“Good Food, Good Value”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

My Wife found this place and I am glad she did. We ate here three times during our 7 day trip to Oahu. The Uon disk have great favor and the selection of Tempora was large and tasted great. And all this great food was sold at a great price, My wife and I ate all three time for under $25. Be aware there is a line at this place, and can take at lease 20 mins to get in to door to order.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

The best noodle bar setup I have seen, pick what udon noodle dish you would like and then choose from the huge array of tempura prawns, vegetables, chicken, fish and much much more. You hand pick all your tempura assortments yourself for an extremely cheap price. Also great watching the chefs hand making all their own udon noodles in the front window of the shop!!! Very cool and enjoyable, a must do while you are here.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

Well, I guess it depends on how long the line is.=)

We were lucky today. We got in with virtually no line but as soon as we sat down to start eating, the line was out the door.

But the udon was great. My wife and I shared a large curry udon with some sides: shrimp tempura, some kind of fried chicken and a musabi. Had to wait a while for a new batch of shrimp but it was worth it.

Will be back! As long as the line is not too long!

“Incredible and Cheap!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

They literally make your noodles while you stand in line (no worries - it is very efficient) and the result is sheer bliss. One of the few restaurants in the states that can do tempura as well as you will get in Japan. $7 for dinner in Honolulu made it simply perfect.

“Best udon outside of Japan”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

No Wonder why There us a Line up every evening. This place serves one of the best udon noodles I have eaten. Don't be discouraged by the line up. It goes pretty fast.

Reasonably priced, cozy atmosphere and excellent shrimp tempura, a must if you are a Japanese food lover!
