This place is amazing and the concept is unique. The food is Italian and the taste is great. There's a good selection of Pastas, Pizzas and Salads. Good selection of drinks from the bar. It's all self-service but clearing and the food is cooked in front of you in minutes. Is a good place to come with friends if you... More

This restaurant has the same system as all the other Vapianos. You enter and are given a "credit card", you order your food and drink - and you pick up your food when you are told it is ready. However, this time we were sooo disapointed!! We ordered 2 different pizzas - Toscana (picy Italian sausage, pesto marinated olives, tomatoes,... More

London can be a tricky place when it comes to food. It's or expensive as hell for good and decent food or it's uneatable! Vapiano's is a perfect place when you're shoppikg in Orford Street and you want something good, fresh and not be bankrupt after it. They prepare everything in front of you and in addition to their large... More

I'm a frequent diner at the Wardour street branch and would recommend people to go there! But don't come here Senior staff were rude there also wasn't enough chefs on for the demand, layout is appalling and the food is of a lesser quality than expected of the brand...had a bolognese that was incredibly bland. Avoid. Go to wardour street.

Great Portland Street is fantastic place for foodies. Vapiano comes up with an interesting concept; decoration is great, lay out works well and you could have Italian food on a budget. It was ok while we were there but I must warn, when it gets busy I can see that it might be little chaotic to get food on time... More

Came here with a high degree of expectation. ordered pizza which was not properly cooked. The place is crowded which is a good sign but in this instance the restaurant has failed. Avoid - Franco Manco is better.
