Although hostess & waitress were great, we didn’t appreciate that the pad Thai meal was prepared & brought out quickly. Then my friend had to wait more than 15 mins for my salmon teriyaki to be brought out. And so, her meal was no longer hot but cold. It’s a problem when there’s a disconnect with service coordination in the kitchen, especially since restaurant was not full.

Booked this place for a team lunch. Great ambience and food. Will definitely recommend the 'bun' option on the menu.

Had the avant garden - it was a bit bland. Some sauce on the side would have helped.

We were a party of six, with early dinner reservations pre-show. Had an amazing meal; three of us tried the seasonal vegan sticky ribs which were fantastic, and all the appetizers and drinks were great! Definitely coming back and if there is delivery in the area where my office is, I will be a more regular repeat customer.
The layout of the restaurant was open and decorated nicely, simple and contemporary. Everything was clean, and the staff was great. We had a great experience.

They had no clue of our Opentable reservation at the front desk.
They sat 3 of us in an 6 sitting table in the middle of nobody while nice 4 table spaces were available for non reserving guests.
Then they came again to ask our name on the reservation

Absolutely delicious food. Ramen was great, gyoza delicious too. Service was charming and prompt. Only criticism is that it was uncomfortably noisy with the kind of music I personally cannot understand anyone wanting to hear when they are eating. But I'm an old curmudgeon. I recommend the food very highly, it was delish and a good value for the money. Fresh, bright flavor and plentiful portions.

I've been to Wagamamas in London and Dublin; the Murray Hill branch is the nicest. It was refreshing to be in a space with a high ceiling that decreases the noise level considerably. Our waiter was genuinely warm and professionally reliable. There could have been more vegetables in the bowls--the servings were a little sparse, and I'm not a huge eater--but all in all Wagamama is good value for money, especially in midtown Manhattan. Very pleasant and a new go-to staple in midtown.

The food is tiny portions and super oily. I got the crispy cauliflower - it was doused and floating in oil. My friend got the gyoza dumplings. Embarrassingly small and tough. The servers aren’t really smiley or nice. I really wanted to like this place bc outdoor Asian eateries are rare in nyc but I came away disappointingly annoyed.
