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

Japanese menu order via computer screen

A very interesting, novel way of ordering ones food at Wagayu- simply use the touch screen computer, which is located either on the table or wall to order a meal. Benefits of this is ones meal arrives quickly. Downside is that one hardly interacts with a waitress and if one doesn't eat fast enough... read more

I visited this restaurant with a Hen's party group and we had a large private room. I had never seen nor experienced an ordering service where you go to a touch screen on the wall and order your own food and drinks. I must say it worked really well and I liked it. Food was well priced and very nice.... More

Absolutely loved it here, the food is great and fantastic value for money. There was a group of 5 and we ordered so much food from the extremely efficient ordering system you have at your table, so no need to wait for a waiter to serve you, we couldn't believe how cheap it was. If you like Japanese food, you... More

There was a wait for the restaurant when we turned up at 7 on a Wednesday evening but when we sat down we realised why it was so popular. Great selection, fast service, reasonable prices and good food. We'll be visiting again.

Food was decent, enough variety to suit a room of 11 adults and the priced to suit. Cost for us was around $400. Fun touch screen ordering (take your reading glasses). Portions vary, ideal for smaller parties to share. We were told BYO, in Aus, that stands for Bring Your Own, when we arrived we were told it is BYO... More

This is my go to restaurants for dates or friends catch ups. The food is prepared so well and presentable with touch screen ord ring system. The staff are very polite and the best part is how reasonably priced the cocktails are! I always have a good experience with Wagaya. Best to book a table just in case.
