Wilst we love Japanese this was the worst we have had. The rice was crunchy, and while the staff were great the quality of the food was less than average. Very dissapointing. The advice is while in Wellington and feeling like Japenese don't bother

Delicious Asian food with a blend of Chinese and Japanese style. The restaurant is very noisy as its crowded most of the times and we had to share a table/bench with another group of people. Also, there can be a long wait on weekend dinner, lunch times. But The food totally justifies the long wait. The staff is also very... More

Whoever loves fusion or spicy food must go there. It is Japanese fusion restaurant. Food, service were good. Small place but enjoyed a lot. Not that much expensive. For 2 person with 2-3 meals you will cost 50-70 bucks.

Err... while I try to be open minded bout trying new things, I have to say the food here is just pedestrian. You can get the same thing at a food court if not better (see my Gumshara review for ramen fix). Found out from a friend they are part of a chain of restaurant world wide but I have... More

I love wagamama. It's my go to for quick dinner or lunch with friends in the UK but this was a particularly bad experience. I ordered takeout and was given a sticky, dirty menu - strike 1. Then there was nowhere to wait and the staff behaved as if I was in the way - strike 2. The portion size... More

This Wagamama restaurant is located right near Sydney town hall. The food is consistently good and the service too is good. It's not a cheap meal but the portions are big and the food tastes great.

Wagamamas seem to be in short supply in Sydney. Bridge St one disappeared??? Anyway for fans of this brand head to 500 George St in the Galleria level 1 Great Ramen Soup. We had the Teriyaki Salmon and Pork Belly varieties - both delivered quickly and fresh Washed down with a couple of Asahi Beers and everything is good

This is the second time I have been to Wagamama, the first quite a few years ago. There is lots to choose from on the menu ranging from noodles to ramen to meat and rice dishes. I think though for what you are getting it is overpriced. I ordered noodles with pork, prawns and a variety of vegetables and although... More

I tried out this restaurant with my partner for the first time after walking past the shop several times. The service was friendly and attentive and the food was nice. However, it was small portioned for the price tag.

Our group of 8 walked in here Saturday night & had a lovely meal. Good value & very quick service. Great location for a cheap city dinner.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
