They are every where...just like macdonalds.
Cant remember for the life of me what she said the name was.
do you know what i mean?

Not restraunt, like a quick cafe type thing...noodle and rice dishes etc.
like a big dining hall

Poor Wagamama, think they might be a bit insulted at being likened to McD's but they are yum, yum, yum!

Wagamamas is not like McDonalds. It is sit down with waited tables.

What they do do that is unusual is to seat you in refectory style tables (in some restaurants), so you can be seated right next to other customers.

Other than that, they have a full menu and alcohol service. They serve you with china bowls. Nothing like Mickey Ds.

It is great and my kids love it.

there's one in leeds and one, maybe more, in manchester.

ruddynorah Sun 16-Aug-09 20:40:25

and it is not at all like McDs! the menu is full of unusual things, not like chinese take away stuff or whatever. look them up on line before you go.

I agree with the suggestion about checking out the menu before you go. I have been many times, but am always a bit intimidated about what to order. It is good to have in mind what you want beforehand, to save you from always getting the boring, safe option.
