I've been there many times. But was left very disappointed. The order was taken. I specified that my yaki soba shouldn't have any mushrooms as I have an allergy. The dish came out with mushroom. Told the waitress. Who took it away but no apologies. Came out with a fresh one. I had two mouthfuls when low and behold I... More

I came here for a lunch break as it was nearby and I knew the food well - I was surprised to see that it was fairly quiet (usually very busy at lunch) and this meant it was quiet in terms of sound and it had a good atmosphere. The service was very good and the food came quickly -... More

We finished watching a film at the nearby Vue cinema which ran on until 10:45pm. The restaurant was empty since it was approaching closing time and we can see the staff were finishing off preparing the restaurant for the next day. We were very pleasantly surprised that they allowed us to dine in. I thought they may rush us... but... More

Mt second visit to this restaurant, last time was a few years ago and I please to say it is still as good as I remember it. We happened to go in on the night they released their new menu. Like most chain restaurants it is a little predictable however this is less so with the Japanese style food. Wagamama... More

Wagamamas in Basingstoke gets pretty busy so get here in good time if you have other things to do after you've eaten. The reason it's busy though is because of the friendly staff and its consistently high food standards. Food comes out of the kitchen fast and it's good. We eat here regularly and have never had a bad meal.... More

Does what it says on the tin, you have to choose your food carefully but it always comes out quick and fresh and the juices are out of this world. Food often too salty

Wagamama is a place were you can get very nice food at a resonable price though the quality of the ingredients used is second to none. The service, provided by young and efficient fellows, is quick and careful at the same time. Luca who looked after us (I was with two young colleagues) did spare some time to entertain us... More

I will try to temper my comments as I had a dish that in my opinion was revolting; close to inedible. To be fair I wasn't charged but did get into too prolonged a discussion as to whether it was meant to taste like that. My companion who also tasted it had to spit hers out into a napkin! Firstly...
