In my opinion, the best udon on the island. The savory broth and their skinny udon noodles (cost 50 cents extra) are my staple here. I normally get the Oyakodon / udon combo (only $12.90 dinner / $11.50 lunch), and I leave stuffed. It's not a fancy place, just great noodles.Recommended for:

Stranded on a busy street between downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, you might not even this noodle shop if you didn't know to look for it. But step inside and slurp a bowl of handmade soba and udon noodles in a savory broth to die for. Totally worth a detour if you love authentic Japanese food.Recommended for:

A budget meal! Many of the noodle soups are just under $10. I really enjoyed the chewy, fresh, homemade udon noodles here. Menu includes a variety of options and toppings. Some days they run out of soup (it happened to me and I had to find another alternative for dinner) so maybe call in beforehand.Recommended for:

The udon and noodle options at Jimbo are perfect for a rainy day or evening in Honolulu.limited parking available in front, or use the parking lot around the back. Lunch specials are a great deal too! I usually opt for a curry/rice combo with udon. Yum!

People rave about the noodles served here, and I have to admit I haven't tried them, but Jimbo's was the first place I enjoyed Japanese curry shortly after arriving in Hawaii. I had the curry with corn, and it was a pallet expanding experience that helped me break out of my mainland food bias and enjoy the eclectic mix of Asian and pacific cuisine so readily available in Hawaii. The establishment is very hard to spot if you don't know exactly where you are going, and thanks to the one way traffic on the street on which it is situated, passing it by requires a time consuming loop back around if you aren't over searching already. It's really worth the effort though, and, after the absolutely delicious meal I enjoyed there, I imagine everything on the menu is quality.
