Wife and I read good things about this place so we have it a try around 3pm when the line isn't as long. It's a quick trip through the line choosing your noodle bowl and broth, either hot or cold. Then you can add many types of tempura meats and vegetables. All the bowls are under $10 and the amount... More

This was one if my originally planned food adventures but with the huge line you kno they must be doing something right. We went in for dinner and waited around 40 minutes (some guests were were waiting longer) and the line didn't really grow shorter despite light rain and no shelter. The service was efficient, the staff helpful and the... More

I will definitely come here again! Noodle was so soft but chewy and broth was so tasty too. Price of a udon bowl is pretty affordable until you add some tempura varities! But I think it was worth the money.

In the insanely expensive Waikiki restaurant scene, there is a small haven called Marukame, where you can get fresh, authentic food for a reasonable price. There is a reason there is frequently a long line. Table saving is not allowed and unnecessary. There are always people finishing as you get your meal. Choose a broth (fish-based I'm told), and then... More

We waited for about 45mins to get in and it was worth it. The curry ramen and cold beef ramen were both delicious. Personally I would skip the tempera as their coating was too thick and not crispy enough.

I am not a udon fan and I did not finish the udon I ordered. I give this a 5 star because of the taste of the soup and the price for the meal. I had a beef udon and eggs. the beef was delicious. The eggs were cooked in perfection. The hard boil egg white was cooked while the... More

I love watching the udon get made. All is self serve here. Udon noodles are thicker than usual. Tempura is perfectly flaky. I could come here every day. Always packed. At 4pm though at least we didn't have to wait. Sometimes there is a line out the door.

Cafeteria style restaurant which serves fresh made udon. You pick out and add extras to your udon like prawn tempura ($1.75 per piece), or vegetable tempura ($1.50). Just before paying, you can add chopped spring onions and crispy tempura bits (no charge). A regular bowl of Kake Udon (udon with fish broth) is $3.50. Add $1 for a large bowl... More
