Udon Maruka Reviews

Hands down the best Udon we had in our two-week Japan trip. Affordable, speedy, and absolutely delicious. Arrived 15 minutes before opening, and we were around the 15th group in line. Fortunately, the line moved swiftly, and we got seated in less than 30 minutes. Ordering in line was a bit tricky as the menu was only in Japanese, so heads up for that. Both the Kitsune and Niku Udon and ebi/chicken tempura were fantastic. Noticed an even longer line forming as we left, so keep that in mind.


IT IS SOOOOO GOOD!!! Super down to earth and local. Cute and cozy store where everyone just eats and leaves. They take order while you’re in the line so you pretty much get the food a few minutes after you get seated. Most people here get a udon + a tempura (4 kinda for choice), I got the fish cake and it’s absolutely the best I’ve ever had. AND SO AFFORDABLE. Come visit!!!


It's definitely top 3 udon in tokyo, super nice udon with awesome soup, good technique of cooking tempura, not too heavy but super soft and tender. It's definitely worth to visit and eat.
