You won't be runnin' from this ramen
The restaurant writes on its website: ''kaizen', meaning 'good change' is the philosophy that sits right at our heart. it shapes every dish we create, and pushes us to find better ways in all that we do. we're restless spirits. forever creating and making things better"- and as a somewhat regular customer, they definitely appear to be sticking to this philosophy.
Wagamama is a restaurant serving Japanese and Asian-inspired dishes, with a simple, playful and frequently updated menu boasting big flavours. This restaurant is an absolute go-to of mine, and I can't help but stop by whenever I'm planning a meal out.
For me, its main selling point is choice. There is a wide range of dishes (curry, ramen, teppanyaki and donburi, to name just a few), and more so than that, there is something to suit any budget. With a slightly larger budget, you can eat the many choices of sides, mains, desserts and fresh juice smoothies to your heart's content- but for those with smaller budgets? (aka, students like myself) - there's plenty for you, too! The meals are reasonably priced (at around the £10 mark), reasonably portioned, and you can get water and as much green tea as you'd like ABSOLUTELY FREE. Which for me, makes this place a winner.

Pros: Full of flavour, Healthy and Wholesome, Affordable Cons: A slight walk from the main town area
