Delicious homemade udon and soba

This noodle shop is consistently good. They have an expanded menu featuring Jidori chicken with their regular entrees of hot and cold udon. They now offer many combinations too. Nabe, curry, tempura, teishoku dishes with mini udon sets. The prices range from 12-15.00. They offer lunch and dinner... read more

4 of us friends stopped by for lunch as we were in town shopping nearby and looking for a place to go for lunch. My friend and I had just picked up a couple of friends returning from a trip to Arizona. They were hungry for something local and we were near this restaurant so we decided to stop in... More

Tasty warm udon on a cold night! The noodles were the right consistency, firm but not chewy. The soup had a light flavor with NO MSG! The tempura udon was nice, with a few pieces of fresh tempura (we had the shrimp and vegetable) and a bowl of hot udon. The service was very friendly, explaining dishes to us and... More

A friend had a list of restaurants to check out while we stayed in Honolulu and Jimbo was on it, with a description saying that it had some of the best curry udon she had ever had. We went to check it out - we would not have found it without the list since it was just a hole in... More

Akira Kurosawa once wrote that, after all's said and done, he just craves a down-home tempura udon. Now living far, far away from any semblance of simple yet fresh and tasty Japanese eats, I make sure to get to Jimbo whenever I'm back in H-town. Parking is Japanese style, too (tiny and competitive, unless you get there by 11:30a) but... More

This is a small local restaurant, but the food is definitely worth a visit. This is going to be Japanese food. I love their combination plates, and this is one of our favorites to visit on our trips to Oahu.

Jimbo is our favorite Japanese restaurant in Honolulu. Everything on the lunch and dinner menu is good but my favorte is the Ebi Donburi. Jimbo gets really busy but we never mind waiting outside for several minutes to get seated because it's always worth it. Quality of food is consistently good, wait time for orders is quick and service is... More

The service, food and sanitation was just terrible! The waiter skipped us and when I asked why larger groups are seated before us, he started making excuses. The udon & rice was over cooked, the kitchen looked disgusting and to finish the night, we found a huge dead roach behind our table. Will never go back again.

The noodle is softer than the udon we tried at kuhio avenue, waikiki. The soup is definitely better taste than the famous udon store on kuhio. We drank all soup of the scramble egg and spinach udon. We tried the fried moshi and it's not our type of tea. We will go back for their udon and soup again.

This restaurant was reviewed by the Hawaiian Airlines magazine so we decided to drive over from the beach hotel. It's a small humble place with a simple menu, a nice change from the tourism of Waikiki. Our family loved the udon, curry and agedashi tofu. We felt like locals. We have a big family so it took a little more... More
