“Brilliant Staff”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

I'd never been to a Wagamama restaurant before but I'll definitely be back after the great experience I had in York. The staff are superb - extremely friendly with smiles on their faces and very attentive during the time I was there. The Japanese food was delicious. I chose a bowl of sticky rice, chicken gyoza and some tori age. I thought the food items were somewhat expensive for what they were but I can't really complain as they were so tasty. It was quiet when I visited during early evening. Well worth coming here if you enjoy Japanese dishes.

“A delicious experience!!!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

This was my first visit to a Wagamama restaurant and after my experience it is a restaurant that I would definitely recommend to others visiting the area. The staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive throughout the meal and the atmosphere was pleasant. I ordered the yasai katsu curry which was delicious and at a reasonable price of £8.75 for the large portions you are served. The sweet potato, aubergine and butternut squash deep-fried in panko breadcrumbs,was complemented beautifully by the accompanying curry sauce and sticky white rice. An all round enjoyable dining experience, and somewhere I would definitely re-visit in the future.

“Excellent service”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

I have never been to restaurant yet, particularly a chain, that caters so much for people with dietary requirements. Staff couldn't be more helpful with suggestions for alternatives. Food was tasty and ample time given between courses.

“Great for casual group meals”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Went for a group birthday meal a while back and found it to be an enjoyable place to eat. Wouldn't recommend it for a romantic meal as the atmosphere is quite loud and busy but no complaints for a group meal. We were given a big table right in front of the window, a little way off from other tables which was ideal for us. Waitress was good with explaining the menu and was attentive and came back regularly to allow us to order more drinks etc.

Food was enjoyable- dishes appear a touch expensive but are good value for money as you get a lot in them! Would go again for group bookings or casual lunch.

“Food reasonably tasty, slightly overpriced”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

You know you've entered a chain when no one greets you. The place is too large to have anything other than an impersonal touch. Having said that, the side orders of endamane etc, main course of teryaki chicken were fresh and good to eat and the service efficient and brisk.
