Wagamama, one of the leading pan-Asian restaurant operators, is pleased to announce a partnership with Travel Food Services (TFS), India’s travel food & retail company, which will see it enter India later this year, in response to significant demand for the brand in the country. Following the expansion, Wagamama will operate in 19 countries worldwide and continue to enjoy global appeal.

Wagamama will initially open in Mumbai Airport’s International Terminal with the ambition for further expansion in transport hubs across the country. Mumbai’s status as India’s financial hub, coupled with the airport’s connectivity across Europe, the Middle East and Asia, make it the ideal location to introduce Wagamama to new customers alongside travellers who are already familiar with the brand.


Wagamama is a popular pan-Asian casual dining brand in the United Kingdom. Its success spans from its commitment to menu innovation, food quality and ensuring it delivers a consistent proposition to every guest. It is recognised worldwide for its iconic dishes, including grilled chicken ramen, firecracker and chicken katsu curry, and offers an evolving menu which caters to a range of dietary preferences, including 50% of its menu consisting of plant-based options. The move into the Indian market is the latest chapter in the success of Wagamama.

Thomas Heier, CEO of Wagamama, commented, “We are delighted to enter India later this year through our partnership with Travel Food Services, bringing our pan-Asian cuisine to a market where we anticipate significant demand. We look forward to working closely with TFS to scale our presence across India, as we continue our international expansion into exciting growth markets.”

Varun Kapur, Executive Director of Travel Food Services, said, “Wagamama is a brand which is highly regarded worldwide, and we are thrilled to introduce it to the travelling public in India. We look forward to opening the sites and welcoming customers through its doors later this year.”
