First time visiting Yakitori and it was wonderful. We went along with friends for a birthday. Our meals arrived quickly and near enough all together. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating to our large group.

Lots of choice, lots of flavour, excellent service. If you actively choose to go to Wagmama over this place, your making bad life choices.
