“Topnotch Nosh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

This must be my favourite Asian eatery. The food is simply amazing - flavours and amount. Starters, mains & desert for average prices. Mostly bench-type long tables, this has a very casual and friendly feel. Real Japanese beers straight from the 'motherland'. Service exceptional and friendly. If you want, you can get seating closer to the window and a magnificent view across Wellington Harbour.

“ok but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Compared to other Wagamama's I have been to around the world this one does not compare, the service is slow, the get orders wrong, bring extra items to the table and forget drinks. This is not just a one off these things have happened on more than two visits! This branch needs to pick up its game.

“Just average ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

View of the harbor splendid and great service. Food is just average. Calamari wasn't tender, prawn dumplings lacked flavor. Even the PadThai which I thought would be safe was just ok- I've had better at Thai chain restaurants. Given the large variety of fare available in Wellington - you can do much better.

“Always reliable for a tasty meal ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

We love the Wellington waterfront and pop into Wanamama for an agreeable meal without fuss. Tasty, ample and served with a smile. There is always something interesting to watch from wherever you are seated. The huge windows look out on the inner harbour.
