I've heard that the new wagamama menu was much better and I was excited to try it. The new branch in Bromley is similar to the other wagamama chains - open kitchen and canteen like. Presentation of food was excellent. It was colourful, eye pleasing, generous portions and on lovely platewares. Food wise was slightly up and down. I thought the sides that we chose were amazing. The chilli squid look lush, skillfully scored, properly deep fried and sprinkled with plenty of chilli powder. If not careful, you'll chocked on the chilli. With the dipping sauce I felt it was perfect. Our second side was the ebi katsu. The prawns, butterflies, battered was also done well. The batter was just the right thickness and prawns still moist. Both the fried dishes were not oily. The grilled tuna main was cooked to medium but the fish was under seasoned and texture was tough and compact. The quinoa was also bland. Generous portion size, though. Pad Thai lacked all the great flavours of sweet and sour. It has more beansprouts than noodles. Presentation was great but a huge let down. Chicken katsu curry was quite a plateful. The side of raw salad was colourful and fresh but the glossiness of the rice and a thick starchy looking sauce that quite pleasantly blankets the dish seemed a little sweet. I was not sure if I'd like the dish but I'd certainly would not order it again. Duck ramen was also meh, blandest of them all. Fried banana and caramel ice-cream was a good pairing. The caramel ice-cream was smooth lovely with a mouthful of banana. It was terribly busy and drinks were late. Food came sporadically so we could not eat together. Newly opened, teething problems but if it was a chain, they should have got their act together.
