Best Tonkatsu in town

Very traditional. Large selection of pork cutlets. We went for the best one / juicy / tender - the sauce is of course unique . Not a foreigner in site. We saw japanese families and couples queuing up. This is a traditional place in a very hip neighborhood .

I am unable to find the Hikarie branch, so I am reviewing it here instead. Set on the top floor of Hikarie, this location is very easy to reach, and the orchestrated chaos of Shibuya is just at your doorstep. The small restaurant is an offshoot of the original. Head to the original instead, as the pork tasted much better... More

A perfect place to try tonkatsu, the breaded pork cutlet. Prices vary depending on the cut, but having sampled a few, even the cheapest melts in your mouth.

Highly recommend you have the Okita-Kurobuta if you like pork. It is fried in a delicate panko style crumbed coating and a special sauce and simple - rice, shredded cabbage and miso accompany it. Simple and very delicious. Service was friendly and faultless.

I ordered the normal tonkatsu which is 1700yen if I did not remember wrongly. It was the BEST tonkatsu I have tried in my life, not that i have eaten many but the meat was so tender I don't really need to bite/tear it off, it just melt in my mouth. There's free flow of cabbage and rice too, just... More

Tonkatsu Maisen is known to be one of the best places to go to for port cutlet. I had the prawn cutlet set which was one of the best I've had. My friend had the port cutlet and thought that the one served at the Aoyama Honten branch (the one everyone raves about) was much fresher. I would go back... More

Very good, I always thought tonkatsus were a bit tough, but here they're tender as -!@&- and they have a delicious Katsu sauce. Wish they could make the curry spicier though. There are many katsu spots in Tokyo, I'm sure you can find one cheaper equivalent in taste. Try hole in the walls?

My first Tonkatsu (pork cutlet). It was OK. I'm not a fan of anything fried but it appears this dish needs to be tried so I did. I actually find it a bit pricey for the offering. Service is great. Worth trying it once for me...

My wife and son were in the area and I had seen this place reviewed so we tried it out and was worth the money. Not expensive, and they had specials for take out in the back of the menu. Of the 3 meals we got they all were about the same quality. Not greasy, and good tasting. The portions... More

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
