Food as always very good and consistient, service was quick, the Blanchardstown branch lacks soul, sterile with little character. When we were there the ground flooe foyer was icy cold and the resturant was also cold with icy cold air comming through each time the door was opened.. a number of diners had there coats on.

Food arrived 30 minutes after ordering and was luke warm. Sent it back and within 5 minutes a "new fresh" dish was presented in front of me!! I love wagamamma and unfortunately it disappointed me this time

The food is still delicious but our visited was tainted by rushed service.

The staff at wagamama are welcoming and keen to please. Unfortunately, on the evening we visited this meant that a waiter stood right next to our table whipping plates and glasses from in front us as soon as we had - nearly - finished. It as a very uncomfortable experience and ruined the experience for us. We felt like we were being rushed out and at one point the waiter was reaching for my bowl as I put food from it in to my mouth. I'm all for keeping on top of things but this was ott.

Quite a lot of the menu was unavailable too and something has changed in the atmosphere of the place. Maybe it's covid. Maybe it's the stick piled at the far end of the restaurant giving the place a school canteen feel.

I hope they get in top of things again. It's a terrible time for the hospitality sector and I'm going to assume that is what's has changed here.

Food so tasty as always. Staff very attentive & helpful. Only negative is that cool breeze blows in when the door opens every time - just an unfortunate architectural flaw.

We usually love Wagamama but it wasn’t great last night. The place seemed Covid compliant but it was very cold (everyone wearing coats), several things not on the menu (run out) and they lost/forgot our main courses. They did compensate by not charging for a drink and one main but it didn’t feel like the normal standards at all.

Main courses brought out at different times for group of 4 people with some of our group receiving their food over 10 minutes later than others. No social distancing as we were made to share our table with other diners with less than 1 meter distancing and no screen. Would not return or recommend

Such a lovely place super warm with a lovely atmosphere. the staff are lovely and super attentive checking in on you to make sure everything is okay.
The food was amazing super hot. I love that you can see the chefs as they are cooking you know what's going on with your food. It does get a bit noisy but that's fine with everyone chatting its barely noticeable :)
Would defo go again, also good for a bigger group too they have benches so you have can fit more people very handy.
make sure you have your Covid cert of course and book before because it is quite busy. 10/10

The room needs to be cleaned. Staff were eating at a table covered in clutter. Had to request to move away from the end table which was in carnage. Very unprofessional look. Food was great though. Staff need a lesson in how to listen to a customer

Menu has a lot of unavailable items - hardly any of the small plates /appetisers. Chicken in the the katsu looked and tasted like it was a reheat.

Am a regular user of this location and other Wagamama’s in Dublin and the quality has nose dived since they reopened.

Personally think food is overpriced for what you get. Loads of veg, rice etc but very little meat when you order.
4 of us at table and we all got our meals out at different times this I thought was very poor as we ordered all together

It was very disappointing as all the food we had planned to get had been crossed out from the menu and it’s probably some of their best sellers too wasnt impressed at all

My wife and I ondered a Ramen and a Yaki Soba. Was not bad but also nothing special that I would return and have it again. In my opinion the broth of the Ramen could be better. The service was good.

Compared to other Wagamama’s really poor. Chicken in the Katsu curry was over cooked. Beef in ramen was chewy and pieces instead shredded. A number of popular starters not available. Won’t be returning to this venue due to the poor food. Staff were attentive and welcoming, pity about the food.

Very enjoyable, the only negative points were it felt rushed, my wife got her starter first, it was eaten before I got mine, and while I was having my starter she was given her main course. And before I finished my starter I got my mains too. My wife asked for salt and was given Chinese 5 spice instead, not really good when you cover your food with spices instead of salt. Food was lovely tho, as always, and staff were very friendly.

Responded on 21 December 2020

Hi Chris, Thanks for the review, we are really sorry about the salt, our fault. We don't do starters and mains, we have sides and then everything comes out as soon as its prepared. This should have been explained to you while ordering though so our apologies for the confusion. We are glad you enjoyed the food and hospitality and we hope to see you back in the future for an even better experience.
