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.

Atmosphere was nice, food was slow and a little cold. Not a massive problem! Added to the bill was €5.50 for a bottle of "Tipperary Water". In this case, the bottle was uncapped and immediately tasted and smelt of standard tap water ( fluoride taste). I can imagine that this bottle was filled and capped after previous use.

Wagamama is always great anywhere you go, this one was excellent despite the dark locations. All the waiters are super nice and all of them speak different languages specially spanish!! The only improve would be to turn a bit up the lights.

Regular visitor here. The food and service and consistently excellent. The food is authentic and tasty. I have had almost every dish on the menu and recommend them all! But for first timers - try a teryaki or the reliable chicken katsu curry!

It's been a while since I ate there but the food is very good and represents good value for money. I don't particularly like the bench seating but that's probably just me. Handy location of you're shopping around Grafton Street and don't want to do fast food.

Wagamama is pretty good for a casual and tasty meal. I've been a couple of times and know that the way they operate is that they bring out each dish as they cook it. Most of the time this is fine and all of the dishes arrive within a few minutes. Unfortunately on my recent visit I received my food... More

Went here with young children, they loved the kids' menu which had smaller portions of main menu items along with a drink and ice cream/ice pop. There is usually a queue on the stairs in the evening which is difficult with children but it moves quick enough. No worries about making noise etc. Also good for meeting up with friends... More

Although not haute cuisine, Waga's is always good for a quick, tasty dinner. I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys fresh, full flavours and Asian cooking. Cheap, cheerful and charming!

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.
