Really Good

We dined at the Lachic outlet on the 7th Floor. The tonkatsu was really good, in the miso sauce. A different but pleasant taste and flavour. The staff who waited on us were very warm, helpful and friendly. Fortunately, we got there early and were given a table straight away.

Great pork dishes. Fairly heavy in flavour (like all katsu dishes) and the miso sauce is very unique. There are so many branches of this restaurant that we had no problems finding it. Lines are still long though.

The special is in their sauce. Ask for the English menu if you are struggling with the Japanese. A queue of 20 mins is expected and they have a great system of getting you a table. You order as you wait and the food is on your table less than a minute after you are seated. Happy people arrive all... More

The place was easy to find. Service was great. Foods were delicious! Must try their specialty: miso tongatsu (fried pork chops with miso sauce)

If you want a taste of real Japanese food ( Tonkatsu ), this is one of the place to be. Only, we waited for 25 minutes before we were seated but it's worth it.

Yabaton is synonymous with red miso tonkatsu, and as a Nagoya specialty, we make this a must-stop. We went to the branch in the Meitetsu department store (9th floor) next to Nagoya station. Although there was a line, it moved quickly. We waited for less than 15 minutes, so don't be discouraged because the turnover is fast. While we waited,... More

I went there with my family during busy lunch time. They provide menu in multiple languages which is really good. The queue was not so long approx. 15 minutes of waiting. We were asked to order while waiting in the queue, so do the others. The food are ready just a short moment after we got the table. The taste... More

I had the sandwich with the fried pork chunks inside. The sauce is ok and the meat is crunchy. But the sandwich was cold and a bit soggy. Nothing special.

Misokatsu or breaded pork chops coming with miso sauce is distinctly Nagoya. This is the shop to get the original. Though I like fillet since they're more tender. Wide choices are offered, meat and seafood alike. can come with unlimited rice... Truly a Nagoya Classic
