Good food, well priced. Layput of the tables make it hard to cater families and you're constantly feeling as though you're either in the way, or the kids are about to fall off the stools or chairs

I telephoned Vapiano's about a fortnight before the event and was able to book for a large group but only had a choice of 6.30pm or 8.30pm which was fine for us!
