We had a decent table for 4 in this busy restaurant aimed at speedy service. We shared a couple of starters which were very tasty bites and all had different mains enjoyed by all. My only complaint was that rice is cooked a bit al dente. Good service and reasonable value overall.

Wagamamas never fails as a top place for my family to dine out to. The food is always amazing, especially the 'Chilli Squid', the service is always great so I'm unable to fault this restaurant!

Always great for a lunch. Tasty food, they will even change your dish if you don't like it. Gets busy at lunch time.

Went on a Friday evening with the family and it was very busy but they managed to squeeze us in. As there were 5 in our party we sat alongside a 3some so we were extremely snug and overlapped a bit. However the food was great as always and the meal was successful. We have eaten here a lot since... More

Visited Wagamama Basingstoke one lunch time with a work colleague for a change from the usual cheaper places. As always, service is quick and brutally efficient - you'll probably be warned that food turns up when it's ready rather than to the table as a complete order which is fine provided your partner(s) don't mind the lack of manners while...

I had visited a Wagamama in central London about 12 years ago and was not that impressed. Friends persuaded me to go to try the one in Basingstoke. OK - the main course was wrong TWICE - and was sent back twice and was correct on the 3rd occasion. A new and novel experience! I received my main course as... More

I often have dinner at this Wagamama branch but this time was slightly disappointing - I ordered takeout and found that the sides I ordered were crunchy and not cooked properly. Apart from that it was good, but that was slightly worse than usual.

This is the second time I've tried Wagamama - and I only did so because friends rave about it, so I was sure I missed something the first time. I don't think I did. Nothing against this particular location - the service was fine and the restaurant was as expected. My husband and I went for lunch and ordered appetiser... More

Called before the cinema. Not exceptionally busy but wasn't served until we kept asking. We had Surendra chicken curry. The flavour was very good but the portion was tiny, and I'm the worlds smallest eater. We also had the tuna, which we were assured would be served medium but was overcooked and tough. Prawn starter was good but way overpriced... More
