The interior looked cheap, the staff took a while to take our order. The food took a long time to arrive. It wasn't very tasty, the portions weren't very big and it cost too much money. Overall not worth giving it another shot.More

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.More

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
