Uni udon is amazing
LA Weekly
Marugame Monzo in Little Tokyo is sit-down and upscale, at least for a noodle joint, with black, lacquered tables and a feel that's downright sleek.
Los Angeles Times
Sea urchin cream udon is one of the more creative noodle dishes offered here.
Chloe Wong
Add green onion to everything.

If you havent been here before ask to clarify the add ons ie nori is tempura nori and the seaweed they give you is wakame

You really can't go wrong at this place. Go with a small party at lunch or get there at 5 or it'll take awhile for you to get a table.

Uni Udon and all side dishes are fried!
Serious Eats
Hand cut udon is the star of the show at this Little Tokyo noodle shop that mixes Japanese and Italian flavors. 4 stars.

The udon here is made fresh right before your eyes. The uni udon was creamy, rich, and delicious!

Request to sit @the bar so you can watch them make the noodles fresh. It can be a LONG wait so don't go there starving.
Whitney Hu
Fresh noodles! Highly recommend the tempura add-ins.

This place sucks ass! Servers not so bright! Sucka Fish!

Start out with some fine tempura, like the savory soft boiled egg fried in a light crunchy batter, before the main event: sea urchin cream udon ($15.95).
