Usually a long line but it moves fairly quickly. Not for large parties-- prob 4 or less cause seating is first come first served-seated. You may not sit together. Noodles are tasty, broth is about average to above average. Some locals but primarily tourist scene. I'd return but only if walking by and the line wasn't too long.

This place has them lined up to get in. Once you get in side and eat your wait will be rewarded. This is a full filling meal to say the least. Enjoy!

Tip - Go early and get in line...this place is one block off the beach on the mail drag and VERY popular. Very good food, super friendly 'ALOHA' staff and big portions

Yes the lines are long but well worth the wait. I always get the curry udon with the sides of egg, shrimp tempura, fish cake and onion. Watch it this will add up but it's still comes out cheaper than going somewhere else. Even with the long lines getting a table isn't a problem. So while on Kuhio Ave and... More

I was looking for this place while driving and it wasn't difficult to spot because of the long lines. The next morning I went for a jog and swung past the shop before 6:45 am and the kitchen was already busy preparing. I decided to run back and drag my family out for breakfast which is available from 7 -... More

I've heard of this Udon shop during our previous visit but didn't stop in because it was so crowded. I can't stand waiting in lines because I'm impatient but did so here because of what I've heard. I knew the place had to be good because of the long lines out the door. On this trip, there was just a... More

This may be one of the least expensive dinners you can get in Waikiki. It is an easy walk from most of the hotels and even though there was quite a long line outside, it moved quickly. When you reach the inside you collect a tray and get to choose which udon you want. The cooks assemble it for you... More

We ate here twice for dinner,. It made a nice change from eating at a restaurant. We enjoyed the Curry noodle soup and the Garlic Chicken Salad with noodles. Our fussy children also liked it so it was a hit for the whole family. This is a great place for lunch or dinner when you feel like something nutritious, fast... More

Feeding a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenagers) this was the cheapest meal we had in Waikiki (see photo of reciept). Our kids loved they could choose whatever they wanted and they went crazy for the tempura. All our choices of Udon and tempura was excellent and we walked out with our tummies full and satisfied with a... More
