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 was good and I don't have any specific complaints about the food or service. The reason for the 3 rating is that it just seemed overpriced for what you got. The restaurant is in the basement below a mall and has the feel of a food court. The food is equally nondescript -- our ramen was decent but... More

We always visit Wagamama when in London or Dublin, everybody enjoys the food and it's a relaxing, unpretentious place. Service is always quick and friendly in our experience, the only downside is the bill - yikes!

This is one of my favourite places to eat in dublin. Consistently yummy food, love the teriyaki soba or the Katsu curry. The staff are really friendly.

After hearing so much about this place I was kind of disappointed with the food when I went. I found that it was bland and didn't really have any flavour. I had the chilli beef ramen. However I'm willing to give it another chance and try another dish the next time I go because they do actually look good! The... More

This is one of these little places you always come back to. I've been here about 10 times a year and each time I order the same thing, Chicken Katsu Curry. This dish is gorgeous and so filling. The little side salad they give on the side of the plate garnished with pickles really complements the dish. If your paying... More

Most times when I visit Dublin I would pop into Wagamama for lunch. The food is amazing, there's something on the menu for even the most fussy of eaters. The service is fast, polite, efficient & occasionally you may have to queue but I've never done so for more than 5 mins. The turnaround is fast but not in a... More

I was really craving noodles on our trip and was recommended by a family member to try Wagamama. Loved the place! Great community atmosphere, food, and service. Would definitely go again!

I absolutely love Wagamamas and always try something different every time I'm in. I love my Asian food so I like to think I'm a good judge of food. As a student they do a great 2 for 1 meal deal and they also do take out which is great when I'm in a hurry.

Really impressed with service. Had a young fussy eater with us and staff were so accommodating and ensured she got a meal that she enjoyed. Plus gave her some gifts as we left. We really enjoyed food and outstanding service

Wagamama carries a wide menu choice which they deliver on consistently with high marks. You really can't go wrong whether you select curries, noodles or rice dishes. I have even tried the fresh juices here and they are quite good. Don't go here expecting much atmosphere or a quiet meal. The staff are friendly and efficient. A great place to... More
