Casual
‘kaizen’, meaning ‘good change’ is the philosophy that sits right at our heart. it shapes every dish we create, and pushes us to find better ways in all that we do. we’re restless spirits. forever creating and making things better



we’ve been practising kaizen since 1992, when we opened our first doors in london’s bloomsbury. inspired by fast-paced, japanese ramen bars and a celebration of asian food, wagamama burst into life. we set out to create a unique way of eating. bringing the fresh, nourishing, flavours of asia to all that was 25 years ago now. two whole decades to sharpen skills and refine recipes. to play with spices and discover tastes. we continue to get better with every day

Food amazing and so was service. I’m a light weight when it comes to alcohol had the gin cocktails but really there wasn’t a hint of gin! However the food was more than a ten out of ten as was the waitress! I think a jazz up of the cocktail menu to have even one or two classic cocktails would be a great addition. The ambience was really good and excellent Covid safety management overall in the restaurant !

Wagamama - South King Street
Responded on 1 September 2020

Thanks so much anonymous! We're running a reduced cocktail menu of favorites at present but we hope to expand our selection again soon. Just to reassure you the gin cocktail contains a full measure of Jinzu gin :) It's packed with flavors of yuzu, citrus and cherry-blossom and goes down surprisingly smoothly despite its strength. Definitely our favorite spirit in the restaurant. We hope to see you again soon and hopefully bump those stars up to reflect your great review! ;) Regards, Team Waga

Food was really nice but, service was a fail the first day we went you could tell the place was understaffed we waited about 20 minis unnoticed at the door before someone came greet us, then our food came and my drink never arrived I requested it again and finally came when my meal was finished (to be fair they didn’t charge for it) after that we waited about 40 mins or so before someone came to set us up with the bill I just felt completely forgotten about

Hi Niamh. Thank you for the review and the high marks for service. As many of our ingredients are sourced directly from asia, there is always the possibility that msg may be present due to the nature of how they are produced in this region.

Fantastic night at Wagamama in these strange times. Was so good to feel like a normal night out. Staff were wonderful putting everyone at ease, regularly checking up. The spacing out of tables was spot on...appropriately distanced but without it feeling weird or abnormal. And the service was just brilliant. Our server, from Meath, was outstanding.
