wagamama opens UAE flagship restaurant in The Dubai Mall

January 31, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

Japanese-inspired pan-Asian restaurant wagamama opened its UAE flagship restaurant in The Dubai Mall, located in the Star Atrium and within walking distance to Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain.

The restaurant is modern in design and features the same concept as London’s flagship branch in Covent Garden, with trademark minimalist communal dining tables. Seating 150 customers the venue spans more than 4,000 sqft, including an extended outside terrace.

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

“Today’s official opening is a significant milestone for RMAL and wagamama. We are excited to be at the iconic The Dubai Mall,” says Elias Madbak, director of operations at RMAL Hospitality.

“We are elated to launch wagamama’s flagship restaurant at this iconic location, bringing this lively brand and its fresh Asian-inspired cuisine to a wider, local audience,” adds Mandeep Sandhu, group PR and marketing manager of RMAL Hospitality.

The new locations brings the number of wagamama locations across the UAE to five, with two more in development for 2018. The first wagamama restaurant opened at Crowne Plaza on Sheikh Zayed Road followed by the Greens, Jumeirah Beach Residence and Palm Jumeirah in 2004, 2007 and 2015, respectively.

Customers can enjoy signature dishes inspired by the brand’s positive eating philosophy, offering fresh food cooked to order in a centralised open kitchen. The menu includes all of wagamama’s iconic main dishes such as chicken katsu curry, ramen noodles and donburi bowls; and signature sides such as gyozas, chilli squid and hirata buns alongside an extensive choice of fresh juices, mocktails and desserts.
