    The line moves fast. Had 50 people in front of me and it only took 25 mins to get to the door. Plus, no matter the wait IT IS WORTH IT!!! Try the ontama udon; it has a soft boiled egg. Nom!

    If heaven was Japanese, it would be Marukame! :) Hand made udon, delicious warm broth, spam misubi, and buffet style assortment of tempura and onigiri... This means, bring out your stretch pants! :)

    Make sure to tell them it's "TO GO" when you order from the girl if you're not eating there. They get irritated if they have to transfer from bowl to the take out containers. Phenomenal food!

    Great value for delicious food. The line goes by quickly and the staff is super friendly. Try the curry udon and pair it with any tempura. If there isn't any tempura left, order it at the cashier.

    The #10 with cold broth is amazing! The egg was cooked perfectly and I love how they put the scallions and crunchy bits in your udon. Line moves fast, but you'll probably end up waiting a bit.

    WORTH THE WAIT. Trust us- we saw the lines and wanted to skip it, but it's deceiving. There were approx 30 people in front of us. The line went fast and was well worth it. A must-try when here.

    We aten NIKUTAMA udong, ZARU udong and fried shrimp. all of them taste good. but, nikutama udong was a little salt. When I visited here at lunch time so I waited just a 15min.

    Nikutama Udon meat was sweet with a savory broth. Always get the soft egg upgrade. Better curry at cocos. Use the house sauces. Shrimp or any veggie tempura are the best.

    Their udon is made in house and just good! I had the curry udon. I love how you get to select all the tempura you want. The shrimp tempura is a must. And grab the spam musubi as a snack to go.

    Had the Niku, curry and Kake udon. My fav -Niku udon. Curry was good too. Kake is just plain broth. Sweet potato tempura - delicious. limited seating -especially if you are a party of more than 2.

    The line outside moves quickly, don't let it discourage you! Udon noodles can be ordered hot or cold, perfect for warm weather. They now accepts both cash and cards.

    Come early (like 7am) if you want to avoid a long line up to taste the udon and tempura at this very very popular Japanese restaurant. Open for breakfast.

    So good!!! The Niku Udon is the perfect amount of meat to the awesome noodles. Curry Udon is amazing. The fried stuff is okay... No free refills on fountain drinks. Really fast service.

    Had beef in broth udon 16 on the menu if I remember correctly. Very good. I didn't care much for the tempora veggies need something to dip them in. Also, there are no restrooms.

    Watching the noodle maker in action is entertainment in itself. But once you dine here you'll see why there's a line outside during peak lunch and dinner times. Excellent food!

    Good service! If you want something to be made right before you want to pay, ask the staff if they can make one and they will bring it to your table so you won't have to wait in line!

    May not be worth the wait.. I've tried the curry and ontama and it is good udon/Japanese curry, but not exceptional. You can find the same quality and flavor at any good Japanese restaurant.

    I'd pass on the tempura crumble topping next time. They get soggy and kinda gross real quick. Great tempura selection! My eyes were bigger than my stomach and I was KO'd afterwards - careful!

    Udon are awesome! For the tempura check out the vegetable balls. Be prepared to wait, even if line goes fast. Must go in Waikiki!

    The line up is due to cafeteria style food ordering and seating. Fast turnover rate in seating so the wait isn't too long. They make the udon right in front of you. You get to see it raw>cut>cooked!

    My husband recommend the #8 and it was cooked perfectly. The egg, scallions and crunchy bits were awesome. The deep fried chicken, pumpkin and sweet potato was amazing!!

    I've had the Curry and Niku which are both quite good. I added the soft egg and extra beef since there isn't really a lot. My favourite sides were the chicken and the pumpkin

    Curry udon is delicious and prices are reasonable. Under $10. you have to be careful with your cloth especially you are not used to with chopsticks.

    Delicious udon!! Kake udon + egg, negi and tempura flakes. Great selection of tempura. Noodles made fresh there. Shichimi is available near the renge. Not a huge line around 3 pm.

    Curry Union is fantastic and I don't even like Udon. But the noodles are made fresh right in front of you. Also the soft boiled egg is such a delight

    Udon and tempura are good but I prefer the shop closer to Chinatown. It's bigger and has more seating. Good value for your money.

    I got their udon to go and it was mouthwatering good. I highly recommend waiting in line to try their food. The broth was creamy and flavorful.

    Long line up. Best handmade udon noodles in Hawaii. It's very cheap and freshly made. And no tips!!

    Unique cafeteria style restaurant where you can "design" your own Udon bowl by adding whatever sides you like. They don't accept cards despite of being located in the middle of Waikiki.

    The udon 🍜 is awesome and you can't beat how much you get for the price. I got all this for $11.70

    Try the Curry Udon - They make their own noodles. Delicious! We went a few minutes after closing time and they were still busy but very accommodating.

    Don't be scared of the long line, it moves fast! As others have mentioned, cash only. Well worth your time; easily amongst the very best cheap eats in Waikiki. Highly recommended.

    Marukame is ok. There's a pretty long line and in my opinion it's not exactly worth the wait. Homemade noodles with a variety of broths either veggie or beef.
