Wagamama's Japanese casual dining experience has definitely proven a success with restaurants dotted around the world including four restaurants in Ireland. They have their own cookbook and a selection of merchandise including t-shirts
Their restaurants are laid out in a fuss-free style with long wooden benches and a spotless open kitchen so customers can watch while their dishes are being freshly prepared and cooked. 

There is always a great buzz in their restaurants with customers clearly enjoying the food they've been served by their well trained staff. 

During my recent visit to Wagamama in Dundrum Shopping Centre, Co Dublin I was thrilled to hear that their miso ramen which was taken off the menu a while ago is making a comeback and will be on their new menu which starts on Monday March 25th 2013

Wagamama offer a very reasonable Monday to Friday (12-3) lunch deal for €9.95 which includes a drink. You can also order one of three starters for an additional €3. 

I ordered the spicy pork ramen because it's the closest substitute to the miso ramen on the current menu. It's was very tasty and I'd order it again.

Wagamama provides baby seats for the little ones and also have crayons and colouring sheets which is always a nice distraction for the kids! They usually have an area in the restaurant where you can park your buggy while you eat. They also provide free wi-fi and a take out service.  
Don't be put off by the queue in the Dublin city centre restaurant on South King St as it moves quickly and I can't remember waiting longer than 5-10 minutes. I've seen Brian O'Driscoll eating there a few times and believe it's very popular among the Irish rugby team players!

  1. I love Wagamama I usually go to the Blanchardstown branch where they do a nice set menu for €19 for three courses which they dont seem to have in Dundrum. My favourite dish there is the Chicken Ramen wonderful to eat on cold wet Irish day.

  2. Thanks for the comment Kat. Ramen seems to be one of the most popular dishes in Wagamama. Do you cook Japanese food at home at all?
