Marukame Udon usually has a long line so we planned to arrive just before they opened for lunch. Our wait was short. Udon is very good and very reasonably priced. The establishment is clean and well maintained. However, I don't think I would wait in a long line for this type of cuisine.

On our past trips to Waikiki, we've noticed the long lines but never ate here, so on our latest trip, we decided to try the place out. To avoid the long lines, we went there mid-afternoon after the lunch crowd thinned out. We ordered udon, and I also had the tempura. The noodles were freshly made, and the broth was... More

Be prepared for a line-up to get into the place. We went at 7:00pm and waited about 30 minutes in the lineup outside on the sidewalk. The staff seem to "meter" the traffic so you won't end up buying food and then standing in the middle of the restaurant with no place to sit. We found the musubi and the... More

While in Hawaii we stumble upon this place the first night we were there. The line up was very long but we waited. The line up goes fast. The food is very good. Love the Fried spam with seaweed. This place a must for everyone!!

Noodles are made fresh and in front of you. Try the curry broth with meat, it's my favorite. Shrimp tempura is one of the best I've had. Actually all the different types of tempura are good.

Honestly, if you're not convinced by the title of my review that you should go there, you're crazy. It's so good!! I love the curry udon, the burakakke udon and of course the tempura! Make sure that you try the vegetable tempura because it's crazy. It's so good.

I think what attracts people is not the good taste of the noodle, but the long waited queue outside their restaurant. I'm attracted by the queue too, but I don't think their noodle taste that good.

Hot fresh udon soup for under $7 in Waikiki. You can order with either sukiyaki beef, curry,or soft boiled egg. Variety of tempura fried delicacies can be ordered on the side. Udon was perfectly done with just a slight chewiness. Broth was rich and tasty. Tempura veggies were done right and not greasy. Definitely a must try when you visit... More

Every night this place has a long line so we tried it for lunch, and at 11:20 am there were only 2-3 people in front of us. By 11:45 am the line was at least 25-30 people long. I'm not sure it would be worth waiting honestly. The noodles are decent and with the right mix of toppings it's a... More
