Apparently Wagamama is a chain restaurant similar to PF Changs but specializing in Japanese-style food. I got this book at a yard sale and have never been to the aforementioned establishment, but I enjoy some tasty cultural appropriation to a moderate extent (I also have like 3 other authentic Japanese cookbooks). I mean, this book is great for what it is. I don't bother buying dumpling sauce because I can just make it myself using the recipe in this book. The recipes are tasty, if not entirely ...more

Every once in a while I go through phases of using specific cookbooks. I rediscovered this one in my cupboard, and was really glad I did. Although some of the ingredients are more eclectic, the recipes turn out generally really well, and I can imagine recreating dishes at "Noodle Box". Some of the recipes taste quite salty, so I adjust the seasoning.

I've now perused The Wagamama Cookbook from cover to cover, digesting its advice and guidance, and selecting the first several items that I'll conquer in the coming week to 10 days. The gist of the book is introducing interested readers and cooks who may or may not be familiar with the restaurants of the same name to what is essentially "the way of the noodle" (think the Tao of noodles, you Tao of Pooh fans out there). What I most appreciate, however, is the non-partronizing, non-preachy and all ...more

I miss all the Wagamama outlets in London, but this cookbook is the next best thing. Recipes are straightforward (and so far have been successful for me), although some that require lots of sauces can be time-consuming. Fun to see all the pictures of familiar favorites (chicken chili men, katsu, amai udon) and to dream about making them.

I love this cookbook. I cook from it all the time. I think what I like the most about it is that there are always different and exciting things to try on the next page over, and even though some of the recipes are tough, it's fun having a go. It also has a range of recipes; ramen, noodles, rice, sides, fish, salads, juices... it really shows the variety that Japanese cuisine has to offer.

The first cookbook from one of my favorite (albeit cheesy) restaurants in the UK. I love the concept of Wagamama as much as I love the food. I was thrilled to pick this up a few years ago, but regrettably, I don't cook from it often. When I do, however, the dishes are almost as good as they are in the restaurants.

Recommends it for: anyone who likes asian noodles
We found this restaurant when were in London a few years ago. We loved the atmosphere of family dining and the yummy noodles. A few weeks ago my husband was in Boston and found that they had opened one in the U.S. He bought me the cookbook. I have made a couple of the dishes and they are delicious!

I appreciate the accessible recipes for ramen~something that seems more complicated the more I search for it!

There's a few recipes in here that you'll probably never every try - they're not all easy - but the instructions are easy to follow and the flavours are delicious. A must for all oriental food lovers
