Pleasent service and nice ambiance, we appreciate the vegan menu, but all the dishes we’ve tried were tasteless (vegan gyozas, pad thai, fried rice and ramen). The food is fresh though and not greasy. Nice choice of drinks.

Perfect place for solo eaters, good service and food. Wagamama’s resturants are very popular and usually very busy during evenings.

This is a smaller Wagamama restaurant but with outstanding service. The location is great for the Usher Hall and city centre. Castle Terrace car park is a stones throw away. The food, as ever was superb. We will definitely be going back.More

Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
