, albeit one or two waitresses who I felt didn't want to work there and that made the whole experience even... More

It's very hard to get an available seat when come by walking in. There will be about at least 4 or 6 guest waiting for seat during peak hours. The average cost is 30-40% higher than their fellow Japanese restaurant offering similar menus. I then have got an impression that this place must worth the queue and price so I... More

First time eating at Wagamama. The service was friendly and helpful. Enough on the menu to choose from. And when they said it was going to be "HOT" (Spicy) - it was definitely that! It was good value too. I couldn't finish all and did take away aswell.

I have always enjoyed Wagamama wherever I have been and no less here. However, Sydney has so many oriental Asian restaurants this one is really quite superfluous and was nearly empty on the occasions that I visited.

The casual dining environment was simply laid out and inviting. Food was relatively fast, and really tasty. Meals were quite good value in terms of the portion size and taste of each dish. Dessert looked amazing and tasted even better. Better save room for it! Will likely return.
