Wagamama brings its bright, bustling noodle bar to the heart of St Andrew Square.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Taking over an impressive two-storey space in St Andrew Square is the most recent Wagamama Edinburgh opening. A starter of gyoza – five dimpled and delicate dumplings – can be ordered with a range of fillings and come steamed or fried with a dipping sauce, while seasoned crispy chicken pieces are served with a spiced sesame and soy sauce with fresh lime. Choose a big bowl of steaming noodle and rich broth ramen, available here in many varieties, enjoyed supped from a traditional bowl. Or perhaps try a chicken or vegetable katsu curry, served with a portion of sticky rice smothered in sweet fruity sauce. It’s always worth leaving a space for pud – the white chocolate and ginger cheesecake or the coconut ice-cream sprinkled with coconut flakes and passion fruit sauce are a dream. There's plenty of vegan and vegetarian options and it’s also super child-friendly, with appropriately sized portions of some of the restaurant's favourites for the wee ones.
