Polished timber floors and walls, Wagaya brings a modern spin on Japanese dining – known for their self-ordering system and speedy waitering service, many people flock here for a good feed.

The food is not the best Japanese I’ve ever had (since my taste buds have leveled up from visiting Japan), but it does do a damn good job. The presentation is consistent each and every time, the food is nice and hot, the sushi rice is soft and the service is speedy and pleasant. The only downfall is that you never know what to order first and once you do, you become touch happy and order too much.

My favourites is the Japanese spin of pizza; loaded with toppings, stretchy cheese and a soft base and followed by Wasabi eel fried rice – that we order each time without fail. Strangely enough, there is nothing spectacular about the dishes; but they’re comforting, Wagaya serves up good comfort food. There is a well stocked sushi menu that should cater for everyone – raw or cooked. The only let down is the ramen served with a measly 2 thin slices of pork.

Black sesame ice cream here is unbeatable, and the range of alcoholic beverages are tantalizing, whether you’re into sake, cocktails or RTDs. Always book ahead and with late closing hours, after clubbing dinners are no longer at Superbowl, they’re here with a bit of class.
