wagamama is a Japanese-inspired restaurant chain with hundreds of outlets across the world. In Ireland, wagamama, which means 'naughty child,' opened on South King Street in Dublin in 1998 and since then we have brought the noodle to Dundrum and Blanchardstown in Dublin, as well as South Main Street in Cork City! Our ethos is to serve up fresh, fun Japanese inspired cooking in a simple, honest way, focussing on flavour and taste, using the freshest ingredients. If you haven't tried the classic wagamama katsu curry, you are seriously missing out!
