Food was excellent, as expected for Wagamama. Staff were happy and attentive and gave us a very warm welcome. We hadn't booked and although busy, they found us a table and we were served quickly.

A great range of Japanese influenced meals to choose from, suiting all dietary needs, including gluten free. Suitable menu also available for children, again with dietary needs considered. Food was freshly prepared and tasted delicious. Service was excellent. Can never fault Wagamamas.

As always the service was great in Wagamma. But really friendly here. Squid starter was lovely and chili salad faultless.

Went in for lunch on a Friday afternoon and it was a very good experience. The normal Wagamam experience - no nonsense good food option. That being said the price structure of Wagamama has constantly creeped over the last few years. This used to be a £15 per head establishment whereas now it's closer to £20. You are bound to... More

I love Wagamamas and this particular brand if great. The food is cooked fresh to order and is always consistently good and prompt. They are really helpful if you say you need to be away by a certain time at lunchtime, or even in the evening if you are heading to see a show. One of my faves...

Didn't arrive until 10:30pm on Saturday night, so knew we were pushing it time wise. Still got a pleasant welcome and service was good. Wasn't particularly struck on the meal, but that was more to do with the strong fish sauce that wasn't expected, so not to it personal taste.

wanted somewhere different to visit and came across Wagamama down the bay in Cardiff. It was early evening and there was plenty of room, however, as the minutes went by, so the place began to fill. The Staff were willing to share advice and put up with 2 children who were excited and tired in equal measure. Good food and... More

Food is served as and when it is ready at Wagamama, which is a change from the norm. Everything is fresh and made to order. The staff are helpful and friendly. Would return in future.

This place is never as good as the restaurant in Mill Lane, Cardiff. Came here with my daughter on a damp and dreary Sunday. Food was excellent - prawn raisukaree and daughter had one of the udon noodle dishes washed down by healthy drinks. Service good. Main problem was that the restaurant was boiling hot on a damp and humid... More

I know people that rate this place so highly that when my friend wanted to go for her birthday I was genuinely looking forward to it. Arrived and straight away we were advised that food was just brought out as it was cooked which was fine as nothing took too long anyway. The portions were tiny, the flavour was bland,... More
