Good food, but food prices are higher than nearby Hassan and other similar restaurants. That said, the range of meals is impressive, and anything with rice noodles quite tasty from my experience. Side dishes like karrage chicken were good too - about $12 each, as opposed to the mains which are $18 - $24 average.
None of the portions are huge for the money. I've had better sized meals elsewhere. But the food here is hot and authentic.
Recommend visiting with an Entertainment Book voucher or similar which will save you about 25% off the normal prices - making this far more reasonable.
Seating is on long bench tables, in keeping with Japanese restaurant culture. Great for family outings and big groups, probably not the best for a romantic dinner for 2 (as you might be seated across the table from each other, and possibly sharing).
Good value overall, and a nice place for an evening meal.
Went here for a large work lunch. My meal, a chicken curry, was delicious and flavorful, but some of my fellow diners' meals were a little bland, and none of the dishes were particularly large for the price.
Service was a little slow and spaced out in bringing meals but probably to be expected with such a large group. Nice modern ambience.
If you enjoy the hustle-bustle atmosphere of feeling like you are eating in the Orient...you will like Wagamama.
They do the basics of asian cuisine well, and keep things quite simple. My only real complaint is that they don't include enough meat in their dishes, especially the noodles (I suggest ordering some meat skewers on the side if you crave protein)...
Good place for a quick meal on run, but not so good if if you are looking for a relaxing and romantic atmosphere.
Solid 3 stars.
Went to Wagamama at Sylvia Park for dinner and it was a good overall experience. They make really yummy fresh juice of many different flavours and the restaurant is big and clean. I feel as though the food is what let this place down. I mean it was fresh and had large portion sizes but not the tastiest Japanese food I have ever had. I feel like the quality was just a bit low considering the prices of the meals (Around $20). All in all a good experience though!
