Japanese
‘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

The food is not as good as it used to be, I'm assuming there was msg in the food as I had a reaction after that I would have with msg. Why does this have to be in the food? It is not what I would have previously associated with wagamamas

Wagamama - South King Street
Responded 7 days ago

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. Our food development team are working on an msg guide to be included in our dietary section in the future. Kind Regards, Team Wagamama Ireland.

Responded on 25 July 2020

Hi Niall. We're very sorry you left hungry. All our dishes are portioned to brand standards ensuring all our customers leave satisfied. That said some dishes are lighter than others so if you're ever unhappy with a portion size please let us know and we're always more than happy to change it for you. We hope you can give us another chance soon, and we'd be happy to recommend some dishes that might be more to your liking. Kind Regards, Team Wagamama Ireland

The chicken was uncooked and raw in the centre. Got a replacement but didn’t feel comfortable eating it.

Hi Niamh. We were very concerned to hear about this. I would like to reiterate our sincere apologies. The issue was brought to our attention on the night in question. Please know that we're investigating what went wrong with the order as it's very unusual for this to happen and absolutely never acceptable. I trust that management on the night resolved the situation to your satisfaction but if you would like to discuss the matter further please don't hesitate to email us at dublin@wagamama.ie

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. Could not recommend more highly! Great to be back at Wagamama and can’t wait to come back again for more! Keep up the fantastic work!

My friend and I waited over twenty minutes and then had to ask for someone to take our order while staff walked around aimlessly avoiding eye contact. Although our food was served immediately, other food waited on the pass for a substantial amount of time, it definitely was not still hot.

Hi Megan. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We're very sorry to hear that your recent visit with us wasn't up to standard. Our team are working incredibly hard adjusting to the new normal at present, but a delay of the length you experienced is never acceptable. We will address this with our team and we hope to see you again soon! Regards, Team Wagamama Ireland.
