“You know what you get and get what you want”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Very good again from a tried and tested formula - quite a few noodle bars opening now in York but Wagamama is the best by far.

“Delicious Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is quite an unusual layout for a restaurant, depending on where you sit there is a different atmosphere. Ive been here a couple of times now and although I loved the food the service always seemed to be a bit lacking. I understand this is designed around speed but it seemed like there were not enough staff on and as the place gets very busy, you can feel overlooked and it was hard to pay. That being said the noodles here are cooked to perfection, very tasty food and the fried apple pies which are like dim sum were amazing, which isnt something I often say with deserts in restaurants.

“Lovely food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Great food despite being a chain (always very cautious). Fast service though not keen on the "it comes when it's ready" attitude as you don't all eat together, not ideal if there's a group of you. Also when dinning in a group the tables aren't pushed together so you are quite far apart

“Good restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The restaurant is roomy, fresh, nice and clean. I do love the Orangery style hall. Young kids friendly and staff are helpful there. Overall it is better than most of other Wagamama in the country.

But best to be early bird or visit in weekdays.

“Yum !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

I ate here on two consecutive nights ( I love their food lol ! ) On both occasions the food & drinks arrived quickly. Staff very attentive but not in your face. The firecracker prawns were better than what I've eaten in my home town Wagamama's ! The white chocolate & ginger cheesecake was to die for ! 3 courses with drinks set me back just under £25 - well worth it !
