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.

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

The popularity of this chain mystifies me. The food is uniformly tasteless and no two people eating together ever get their food at the same time. They really don't deserve to be in business and I simply cannot fathom why they are
