Authentic Katsu Don in a shopping centre.... who would of thought.

Generally I would avoid restaurants in shopping centres like the plague as I have had some dreadful culinary experiences in them, but in Singapore that rule doesn't really apply.

The fried pork is nice so is the oyster (have to eat it while is... More

Good food and service, but mostly fried items are nice. Good mortar and pestle to grind the sesame seeds to make your own dip.

This restaurant is located on the 3rd floor of Shaw House. They serve Tonkatsu and other deep-fried items. The tonkatsu include different cuts of meat, such as the pork loin and tenderloin. There's also fried oyster which I love and always order. They have sets available, so its easy to order. Rice and sliced cabbage is free-flow. Try it!

First ate at Tonkichi few years ago at Changi Airport, and felt they were quite an authentic Tonkatsu place in Singapore similar like those in Japan where you grind your own sesame seeds with a bowl and wooden stick. They also provided instructions what sauce to use and the cabbage were free flow. Went to Tonkichi at Ngee Ann City... More

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
