Lots of choice, good food, fairly priced and excellent service! We're never disappointed with Wagamama! Great if you want some chain food!

I used to love Wagamama's but now I find it disappointing, the menu has changed and it's lost its vibrancy and fun. I miss the chicken chilli menu. Service was OK but not brilliant. Raw juice still amazing.

hi Clare, thank you for your feedback, and yes we have tweaked the menu slightly, though the majority of the core dishes still remain. let me start by saying the chilli men was quite a popular dish in wagamama, and who knows maybe some day it may find its way back on the menu. but we feel we would be...

First of all I'd like to stress that my poor review is solely based on the substandard food that I have been served on several occasions and NOT a reflection on the very polite and helpful staff in this restaurant. Where to start... I used to love Wagamama's and I think it is fair to say that I used to... More

We were in Cork on a shopping trip and decided to go to Wagamama for lunch. We were greeted by very pleasant staff. From the menu we choose Chicken Raisukaree and Lamb Teriyaki. Both meals were cooked to perfection and very tasty. The Tiger beer added the finishing touch to our meal. Overall we enjoyed our meal but felt it... More

I like Japanese food and good restaurants with a quiet atmosphere. So this place would not have been in my list. Luckily I decide to try it. The menu selection is superb. The food was 10/10 and the price is fair. Recommended

Description
The wagamama story

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
