Having eaten at Wagamama on a few occasions now, i thought i'd review it on my latest venture there. Last time i went to Wagamama (Birmingham one) i had a very bad experience where the waiter dropped a bowl of chicken ramen over me. Accidents happen, but the fact my jeans were ruined and my legs scolded and the manager refusing to do anything for me in terms of discount or something for free majorly angered me. Anyway, onto this review! Me and my brother went, and at Wagamama its recommended to have a main and a side. So we both had the same side, tori kara age, which is basically fried chicken with a dipping sauce. Very nice. We normally go for chicken ramen (big ... Read the complete review

WAGAMAMA Japanese fusion cuisine 90 outlets across UK 15 countries Creator: Alan Yau: born in 1962 Knighted: 2006 Initially. while visiting Wagamama, I admit I did envisage carnage if one bench toppled over creating a domino chain reaction; so on entry I did test out the sturdy frame-work with an irresistible calf muscle bench knock. Yep, pretty sturdy this end. The vibration to the other end of the bench was evident going by the customer's quick derriere adjustment, followed by a swift glance of irritation in my direction; yes, blame the newcomer. Having sat on the bench for just a couple of minutes, I was aware of every ... Read the complete review

Wagamama is a chain of pan-asian inspired noodle restaurants and my husband's current favourite place to go! Unfortunately we don't currently have one available in Edinburgh so we either have to travel to Livingstone or wait until we visit friends in other cities. We've now visited the Wagamama's in Manchester City Centre several times and I'll be basing my review on that. Wagamama is what I would call a concept restaurant. It's been about since 1992 when the first restaurant opened in London. There's now 65 UK branches and 37 internationally (but still not one in Edinburgh - grrrr!). The Wagamama's philosophy is 'to combine fresh and nutritious food in an ... Read the complete review

Wagamamas is a chain of pan-asian noodle inspired restaurants that gained rapid popularity about 5-6 years ago. They are all over the UK now as well as in many other countries. I think that these restaurants are great if you want a quick, informal meal, but don't expect fine dining by any stretch of the imagination. The restaurants are all designed around the same concept - the tables are long benches so you are sitting next to people you don't know, and the kitchen is open. They make a point of saying that the food will be served as soon as it is ready so you may not get your food at the same time as other people in your party. This not normally a ...

fast service and affordable prices, yes. anything else? hmm, not really. Wagamama USED to be a great place, back in the day when it first opened. but the more branches opened, the more generic and uninspiring their food became. the chicken katsu, as well as the vegetarian version, are undeniably delicious. but to be honest nothing else i've ever tried has been worthy of my attention. while it is unfortunate that wagamama seem to have lost its unique quality in the process of becoming a pan-asian empire throughout london, there is still something to be said for reliably mediocre affordable food in a city full of as many horrible restaurant as it is good ones. ...
