There's at least one vegan option in every category (pad thai, cha han, sides... etc) which is great. LOVED the wok fried greens! Some original cocktails too.

Tofu Ramen Udon

I’ve had this twice now! Still yummy, but I’m a bit sad there isn’t a fully separate vegan menu anymore

Pros: Loads of vegan options , Lovely staff

Cons: No more vegan menu

Yummy chain

Have recently tried out the newer dishes which was a bit sad about as they were doubled up into new ramens as well. I mixed and matched over two occasions with the vegan ribs to start and teriyaki ‘chicken’ ramen, then on next visit the teriyaki ‘chicken’ steamed buns followed by the vegan rib ramen.

Both are great items as sides but I would recommend the vegan rib ramen over the ‘chicken’ one as the texture and taste of the ‘chicken’ gets lost in the ramen.

Always a fan of the no duck donburi and enjoy the fresh juices too (power)

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Fresh feeling food , Good flavours

Vegan Tempura "f-ish" & bang bang yaki mo

I wanted to try the new f-ish dish, although my first thought was that there was an add combination of the f-ish with spicy sweet potatoes, and I'm not that into spicy food, but I thought I would give it a try. I took a friend who likes spicy food so we'd give it a fair hearing!
The f-ish had a good texture and taste and went well with the curry and tartare sauces. I really enjoyed the minty edamame - a creative fusion twist on traditional mushy peas. The spicy sweet potatoes were quite nice, but they didn't really seem to fit well with the overall dish. We both felt it would have been better to have sweet potato chips rather than pieces, and to put the spicy sauce on the side so it's optional. I think that would broaden the appeal of the dish.
The service was great, within limits. They were out of their free green tea but gave me a different green tea free of charge. However, I was disappointed that they had run out of plant milks, and as part of a chain (rather than a small independent business) they seemed unable to go the extra mile and pop to a shop to get some.

Pros: Tasty vegan f-ish and minty edemame peas

Cons: Serves meat and animal products, Big corporation - staff couldn't pop to the shop

More vegan options

Great new vegan menu, we will be going back to try some other dishes! Favourite this time was the sticky miso corn.
I liked the addition of screens between visitors too thanks to covid, better than sharing one big table.

New vegan choices!

It was a lovely surprise to see new vegan choices, I didn’t realise until that day that the menu changes on every single restaurant, and this one offers a wide range.
We loved the vg mushroom hirata bun, the new pulled vegan 'chicken' ramen (vg) and the new spicy short 'rib' ramen!! They were incredible tasty, loved them!!! Will definitely repeat both of them.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, specially the new ones! , Friendly staff , Very welcoming

Cons: Pricey

Good food but nothing special

I used to love coming here before becoming vegan. I was looking forward to trying the Avant Gard’n but they were out of the vegan egg. Ordered it with extra veggies instead but it was nothing special: just a bowl of veggies and seitan. They were also out of some of the dessert. Disappointing...

Pros: Lots of options on the menu

Cons: Some of the options not available

Don't bother

I just don't understand the Wagamama business model. High prices but everyone crammed in and they can't bring your food at the same time?
Couple of vegan dishes but the couple of times I've been food has been bland and taken way too long to arrive even when the place isn't busy.

Cons: Long waits. Poor service. Bland food.

The service was lacking...

Me and my partner ordered a Tofu dish, I can't remember the exact name but it took almost an hour to come! when they arrived , he got tofu and I got chicken! I almost didn't notice as I was very tired. The waitress came and changed it to tofu and did give us free sorbet and a beer so I understand it must have just been a bad day..but it wasn't even busy so I'm not sure what happened there? However ..the food was nice and there were plenty of vegan options as well as yummy chilli salted edamame beans! :)

Pros: Vegan options , Gluten free options , Good place for casual lunch

Cons: Waiting time can be long, Often get order wrong , Staff seem like they don't want to be there

New vegan stuff!

Had the “vegatsu” seitan katsu which was super yummy. Super busy but the staff were on top of it and super friendly. Decent choices for veggie and vegan.
