*Our Story*

'Kaizen', meaning *'good change'* is the philosophy that sits right at our heart. It shapes every dish we create and pushes us to find better ways in all that we do. We're restless spirits, forever creating and making things better.

Inspired by fast-paced, Japanese ramen bars and a celebration of Asian food, Wagamama burst into life. We set out to create a unique way of eating bringing the fresh, nourishing flavors of Asia to all.

We've been practicing kaizen since 1992, when we opened our first doors in London's Bloomsbury. We first opened our US restaurant in 2007 in Boston's Faneuil Hall, 13 years later we have expanded to 5 sites across Boston and New York City. Now that we are well-settled into the cities of Boston and NYC our expansion across America begins in the Southeast with sites in Atlanta, Tampa and Arlington, VA! We are committed to developing a vibrant, successful business within the USA.
