A popular British restaurant chain known as Wagamama which has become a global brand is again entering into the Middle East market with another branch. The restaurant chain is making a debut and opening its first restaurant in Abu Dhabi.
This new restaurant will be launched at Abu Dhabi Mall on October 31 which will bring the number of locations across the UAE to eight. The retailer said the opening marks a new chapter in the wider expansion plans for the restaurant brand across the UAE and a growing presence in neighboring GCC countries.
“The arrival of wagamama at Abu Dhabi mall is an important milestone for the brand as we continue to deliver food that’s good for the soul, in a warm and friendly atmosphere,” said Elias Madbak, director of operations at RMAL Hospitality, franchise partner for the brand in the UAE.
The first ever Wagamama restaurant of the UAE was opened at Crowne Plaza on Sheikh Zayed Road in 2004. However, the new restaurant will witness the arrival of the largest venue to date within the Dubai Mall, and the brand’s first restaurant in Sharjah.
Also, the company stated that it lately launched the newest branch in Dubai’s Marina Mall alongside a successful introduction of its breakfast menu for the first time in the Middle East. It also mentioned that it will soon be debuting its plant-based vegan menu at the new Abu Dhabi restaurant.
Talking about Wagamama, it is a Japanese-inspired pan-asian restaurant which launched globally in London in 1992. The chain now operates in 26 countries which include over 190 restaurants, with 130 being in the United Kingdom.
