If you've ever wondered what a traditional Japanese noodle house looks like...this place is as close as you get outside Japan itself. And being located in central Waikiki is the perfect walking spot. Yes, there is a line. Yes, you're probably not sure what to order if you're new to udon style food. Yes, it's the freshest noodles. Yes, staff... More

There's a long line for a reason. It's super tasty noodles and tempura at the right price. I mean $4-5 for noodles & a buck a piece for tempura??!! Yes, please. You can't go wrong here. Worth the wait. I like when they have the udon salad special. I miss the fountain Fanta ginger ale, tho. That was so good.... More

Yes there is always a long line, but it is worth the wait and moves fairly quickly. Really cheap so nice on the hip pocket. But the best bit is that its fresh, tasty and hot. And you get to watch them making the udon while you wait in line. Great for a cheap and tasty and fresh meal.

This is my number one choice for a hot bowl of fresh noodles. Always crowded but well worth the wait. Tempura is also awesome. Always fun to eat at Marukame Udon. Great food.

Not a huge fan of udon but my wife loves it, both of us ended up enjoying it so much that we have been back during the same trip. $6 as an average for a bowl of udon plus extra per piece of tempura. If you are hungry get the large Udon but the tempura is a little overrated as... More

I am not an Udon guy, the visit to this place changed my view. Their curry udon is the best one I have tried. The cost is <$5.50 a bowl. I returned there one more time and tried other variety before I left Hawaii. I tried the tempura (shrimp, mushroom, others) and most of them are not that great (average... More
