Wagamama Brighton

Although Wagamamas could be likened to Mc Donald’s, this contemporary and largely westernised Japanese chain has received a good reception in Brighton, and it makes a great addition to this part of the North Laine, which has seen the development of the city library, a new hotel and a range of other ‘chain’ restaurants.

Dining in Brighton’s Wagamama’s is like being in a contemporary canteen, perhaps even reminiscent of the school dinner hall, with its rows of benches, sloping ceiling, open-air kitchen on one side and floor to ceiling windows on the other.

Operating a “we’ll bring both your starters and main to your table when it’s ready” you might find you’re eating your main course whilst your partner is still on their drink – but at least you can be sure your food will be hot.

This place can and does get extremely busy, particularly at weekend, so be prepared to queue. 

What we ordered:

– Seafood Ramen (Japanese soup with squid, tiger prawns, fish, spring onions and bamboo shots) £9.00

– Chicken Katsu Curry (Breaded chicken and rice with curry sauce) £7.75

– (steamed Soya beans with salt) £3.50

– Sprite £3.70


£23.90 for two


Wagamamas usually have a range special offers and money off vouchers, so be sure to check their website and the local press, particularly The Argus newspaper.


Fresh fast food, friendly staff and reasonably priced – however if you were looking for authenticity, I would perhaps looks elsewhere.
