Description: The wagamama story our story began in 1992, when we opened our first restaurant in bloomsbury, london. We wanted wagamama to offer the kind of fresh, fast food and relaxed atmosphere you get in japanese noodle bars. We've gradually grown into a much-loved family of restaurants that spans 17 countries our dublin's city centre restaurant opened it's doors in 1998, being the first wagamama franchise in the world. After several years we decided to spread our wings down south to cork city in 2005 and further again in 2010 to up north to belfast and back down to dublin's blanchardstown. Finally in july 2011 our fifth wagamama opened in dundrum shopping centre

We placed our order over the phone and were told that the waiting time would be up to 45 minutes, which we didn't mind. Our food was delivered twenty minutes later. We live quite close to Waga but, unless the food was a reheat, there's no way it could be that quick. My food tasted slushy. I actually had to... More

The Wasabi cake has been "sectioned" into five squares which means you get less although they are presented quite nicely to trick your eye. Also, there used to be two scoops of ice-cream (now down to one). I wouldn't mind if the price had decreased too but it hasn't, it's a bit of a rip-off.

I'm not always excited by going into this type of chain so I never went to any Wagamama before. I wish I had before coz the athmosphere and the waiters are very friendly, the food appears as really cooked and fresh, there is the Crownee Plaza next to it to go for a drink after. Very smart choice!

Three adults and two children, all ordered main courses, however, four meals were served and almost finished before I received mine. But to be fair the manageress apologized profusely and it was not charged on the bill. The setting was not the most comfortable, overly bright and terrible seating. Having to go down two flights of stairs for the bathroom... More

I really enjoy eating in Wagamama in England. I have been to several of the restaurants over many years and never had a bad meal. Unfortunately this restaurant was a real disappointment. My main meal was overly seasoned - the flavours of the sauce totally overpowering the flavours of the fish and vegetables. The kitchen closed at 21:30, which I... More

We visited on a very busy Saturday evening - service was quick and faultless. Recommend the duck gyoza and wagamama ramen!

First of all, and importantly, parking is easy, free, and practically right outside the door. Recommend the chicken ramen dishes. Middle of the road price-wise. As with all restaurants you'll feel the pain in your pocket if you go for desserts. Great, friendly service in this restaurant.

They mucked up our order and the food wasn't very nice. Think we caught them on a particularly bad day. It wasn't cheap for what it was. Which I complained when I was there, but in fairness Manageress was very nice. Ate in the chain in London a few years back and was much better.
