This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

Anyone tried it out?

That krispy duck image has me half tempted but wondering what the procedure is?
do you tell the waiter the "code" when your ordering, is it just like saying "hey water dude, im with the English Forum, can we get the EF special discount"
Do they know about it cause I hate when they are all like uhh I dunno I'll have to check with the manager ect and it takes ages and makes a minor scene.
all sounds quite james bondesque anyway.

also when it says "meal" does it mean just mains, or does meal include started, drink, dessert ect?

is it for sit in food or for take away.

Is the Wagamamas in Zurich any good? ive had some abroad before so I'm just assuming its a cookie cutter experience (i know there is a thread on this already but it's very old so maybe some more recent experiences might be more interesting)

Thanks for sharing

I was thinking about trying out the Wagamama offer as well, with a friend. Will post the experience if we decide to go this week.

Answers, in order.

* Not this one, but similar ones.
* Just mention it to the waiter/ress when you order. She'll tell you to give her the voucher when you pay.
* See above.
* It's totally not a JB scene. James Bond scenes involve cool Union Flag parachute drops and sexy women on horses. Mentioning you have a voucher in Wagamama doesn't compare.
* Main (based on previous deal experience)
* Sit in (ditto)
* Yes

Further to last answer - I work near there and go fairly often. I love the coconut chicken noodles thingy. It's really substantial and I've never finished it. The staff are friendly and tolerate me being weird. On Sunday I discovered they have an amazing frozen yoghurt thing which is potentially life-changing. My friends swear by the ginger cheesecake. You get free green tea. They have internet if you ask for the password.

Get yourself along there. You can't go wrong.

Re: This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

cool, thanks for the feed back,
you mention that you hand in the voucher when paying, but here there it just says to use the code, so that was the tricky bit i was wondering about.
anyway, ill try and check it out with your awesome dessert recommendation.

Re: This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

hehe I was wondering the same things... the offer is not very clear. I decided that if the waiters cause trouble, I will just show them the screenshot. However, I still have to find the time to go down there.

I tried it out last year - typical Wagamama atmosphere. Good food, great for quick/casual dining with friends (especially with deals like these), but nothing special.

Re: This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

Hey,

I used the deal last night and only had to mention 'english forum' to get it (although I also had a screen shot print out with me just in case) It was an absolute treat to have dinner actually out!! usually we just cant afford it. so it was great in that sense but unfortunately the food was pretty disappointing which is strange because other wagamama's ive been to were good...maybe i just got a dud night...

Re: This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

Tried it last weekend. No worries at all, just mention "englishforum" when ordering, and when asking for the bill (in case it's with a different waiter).

It's not actually "2 for 1", but - even better - "buy one get one free" with the cheaper of two mains free. So you don't have to order two of the same to get the discount.

I usually like Wagamama - fast, reliable, pretty varied menu - but I have to say that the last couple of times in Zurich it felt as if they were getting a little lazy....orders not right, food quality not great - hope its just a blip

Re: This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

We absolutely love wagamama and just had to mention the englishforum for us to get the discount which was great, but I agree here with the other posters that the taste of the main courses seem to vary everytime we are there, prices not too high but not cheap either. Very child friendly, they have colour pencils and Menu card for children which they can colour.

If your child has been to visit 3 times, the fourth time they get a t-shirt (they take a picture and attach it to the kids menu card and you have to bring all the three :-) )

Re: This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

Just checked out the Wagamama website. Seems to have been revamped - and they've 'revised' the price list as well it seems. Bloody hell, 26.80 for a Katsu Curry! Oh well it is Zurich I suppose.

Only ever been to the Zurich Wagamama, it's OK (despite my comment about price above) and not rip-off, but the food is so-so (not 'real' Japanese, more an interpretation) - still cannot believe that there is no pork on the menu!

Re: This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

Also - if you sign up on Wagamam's website they send you a coupon once a month for a free app, buy one get one free, etc. I have never receiveed spam from them. The offer is generally related to a holiday (Mother's Day, Easter, etc) or a new menu item to try.

I love wagamamas but have never been to the one in Zurich yet...
anyway, do you know if you still get vouchers if you register on-line??
what do you mean a coupon for a free app?? do you need to install an app??
I'll do anything for a discount on here
thanks so much!!

Re: This new Wagamama voucher offer for EF members

Free app = free appetizer. I would get specials via email from thm quite a bit when I was on their mailing list. I have since Unsubscribed because I get annoyed with junk mail easily.
