Description: 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

The food and service is average at best. We have been to wagamamas in England and Dublin. Not worth the $$. The food is okay but the prices should reflect the cafeteria style of eating and minimalist service offered.

The menu has plenty of choice, the meat and noodles are delicious and the food is reasonably priced. The food came quite quick, and the staff were very nice! Definitely worth a try, especially since its in a great central location.

Went in on Sunday afternoon after shopping. We were seated immediately and the staff could not have been nicer. I had a lovely chicken salad and husband Chicken ramen, which was tasty. Only down side- my daughter doesn't like chicken and asked for the childrens meal with beef instead of chicken- just a few strips, I was told that they... More

Tasty and quick food served in a very informal environment. Perfect spot before heading out on a night out for a quick bite to eat. A regular of mine

Had lunch here recently and really enjoyed the food. The menu has changed but they now do these box sets so you get to sample lots of things. Not the place for intimate dining but if you are after something tasty and you are in a hurry, wagamama's is for you.

Stopped in here for a dinner for two on a Monday evening. The place was buzzing which was great to see - ordered two mains with a side of duck dumplings which were very tasty. Our server was nice but not overly friendly as we had never been there before and they have a different way of doing things. The... More

One of the best places to meet friends after work. It has a very laid back atmosphere and can sometimes be loud so don't come here for a quiet place to dine. The staff are very quirky and always attentive, there is always enough staff working so you're not waiting for ages for your food. In my opinion you can't... More

No matter how good the food is, the service in this place is simply shocking especially over the busy lunch hour the place cannot cope with the amount of customers. The waiters are rude and inefficient, would not recommend.

Although Wagamama is a chain, it is still nice and for the most part one of the healthier dinner/lunch option in Dublin. Staff are usually quite friendly, and service even at peak times is quick and efficient. Recommended, but at peak times there may be a queue for seating.
