Wagamama has become a favourite place to eat out for vegans. In October 2021, they announced their menu would be 50% plant-based. From curries to stir fries, there is something for all Asian food lovers here. So, we recommend it highly!

Serving food inspired by Japan, this chain is becoming more and more popular. Since opening in 1992, the restaurant has become a staple of the British high street. Read on to find out all the treats you will find at the chain.
