Went for lunch with a friend yesterday. We couldn't decide so we shared two dishes. Lovely, fresh, tasty and delicious.

Service was fast and friendly.

Went there yesterday after traveling from Portsmouth to visit Southampton. I wasn't really that familiar with Japanese food before, but I'd definitely have it again in the future after visiting this restaurant. The waiter was helpful and friendly, and the food came quickly, so 5 stars for service. Don't think there's anything bad to say about the food to be honest, everything was great. Would definitely visit again, hope the one in Gunwharf Quays is as good as this one!

Wagamama is always fantastic and this places doesn't disappoint. We never seem to hit a busy period and the seating area is elevated so that you avoid the usual West Quay crush. The Wagamama menu is varied, interesting and the cater well for children, both in terms of customer service and a substantial kids menu. Clearly if your child is a fussy eater then there is always KFC or one of the other junk food providers down below.

Wagamama is located at the very top of West Quay shopping centre, in the revamped food court. The restaurant looks down on other eating places: McDonalds, KFC and Café Rouge. This restaurant also has a take-away option.

Wagamama is a franchise, which serves consistently good Japanese food in a vibrant setting.
The name Wagamama actually means naughty child in Japanese.

The restaurant chain has several features, that have since been adopted by many catering places. Orders are taken via PDAs, and wirelessly networked to the kitchen. After orders are taken, food order numbers are written on customers' paper place mats and food is delivered to the table once cooked, which means dishes are not necessarily served at the same time.

The food was freshly prepared, awesome flavour, fast friendly service, and on the whole really healthy, low in fat. I ordered yasai wagamama pad-thai, which is egg-fried rice noodles in a tamarind sauce with fried tofu, egg, beansprouts, leeks, chinese chives, spring onions, garlic, ginger, mint and chillies, garnished with coriander cress, fried shallots, peanuts and lime. This meal was delicious, and the portion of noodles was generous. They will give you chopsticks to eat with, but you can ask for a fork if you like.

I would recommend eating at Wagamama to try fresh Japanese style food in a modern noodle bar setting!
