Our first ever visit to Wagamama, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The food arrived fresh an very quick, although I do feel it is a little on the pricey side. The staff are friendly, but a bit understaffed. We had try an get the attention constantly, at times it was easier just to go to them. But... More

Service was ok, staff friendly, place seemed very clean & food was tasty. Strange cafeteria style seating but it wasn't busy so we didn't end up cheek to jowl with neighbours thankfully.

This Wagamamas is such a nice place to go for a meal. The layout is relaxed and modern and the service very good. The food was decent, what you expect from a chain.

The interior has been improved but at the price of the food. Compared to a year or two ago, the staff are slow to serve and brusque when they do so; the food is very inconsistent, often poorly made and sometimes rather cold. It's always busy, but there are better restaurants nearby, and far better Wagamamas elsewhere.

Visited Wagamama in Leicester a number of time last month and again this month with family and friends. The food is absolutely brilliant and so is the service from the staff. Excellent menu to suit all tastes and it's always delicious. Go and experience the ambience and cuisine.

This is our staple 'go-to' place before catching a movie at the Showcase. The food is always freshly made and delicious and I've never had bad service. Would ,most certainly recommend

Me and my girlfriend went here with me convincing her to step out her comfort zone and try something new, after hyping it up we were both suitably disappointed, she had a broth but was flavourless and how we imagined dirty water would taste like, I picked something random of the menu and it was ok, if it wasn't for...
