Must be lining up...

The long queue in the front of the venue, that`s a common picture. But the placing the orders and processing them go very quickly. The udon is great, good cooked and tasty, with the choice of some additions. And surprisingly cheap, like for Waikiki dinning. Highly recommended.

Don't let the long line at the door scare you. There is a reason there is a line and it is worth the wait. The Udon is fantastic. Very tasty and authentic. The tempura chicken, shrimp and eggplant were outstanding. I wish I had one of these in my home town!!

You can see them make the fresh noodles, boil them & prepare the portions for your order from the sidewalk. We had the curry udon, tempura shrimps & vegetable balls & sweet potato. Everything was delish. This is a popular eating spot for a quick meal. The line up for lunch & dinner is extremely long. We normally eat off... More

The line up is always long, though it moves rather fast. There are times when the line is a little shorter, but generally speaking, there is always a queue. A bowl of udon was very affordable and for a good size. The noodles had the perfect texture and taste, which made for a nice, easy meal when paired with the... More

Everytime I am in Waikiki, I usually return to Marukame at least 3 times. To avoid long line ups, we dine in at breakfast (between 7-10am) when it isn't as busy, come in for lunch right around 10:50 for the 11am opening and avoid it completely after 5:30pm when the line up starts to form for dinner. Udon is fresh... More

An udon place that is fabulous! It is like a virtual buffet line. When you stand in line, you keep thinking that the seats will fill up. It usually doesn't. Most importantly, the food is really great for the price. Try it.

Always a long line, that moves quickly through the cafeteria style serving. I ordered a shredded beef broth Udon soup, it was more then enough for 2 meals or to share...under $7 for a large....Mostly Asian diners but some tourists too.

As other reviewers indicated this is a great place for noodles: price is right, food is great and the experience fun. We visited at 1:45 PM and two people ahead of us in line. Extremely easy to order and the process is extremely efficient. The noodles are perfectly done, the broth tasty and the tempura a great addition.

At 7.00pm you could see people queuing up, a very long line so I decided to come back in the morning for breakfast. 8am great only us, service was quick, staff efficient, food ready in 5 minutes.

Stand in a line, choose your noodles, your base meats/vegies and then throw in some extras at the end. Strange concept to us westerners, but thoroughly enjoyed our mean and experience. Would recommend to anyone nearby to give it a try! Quite popular it seems so expect a line.
