Yes, you can get a pork cutlet, or a tonkatsu at lot's of places. But, why not have a good one? You can order from different grades of pork, who knew? Well chosen meat, cooked expertly, served traditionally.

I lived in Japan fro three years and Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin is on par with the best dishes I had there, both in terms of flavor and service. I had a hankering for Tonkatsu and this restaurant more than satisfied that craving.

First time at this restaurant. I do have a fondness for tonkatsu and noticed it last year so thought I’d give it a try this year. I was certainly not disappointed, the tonkatsu served was the authentic presentation along with the steamed rice and accompaniments....More

The specialty of this restaurant is breaded deep-fried pork. They are crispy outside and juicy inside. Their pork is flavorful and well prepared. The interior is well decorated and light but space is tight. The A/C is not strong enough and the ambiance is casual....More
