Founded in 1992 in London’s Bloomsbury and inspired by fast-paced, Japanese ramen bars and a celebration of Asian food, wagamama has now grown to 145 company owned restaurants across the UK, and a further 50+ franchised restaurants operating predominantly in Europe, the Middle East and the USA. We set out to create a unique way of eating - bringing the fresh, nourishing, flavours of Asia to all. Our philosophy of ‘kaizen’, meaning ‘good change’, is right at our heart. It shapes every dish we create and pushes us to find better ways across everything we do. We are restless spirits, forever creating and seeking to making things better.

Despite our age and whilst operating in a highly competitive market, wagamama has successfully maintained its zeitgeist and remains top-ranked within the industry.
