Really good fresh food with an Asian influence, that caters for most palettes. Service is fast & efficient, and the building overlooks the harbor. With floor to ceiling windows, there is usually something to look out, with the occasional ferry sailing past.

This is a popular restaurant located by the Wellington waterfront. The interior is spacious and you get to see the food being cooked at the side counter. We ordered a selection of food and it was all delicious. I loved my wagamama seafood ramen which was substantial and very filling. We tried some appetisers like the gyoza (fried dumplings), grilled... More

We were a large group but the service was efficient and the meals came quickly. You sit at long tables rather like at a university cafe. There were positive comments around the table about the quality of the meals. My only complaint is about the lack of options for vegetarians. The three at our table found it hard to find... More

Went to Wagamama for dinner last night, we were seated straight away, had lovely attentive staff, fast service and the food was outstanding! Awesome view and would love to come back here again. I would recommend to come early as it can become very busy, get the tofu chilli salad!

Busy as a bumblebee at 7pm on a Saturday night - but quickly got to the head of the queue and the 3 of us seated at a bench 4. Quick friendly service with only a short wait for food to appear - comes out as it is ready so mains appeared before starters - but we were well warned... More

We came here with 2 almost teeenagers and 4 adults - 4 of the party were locals who love the place... short wait due to group size and then despite a quite informal appearance - excellent tasty and unique meals were enjoyed by all ! Definitely worth a visit and its a change from the Table clothe and quiet places... More

Although this could never be described as authentic Japanese, it is fine for a meal with no expectations.

Curries and noodles, fusion japanese type food. Fresh and tasty, I recommend the edamame to start with and then I usually choose a couple of smaller dishes as tapas. The duck is lovely.
