One of the few places i can say that i have never had either bad food or bad service. Popped in after doing a bit of early morning shopping & were greeted with friendly attentive waiting staff. As in most wagamama resturants the food arrived very shortly after ordering and was delicious as usual. One to always rely on!

I have loved Wagamama since I used to go to the very first UK branch, in Bloomsbury, London, over 20 years ago. I was so happy when, having moved to Basingstoke in 2002, a branch opened here about a year later! The food is universally great - fresh, delicious, and spicy - and staff are smart, cheerful and knowledgeable. We've... More

Came here for a quick lunch whilst doing some Christmas shopping. The queue was pretty long when we got there so had to wait a while to be seated. We ordered chilli squid, prawn dumplings and a juice drink each. The juice drink seemed to take ages to come, the chilli squid was like rubber (very overcooked) and the prawns... More

Came for the first time today and will definitely be returning. Staff are friendly especially the two young blonde girls, they're so helpful and all have great knowledge of the menu. Food very fresh and tasty. I love everything about it

Cannot rate this place highly enough , the food always tasty and fresh tasting. The flavours , a chilled out atmosphere perhaps more so because I went on a Sunday afternoon, just what I needed as a cure for a hangover. The revamped menu with new additions like firecracker chicken ,one word AMAZING. Will continue to come back here again... More

Never disappoints in standard and speed of food being served. Staff always attentive. The only thing that let's this place down is the noise, the sound of other diners seem to bounce off the walls so can be difficult to hold a conversation when it's really busy.

This is the second time we have been let down by Wagamama, Basingstoke in the last three visits. The food is freshly cooked and tasty so we want them to get everything else right so we can enjoy the experience. The visit before last they forgot to order my food, this time my food arrived cold. The rice was stone... More

Been here countless times. Never had a bad experience or meal. The service is swift, the food arrives in good time even when busy at lunchtimes as you would expect. For years I always went for the beef ramen soup but lately, I go for the firecracker prawns. They live up to their name! As a quick bite to eat... More

I love Wagamama. I am vegetarian and I love the fact they have so many dished with tofu. Ok the food comes out at different times, yes you usually have to queue and then sit next to strangers...but the food is so tasty I don't mind all of that. The staff in Basingstoke are always so friendly too. It's not... More
