My favorite Japanese noodle house never fails to impress. Not your ordinary noodle house. Go for the cold udon with natto if you want something unusual and rustic. Everything is good.

I come here often, they have the best selection of udon noodle dishes that I've found on island. I see crowds lining up at Marukame for udon, but I don't know why they don't just come here instead. They serve udon and soba noodles in a variety of hot and cold manner. They also have some donburi dishes and appetizers... More

I'm a haole who has been coming here for years. The curry udon is one of the most delicious dishes I have ever had anywhere. The noodles are fresh and perfectly cooked and the broth complements them perfectly. Other dishes seem equally well prepared and the cost is inexpensive. Service is also friendly and efficient for a very busy place.

We prefer to arrive at 5PM as they open to avoid the dinner rush..... by 5:30, the place is almost filled with other diners. This is a small, out of the way place in a strip mall on King that makes fresh udon noodles daily. They cater mostly to locals. We ordered the Stir Fry Udon with Shrimp and the... More

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 specials-- the basic udon meals run around $9.50. Someone in our party... 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.
