    Good family restaurant. Healthy pan asian food. Located in all the prime locations in London. Love the gyoza. Kids menu is very good.

    This is a chain that offers all different sorts of Asian noodle dishes - udon noodle soups, ramens, fried noodles with prawns, etc. Rice dishes as well. It is all tasty and fresh. You don't have private tables - everyone sits along long benches. But it is inexpensive, heathy and very good for a quick lunch.

    This is part of Wagamama, the big Japanese / noodle chain, and they are all pretty alike. The food is decent and fairly cheap and it's always an efficient experience.

    Oh man Wagamama is incredible and affordable Asian food - get the chicken katsu curry!!! (They now have 2 in Boston also so you don't need to pack on the "PoundSterlings")

    The food is okay, but really not worth the prices that they charge. It's always ridiculously crowded and it feels sort of like being shoved into a really crowded middle school cafeteria. I don't think it's worth going unless you're starving and you want to sit down somewhere and order from a menu. The food isn't disappointing, just over priced for the cafeteria-like atmosphere.

    Great food at great prices! I love Wagamama! I just wish they would have some of these out west. Boston and New York get all of the great English restaurants.

    Long running and widespread chain of noodle bars. Decent value, reasonable food quality. Fast-ish food available spontaneously and most everywhere.

    I suggest getting the Katsu Curry Chicken. I had the vegetarian version of the Katsu Curry as well and they were both good. The vegetarian version was made with breaded sweet potato, eggplant, and squash. The sauce is amazing! I love Wagamama. I need to live by one.

    OK, so I have grown up in SoCal and might have a different take on what good Japanese food is. For a chain noodle bar type place, it is not bad at all. And considering London prices, it's not too expensive. But I am by no means overwhelmed by how good it is. If you are looking to eat something other than fish and chips, it's a consistently decent option.

    This London chain does Asian food. It's not bad, it's not expensive, but overall, it's not worth a special trip. There are too many great restaurants in London to bother with spending pounds sterling and time here.

    Overrated. Okay food served in an modernist zen atmosphere. This is now a mega chain. Mom and pop shops just do it better. There just isn't any reason to eat here. That said, I love the name. Ironically, anyone who is "wagamama" probably won't like it.

    An Asian food heaven. Communal seating takes a little to get used to and the wait staff scrawling your order on your place mat as they enter it in to their hand held ordering screens are off putting at first, but don't discount Wagamama. Here you can find a fusion of Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Korean and im sure even more. Its a vibrant atmosphere and not somewhere to pick for a quiet meal. On the lower end of the budget its perfect for a quick meal. I love running in on a cold day and getting a hot bowl of ramen noodles or a chicken katsu curry.

    Fun environment, food is good and the communal tables are a great way to get to know the locals. It's a chain (there are a few in London, Heathrow, etc), but not on the same scale as EAT, Pret, etc. Lots of noodle dishes to enjoy!

    The food is average at best here but the atmosphere is great for mixing and making friends with the locals.

    Really good food!
    They seat you on long tables with other people, that's just how it is, deal with it.
    To those of you who have been in Hertzelia (Israel), this is the restaurant that inspired Zozobra.

Description

Chances are you’ll have to wait in a line before you get in the door of this popular canteen but it is worth the wait. You’ll be served soups, chilies, juices, and more at long, shared tables. The interior design may be minimalist but the food is anything but. The pan-fried Asian food at these Japanese ramen-style bars have made this British-headquartered chain popular the world over. Japanophiles with a yen for a truly authentic taste might want to look elsewhere, but most people have no problem happily slurping up their large plates of pan-fried noodles with zeal.
