This is a newly opened restaurant. Last night was our first time at Wagaya, and we loved it. Good food, reasonable prices, and fun using a touch screen to order everything. Food and drink arrived within minutes of ordering. You order and eat at your own pace. Lots of options too if you don't like Japanese food. It is rated 92% on Urbanspoon

Weekday Lunch

A few of us from work popped in for lunch mid week, we were seated straight away, great way to order on their touch screen, bento boxes are awesome! Reasonable price for a great selection of yummy food. No split bills so prepare your funds. Definitely will go again!

My husband and I went there before the opening time, I saw many people were waiting for outside (I can tell how popular the restaurant is). I was quite worried that tables might be full but I was wrong...we got a table!! I loved this place because of the service, it was quick. Everything you order, just choose on the... More

Nice for something different, very authentic food combined with the usual fried western faves. Sashimi is always fresh and tasty, as is the sushi in general. Staff are a little rude (I have visited 5 times so far...so it's not bad enough to bother me, just something to note) you order through touch screens and it seems hey just get... More

We had an excellent first visit to Wagaya. What impressed us was how organised the service was and how fresh the food was. Each dish arrived promptly and all were very tasty whether hot or cold. The only problem I felt, that as a person who suffers from chronic arthritis, trying to get in to the lowered seating was difficult... More

It's like in a Japanese faiy since the very first moment you enter. Food is delicious, the interiors are very artistic and it all has a magic in it. Super sufficient and helpful staff. No.1 in Australia on the Japanese Foods list!

Slightly difficult to access due to 3 flights of stairs as lift was faulty. Parents ended up being escorted by the friendly staff to the kitchen lift to gain access to the booths. Booths are ok but again difficult to get in and out of. The food however was awesome. Easy to order touch screen menu at the base of... More

Came here just before closing on a Monday evening so admittedly not the best timing but the food was too heavy and a little Westernised for my liking (I'm not a fan of lots of mayonnaise in sushi). Though the computerised ordering system was fun and effective it meant there was little-to-no human interaction, something I really enjoy when eating... More

We loved this place! We didn't have a booking but were lucky enough that some people were leaving. The touch screen means fast & efficient service and the food arrives soon after ordering. We had the prawn dumplings, butter fried scallops - particularly scrumptious!! - pork pancake and tempura veg udon. All delish & perfect amount for two of us.... More

While this is not the most authentic Japanese food, the restaurant is modern, there is a decent selection of food and drinks and their special dining and function rooms are really cool. I would recommend this for almost any event - corporate, family, friends or date. The whole atmosphere suits.
