Not sure about this place. I know lots of people that really rate it but i for one do not. I have eaten here three times and twice not been very impressed, could be down to choosing poor dishes but the ones i had didn’t taste fresh. I had a chicken curry here and i am pretty sure the rice was microwaved which for an oriental restaurant is not a good sign! Cheap and quick though
Some who have visited Japan do not like Wagamamas as what is served is over priced and has a touch of the bland.
'Wagamama' is a Japanese word for selfish and I’d agree.
Wagamamas in Bristol is...The Emperor's New Clothes....plus Uggs.
This is the first Wagamama which I visited nearly 8 years ago. Everyone who like asian and fresh cooking will love this. Every meal comes fresh cooked from the kitchen, all waitresses are very friendly and you wil love to come back.
Try the fresh juices and take a dessert (Chocolate fudge cake)!
Wagamama is fantastic when you fancy eating out with friends but don’t want to break the bank…
The relaxed dining style is great for loads of friends to get together…
Beware though… Chicken Katsu curry… the sauce alone has 2000 CALORIES… so its Chicken Chilli Men for me - yum
Very varied restaurant here and can easily go either way. However most of my experiences have been good, food has been fast and always tasty.
Recommend the Katsu Curry.
They do occasionally bring out the food for the same table at differnt times but you are warned about this beforehand if they are exceptionally busy. But this is never a good thing and was always a big No No when I was working in a kitchen.
Also the food and drinks can be expensive for what you get, but you can quite often get good offers if you look on the internet and sign up with there website.
I personally really like the place but can easily see why some people are put off.
I have eaten here many times, for years, but I’m only giving Wagamamas 1 star as I have had good experiences in the past, but a few really really bad ones recently that have resulted in a “never again”.
THE STAFF is usually really nice, so nothing bad to say there. But THE FOOD has been very. very. bland and badly cooked the last few times I have been, and that doesn’t go well with THE PRICES that go up and up every month. Sorry, Wagas.
Quick, reliable Japanese noodle bar, friendly service and the food is consistently good, rather than great. It’s great location on the Triangle serves to make it very popular with students and the after-work crowd. I can’t say this branch offers anything different to any other Wagamama, but if you’re after a noodle fix at a reasonable price you can’t go wrong!
Great value, very very tasty. If you go when it is busy (most meal times) it can be very noisey and slightly squashed in , but thats part of the style.
I definately recommend ginger Chicken Udon, I like this dish very much and I think it's one of their most popular one.
The seating is laid out in bench style with a very wooden look. The menu is fairly extensive and serves food which in my opinion is far more authentic than you’d get in the smaller japanese restaurants. Service is good, prices reasonable and I would recommend the Edamame beans with chilli seasoning. Lush.
Just a brilliant restaurant. A great concept and suitable for most pockets. They do lots of special offers too if you check their website. You can have noodle soups, spicy food, veggie stuff, freshly squeezed juices and fabulous white chocolate and ginger cheesecake. very busy and excellent service. Don’t go here for a quiet meal for two though, as you have to sit on benches at shared tables. Always good quality food and a great atmosphere.
I love wagamamas for its blend of sweet and sour and spicy and crunchy and firm! the prawn dumplings are the best and i only ever order the yasai udon (or is it amai - i think it may be the latter) for a meal. It has a tamarind sauce and prawns and tofu and thick noodles. The green tea is free so I usually get that and maybe a glass of wine as well or a super fruit juice. The juices are great. The duck dumplings are also superb. The noise level is the only problem with it and if you’re not sitting by the windows there is a constant hum and buzz which I think they keep so people can leave quickly. Very quick service and we go there for a quick tasty meal when you don’t want to linger. The dessert is the best ever, at least the chocolate fudge cake with wasabi is incredible. Try it!
I love asian food so went to visit my wagamamas. The staff were very friendly and helpful and they have activity packs to keep the younger ones amused and a special childrens menu.
The service was very quick and everything arrived at the table piping hot, things did arrive at seperate times but we had been pre warned of this by our server. The food is served as sooon as it is ready. Unfortunately my meal was incredibly salty and when I complained our server said that no salt is added to the food, however he took my meal away for the chef to look at. He returned to say that it was very salty and that the base stock used had been way over salted, my meal was the first to be using this stock and they had to then recall some over meals whcih had been sent out with it. I was told I would have to wait 20 mins or I could choose a different dish which would be quicker. With my servers help I chose an alternative, which was delicious. All my children finished their meals, and really enjoyed themselves.
I was a bit dissapointed when the bill came and they had charged me for my 2nd choice which was a few pounds more expensive that my original choice. I had expected them to waive that after being served an inedible meal! Because of this I would be unlikely to visit the restaurant again as I can hold a grudge for a long time! But I would still recommend it to others if its the type of food you enjoy.
This is a pretty good restaurant but kind of weird as you seem to sit on a bench with other people. It is not like a normal restaurant but more friendly and sociable. The food is normally pretty good and service is quite quick.
Shockingly bad service here, we had to wait 20 minutes for our drinks, and two of the main courses came 20 minutes after the others so I had to wait for my dining partners to finish before mine arrived! Food very average, tastes no different to a supermarket bought sauce. Will not be back
I’ve been recommending Wagamama’s for years, and was happy to see a branch open in Bristol.
The food is based on Japanese noodle bars, but has interesting twists. One of the best things is the flexibility. Most dishes can be adjusted to be prepared for vegetarians and vegans, which makes it a hit when your dining group has dietary differences.
I like to try a different main course every time I go and have yet to be disappointed. The portions are generous, the service quick and the seasonal options and dessert can be amazing.
One can have quite a filling meal for £8-£15 (depending on what you chose to drink), and, if pressed for time, can get the food as a takeaway.
The only downsides are how loud it can get when busy and if in a large group, you only have long table options (the seating is fixed tables and benches).
This restaurant is easily reached by many busses and there is on street parking as well as a parking garage a short walk away.
Wagamama always gets me back for more, the service is friendly and fast, the food is tasty with good portions, the prices are reasonable. What more can you ask for? One of the few places where all the family clean the plates, including my fussy 3 year old!
Great outpost of the Japanese chain restaurants. Often a small queue to get seated but turn over is fast so you never have to wait long. The staff are friendly, helpful and accomodating towards small children. If you aren’t used to it then sharing your bench and table with strangers can be off putting but it really isn’t as scary as it seems.
The food is very good and mainly consists of noodle and rice dishes with many vegetarian options. The drinks menu is varied and includes super healthy freshly squeezed juices which are very tart and lovely. Chopsticks are provided but there is no shame in asking for a fork if you feel defeated!
The price is very reasonable (expect to pay about £10 a head) and it is a great basic place to stop for lunch while shopping in Clifton.
Wagamamma’s restaurant is definitely highly recommended. Service is excellent due to the technology used – your order is taken and zoomed through to the kitchen electronically where it is then prepared! Staff are very friendly and have extensive product knowledge. Food is always hot, fresh and delicious. Lovely selection of food with generous portion control! Vegetarians are welcome there too! Prices very reasonable – give it a go!
