With a nice view of Edinburgh castle, we enjoyed our Japanese lunch at this Wagamama restaurant. Although it is a large restaurant chain, the atmosphere at this location is like being in a unique restaurant. The food and service were good, also price wise.

Amazing atmosphere, really cozy and has got this genuine Japanese street food feel to it. The ramen portions are massive, so better be proper hungry. The service is quick, so no long waiting for food.

Third time here and it's still wonderful! Good value for the quality of food, and they have a menu with the gluten free options marked. I was brought a GF soy sauce (tamari) for my sashimi, nigiri, and maki. All of it delicious!
