Wagamama restaurant numbers in the United Kingdom (UK) 2014-2019

As of April 2019, there were 135 Wagamama restaurants in the United Kingdom (UK). This was an increase of five restaurants since 2018.


Wagamama is a restaurant chain serving Japanese inspired Asian cuisine. The brand originated in the UK, where its headquarters is still based, with its first store opening in Bloomsbury, Central London in 1992. Wagamama’s revenue from its UK restaurants has grown consistently in line with its rising restaurant numbers. Thanks to this growth, the brand now ranks among the leading casual dining restaurant brands in the UK. The company also operates restaurants in the United States and has franchised restaurants in other international markets.

Who is buying out Wagamama?

In autumn 2018, a takeover of Wagamama by The Restaurant Group was approved. The Restaurant Group is a major player in the UK casual dining market, owning several other casual restaurant brands, the most prominent of these being Frankie and Benny’s.
