Wagamama has announced the full list of restaurants that will reopen from April 12.
Under current government plans for England, indoor dining will only be allowed after May 17 when Wagamama will look to reopen the remainder of its restaurants.
Since Wagamama has never taken bookings – it is staying true to this ethos and no pre-bookings are required.
A Wagamama spokesperson said: “We’re excited to begin this first stage of reopening and we’ve got some incredible new dishes for guests to try.
"We announced in January that we had developed our biggest vegan range ever, including our vegan chilli squid.
"But with some of these dishes not being suitable for our delivery and click + collect menu, guests are yet to try them.
"We can’t wait to re-open with these new vegan versions of our most iconic dishes. Our outdoor dining experience offers guests the same great Wagamama experience whilst complying with coronavirus safety regulations, ensuring both guest and staff safety.”
Wagamama is working with their charity partners Young Minds and mental health campaigner Ben West on its mission to ‘open up differently’.
Together they have sought to draw attention to the importance of mental wellbeing, especially amongst young people, which has been exacerbated by the isolation and loneliness felt during lockdown.
This has involved Wagamama positioning its iconic benches in key university cities and launching a limited-edition Katsu Smoothie in the run-up to re-opening. Both are designed to help get young people opening-up and talking, with all proceeds going to Young Minds.
See below the full list of Wagamama restaurants opening in Kent on April 12 and those which will have to wait a little longer.
