“Wagalicious”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I've visited Wagamama's on numerous occasions and each time the quality of food is to a high standard with a great menu which has lots of variety for many different taste buds.

We also have take out (collection) which is to the same standard of the restaurant, and special attention is paid to the cartons and appearance of the food.

The staff are very warm and friendly, and always make your visit enjoyable.

“Great food but why so pricey!!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

I love Wagamamas food, its consistently good whatever location I go to but why are the drinks so expensive? For just two glasses of wine and two beers it was £28, If it hadn't been my birthday I would have stuck to water.

“Great food, good service”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

The new menu has arrived and whilst so of the old favourites have gone they have been replaced with some new dishes across the menu. The staff were very helpful in telling us about the new dishes and offering recommendations. We went for all favourites, teriyaki chicken donburi which was so good with the peas shoots and raw carrots it was so fresh tasting and the chicken raisukaree which was hot and spicy can't wait to go back to try some of the new food people new to us had spicy beef wraps that looked really good will be heading back there soon to try

“Excellent pre-cinema dinner”
Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

We loved our trip to Wagamama before seeing a film in Festival place. The staff were absolutely excellent - positive, friendly, attentive and well-trained. They knew their menu, and didn't hesitate to give us advice about the menu.

The food was extremely prompt, and excellent quality. The firecracker chicken was gorgeous - tasty, fresh and not in-your-face hot to the point of blasting out the other flavours.

We would have liked an individual table, rather than long-bench type seating - but that's not a fair criticism, and that's what you should expect from this kind of restaurant.

Cost was reasonable given the location. We will definitely be back.

“Good, tasty Asian food - if not really authentic”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We often go here for treat lunches and especially enjoy the speedy service and the deep friend chilli squid. Some dishes though should be avoided as they are not at all authentic - the pad thai in particular is not good at all.
If you want authentic, go to a specialised restaurant, but for fresh, tasty 'Asian' food Wagamas is very good.
