Marugame Udon

Japan’s favourite hand-made udon kitchen.

The Story


Born in Japan in 2000, Marugame Udon holds true to the authentic tradition of Sanuki udon which started centuries ago in the Kagawa Prefecture in the southern part of Japan.

Marugame Udon provides hand crafted udon bowls and tempura from a lively open kitchen, allowing guests to watch as their food is prepared.

Making Udon noodles in the Marugame way is a long, time-consuming craft. Making daily from simple three ingredients, flour, water and salt in our open kitchen, we stick to what we do because we want our customers to enjoy the best taste and texture of real Sanuki udon from Japan.
