Wagamama is one the UK’s most popular chain restaurants, famous for its signature Katsu Curry. The restaurant has been welcoming back diners following the reopening of the hospitality sector on July 4, and is now including all of its restaurants in the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme.
This means you can get half-price meals and non-alcoholic drinks at the pan Asian chain every Monday to Wednesday of this month.
Everything on the menu has 50 per cent off, up to £10 a head, excluding alcohol as long as you dine-in.
Many Brits have already flocked to their favourite cafes and restaurants to get the new deal in the first 24 hours.
To find a Wagamama near you, you can use their restaurant locator or use the Government’s postcode checker which will tell you which restaurants near you are taking part in the scheme.
Prices are the same at all 135 of the chain’s restaurants.
The Eat Out to Help Out scheme was announced last month by Rishi Sunak, and will run for the duration of August.
This means that everyone in Britain is entitled to discounts at selected restaurants over a total period of 13 days next month.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak said: “Our ‘eat out to help out’ scheme’s number one aim is to help protect the jobs of 1.8 million chefs, waiters and restaurateurs by boosting demand and getting customers through the door.

“The industry is a vital ingredient to our economy and it’s been hit hard by coronavirus, so enjoy summer safely by showing your favourite places your support – we’ll pay half.”
The scheme starts on Monday, August 3 and runs until Monday, August 31.
All you have to do is turn up, eat, and pay for the remainder of the bill.
There’s no minimum spend required to get the discount and there’s no limit on the number of times you can use it each day.
No vouchers are required to use the offer, with the participating establishment deducting 50 percent from the bill and charging the discount to the Treasury.
Eat Out to Help Out is part of a range of targeted measures brought in by the Chancellor to combat the economic effects of coronavirus.
Also brought in to help the industry is a cut in VAT for hospitality and tourism businesses.
The scheme – like other coronavirus measures – is always kept under review, and so could be extended beyond the end of next month, although the Government has not said there are plans for this at present.
Restaurants, pubs and other parts of the hospitality sector were allowed to reopen from July 4, after months of being closed in lockdown.
