Wagamama (UK) Opens First Sharjah Restaurant

16 May 2018 - Located in Al Juraina District within the newly opened mall Zero 6, the debut restaurant offers seating for 110 customers within a contemporary dining space spanning 180 square metres including wagamama’s trademark communal dining tables and outdoor terrace area.

wagamama presents its signature menu consisting of a variety of noodle, rice and salad main courses, side dishes, desserts and fresh juices all prepared in an open kitchen. The brand’s positive eating philosophy combined with fresh food that’s cooked to order opens just in time for Ramadan with dine-in and takeaway options.

The new branch brings the total number of wagamama locations across the UAE to six, with wider expansion taking place in 2018 within Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The first wagamama restaurant opened at Crowne Plaza on Sheikh Zayed Road in 2004 whilst early 2018 saw the arrival of the largest venue to date within The Dubai Mall.

Elias Madbak, managing director at RMAL Hospitality, franchise partner for the brand in the UAE said: “We are excited to launch wagamama in another emirate bringing fresh Japanese-inspired cuisine to diners in Sharjah for the first time”

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