“Hairy Goyza, good service and shopping centre atmosphere...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Had a meal out at Wagamama in Cheshire Oaks. I've been to one in London, and one in Manchester (at least 5 times) and always there is a great atmosphere and interesting restaurant. However, the one in Cheshire Oaks is slightly lacking in atmosphere. We ordered Duck Goyza and there was a human hair entangled within the filling. The waitress quickly dealt with the situation and took the cost off the bill. Despite this blip (which wasn't the end of the world) the waitresses were pleasant and on the ball. The main was lovely - ginger chicken udon noodles - and the new additions to the menu were good too! Easy and accessible after an unexpected shopping trip.

“Expected more!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Service quick-too quick!!!! Food bland. Pricey for what you get-restaurant price for Chinese take away standard food. However staff very friendly indeed and friendly atmosphere in general. Great for very quick bite to eat but don't expect anything more than this- not more romantic nights out or family celebrations-more of a quick bite if in rush to get to the movies.

“Was nice but prefer wok & go!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

tried this place a few weeks ago after people were raving about it

We got a table quickly which was good, the waitress on was new and couldnt really explain the menu to us, so we just went with safe 'noodle' dishes.

The food was nice, a bit average though and if you like wok & go, i think you'll prefer it there as its the same type of stuff!

boyfriend had pad thai and i had firecracker which was nice and spicy, just what I like :) noodles could have been better though

its worth trying and maybe other dishes are better, but for noodles i will stick to wok & go!

“Mmm wagamama”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

I am already biased as I love wagamama. The service was quick and friendly, the food is cooked fresh and is always yummy.

You have to accept that your starter might come before your main but that just adds to the fun!
