I'm not the biggest fan of pork but when in Japan.... Even though the pork filet was fried, it wasn't super greasy and in a way felt light. Tasty meal, good service. We sat at the counter and got the watch as all the meals were prepared. Such precision!

Their donkatsu is well known to be delicious while the typical long queue in front of the restaurant often exhausts our tummy. Department store offers a great convenience to experience the taste of the famous cuisine. I went their around 3, and ordered without waiting. They have 3 grades of the meat selection, the cheapest option was sufficiently satisfiable for... More

I've been to Maisen numerous times, normally to the shop off of Omotesando. This was first time to the one in Daimaru Bldg. Somehow it seemed slightly less delicious - meat was a bit drier and 'mealier' than normal. Not sure if it was the particular piece of pork or the shop. Will perhaps stick to the shop near Omotesando.

Is the Long Queue worth it? Definitely is one of the good tonkatsu restaurant during our visit to Japan. The pork is juicy and very tender, definitely live up to the famous name.

I'm on a bit of a Tonkatsu binge on our 3 week trip to Japan. This is the third establishment we've tried and probably #3 of 3. It's in the Daimaru Department Store building at the Tokyo Station - location is a plus. The tonkatsu is high quality. The menu is great as it explains in English the difference in... More

My wife was not thrilled, since deep-fried anything has little appeal to her, and while the tonkatsu was indeed delicious, it certainly was heavy on the breading, and light on the meat. It also looked identical to every piece of tonkatsu I saw all over Japan. A curious extra at the restaurant is all the cabbage you can eat.

The best pork cutlet I've ever had and I don't even usually like pork! Sauce was great - slightly tart & zingy! Go early to avoid the queues!

Hard to find so we hopped a taxi for three blocks but we might not have found it otherwise. Luckily someone at the next table spoke some English and pointed out to us The best choice which was only 1420 yen or about $18. It was one of the few without a photo so we wouldn't have picked it.

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
