Wagamama Restaurant Review

: This is the original that started the fashion for cheap and cheerful noodles, but these stylish Japanese noodle bars pack in businessmen, people up from the country, visitors and students. Guests sit at long wooden benches and tables while the servers with mini computers take orders. Portions are generous, and tastes cater to the adventurous. The teppan-fried yaki soba is recommended; freshly squeezed-to-order juices are great. This, the original Wagamama, is a great fuelling stop for the British Museum, while the others are good for shopping forays, and prices are reasonable (dishes around £7-£12).
