Reviews - What do customers think about The Wagamama Cookbook?
Translated for Americans! May 26, 2008
While Wagamama restaraunts are mostly known to those who have been to London, this cookbook is made for an American audience. They include cup and spoon measures, say shrimp instead of prawns, cillantro not corriander, snow peas not mange tout. However, the DVD that comes with it is of minimal use if you have any experience with stir-fry and they use British words. A great book for anyone wanting some slightly westernized Asian dishes, as well as those anglophiles longing for London. (Note: Not all the menu dishes are included. My favorite, chicken katsu curry is not in the book).
Whoa Wagamama! Dec 22, 2007
Wagamama is a Japanese-like restaurant I frequented while living in London. After going through withdrawals when I returned to California, I came across this cookbook. It is so good that you would not believe my review if I really, honestly wrote of how much I enjoy their food. The noodle dishes are best! For those of you who have not tried the food at Wagamama, think of simple and fresh ingredients tossed together in non-traditional ways. The recipes in this book are pretty easy and my limited skills in the kitchen are enough to make great meals.
Beautiful photography, wonderful food. Nov 4, 2007
Excellent recipes, very accessible - not full of esoteric ingredients that you'll only ever use once. I wish there was a Wagamama in Portland :(

I've never done Japanese cooking before, but with this book I can. I have made four recipies from this book, and they have all turned out spectacularly well -- the sort of thing I thought was only available in a Japanese restaurant. Some of them have needed special ingredients, which is easy for me because I live in NY where there are Japanese groceries, but some need nothing more exotic than soy sauce. Terrific book: I hope they write more.

If you like asia food, this is a pretty good book with very easy cooking meals. Very tasty food.
