Since starting life in the basement here in 1992, this chain of noodle bars has become an international phenomenon, with branches as far afield as Cyprus, Boston and New Zealand. It has changed hands twice since being founded nearly two decades years ago, most recently in 2011.
The British Wagamamas all serve the same menu: rice plate meals and Japanese ramen, soba and udon noodles, cooked teppanyaki-style on a flat griddle or simmered in huge bowls of spicy soup, all served in double-quick time.
The use of good-quality ingredients raises the chain above many of its imitators, but how much you enjoy the food will depend on how much you like canteen-style dining.
