SquareMeal Review of Wagamama Kensington High Street

Credited with bringing the Japanese noodle bar into the mainstream, Wagamama still does exactly what it says on the tin. The menu is dominated by noodles – mostly wok-fried or in broth – & portions are generous throughout. It’s not expensive, either: classic yaki soba, a heaped, glistening plate of wheat noodles tossed with shrimp, chicken, sprouts, scallions, & pink slivers of Japanese pickle, weighs in at a mere £7.60. Mains represent the best value for the hard-up, but for flavour & innovation make room for sides & puddings. A newish dish of glazed chicken wings is a savoury, sticky, smoky treat, while the creamy cheesecake topped with tart Japanese cherries – also new to the menu – is a terrific way to end a meal. Seating is at long, communal tables & service is efficient – too efficient for some, who find the practice of delivering dishes in no particular order an irritation.
