Had a really great lunch. Food was fresh and very tasty. Found the staff to be so lovely and accomodating.

Katsu was decent, perhaps a bit greasy but still ok. However the cashier, a guy with short hair and skinny, treated everyone coming to the store badly as if he was racist. Im an Asian and as I entered the store, he asked us if...More

You must come with a big appetite. The menu is limited. Lots of fried pork options. Servings are big. I thought the fried pork was nice, crushed sesane sauce was good however I felt like it was a dressed up 'parmi'. You'll know what I...More

We ate lunch here one day. The staff were very helpful in accomodating us and they are child friendly which helps as we were travelling with a toddler. The food is tasty and well priced. I would recommend this as a good lunch option.

Unless you are looking for it, you would not easily find this charming restaurant on an alley off of a big shopping street. It's really busy but we did not wait long for a comfy table for four. The menu is simple and self explanatory...More

I'm not really that big a fan of fried cutlets but the pork katsu at this restaurant was amazing. Not oily, great flavor and a great sauce that you create by mixing with ground sesame seeds. The simple cabbage slaw was also delicious due to...More

Food and atmosphere was great. Only problem is so many people like myself have gone there because of the great reviews on trip advisor it almost feels like you are in America or Australia given the predominant accents in the place.

This place serves great quality tonkatsu pork. Their set menu comes with unlimited barley rice, miso soup and cabbage. The side sauces were very tasty. You can also choose from different breeds and cuts of pork. We chose the lowest quality cut and breed (as...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
