We have been coming here for years and really enjoy the food but on our last visit something seemed to have changed and the food wasnt nearly as good - its disappointing as it was a family favourite

I went to Wagamama for a quick weekday lunch. There were tables available but a large group of hungry workers were left in line for 15 + minutes. The reason appeared to be lack of staffing but wasn't explained. The food was average and we had eaten more than half our meal before our drinks arrived. The staff were friendly... More

Waited quite awhile 40mins busy Friday night. The pork ribs were standout but my salmon was over cooked and my Wagamama ramen wasn't quite as good as I remember. The teriyaki chicken donburi I was told was dry and the rice was slightly undercooked. Banana Katsu beautiful though. Service faultless.

This is a very good Asian restaurant. Original and at time interesting food and drinks, quick service, nice views of the harbour if you get a good table. The place can become quite busy, but there are many tables and people seem to sit for relatively short periods of time -- so never encountered a problem or a wait. Mid-range... More

The food at Wagamama is consistently delicious - it always tastes so fresh and full of flavour. It really does do service with a smile no matter how busy it is and both times I have eaten here in the last month it has been very busy but the staff never once seemed flustered, they kept serving with a smile...

I dined here for dinner with my fiancé and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We arrived without a booking and were seated within 5 minutes of arriving. We ordered the edamame, crumbed prawns and pork gyoza to share between us. All came out within 10 minutes of ordering and were delicious and flavoursome. For our main we had the steak... More

I recently dined here with my finance' and we really enjoyed our meal. We had three entree dishes to share and a main each. The food was bought out really quick and hot and had a heap of flavour. It was really busy though which meant the service was a bit slow at times. Overall though we will definitely be... More

Went for lunch with a friend and selected four starter dishes. Duck dumpling, chilli squid, tempura mushrooms stuffed with prawn and crispy prawn. Each plate was presented beautifully and good quantity. Came with little bowls dipping sauce. I partook of a glass of full bodied Syrrah. Would recommend as the selection is so vast could satisfy any taste buds. Was... More

Didn't have a reservation but got seated within 10 minutes. Front of house staff were very nice and server was quick and very friendly. Appetizers arrived fairly quickly and delicious. Although I would have liked the crispy squid a little crispier. Mains were plentiful and very tasty. Little wait between arrival of our mains but it was less than 5... More

Wow what a busy place! but the Service was fast and attentive. We had 45 minutes before ferry boarding and we had more than enough time to order and eat. The food was fabulous and fresh, would definitely go back next time I am in Wellington as it is close to Ferry terminal and downtown wharf.
