I'm writing about the store that has recently opened in Watford - very small yet exceedingly popular since it's opening. Ive been waiting for a Wagamama's to open in Watford for AGES and so it seemed like a good thing to take a party of four for an evening meal. I was shocked at the price and service. Nowhere else have i been charged over £100 for just four people. The service also leaves a lot to be desired, i.e. too many different waiters serving you, receiving starters after your main or...

Visited Brighton branch, husbands soup style meal with fish was nice as was starter of duck, however my meal wasn't very pleasant, there was no explanation shown of what the types of noodles were on the menu (as far as I could see), and when my meal arrived the noodles were not appealing "Urdo" or something similar, which looked like large worms putting me off, I could not eat it and so ordered an alternative which I was able to eat but consisted of rice with curry sauce and chicken like...

I visit Wagamama's pretty regularly - in fact I have a regular date with one of my best friends and we always go to Wagamama's. We've been doing this for about 5 years now so given that we've moved about a lot we have been to loads of Wagamama's (we did once try PingPong, but it just wasn't the same). In that time we have never been let down once. Wherever you are the food, decor and atmosphere at Wagamama's is always great, and although it's not cheap, you'd end up paying a lot more for the...

We went on a shopping trip in Norwich in march, we had a lovely lady explain how you order and explained the menu, the waiter was very polite and the food was so fast to arrive and really fresh. Only thing is the portions are huge, my husband ate all of his but i struggled to eat half of mine so dont over order My 5 year old loves noodles and my husband and I were discussing whether Wagamama would be suitable for him as he has severe peanut allergy (where adrenaline would have to be...

Firstly, this is not Japanese food Secondly, I 100% get the whole noodle bar/canteen style thing but not for the price Thirdly, is is expensive It is not suitable for groups or couples or dates or families This company is currently being sold for hundreds of millions of pounds, they are robbing you blind!

Wagamama has become my partner and I's favourite place to eat out after trying out several of their restaurants mainly in the west Midlands but also around Europe. I always have the same thing and like to make alterations to my dish. They are fine with anything you want to take away, swap etc and the food comes out quickly. It is soo tastey! and much more satisfying than any other meal out. The staff are always friendly. Once or twice there have been issues such as drinks being forgotten... (read more)

I have eaten in several Wagamama restaurants across the country - Brighton, Salisbury & Leeds are those that I've visited most frequently.
Every time I've visited, the staff have been friendly and attentive, and seem to do their absolute best for us.
Even when the restaurants are packed, your food arrives on time without error and you're seen to quickly.
Although the food isn't particularly cheap in terms of the type of restaurant, you do get a huge portion, which I suppose makes up for... (read more)

On Saturday evening, around 5.15pm, we (two of us) went to Wagamama Westfield branch and we found ourselves in an unsatisfied situation due to some factors:
1. We noticed that there were plenty of vacant seats suitable for two, yet we and some other customers were made to stand in a queue.
2. Once we had the seat and ready to purchase order, we called upon a staff in grey shirt and she told us that she will send our waiter to take the order. After waiting for about 5-7 minutes, we called... (read more)

I was very impressed with the quality of service and the food, we had my 1 year old grandaughter with us and the waiter was fantastic, getting a high chair and toys for her immediately. The food was served quickly and was very nice, the service was second to none. I would recommend wagamama's to everyone without hesitation (read more)

The food was horrible. I ordered the wagamama ramen and was absolutely disappointed when the food arrived. The noodles werent even ramen to begin with and the soup tasted more like a bowl of chinese soup noodles than anything else. Truly unauthenthic japanese food. The only plus point was the nice environment and friendly staff (read more)

I love Wagamamas!
The food is so yummy, and it is a nice friendly atmosphere. The waiters and staff are friendly and it is a nice atmosphere. I love one the Ragman. All the food's tasty and wholesome.
Only once, out of about the five or so times I've been, I've been disapointed with the quality but it was still lovely!
I'd reccomend it to anyone! (read more)

My first visit to a Wagamama's restaurant was actually in London's West End with a group of friends. I had a dish called yakisoba which was absolutely delicious! Recently I have been visiting their branch in Birmingham, going about once a week. The food is brilliant and the service is very efficient. My favourite dishes are yakisoba, wagamama ramen and cha-han. Drinks are expensive though but green tea is free of charge. Well worth visiting! (read more)

You always know exactly what you are getting at Wagamamas. Most people can find something on the menu that they will love. The ramens are a personal favourite, but the noodles (especially udon!) are always good and i know many fans of the chicken katsu curry. Wagamamas is not the place to go for a romantic intimate dinner, the canteen style seating sees to that. However if you are looking for a quick bite, a somewhat healthy lunch, or filling up when you have a hangover - wagamamas is the... (read more)

I generally love Wagamamas - especially before going to see a film as i know i'm not going to get stuck in there waiting for my food.
Food is always piping hot and lovely, service in Guildford always great - last time sat on my own for 20 mins until friends arrived as i was early and it was chucking it down outside - and they were more than accommodating.
Would def recommend (read more)

Food exactly what I expected from this noodle bar chain - yes, have been to many!
First time there, our waitress wasn't as focused as I expected, none of the real interaction I expect at wagamama was apparent, dishes ending up with the wrong people etc.
Second time we had a different waitress - smiling, cheerful, engaging - much more enjoyable! (read more)

They say there may only be a trace of MSG in the food - from suppliers. I came away from Wagamama in Waterloo and spent the afternoon with palpitations. It has left a bad taste in my mouth. So for anyone who is unable to stomach MSG, I don't recommend Wagamama. (read more)

I have visited the restaurant in Manchester a couple of times now, (mainly the Printworks and Spinningfields near Deansgate), and every time I go it reminds me of why I love it so much!
It's got a great atmosphere, and everyone's so relaxed. They are always in really modern buildings, and the tables are laid out like it's all one big table, so there's a real sense of community!
You are taken to a table, and given menus and asked if you want any drinks. A waiter/waitress then comes back... (read more)

What are those people on who have rated Wagamama's restaurant well? I went one Saturday with two other people (hardly a big party). We each had a noodle dish that came out at 10 minute intervals. When I complained about this, I was told that this is the way it happens. Certain chefs cook different dishes so you won't get them together. When I pointed out that this happens in all restaurants, and you do get your food on time, I was ignored. She simply repeated what she told me. I also... (read more)

The Wagamama Noodle Bar is a restaurant that won't be forgotten. It's on my top eating places list forever! Once I tried the chicken katsu curry I got hooked on Wagamama for good. My aim is to try everything on the menu at least once. Definitely recommended to go for lunch. (read more)

At Last I have found Wagamamas! An oriental restaurant that uses fresh ingredients as opposed to hideous amounts of MSG. Wagamama's is a genuine departure from the run of the mill chinese (it is Japanese for a start). The food comes in generous portions and is cooked specifically for you behind a big counter. It is non-greasy, extremely tasty and, while it may be be a little pricier than the "golden sun", you can bet your bottom yen that it is a damn site better for you. (read more)

Wagamama Noodle Bar in Reading is excellent. Food is really top notch (if you like noodley type meals!)
Service was quick and efficient with the waitresses and waiters more than happy to explain exactly what some of the dishes were.
There is plenty of choice on the menu and meals are very good value.
The only down side was that it seemed more of a fast food restaurant. I wouldn't recommend a cosy, cuddly romantic date here!!! (read more)
