A very long line up for broth that was too salty and food that was very greasy. Won't eat here again. A much better bet is Gyoza no Osho in Dukes Lane.

I absolutely love the food here. The udon noodles are cooked to perfection. I like this udon even better than what I've eaten in Japan + I love picking out the goodies like tempura veggies and inari. Also, it's crazy cheap for Waikiki. My husband and I spend $13 total for lunch. In the evening there's usually a massive line... More

if you love your noodles you must come here for food when in Waikiki. Seriously. Good food, quick service and great options. Choices are noodles, tempura and sushi. Reasonable prices for waikiki too.

$3.75 for a regular size bowl of udon! SO CHEAP! however it adds up if you start adding different tempuras. Service is quick here. Udon is good; I really like the texture of the udon; definitely not the same ones you get from the supermarket that comes in a packet. it's got a good chewiness and it wasn't too doughy.... More

Long lines have dissuaded us from going the last time around, but we went before 8am and now this would be my favorite breakfast spot in Waikiki. Delicious udon + tempura + reasonable prices = I'll be back.

We managed to go mid afternoon and there wasn't a line at all. So that was a win. Even with that the staff is quick - but not personable at all. The food while hot - was average. Nothing too special considering all the other reviews rave about it. Maybe it was just us, but my friend and I both... More

One of those local places that puts out consistent fresh good food. I cannot believe I waited in line for 1/2 hour. It was worth it, watching the noodles made fresh in the window while waiting only added to my mouth watering. We both had the curry (I highly recommend it) with some tempura shrimp and veg. This place is... More

Waiting in line is half the fun of the experience here. The udon is good but not outstanding; the broth is not served piping hot, and the curry is a tad too salty. On the other hand, the tempura is very good, and the chicken karaage excellent - especially when they just come out of the deep fryer. Efficient management,... More

Having been to Japan and Korea numerous times for work and vacation over several years, i was quite familiar with what a bowl of good udon should taste like, and the Marukame would do its heritage proud. The udon had a really good texture - firm and spongy at the same time with the classic "slipperiness" characteristic of good Japanese... More

Stumbled across this restaurant while walking around and saw the long queue of diners so decided to come back the next night to try it our and glad we did. The queue moves along quite quickly. There are samples dishes in the window so you can see what you are buying. When you get to the counter just order your... More
