Disadvantages: Seating for large groups
I've been to wagamama a few times now and have always come out full and satisfied.
They seem to be everywhere now, all kitted out the same, with rows of benches all facing forward and quirky coat hooks to hang your coats and shelves under the tables for the bags. A distinctive and innovative look for their restaurants. Great if you are just in a small group but I found it a little annoying when we went in a large group as you are all in a line, which is a little unsociable!
The menu takes a little time to get your head around if you haven't been there before but a summary is provided and the staff are happy to help. The noodle dishes are lovely, the soup dishes a little less amazing, huge portions but weak flavour.
The menus are on paper in front of you and orders are scribbled on these which I thought was a great idea for the staff keeping track of orders and also for the diner.
Where Wagamama excels and other oriental style restaurant fall down is on their desserts. So often they are forgotten, but with Wagamama they are a real strength. Inventive and unusual dishes such as chocoalte fudge cake with Wasabi sound odd but really work.
The menu is well priced for the quality of food you get and I really recommend giving wagamama a try if you haven't done so.
Summary: A very good restaurant
