i didn't like the food very much. i thought it was too expensive and not very nice, but it may be down to personal taste. i'd never eaten that kind of food before and didn't know what anything was. there wasn't any explanation of what things were on the menu, so i just guessed at something which looked safe.

Had lunch today in a very snowy Norwich. The thing about Wagamama's is that you always know what you are going to get. The quality of the food is really good. I think what sets the Wagamama chain out from others chains is the quality of the service. Today as always the service was outstanding, knowledgable, friendly, unobtrusive and efficient. Their recruitment stratefy really does pay dividends.

The food is always tasty although service when very busy can be a bit hit and miss especially if the waiting staff have friends in! That aside if you know that meals do not arrive at the same time which they always inform you of if it is your first time, it is great value. I much prefer spending a few £'s more and taking my kids here than a a burger joint. Healthy food and very quick compared to most restaurants and fun. Sometimes being seated next to strangers on the large tables can start some engaging conversations, if you want (My kids seem to want to!). A great place for a family meal but of course try and avoid the busy periods unless like at any popular restaurant you don't mind having a bit of a wait for a table.
All in all a great place for a quick tasty no nonsense meal that is FRESHLY cooked.

Love the food in Wagamama, it is delicious! Been with friends, family and my partner. On this occasion I went with my mum and we enjoyed our meal. We fancied another dish half way through our main and this was fine. We were well looked after. Good wine, good atmosphere, good food and great service. Fab.

I used to come here a few years ago but haven't recently so decided to give it another go. They have revamped the menu but the restaurant is still the same.

The restaurant was very busy at Saturday Lunchtime with a queue at the door, staff were quick and efficient though so tables were flipped quickly and nobody waited long. Despite it being busy staff remained helpful and friendly. The drinks and food orders were taken quickly and arrived quickly.

Having been to Asia I know the food isn't going to win any awards for authenticity, but it wasn't too bad either. Gyoza's had a good taste and consistency, but the Ramen lacked something and were a bit bland. The food did all taste fresh, so big points for that ant not following the trend of a lot of Norwich restaurants in serving up reheated frozen rubbish.

I wouldn't go here specifically for a nice meal out, but its a good option if you are in the area and need a quick reasonably priced meal.
