Always great

Hadn't been here for ages and went back on Friday evening. We did have to queue for a little while but it was worth the wait. As usual the food was tasty and of a very high quality. The staff (for the most part) were very friendly and helpful and we didn't have to wait long for anything. I'll... read more

Tasty food, solid veggie choices, nice atmosphere, good service. Queues can sometimes be a bit long and in my opinion big price tags are not justified.

Having visited many Wagamamas, the South King Street in Dublin is as good as any other we've visited. Tasty food and wine, good service and convenient locations. Waga is always a safe choice, always consistent - and we'll always keep going back!

What is going on with Wagamama? Are all waiting staff on commission? It would appear so as they are so pushy with drinks and sides and our waitress was also really wacky! I don't appreciate having food and drink pushed on me when I decide to eat out. We were happy with our dishes, the food tasted good and fresh... More

After being a fan of Wagamama for many years, I've finally realised that it's not a healthy alternative and the staff are not well trained. I was almost harassed by the pushy waitress to get a large juice instead of the regular size which I was trying to order. "It's only €1 more", she kept repeating, and "but it's really... More

I'm writing this review sitting waiting on our meals. We spent the best part of 10 minutes being told by staff members that the dish my wife ordered could not be made gluten free... this is strange as this dish is the only dish my wife orders on a regular basis which CAN be made gluten free. After getting fed... More

We went to eat here twice. The first time it was very busy and we had to wait a very long time in line and when we asked how long we had to wait in line they kept telling us it would be five or ten more minutes and we ended up waiting about 45 minutes. After that the service... More

We have visited Wagamama's all over the UK and Dublin did not let the side down. Lovely food, nice staff and clean and modern surroundings. Wagas are not comfy and luxurious so dont expect this, but we always enjoy our food!
