There will be a queue but don't worry, it moves. You will also wonder if you'll get a seat but you will - it's a sit down, eat and go restaurant so tables clear quickly. The noodles are cooked to order and served with a delicious broth. You can also add pieces of tempura as a side. We had sweet... More

Simple delicious noodles cafeteria style, also great tempura. Too bad it is usually so busy. A wonderful spot in Waikiki.

The noodles are fresh and it's entertaining to watch them make it. There a whole bunch of add on choices as you pass through the line. It gets busy on rush hours but more likely worth the wait.

There's a long line when you arrive, but it moved pretty quickly. Once you're inside you pick an option and tell it to the server, and by the time you get to the till, your food is ready. Very good value, especially adding a couple of tempura on too. The food was delicious and very filling.

Good thing the line moves fast--cafeteria style ordering but you get to watch them roll, cut and cook the noodles while you are in line. One line descriptions of the dishes are a bit limiting and when I asked what the special was as there is only a name and picture, the person taking orders couldn't really tell me any... More

Prepare yourself for a long standing line we always try to go during slow times. It's so good though. Think of McDonalds but with udon. U basically pick your broth and toppings. Then they have all this fried goodness which is constantly being made. The only negative is it's hard to tell how fresh the piece of fried item is.... More

3 months before we want to Hawaii we went to Japan. We absolutely loved the food there so we checked out Marukame Udon. We were absolutely overwhelmed with how good the food there was! The noodles were perfect, the broth was delicous and savory and the tempura was so good we ate so much that we could almost roll home!... More

Don't be scared off by the line, it moves quickly. We ate here with a group of seven and had no problem getting tables together. The food is very good and inexpensive. Given the prices at some places in Waikiki, this is a nice alternative. Unfortunately, as good as the food was, the menu was challenging for us given that... More

Although the line was long, it moved fast. The udon is so good and very reasonable. The assorted tempuras was excellent...crispy with a light batter. I had the sweet potato tempura, kabocha tempura, and the chicken tempura. All were sooooo delicious!!

That's the question, after waiting 30 or so minutes (small line today) we got our fresh udon and yes there are great but damn they love salt, everything is over the top salty so drink up and enjoy:)

Thank Fgermilli
