I live in the US and don't get to visit but once every few years. One has a tendency to remember things being better than reality but Wagamama consistently lives up to my recollection. So, so good.

Went here over Xmas break with my two children. Not much else open and happy to go to this old favourite. Despite one child being a particular eater she was more than happy with the gyoza. We also had chilli squid and a chicken udon noodle dish. Nice fresh ingredients and looked pretty on the plate. Big servings so we... More

We tend to visit once a year and this place has grown on me. It still turns out some darn good tucker.We were quickly seated and we had the most amazing, helpful waitress from Northern England. She did ask had we been before and wanted to just let us know that the chefs in the open kitchen cook to order... More

Good for a healthy and decent stop after a stroll along Wellington's harbour. Well made and tasty food although for my liking the rice can be cooked a minute longer and a bit more curry with the rice would really satisfy my liking. We ate here twice.

I've been to Wagamama in London, Amsterdam, Sydney and Brisbane . I found this store to be a bit of a let down. The temperature wasn't consistent through the rice dish, suggesting reheating. The dumplings were not fully cooked with raw pastry. The restaurant wasn't all that busy. I feel there needs to be a few issues in the kitchen... More

Wagamama was terrific. The food was fabulous and very quick. We thought the food would take a long time as the restaurant was extremely busy, BUT, the staff were super focussed and super busy. We shared a number of dishes which was great. We had squid, tempura oyster mushrooms, gyoza, steamed vego ones, deep fried prawn and spinach (these were... More

Wagamama can be compared to other chains like moshmosh or COA, it is not 100% authentic asian food but still very good and high quality. I had traditional ramen and it was nice. Very busy atmosphere, very noisy, but I like the food there. Waitresses were friendly, all the meals came at about the same time. I would go there... More

Wagamama does have a nice vibe; great location; friendly and efficient staff, but the food is just average. As a family of 4 we tried to get a good mix of meals across their range, however all were 'nice' and nothing more. This sentiment also extends to their juices. They sound delicious, look good but they were warm and very... More
