If you want to experience a traditional Japanese meal in a simple and typical atmosphere try Butagumi. We discovered it thanks to the concierge of our hotel and it was a great recommendation. There are so many types of pork meat to choose from that you might feel lost, but any type you choose I'm sure it will be excellent.

This restaurant is located a far way from the nearest station (Nogizaka) so be prepared for a 15 minute walk from the station. It is located on a side street parallel to the main road leading to the nearby park/cemetery. Once you've found the place you will be amazed. You can pick and choose a particular type of pork cut/type... More

Everyone recommended me the famous Maisen, but it is a chain restaurant. So I was looking for a more authentic restaurant, and I found Butagumi on the web. This restaurant is a real gem. It is not far from Roppongi and Shibuya station. About the meat: it is juicy, and you can choose between different porks. And you have free... More

I visited Butagumi Restaurant during my journey in Japan last August, with my wife and a couple of friends. We had the best Tonkatsu we ever eat!! Restaurant has a great atmosphere and service was kindly (as usual in Japan!) I recommend it to all Tokyo visitors!

Been coming here for the past 5 years and i must say it's the best tonkatsu ever. Expect the price to be a lot higher than you usual tonkatsu joint and its mainly because of the kinds and quality of pork that they serve thats been sourced all over the different prefectures in Japan. Iberico pork from Spain is also... More

We have been coming to Buta Gumi for years every time we are in Tokyo. Many different cuts of varieties of pork from quite expensive to quite reasonable. All delicious. The aka-dashi miso with little pippies is delicious and a second serving is free as is the finely shredded cabbage. The waitress advises you to have your first piece of... More

Fantastic food and atmosphere. Well suited for romantic or business dinner, located a few steps away from Roppongi. No english speaking though.

If you are looking for the ultimate tonkatsu experience, this is the place to be. With about nearly 30 and above different kind of pork tonkatsu, this is a paradise for the lovers. We had the iberico tonkatsu and it was just a wonderful experience. Warrant another visit asap!

If you are looking for other things beside tonkatsu, don't bother going. Because you will be missing out in the best thing served in this restaurant. We had iberico and Tokyo-x. Both are quite different and we enjoyed it very much. It is quite pricey but definitely worthy. Juice yummy and I will definitely go back if I visit Tokyo... More
