We walked up to the restaurant Saturday night, to see a fair queue - which is actually a good sign. The hostess was organised and soon found us a table. What is so good about Wagamamas is that the standards are always good: cheerful and knowledgeable servers, tasty food served on hot plates, great atmosphere. What's not to like?

Went with family. This was a typical Wagamama experience.... Great reception. Attentive and informed staff. Timely service (all be it in that Wagamama style). Food delicious. In our experience we always have a good time at Wagamama. Not a place to wine and dine - but great food and all that

Very disappointed by our visit this time and we go to wagas regularly. My food wasn't hot enough and the egg was in a scrambled lump instead of stirred through the noodles. It almost seemed as if had been taken off another plate and mixed with more noodles as a lot of the noodles didn't even have the sauce on... More

Lovely lunched enjoyed with my 2 little ones. They provide excellent high chairs for the little ones so they can still be on the table with you. My 2 enjoy the noodles and think it's great fun and our server was making a fuss of them both. My prawn dish was extremely tasty and my children ate all of theirs.... More

Popped in for a bite to eat one lunchtime and fancied something with a bit of a kick. Opted for the Chicken 'Firecracker' with noodles and it certainly lived up to its name. Not overly hot but a nice flavours cooked with some good chillies. My fiancée had some sort of stir fry and seemed to enjoy it. Great quick... More

We have visited this Wagamama spot on and off since it opened however many years ago. As seems to be the case with most big chains they started off incredibly well. Over the years the food has stayed relatively good (except the chicken katsu curry which we now avoid as last few attempts had a very synthetic taste which suggests... More

Really good food. Lots to choose from a varied menu. The food was cooked well, and had good seasoning over all. So the chef knew his business. Really helpful staff who offered a kind and good service. I will definitely come back here.

We love Wagamama & has been eating in this place on several occasions. Food is lovely & staff are friendly. They sometimes change their menu & I do like to try new dishes however the ones that became my favourite they took it off the menu completely. I think it's now too pricey & portions are a lot smaller too.

Good food, good value and quick service. Excellent choice for a tasty quick meal. Window seats are quite good for people watching. The kare lomen chicken dish is fantastic not overly spicy but flavoursome. Defo visit again.
