Wagamama opens doors to 7th restaurant in the UAE

Introduces tasty breakfast menu with a Japanese twist!

Global restaurant brand Wagamama is delighted to open the doors to its 7th restaurant in the UAE, in Dubai’s Marina Mall, offering fresh, Japanese-inspired dishes to residents and visitors. The beloved brand also introduces its breakfast menu to the Middle East for the first time. It will be available daily from 8am until 12 noon exclusively at Marina Mall, and on weekends in the other Wagamama restaurants.

With a range of breakfast dishes inspired by both the east and the west, visitors can enjoy Wagamama’s signature okonomiyaki, a Japanese inspired omelet, as well as favourites like eggs benedict, avocado on toast, English breakfast, and apple & goji berry pancakes, all which reflect the global brand’s positive eating philosophy and are designed to provide a nourishing start to any day. Little noodlers are in for a treat as Wagamama’s new breakfast menu offers healthy and nutritious dishes like mini egg on toast, mini pancakes and mini English breakfast, so there is something for the entire family. 

Wagamama Marina Mall is situated at the heart of Dubai’s Marina community and spans over 3,000 sq. ft. The 134-seat restaurant includes both indoor and outdoor seating with scenic views to the waterside, where residents, businesses, and visitors can enjoy Wagamama’s classic and popular dishes like katsu curry, prawn firecracker, hearty ramens and rice bowls, in addition to a tasty breakfast. 

The first Wagamama restaurant in the UAE opened at Crowne Plaza on Sheikh Zayed Road in 2004 whilst 2018 saw the arrival of the largest venue to date within The Dubai Mall, and the brand’s first restaurant in Sharjah. Wagamama will soon expand to the capital with the opening of its first restaurant in Abu Dhabi later this year.

Elias Madbak, Managing Director at RMAL Hospitality, franchise partner for the Wagamama brand in the UAE remarked: “We are excited to add another location to our expanding portfolio in the UAE, bringing fresh Japanese-inspired cuisine to the heart of Dubai Marina. We are even more excited to be introducing the breakfast menu to our Wagamama restaurants for the first time in the region, which will enhance the overall experience for all our guests”.

The opening signifies the wider expansion plan of RMAL Hospitality, the franchise partner for the brand, to deliver world-class restaurant experiences to the UAE residents and visitors.
