Parking space not available. You have to look for an available slot near the area. We parked our car a block away. There are limited options on the menu – no pictures as well, so if you're not familiar with Japanese Menu, it will be hard for you to decide what to eat. You can always ask though or check... More

For first timers, strongly suggest the Chicken Katsu... a little spicy but top it off with Jap Mayo to the spiciness over. Place is ok, but you don't go here for the ambiance. parking is a perennial problem. so get ready to wait long or walk or risk parking where your side mirrors are 50/50. i lost mine during a...

Food was great I like the sukiyaki. We arrived at 1:00pm on a Sunday and line is a bit long but still we stayed and wait for our turn. Food is not that expensive. 👍🏻👍🏻

The food is nice and affordable, but it is just like any other Japanese resto. The service is good, tho.

Their bestseller chicken katsu is good. Not impressed though. But with the price, this can be regarded as a fast food type of Japanese food.

Crazy Katsu tries to be a hole-in-wall type restaurant that seems to promise good food. At best, it's no different from the Japanese themed fast food stalls in the food courts at malls.

I decided to try Crazy Katsu because I saw it featured on TV. However, I was greatly disappointed by the quality of food served in this restaurant. I travel to Japan frequently and I definitely know the authentic taste and aroma of Japanese cuisine. From what I ordered at Crazy Katsu (Katsu Curry, Chicken Katsu Salad, Sukuyaki), I can say...

Been one of my favorite go to restaurants since college - great and filling eats for cheap! Happy to know that dishes are still reasonably priced until now and food quality hasn't waned despite its brand's growing popularity. It makes me sad to say that the one down side of the place is a huge chunk of the full dining... More

I have been to Crazy Katsu many times. I loved it! But recently, the sauce is less, the chilli is less, and the rice is less. Still has great taste I loved from the start though! :)

One of our foodtrips in maginhawa is in this small, simple and cozy place that serves japanese food. Whenever we pass by this place, it is always packed with people. Even the queue for the waiting line is long. We tried it on an off peak hour so we wont fall in line. The menu is very simple. You will... More
