Loved sitting at the bar here and watching the guys wheel out portion after portion of Tonkatsu. Apparently this place opened in 1939, and it looked like one of the chefs may well have been here since then, but despite his advanced years he masterfully...More

...this place epitomizes it! A family-run tonkatsu specialist for 60 years, it's menu basically has only three choices - filet, roast (loin) or kushikatsu (skewers with onion) dinner sets. But just sit at the counter and watch efficiency, teamwork and precision choreography at work, as...More

The food here smelt and looked amazing and I'm sure it tasted fantastic. Was very excited to try it and happy to wait as long as it took. The only problem is that many people who came in after us were seated and fed before...More

Every time I visit Tokyo, I always go here. And every time I go, it's always crowded but turnover is very quick. Food is Tonkatsu (pork cutlet), and quality is always good. You can have as many refills on cabbage, rice and tonjiru (pork based...More

It's not trendy and don't expect a big menu with lots of gourmet dishes. It's plain and simple and it serves fried pork in three different ways. The sidings are the same no matter the type of pork you choose. And yet, it's its simplicity,...More

First visited in 1978 and the service, atmosphere and quality of food is just as good. The restaurant has been refurbished since my last visit in 2005. So good that we had a takeaway portion to use for tonkatsu sando the next day. Highly recommended

We went there to eat tonkatsu, but came out full and wonderfully satisfied by the fried pork cutlet (tender and not oily at all), finely chopped cabbage, wonderful rice, pickled vegetables and a pork based miso soup. What was amazing however was how the workers...More

If you are in the neighborhood and you are up to for some Tonkatsu you should come here. I loved watching these 4 older guys (grandpas) doing their magic.

Specialized Tonkatsu restaurant with excellent quality and taste. The menu is deep fried pork only, but at excellent quality and expertly prepared. Diners can watch the cooking action and see their food being prepared - this alone would be worth a visit, as the kitchen...More
