Who doesn’t love a Wagamama? This pan-Asian and noodle restaurant, inspired by the flavours of Japan, is like no place else to eat. A particular highlight is the bench style seating, which makes for a relaxed dining experience, and is great for groups eating together! Not forgetting the food, which is always cooked and served up fresh. Noodles, ramens, curry dishes, salads, fresh juices, and a mini menu for the little ones, there’s plenty to get your teeth stuck into.

All served up fresh on the legendary kaiten-sushi conveyor belt. The perfect way to enjoy a fun and unique dining experience.
You can’t eat your way around the world without having a little Italian. And Ask Italian has something for everyone. Inspired by trips to the most famous country for food in the world, the menu has been created in collaboration with Theo Randall, a Michelin Star Chef who specialises in Italian cuisine. So, whether the stone baked pizza, fresh pasta, risotto, or antipasti sharing boards whet your appetite, you’ll be guaranteed a delicious meal.
For a little taste of Spain, you can’t get any more tempting than Churros. Freshly made and sold from a food truck in Chantry Square, which is open daily, it’s the place to go for your sweet fix. You can choose from four options; sugar or cinnamon sugar, with Belgian chocolate or salted caramel sauce. Made in front of you and served warm, it’s the perfect treat after a busy day shopping. Plus, you can also grab a cold drink or coffee to go along with it.
This retro American diner captures the spirit of the classic US original. Soak in the atmosphere at Ed’s Easy Diner as you feast on American cuisine staples such as burgers, hotdogs, fries and shakes. Made using only the finest ingredients, it will surely hit the spot.
For a quick Chinese noodle fix, Chopstix is a takeaway noodle bar offering a selection of hot Chinese-style dishes, all prepared using authentic noodles and fresh ingredients on the Dining Terrace.
Also perfect for some speedy grub is Chi, serving up Asian street food. Discover dishes with a modern twist on a base of Bao, Banh-Mi, noodles or rice with a wide range of snacks, sides and vegan options.
A fan of burgers? Well did you know there are mentions of burgers going back as far as 1758! Because it’s been around so long, the official origin of the burger is unknown – although you can certainly say it’s universally enjoyed now. And if you’d like nothing more to get your burger fix, there are multiple options at Chantry Place.
Try a classic beef burger made from 100% British grass-fed beef from Byron, cooked medium so it’s extra juicy. Or why not go for a handcrafted burger from Gourmet Burger Kitchen. We love the sound of the blue cheese burger, which you can get with either blue cheese sauce or a slice of gorgonzola.
There are plenty of food options at Chantry Place if you want to challenge yourself to eat your way around the world! And it doesn’t stop there. There’s also Auntie Anne’s, Starbucks, KFC, Subway, Pizza Hut, Spudulike and more. Not to mention Hotel Chocolat, Krispy Kreme or Millie’s Cookies – ideal for grabbing a treat to take home.
