The long tables, big bowls of slurpy noodles, upbeat East Asian tempo and cool branding have been a prominent part of High Street eating in Britain for nearly 20 years. It had almost become an indictment that a city of Edinburgh's dining status was without its Wagamama fix, a gap now filled in a convenient former bank on Lothian Road. The chain's many followers dig the slick efficiency of operation, the positive attitude to kids, vegetarians, lone diners and hungry appetites. With huge servings of curries with rice, soupy noodles or griddle-flashed teppan, and no shortage of fresh, lively ingredients, there's little denying its zestful appeal. Just a pity that flavours can be absent in key areas making some dishes rather one-dimensional.
wagamama is a celebration of asian food, inspired by japanese ramen bars and is a truly unique way to eat. A menu created to soothe, nourish and sustain, whether you choose a little ginger to warm you up, chillies that kick or noodles to nourish the body and soul. Pick from all kinds of rice and noodle dishes, alongside fresh salads and shareable sides – as well as feel good juices and expertly crafted asian beers.
wagamama have an extensive vegetarian, vegan and non-gluten menu offering as well as a kids menu for little noodlers.
