“Beyond expectations”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

I've been to the Canterbury branch twice now and both occasions have been wonderful.

The food is well-prepared with fresh ingredients and the portions are very generous.

The menu has something for everyone - from vegetarians to noodle-lovers to chilli addicts and the flavour combinations for each dish are beautifully balanced.

Service is prompt and friendly and the atmosphere is incredibly comfortable.

I'd recommend this place for price, great food and it's location. Well worth it.

Thank Philip D

“2nd time - not bad”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

We've been to the Wagamama once before - and went back again, having used the one in York 3 times whilsty on holiday there - yes - it was THAT good.
The Canterbury one doesn't rise to the same dizzy heights as York, but at least the food is consistent, the prices good - but oh, for some padding on those hard seats!!!!

“Lovely food!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

The food is always nice in these restaurants & today was no exception. Only drawback we found, was that many items on the menu were unavailable.

“We're regulars!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

This Japanese noodle bar is a favourite place for my teenage daughter and I and we visit at least once a month. Latest visit was with two teenage girls and we went for our usual chicken ramen (a big soup bowl of noodles with chicken pieces) - I had one with more spice. The bill came to £47 for one three course meal, one two-courser and a one course, plus drinks. We love the free green tea and always finish off with it. There always seems to be new staff but you can count on whoever you get being lovely. If it is your first time, make sure you know what is what by looking at the helpful guide to the various noodles etc on the back of the menu otherwise you won't know what to expect - but the staff will always explain the different dishes too. There is a good selection of starters and salads too and the desserts are delicious! Next time I go I will be braver and experiment a bit more. Seating is at long tables so at busy times you could be sat along a whole load of people. One tip I'd give is to go here out of normal lunchtime hours as it is obviously a lot quieter and you'll get a table to yourself. There is also a Wagamama at the Ashford Designer Outlet which provides a welcome break after shopping!

Great service, fantastic food..can't fault it :) food is freshly cooked to order and they don't hang around to cook and bring it out, so great if you want a quick lunch with no hanging about.
