The noodles are made freshly in front of you, there was a long queue but it was so worth the wait, once I tried the udon I realised why it was so busy and popular. There is a small selection but that's what made it so great. simple and easy. I highly recommend this place it's fantastic value for money.

When you have a line out the door swirling around the sidewalk, you know it's gotta be good. I liked their efficiency in serving and keeping the line moving. The noodles were awesome, and the broth pretty good. I enjoyed all the sides as well. Good stuff.

Yummy udon in a simple restaurant model. Very popular, but the line moves quick. Good cheap eats. Everything is made onsite.

Good, authentic Japanese udon (in my opinion ). Along with a variety of udon there is self serve tempura selections that you pay by the piece. Musubi with spam too. Very reasonable prices. Especially for Hawaii.

We visited last night Marukame after reviewing it on Tripadvisor and seeing the "always long" waiting list outside (figuring it must be great). The good thing is the line moves quickly, only took us about 50 minutes to reach the serving area...

The restaurant has a simple menu: Udon noodles (in a few options, about a dozen: with egg, with sweet beef, plain, etc.). All options are available hot and cold.

In addition they have a nice Vegetable / Seafood / Chicken tempura area (great with noodles or by themselves!).

The noodles were pretty good, as was the tempura. The Udon were right at their cooking point, and the tempura was fresh and crispy.

Prices are adfordable as well. The average tempura is between $1.5 to $3, and the noodles vary from $9 to $15 depending on the selection.

This is a nice place for noodles, but in my opinion not worth the long line. If you are walking by, and find a short line or no line, then go ahead, but not worth the long wait in line...
