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.

So Clean So Fresh

Had a fantastic lunch here recently with a mate. Really good value lunch options available. Lovely to see the big open kitchen working to produce each dish. The place is very clinical and clean in its appearance. We had some starter dishes, which were beautiful and then big bowls of ramen noodles... read more

I have eaten in Wagamama many times over the years in both Cork and Dublin, and it is usually very good. However the food was very disappointing on my most recent visit to the Dublin branch. I ordered noodles with tofu and vegetables in broth and my boyfriend ordered pan fried noodles with vegetables. I have had both these dishes... More

The place is very clinical and clean in its appearance. We had some starter dishes, which were beautiful and then big bowls of ramen noodles, everything was so fresh and bursting with flavour.

Having eaten in a load of Japanese restaurants in the U.K. last month I was craving more. I found myself in Dublin and decided on Wagamamas. After a small wait we were seated. Chose miso soup, 2 types of Gyoza, the mushroom onigiri and 2 juices. Our food was very good and server, Jules, very helpful and friendly. Probably a... More

Being descendant of japanese I must say I know my jap food and wagamama is a good choice for those in a tight budget. The food is good, not amazing, but for the price you pay I wouldn't expect more. The only downside is that you sit in a bench beside strangers...not comfortable.

We just had a lovely meal in Wagamama & the food was excellent, freshly prepared & served by extremely nice staff. The menu is varied with good options. There are just two small issues though. We found it very strange that the food was served in such random order. The starters we ordered were served at the end of the... More

I come to wagamama as often as I can! I love this restaurant, especially the katsu curry. The staff are always lovely and I love the fact you can watch your food being cooked. Always fresh, always delicious!

Myself & my wife ate here recently and both really enjoyed our meals. I haven't been to Wagamama in ages and had forgotten how good and simple the food was. We had no reservation but luckily was seated immediately. Our waitress was very profession and helpful with the menu. There are lots of choices so we needed a steer in... More

Unfortunately I am one of those people who eat the chicken katsu curry nearly every time I come here. I always intend to try something different but I am always drawn back to this dish. I have eaten lots of things on the menu but I have been disappointed on a few occasions, so I guess I play safe. Wagamama... More

My friends like going here. I'm easy going so gave it a shot. The dining area is fairly loud when crowded but could still hear my friends. Food was decent, nothing extraordinary. The beverages were nice.

Visited here last Friday night, the food was delicious and served piping hot. The service was fast and the staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't have to wait long for a table and were in and out very quickly- which is exactly what we were looking for. We also had a very reasonably priced bottle of wine.
