Went in at 2 30 pm on Thursday, placed my order and waited. 15 mins later, still no sign of my food OR tea. Called the manager, he said he'll check. Then comes the server asking about what I ordered. Apparently, she took my order then went to do something and totally forgot about my order! There was 1 other... More

Great family meal at Tonkichi at Ngee Ann City. Service was ok, ambience was good. In any case, we loved the pork with the large helpings shredded cabbage.

Our last visit to Tonkichi was a few years ago - happily the quality of their Katsu is as awesome as we remembered ! We ordered both Japanese and USA version of the Kurobuta Rosu Katsu. Both equally fantastic! The thickness of the pork cutlet was just right and texture was tender n juicy. Service was great - free flow... More

We found this restaurant whilst looking for somewhere on Orchard Rd, which wouldn't involve re-mortgaging. The meal was quick and extremely tasty (we both had chicken Katsu Curry!). The restaurant is also in a great area, to go shopping or the cinema afterwards. Try and get a booth by the window for a great view of Orchard Road

This place specialises in the tonkatsu - breaded and deep fried pork chops. The Rosu Katsu is the fattier, juicier one, but I like to go for the Rosu Katsu Toji, where the pork cutlet comes in a claypot filled with sauce, and egg, and is just delicious. Free refills of rice and miso soup, and make sure you ask... More

I used to think that Tonkichi is one of the best tonkatsu restaurant in Singapore. But now it taste no longer good. I ordered kurobuta and its not as nice as before, the cut is thinner, the sauce is not nice.

Best Katsu ever!!! Been there so many times and never got sick of it. Food is so good. Katsu is the best ive ever tried and the rice is very fragrant. Recommend the one in Orchard Central ! Price is reasonable for the quality you're getting. Only disappointing part was the Kushiyaki wasnt that good.

While I believe this place is known for fried food, we all had sashimi, rolls and noodle dishes which were all very good. The salmon roll was quiet large and the sushi very tender. Worth stopping by if you are in the mall.
