The best udon restaurant in Honolulu. All freshly made food including the noodles. There is a reason that the lines go around the corner for each meal. They serve the meal quickly and large portions.

Worth the wait! The best noodles of any kind that we’ve had. Make this a must on your visit to Oahu! We almost skipped out due to the long line. It went pretty fast though and we enjoyed an exceptional Japanese noodle meal.

I had the regular size nikutama with added bok choy and my husband had large nikutama curry with a spicy gekikara fireball. We also each had one piece of tempura. The line moves quickly and seating is cozy. The portions are generous and the nikutama...is very filling. This is our third time eating at a Marugame Udon restaurant and the food and experience are consistent at each one. If you enjoy udon, tempura or rice bowls with Japanese style toppings then you should give it a try. We arrived at 6:45 pm and waiting in line was approximately 25 minutes.More

First night had chicken teriyaki with udon noodles. So good I went back next night and got beef gyudon. Also excellent! Great alternative to over-priced Waikiki restaurants. Plus you can watch fresh udon noodles being made. Please bring one to South Austin. 🙏

Great udon noodles with flavorful broth. Skip the line by ordering takeout. You'll get everything you need to enjoy your meal at a picnic table or on your balcony.

Long line ups all the time but it is worth the wait with excellent value, reliable quality. The gentleman (wish i got his name) directing traffic avoiding people jumping the queue in taking table before getting their food. No where would you be able to...get what they offer at that $$.

I highly recommend the niku tama curry to go! They packaged udon and soup separately and you can eat good conditioned noodle at your home. 今やハワイの丸亀の行列は名物化しています。日本人以外の旅行者もこの物価高の中でも良心的で美味しい物は日本の宝と言っても過言でないかもしれません。昔より、お箸を上手に使う外国人が増えたものです。

I left Japan before this place became a national brand, but I heard that Marugame Udon is ubiquitous in Japan now. So I decided to give it a try when I visited Honolulu. I waited for like 20min for lunch. Judging from the line, you'd...wait probably like an hour at the peak time for dinner. THe problem is, we have to choose the toppings and siode dishes AFTER we order Udoin, and they started making. And tourists in Honolulu are not used to ordering quickly, when I finish paying, the Udon was soggy, and the soup was not hot enough. I didn't finish since it was not good. And this is not cheap. Considering the waiting time and the cost, it's totally not worth it. The service was not great either.More

This noodle palace is fantastic, and for a number of reasons. It is no surprise this place typically has 20 to 50 plus people waiting to get in. First, the noodles and toppings are fantastic, along with tempura! Second, it usually takes less than two...minutes AFTER you have ordered to get your food (which looks absolutely delicious). And third, the prices are extremely reasonable. A hint for those who hate the long lines. Just go to the "to go" window and order your food. Your order comes out in less than three-four minutes, and you can take it somewhere else to chow down!! This is by far the BEST food in Waikiki for the little $$ you pay..More

We have visited here previously and knew we had to come back because it was so good! We got a curry udon and a nikutama. There is a line out front as there is limited seating in the restaurant, however they have plenty of menus...posted. You order in a cafeteria style line and you pick up your udon at the end. There is a regular size and large size. Be aware that the large size is so large. The regular could really be considered a large by normal standards. After picking up your bowl you can add many different types of katsu and various tempura fried items. Then you find a place to sit yourself. You can watch the udon noodles being made fresh in house right in front of you. The udon noodles are amazing and the broth is good as well. This place is a must if you are looking for an amazing udon place!More
