i do like wagas always had great food and service but they have this weird system of "cooking to order" so the food comes out as and when, i.e your partner could have eaten all their food and you haven't had anything as it comes out as and when it is ready, or another example is i ordered gyozo and katsu curry and halfway through the curry they bring out the gyozo??!! as long as you are aware of this it makes eating there much better!

I regularly visit Wagamama and they are very consistent. I am fairly boring and always choose the same dishes, which are always the same good quality, prompt and fresh. The staff are friendly. Can get quite busy but the tables are turned quickly and efficiently. Great place to visit often & you know what you will get, wouldn't go for a special occasion but would go for lunch.

I have always been a fan of a quick stop at wagamamas, as i think the food is tasty and the portion sizes great. However recently i seem to have had much more rice than meat and some items such as the gyozas have got smaller, which for me doesn't make it such great value for money.
I still enjoy the Katsu curry and it is one of the best I have found outside London. I also really like the relaxed informal atmosphere and the quick service. However nowadays wagamamas isn't the treat it used to be. So although I'll still visit, i wont go as often.

You know exactly what you are going to get here and that is both comforting and reassuring if a little predicable.. Its a fun place with great service in a simple setting. My one wish is that all the food could come at the same time so everyone eats together in your party

The food is good value and service is generally quick. I'm not a big fan of the layout and don't always want to sit with other people when i go out for dinner so usually go to Wagamama's for lunch. Good for a big group of you though cos you can usually get everyone on a table! Wish they delivered
