Err... while I try to be open minded bout trying new things, I have to say the food here is just pedestrian. You can get the same thing at a food court if not better (see my Gumshara review for ramen fix). Found out from a friend they are part of a chain of restaurant world wide but I have... More

I love wagamama. It's my go to for quick dinner or lunch with friends in the UK but this was a particularly bad experience. I ordered takeout and was given a sticky, dirty menu - strike 1. Then there was nowhere to wait and the staff behaved as if I was in the way - strike 2. The portion size... More

This Wagamama restaurant is located right near Sydney town hall. The food is consistently good and the service too is good. It's not a cheap meal but the portions are big and the food tastes great.

Wagamamas seem to be in short supply in Sydney. Bridge St one disappeared??? Anyway for fans of this brand head to 500 George St in the Galleria level 1 Great Ramen Soup. We had the Teriyaki Salmon and Pork Belly varieties - both delivered quickly and fresh Washed down with a couple of Asahi Beers and everything is good

This is the second time I have been to Wagamama, the first quite a few years ago. There is lots to choose from on the menu ranging from noodles to ramen to meat and rice dishes. I think though for what you are getting it is overpriced. I ordered noodles with pork, prawns and a variety of vegetables and although... More

I tried out this restaurant with my partner for the first time after walking past the shop several times. The service was friendly and attentive and the food was nice. However, it was small portioned for the price tag.

Our group of 8 walked in here Saturday night & had a lovely meal. Good value & very quick service. Great location for a cheap city dinner.

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.
