The Al Fahim Company own the franchise for this brand in the Emirates and the official opening was attended by Saeed Al Fahim Chairman, Rashid Al Fahim Executive Director and Aamer Al Fahim Executive Director along with Anthony Liddiard CEO RMAL Hospitality, who represent the Al Fahim’s interest for their hospitality division.
Mr Liddiard, who introduced the concept to the dignitaries and guests for the opening, said: “wagamama is already known as one of the best places to eat out in Dubai, and the arrival of a second restaurant at The Greens will reinforce our reputation. Demand shows that people who eat out want quick, good value food with no compromise on quality and nutrition, and we expect the new restaurant to be enormously popular, especially when the delivery service starts later in the month. RMAL Hospitality will continue to expand the brand in Dubai and the Emirates over the next five years.”
Andreas Karlsson, International Business Development Executive for wagamama is also due to travel to other countries in this region to secure more sites for future development of the wagamama brand in the Middle East.
Situated in the small shopping arcade at The Greens, with easy access from the residential areas and the Sheikh Zayed Road, this new noodle bar is perfect for a fast casual lunch, an easy bite after work or even a quick, tasty dinner. It will be equally convenient for shoppers, local residents and workers.
Today wagamama is a global concern, with a total of 65 noodle bars around the world
including branches in the UK, Ireland, Holland, Australia, Antwerp, Auckland, Copenhagen, Istanbul and Dubai. When Dubai wagamama first opened there was only seven international restaurants but now there are 22 outside of the UK, with many more at the development stage.
wagamama is the world’s leading noodle restaurant. Great food, sleek minimalist design and a vibrant, buzzing atmosphere make wagamama one of the coolest places to dine. It has established its reputation as supplier of the highest quality in noodle menus, using only the best ingredients, served in their freshest possible condition proving that ‘fast food’ can be extremely good food.
The wagamama menu, based round noodles, presents diners with an extensive choice of freshly prepared meat, seafood and vegetarian pan-Asian dishes – all cooked to order and speedily served in a totally non-smoking environment, reflecting the trade mark of positive eating + positive living
The design ethos of all the existing restaurants has been maintained, fusing high and low tech in wagamama’s commitment to progressive design. This restaurant has the famous hallmark maple bench seating, stainless steel kitchens, while also incorporating new finishes and features.
Over 500 people previewed the new restaurant at The Greens before the official opening date, as part of the rigorous training programme and Dubai diners are now expected to flock to the new site and enjoy the menu delights.
