Tasty authentic udon with a variety of ways you like it done, such as curry udon, cold udon, udon in hot broth etc. and choice of tempura sides! Very satisfying meal. Highly recommend the spam musubi, first time we tried that!

We drove past numerous times on the way back to our accommodation and couldn't believe the line. When we checked the reviews decided we better have a try. We were lucky enough to strike it in between the lines because we walked straight in and then the line up began! Delicious! We both had the beef udon soup and then... More

We spotted Marukame Udon shortly after arriving in Waikiki and, being fond of Japanese food, couldn't wait to try it out. The thing that really attracts you to Marukame is the long line of people waiting to eat there at dinner time ... every single day! It wasn't till late in our holiday that we finally made it there, but... More

Cheap and somewhat healthy. A must try. You can even watch as they make the noodles. Don't let the line scare you!

I thought this place was selling ice cream from the look of the line at the door but it was an Udon Noodle place! Line moved fast and got the regular size noodle bowl with the curry broth two pieces of flash fried bonless chicken and mushrooms all for $9.00. Great deal on a great meal, went back a 2nd... More

I was the only one in our group who had ever eaten udon. I spent two years in Japan and had udon on several occasions and enjoyed it although I do preferred other Japanese cuisine to udon, but the group was looking for something different. We arrived at an optimal time as we waited only about 10 minutes. I helped... More

This is a simple place to get fresh made udon. You have a few soup options such as curry. Once you get your udon, you can add tempura, vegetables or inari. It does get crowded and once you get your food, you might have to wait for a table. This is a cafeteria style, counter service place with 2 and... More

I had never had udon noodles before and my daughter said try them. This is a local Japanese eatery, not a fancy sit down restaurant. It is the real thing. I think we were one of the few people who were not local or visiting Japanese tourists. Someone showed us how the place works. You wait in line, pick how... More

Get there early, this place opens at 11 and there was a line around the building prior to this. Having said that the menu is pretty basic. I had the Curry Udon (mild) and seafood tempura. Good place to go if your looking for great udon.
