Fantastic tonkatsu!

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... read 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.

Nothing bad about the place - just another pricey Orchard Road establishment with serviceable Japanese food. Nothing to write home about. Food is okay, service is not bad. Ask for a table near the window, if you are going there anyway.

Tonkichi - Isetan Scotts 350 Orchard Rd, L4 Shaw House We like the Kuro Kata Rosu (Black Pork) better than the Hire Set. The pork was delicious and tender. We also ordered the Chawanmushi, the Vegetable Tempura and the Tori Mix set. The Chawanmushi was so so. But the portions were generous and value for money. The service was a... More

My girl friend brought me here many years ago and since then I am hooked! This is my favorite restaurant for tonkatsu whenever I visit Singapore. Food is consistently good!!! This time round I ordered the mixed seafood katsu set combo instead of my normal pork combo. My verdict? Selection of seafood were really fresh especially the oysters. Katsus were... More

Visited the orchard central branch a couple of times. Love the tonkatsu. Yummy pork. Go for the the combo type so that you can enjoy difference cuts of the pork. Good service by staffs too.
