I had quite a nice quiet 18th birthday but i don't really mind~
It's the final year of high school and plus i don't want to
be constantly reminded that i have already become an 'adult'. >_>
Still young inside and out :]
Anyways basically what i did for my birthday was go out to have
dinner at Wagaya, a Japanese restaurant in Haymarket, Sydney.
Of course you guys get to enjoy a few food pics that i took on the
day for this review :P
Review: Wagaya Haymarket
Pic originated from
since i wasn't able to take a photo of the sign!
Well...first of all...what is Wagaya~?
It's a Japanese restaurant that has touch screen menus where you
can click away as much as you desire. The menu includes many
small side dishes that you order like crazy to get full. Price ranges
from $4.90-$22.00 depending what you order. The atmosphere is
very busy and loud with dim lights and dark decorations to give off
that sophiscated aura. The restaurant has benches instead of
chairs where you can slide your bottom across :]
Atmosphere: 7/10 I would have actually been very relaxing if it
wasn't so busy all the time! Always busy, always booked...argh!
Design: 8/10 Pretty decorations. Very Japanese style which i like ;)
Food Quality: 7.5/10 Some of the food was nice and some were just
ok. Nothing amazing~
Food Range: 7.5/10 There actually wasn't as many choices as i
had expected. I thought there'd be alot more meat dishes and
rice/noodle dishes but sadly there were only a few. Dessert was
also limited. :(
Service: 8.5/10 Friendly waiters and also food came out really fast.
We were still ordering when our first few dishes came! One
complaint was i booked a reservation and it wasn't even on the list!
Luckily the waitress still led us to an empty table...which was
Price: 7/10 Price was ok, not cheap nor too expensive but serving
amounts were quite small so you had to order quite a few dishes
to get full.
Overall: 7.5/10 I'd go again if there are available spaces which
there usually isn't~ Wayy too busy...I don't understand why it's THAT
popular~ Food was good but nothing to die for~

Started off with the February Cocktail though i'm pretty sure
it was a mocktail. I liked how the drink looked so i ordered it
instead of my June one.
Drink tasted ok, it wasn't what i expected. I thought there would
be alot more strawberry goodness at the bottom but as you can see
it was basically white with just a teeny bit at the bottom.
King fish and Tuna Sashimi~
King fish tasted good but tuna was just so so. They cut it abit too thick~
Lotus Chips~ Yum! Crunchy like potato chips but instead it's with lotus.
Baby Abalone Sashimi~
Wagaya Steak~ Tender and juicy...but why didn't they give us more?! :P
Ramen (I forgot which one it was!) Rather oily and not enough
ingredients~ I think there was one piece of meat and half an egg.
Eel and cheese spring roll~ Rather strange combination~ Didn't taste
Spider Roll~ Yummy!! :P
Dragon Roll~ Also nice but not as good as the Spider Roll
Dessert Combo 1. (I think it was no. 1, well there was only two choices)
-Green Tea mousse
-Black sesame ice cream
-Ichigo Daifuku (But instead the strawberry was on top and inside
was just red bean)
Black sesame ice cream was the best part~? ^~^ hahah the other two
were not too bad~
Of course you got to have a cake! Well two in my case.
85 degrees cakes! Yayy!
Strawberry Bubble~ Omg! This was amazing @_@ It's like
strawberry puree on the outside and inside is strawberry mousse on
top of a cake....*drool
Hokkaido Strawberry~ Abit dry but i don't mind, i mean they do call
it the japanese diet cake :]]
Anyways that's it from me~
