It was our first time visiting Vapiano so the host explained the process to us - order directly at the different food counters, use a card to record your orders and then pay as you leave. We had some bruschetta to start which was really...More

Good Lord, the longest ever wait for a simple starter, clumsy staff serving his mates before customers, poor customer service, never again to this place. Avoid if in hurry or planning to spend time with your friends instead of queuing for 30 minutes😤😤😤

To start off, I like the idea of being able to see your meal prepared right in front of you. You choose from a good variety of pasta choices, the chef asks you what ingredients and spices you want whilst he's cooking up the pasta...More

I visited Vapianos yesterday and was very disappointed with the service. I was at the second counter. I think the chef was new or training as his name was written on his badge in pen. After having waited over 30 mins to reach the counter...More

The pasta was ok, there is variety to choose from. When the waiter there saw me in my veil he suggested the vegetarian cheese because other cheese they serve isn't Halal.

Description
Laid back, buzzy restaurant, loved for its freshly made pasta, pizza and salad dishes. Pick up a card on the way in, choose your dish from the counters and watch it made in front of you. Pay on the way out.
