I never skip here for 28 years whenever I go to Tokyo. Try the best in their menu. My best restaurant in Japan.

My daughter and I went here for dinner I am a hearty pescatarian. I could not find a single thing on the menu that I thought I could eat. We had to leave. I would ONLY select this restaurant if you like fried pork...

I went to eat for lunch, but it was a wonderful quality. We were able to refill and satisfy rice as well.

Located in an old Japanese bathhouse (which makes for a great environment for a meal!), Maisen serves the best tonkatsu meals you can find, including several varieties of Kurobuta pork. It is expensive, but worth every yen. Highly recommended, and when we visit Tokyo the...More

Service is really good and the pork to die for. Tried the Katsudon and it was delicious. The best I had and I tried many tonkatsu places. Very filling and not expensive considering what you get. I'll definitely go back when I'm in Tokyo again.

Definitely one of the best tonkatsu I had during my trip. Is not oily, yet the meat is so juicy and tender! The special sauce just add on to the deliciousness. Can be bit pricey as a set can go up to around 3000 yen...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

Hi Ivy, Apologies for late response, didn't get notified! I can't remember exactly but probably no fish, chicken maybe... :) I think they do have prawn or seafood choices, very limited though.

We went for lunch at 11:00 a.m. and didn't have a reservation and we got in right away. When we left around noon there was a long line of people waiting to go in.
