This place is an absolute highlight in Chinatown Brisbane. You can watch the cook slicing the fresh salmon in the open kitchen. The order process via touchscreen is very easy and efficient, and orders were delivered quickly.

This restaurant has been a regular favourite of mine for many years. With only a doorway entrance on Duncan Street, Chinatown, they have to be great, as they don’t get easy walk-in patrons off the street. It’s their fabulous reputation that keeps them very busy...More

This is an order by screen restaurant similar to many places in japan. The food, service and atmosphere are great and quite authentic. Will be back!

This is a newly opened restaurant. Last night was our first time at Wagaya, and we loved it. Good food, reasonable prices, and fun using a touch screen to order everything. Food and drink arrived within minutes of ordering. You order and eat at your own pace. Lots of options too if you don't like Japanese food. It is rated 92% on Urbanspoon
