Wagamama: Add Some Zing To Your Shopping Trip


If you’re looking for a delicious, Asian-inspired restaurant to visit where you can catch up with old friends over a steaming bowl of ramen or have a casual date while sharing a delicious katsu curry, Wagamamas is the perfect place!

This chain of restaurants offer a variety of tasty food dishes that will appeal to meat lovers, seafood fans, vegans and gluten-free diners alike.

Whether you’re in the mood for some yummy food such as steaming hot ramen noodles or crispy tempura vegetables, Wagamama’s has something for everyone to love.

How Wagamama Works


If you’re eating in, you may need to be prepared to sit at a table with strangers during busy times.

They’re not regular tables so you won’t be making awkward conversation or sharing your food with new people – unless you really want to!


Each dish is a made-fresh-to-order-service so they generally bring out everything as it comes, regardless of what you and your friends have ordered. Everything is always steaming hot, delicious and leaves you wanting more!

The service is friendly, welcoming and fast-paced but you’re never in a rush to leave.

Stay as long as you need to satisfy your Asian food craving!

Wagamama’s Ramen: What is it?


Ramen is a delicious Japanese noodle dish that is typically made with chicken, pork broth or vegetable broth that has been simmering away for hours – sometimes even overnight.

Ramen can be enjoyed for lunch or an evening meal and also features thin noodles and fresh, crunchy vegetables and is a great choice if you’re watching the pounds. It is often served with a soft boiled egg, green onions and your choice of topping, usually beef, chicken, pork, tofu or fish.


Wagamama’s Ramen dishes come in a variety of flavours and styles, so there is something for everyone!

You can choose between Teriyaki ‘chicken’ (vegan), miso glazed cod, spicy short ‘rib’ (vegan), chilli steak or chicken, tantanmen beef brisket, shirodashi (slow-cooked pork belly) and yummy coated silken tofu ramen.


Be warned though, the portions served at Wagamama restaurants are LARGE, so make sure you’re both hungry and thirsty for a delicious bowl of Wagamama ramen!

A Cool, Modern Environment


Wagamama’s humungous portions of food make it a great value place for eating in and the modern, Asian-inspired décor is a cool place to bring your friends whether it’s for lunch or an evening of slurping noodles together!


The high quality food is also a wonderful affordable option if you would like to take your date somewhere new and if you can’t finish your meal, they offer a takeaway service too!
