Description: This is a newly opened restaurant. Last night was our first time at Wagaya, and we loved it. Good food, reasonable prices, and fun using a touch screen to order everything. Food and drink arrived within minutes of ordering. You order and eat at your own pace. Lots of options too if you don't like Japanese food. It is rated 92% on Urbanspoon

“Very good Japanese”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Went as a group of 5, we sat in a comfortable booth that could seat 6 people. The ordering system is screen based, where you can order from your table. The service is very good. We had numerous dishes which were all very good. The restaurant has an extensive menu. Prices are very reasonably. Would definitely recommend booking as it does get quite busy. There may be better Japanese restaurant around, but this restaurant is very good value for money and I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Nice place, shame about the music”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

A dimly lit building divided into small intimate cubicles, with an interesting touch screen ordering system (in English, Japanese, Chinese and Korean). Food was good, reasonably priced and came very quickly, but the music playing was electronic glokenspiel supermarket music!! Nothing recognisable, and rather annoying after a while(and I like many different kinds of music). This didn't enhance the atmosphere, instead it helped to destroy it.

“Food good, atmosphere great.”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Went here for a family meal and enjoyed it, the atmosphere was very modern, and the food was quite good.
The touch panel ordering system and speed of service was wonderful, we were served very quickly after making choices from the wide selection of items on the menu.
Having lived in Japan for many years we can confirm that the meals are very Japanese in flavour and style. A nice surprise to find actual Japanese staff working there, recently there are so many Japanese restaurants run by Korean or Chinese who cannot even manage to speak the language, let alone produce food that tastes like it's Japanese.

“Great place for casual dinner out with mates”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

A great selection of japanese food without the pressure of ordering off a confusing menu. Instead you select and order from a computer screen which for someone lacking in knowledge about japanese food was a real relief. BYO as well which is a bonus. Strongly recommend it.
