So, Wagamama opened this week and off we head to try the new restaurant. British management - Japanese food - Almost all Filipino crew! Well, the combination may be too racial discriminatory but the food and service is overall pleasant.
The food tastes like authentic Asian - but I seriously think that their Ramen is a so-so and that Chowking is better. Sorry, a little biased here. And in Chowking, it's way cheaper. But then again, Ramen is not really my forte. I'm nore of a rice person than a noodle-fanatic.
The ambiance in the restaurant is okay, child-friendly and cozy. Our six-month old had a great time in her baby chair - which is so cute (well, the baby is cuter of course!) There were these kids chopsticks which the kids love and we totally adore the kids meal which are the "mini" meals of the adult menu. I should have asked the mini meal myself.
And the big crayons kept the kids busy while waiting for food - which actually didn't last too long a wait.
If there is one complain - all the juices and drinks are way too sweet, easy on the sugar please! Well, maybe it's because of the freshness of the fruit but we don't think so. Drinks tasted too sugary for our taste.
And yeah, the chairs have no cushions, the kids were struggling to reach the table.
Two complains versus lots of raves. Not bad. I just love new restaurants and their new recruits - we call them fresh blood - great customer service experience guaranteed.
|All cute for the meal!|
|kids waiting for the meal - they were quiet - so cool!|
|he was so happy when he saw the miso soup in the menu!|
|his mini meal yakisoba is really not that mini - so worth it at QR21!|
|and look at him use the kids chopsticks!|
|A real pro now!|
|the mini salmon meal - i ate this and was too full!|
|I forgot what this is called but this is like the Japanese version of calamari with wasabi mayo - gone in seconds!|
|Wagamama Ramen - I just love the tofu!|
|Mai Thai and strawberry drink - not particularly impressing for our taste|
|she loved the Ramen more than I did!|
So, are we satisfied? Yes. Value for Money? We are in between. Would we come back? Maybe. If we can't bear waiting in line for Chowking restaurant chains and we need a quick fix for Japanese/ Chinese food craving!
