Ever grabbed a hot piece of meat from hot oil? That’s what chefs here do all day long! Ask to sit on the counter on the ground floor versus upstairs seating, although there may be a long waiting period. They will be happy to give...More

They only have like 3 choices of menu, and they can't speak english at all :) be prepared to line up, the queue is pretty long, but the restaurant is pretty big and they have bench so you don't have to stand for queue. The...More

I have been going to Tonki for over 50 years and have never had a bad meal. Expect lines but the wait is worth it. Try the "HIr-re" - the filet. Watch the precision of the kitchen on the first floor but sit upstairs if...More

The restaurant has a large room with a central counter, and long benches on the sides where customers wait their turn. People keep coming non stop and the guy in charge has them sit around in apparent random sections on the benches. It looks like...More

Some friends have recommended the place, and although is usually somewhat crowded I decided to give a try after some 6 y ears living in the area. The regular tonkatsu fillet was nicely cooked, very tender and served with the original house sauce and all...More

They've perfected their craft over decades. There is not much more to add to other reviews. This place is truly amazing. Our favorite meal on our visit to Tokyo!

Not that this place would need any more praise but I just had to: the place, the food and the people are simply amazing and we will surely be back on our next visit! It is no secret that the tonkatsu (and the side dishes!)...More

Travelled all the way to try the tonkatsu. It was pretty average, felt the fats was too much for my liking. First floor was quite lively (we sat on second floor which was quiet). We arrived early for dinner around 5pm so there was no...More

I first discovered this place in the 1970’s and had already been in business for over 30 years. Tonki’s secret? A simple menu, great pork and good service. They open for dinner at 4 pm and there is always a line waiting. Sit at the...More

My expectations were high. After all this is a restaurant that opened in 1939. It remains extremely popular. They only serve tonkatsu, fatty or lean. Soup, salad and rice are served along with your order. I did find the meat bland. It’s a good thing...More

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
