Worth every single calorie

We ordered 1 set meal and 1 ala carte dish. See pics. The price was OK for the quality, ambience of the restaurant and service provided. English menu is available. Other than us, there are good mixture of locals and tourists. I would recommend this place to those who want to have quality tonkatsu!

Whatever you read about this place to be a good place to eat a Tonkatsu, believe it, it is true. Specially the more expensive ones in the Menu. Go for it but get there early for lunch because the quantity is limited but worth every Yen you pay extra for. The restaurant is an ICON in Tokyo, very well recommended.... More

My visit to Maisen was as part of a conference that I was attending in Tokyo and marked the conference dinner so we were accompanied by a party of our Japanese hosts who had ordered the banquet for us. We had an elaborate multi-course meal washed down with beer and a special sake (a choice of hot or cold). The... More

Tonkatsu maisen Tokyu is located on Level 9 of Tokyu department store right next to Shibuya station. You can either take the lift or the escalator. Take a look at the photos for the store front!

I like going to Maisen whenever I am in Tokyo. It is the glorification of pork, with crispy outer skin and deliciously juicy thick meat. You get the special black sauce which is thicker than the normal sauce in the table. I recommend ordering the kurobuta set, special loin, its definitely worth the money. The set comes with boiled soup... More

We walked up on Maisen during lunchtime and there was a queue. We hopped in the line which was managed efficiently. Service was also efficient. There is an English menu but no spoken English. The atmosphere was much like a basic diner in the US. Most guests appeared to be locals and either families with children or businessmen looking for... More

You've got to love how the Japanese can take a good old western pork chop and turn it into an art form. We travelled across Tokyo for this famous food and we were not disappointed. Tender, succulent, crispy crumbed delicious pork was a true experience. Team it up with an Italian Sangiovese and you will be in seventh heaven. It... More

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.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

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.
