To me Wagamama isn't like other 'fast food' chains in that the food always appears to be cooked fresh - which is great, and this restaurant in Edinburgh is no exception.

To me the downside is the seating arrangement which in turn leads to quite a noisy restaurant but this time it was ok.

The other minor downside is that as each item is freshly cooked it tends to arrive as ready - I assume there are multiple chefs specialising in different dishes which might explain why my starter arrived at the same time as the main but this didnt matter this time

this restaurant serves the noodles beyond awesome. The sushi makes you feel japan and the miso soup is close to perfection.

Went here tonight for my son’s 18th birthday dinner and I cannot praise them enough! 5 stars doesn’t do justice to the excellent service I received. Working in retail/ hospitality myself, I know exactly how demanding it is and I can so without a doubt that Wagamama staff Lothian Rd branch were exceptional from our entrance, being greeted by Filipe ( he was so friendly, helpful and super professional) through to when my mum had to ask for no seseme seeds on her food, since she’s allergic to them (which I found the manager who came over to speak with her was sooo professional and friendly) and Martina the young lady who served us didn’t make it seem like it was her job at all. She made us feel welcome, she was attentive and polite also professional.
I won’t make this too long but just had to give praise to the excellent service I received tonight.
Also a special thank you to Filipe for actually wishing my son a happy birthday and didn’t make it seem like a part of his job. Great service, delicious food and polite, professional and friendly staff. Can’t go wrong here.
We will definetely be back!

First visit here for lunch we asked to join other diners at a table even though the restaurant was very quiet. We refused and were reseated. Second visit 6pm on a Wednesday night. Again restaurant was quiet and was asked to join other diners. When I said I would rather sit somewhere else I was escorted to the opposite site of the restaurant and asked to sit by the wall. Wagamama your customers come for delicious food not bad attitude from your door staff. Thankfully all other staff were brilliant.
