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

The staff were very good and attentive to our needs and the food was very fast to arrive. Being situated outdoors on the footpath means you are beside all the footfall from the street and while it's no fault of the restaurants I did not feel it was that private and we had quite a few homeless people stopping to ask for money which is quite distressing to witness. Otherwise though it was a very enjoyable meal and the staff were great !

Staff were wonderful but the food wasn’t the best. Got the chicken katsu and the curry sauce tasted exactly like what you get in a Chinese takeaway 3in1 - nice enough but not what I was hoping for. The chicken was nice and crispy but it was bland. Overall, it wasn’t worth worth the €15. Grilled chicken ramen didn’t taste nice in my opinion- very strong taste of smoked bacon in the broth. The vegetable gyozas weren’t great either. Maybe others would enjoy this meal but unfortunately, we didn’t.

Wagamama - South King Street
Responded on 10 July 2021

Hi Maria. We're very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your food. The Katsu is a classic Japanese curry not dissimilar to it's Chinese counterparts. The chicken broth, while not containing any bacon does contain a shirodashi stock base which can lend a similar deep umami taste. We provide the option of a light broth for those who prefer a lighter flavor. We hope to see you again and would be happy to recommend dishes that might be more to your liking. Kind Regards, Team Wagamama Ireland

Food was grand. Abit disappointed beers were from bottles. Overall experience was nothing special. We would not return again because of the service. The waitress made a song and dance about looking for ID after already being served. The volume and how she went about asking was embarrassing and unnecessary. Then repeated told us we looked young.

Hi Rachel. Our sincere apologies if you felt embarrassed but it is a requirement to check identification of anyone who appears to be under the age of 25. We do however offer a selection of draught beers along with specially selected asian bottled beers, spirits and cocktails. We hope to see you again soon and would be happy to recommend something other than bottled beer for you. Kind Regards, Team Wagamama Ireland

Hi Anonymous. We're really glad you enjoyed your meal, but also very sorry to hear about your desert. Melted ice cream is no fun :( Due to the nature and location of our outdoor seating area service times may be slightly longer than usual, but your desert should still have been brought out to you in a timely manner. We hope you can join us soon for indoor dining for the full Wagamama fast paced service experience! Kind Regards, Team Wagamama Ireland

I genuinely hate writing reviews, but I needed to share my experience overall. Firstly, the service was subpar - the person who took our order didn’t even write it down and I had specifically requested to remove certain ingredients and of course, they had the whole ingredients on my meal! My skin gets very sensitive when having onions (normal and spring was in my bowl) and I had to pick it out one by one so I could eat my meal. Also, we ordered ice teas and they completely forgot about it and charged us afterwards for it. It’s not worth your money if the restaurant’s professionalism is poor in terms of service and delivery of food. I found the waitress was quite rude when we’re requesting something as well.

It poured rain on ourselves and our food the whole time. No adequate shelters for outdoor dining in place. One customer had a near miss when a flood broke through the canopy. A lot of the food on the menu was unavailable. Waiter was lovely. Not his fault but management should have prepared this better.

Hi Siobhan. We're very sorry to hear about your experience. We have two very large gazebos in place but given the nature of outdoor dining we unfortunately can't prepare for the unpredictability of Irish weather. While we're always improving things outside there's no perfect solution for the combination of heavy rain and wind we experienced on Thursday. We hope to see you again soon in better weather or perhaps when indoor dining returns. Kind Regards, Team Wagamama Ireland

A roof over the seating would have been nice as it started to get windy, but luckily it didn't rain. Heaters would also help the diners have a more comfortable experience. The food was really nice but can go cold quickly as it is outside, but that's not their fault.

Great food as always, couldn’t finish it! I’m gluten free and the manager came out to show me what I could eat on the menu (only one thing but I’ll take it) and she supervised the making of it to ensure it had as little contamination as possible. My friends all loved their meals and the lemonade and peach iced tea are so nice, highly recommend. Can’t go wrong with wagamama there is something for everyone. And the staff in this location were all very friendly.
