Abu Dhabi is set to welcome its first Wagamama - and we're not quite sure what took them so long.
The Asian-inspired chain is a popular fixture in cities across the world.
But it has finally arrived in the UAE capital as it opens in Abu Dhabi Mall on October 31.
It brings the number of Wagamamas in the UAE to eight, including a handful in Dubai.
So we'll soon be tucking into restaurant favourites such as katsu curry and chilli squid.
Elias Madbak, director of operations at RMAL Hospitality, franchise partner for the brand in the UAE, said: "The arrival of Wagamama at Abu Dhabi Mall is an important milestone for the brand as we continue to deliver food that’s good for the soul, in a warm and friendly atmosphere."
What's more, the branch will soon be debuting its plant-based vegan range, which is sure to go down a treat.
