“ok”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Great location along the Thames walk, busy, lively and noisy.

Seated fairly quickly here despite the crowds by friendly waiter who took our order by reques after we waited a bit.

The Chicken Katsu curry and rice was lovely at recent visit to Wagamama in Oxford so we ordered this again..... however here the food this time was warmish on arrival, it didn't look/taste that fresh and the salad had no dressing...not as tasty as other Wagas :(

May go again due to the location but it's just not as good here as other Wagas.

“Fun, fresh and fast”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

Very busy spot Friday night pre-theatre. Staff friendly and helpful but very obviously busy and distracted. Everything arrived efficiently and mostly at the same time, fresh ingreds and great value for money.

“Love this chain”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

I always like the food in Wagamama. The ingredients are fresh and tasty and they offer consistently good quality, whichever branch you visit. We love the fact that there is a really good range of vegetarian options as my partner is vegetarian. The juices are lovely and you can get tea and coffee etc too. It's a quirky place where you sit on benches and you are served as soon as your meal is ready. This does mean you can be eating before your dinner companions are even served theirs. This has never put us off though. I would highly recommend these restaurants.

“Sophisticated Noodles.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had a lovely dinner at Wagamama at Royal Festival Hall after our London Eye experience. Menu is a tad overwhelming, but the wait time for an outdoor table allowed us plenty of time to read and decide. Outdoor tables are tight, diners often literally back-to-back, but everyone pleasant. Great value for the quality of food.

“production line food”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Veteren of the chain but not been to this busy branch. I always order three starters rather than a main as it makes in more interesting.
My first dish arrived reasonably quickly but the waitress when serving it spilt the dipping sauce all over the items in the main dish (so predipping service?) and over the table but was unappologetic and did nothing to clean it up
Food was standard gyoza slightly too crisp otherwise unexciting and ok no more than that
