my friend recommended to try this place and it was worth it. I have tasted a lot of tonkatsu and this is probably one of the best. The pork tonkatsu is thick and very tasty. I feel like it almost melts in your mouth. the place is quite popular so expect long lines during peak hours. there is an english... More

I came to Maisen because my friend strongly recommended it. I had to see what the fuss was about. It was relatively easy to find. I alighted from the train at Otemo-sando. Right out from the station exit, there were signs point towards Maisen so all you have to do is follow them. I asked the waiter for a recommendation... More

I tried this restaurant for the first time during lunch time. But soon after I finished order, I realized I missed out the lunch special because English menu doesn't have that. They have everything in picture, so they could have put the special menu together with the English version, foreigners would be able to order despite it is in Japanese.... More

Had a great lunch here. We arrived at about 11:30am and had a relatively short wait of 15 minutes for a table. If you are traveling solo or as a couple you may get faster seating at the counter. The three of us in our party had variations on kurobota pork. Delicious tender pork on the inside and crispy coating... More

Had the regular tonkatsu. Delicious, the meat was not tough at all. Really enjoyed the various sauces provided. The service was good - the staff gave us a receptacle to put our bags as we were carrying quite a few, and the food came quickly even at dinnertime. Nice atmosphere, quite calm and not noisy.

I ate at Tonkatsu Maisen on the 9th floor food court of the Tokyu department store. Good lunch options for around 1000 yen. I had the tonkatsu pork cutlet with egg on rice. Very nice. Recommend for a quick lunch.

Our five point review: 1. Great lunch spot would go again but not for special occasion 2. Don't know why there was a wait given many empty tables at 2p on a Sunday 3. Special pork tonkatsu was tender on inside crispy on outside, the sauces were delicious 4. Nothing special about the service but very nice as is expected... More

Food: Had both the house special kurobota and the regular tonkatsu. Truth be told, I found both excellent and the difference (to me) was the special house sauce that comes with the kurobota. So I ordered another regular tonkatsu, put the special house sauce (for the kurobota) and voila, seventh heaven. Not cheap, but worth the premium. Location: Top floor... More

Highly recommend this place for all of desire to try Tonkatsu the first time. My girlfriend and I really felt embarrassed because of too many options on the menu. You could try many kind of Tonkatsu with reasonably priced. They had an English menu and services were excellent. I thinked it is the only fried food, which made me interest.... More
