Tasty but avoid the lines.

I was intrigued by the lines that formed down the sidewalk at this place every day in the evening. So one afternoon being hungry and seeing no real line at all I decided to try it. Its a small place but seating seems to rotate well due the way the line works. You go through the line and first... read more

We had to wait in line to get seated. Once in though the food was very good. It was an experience. I will be back again in November.

I've never had udon before, and this place turned me into a fan. Noodles were very good, as were the tempura veggies. It's set up like a cafeteria, where you order your noodles and then grab any side dishes you want, such as tempura veggies or meat, or musubi. There are several kinds of seasonings by the cash register that... More

Love to watch the staff make the Udon on-hand/in-person! It was a lot of fun & pretty awesome experience! There's a huge line up for a reason! There's only one real reason to come here - amazing food (Udon & side dishes were amazing). The sitting area itself is jam packed...although the downside is there's no washroom available onsite.

I waited in line for 35 minutes but I assure you it was well worth it. The price was cheap and the quality was great. All the noodles are hand made right in front of you. This is a must have.

Very popular udon joint. Yes there is a line, it's cafeteria style, and it moves quickly. Noodles are made right before your eyes. They are a delicious taste and texture. Flavourful broth and many different tempura veg to choose from , all make for a comforting meal. Staff are polite and good at explaining everything you need with ordering and... More

Value of food was great. Tempura was excellent! Very small seating not for large groups. Poor a/c. Value of amount of food for price was great.

Best udon in Honolulu by far. Fish based broth with steak and onions was fantastic. Large bowl only $6.75 and the quality is very high. Handmade noodles made right in front of you while waiting in a cafeteria style restaurant. Will go back many times while here in Waikiki.

A very popular place in Waikiki , that always has a line to get into out the front. Don't be put off by the line, as it moves very fast and the food is well worth the wait. The noodles are made right in front of you, the service is excellent and the prices very cheap. We went there several... More

This place normally has long lines during peak hours. The line moves pretty efficient, it took us about ~35 minutes. The staff is friendly......while waiting one can observe how the system works. You can see the udon being made, cook and serve. The menu is easy to understand - listed type of udon (cold or hot serve and regular or... More
